Shibanuma dark soy sauce is a type of Japanese soy sauce that is known for its rich and bold flavour. Made using a traditional brewing process that involves a long ageing period, resulting in a dark, thick, and intensely flavourful sauce!
Commonly used in Japanese cuisine as a seasoning for various dishes, such as stir-fry, marinades, and sauces. It is often used in combination with other ingredients to add depth and complexity to the flavour profile of a dish.
The ageing process allows the sauce to develop its deep colour, thick texture, and complex flavour profile, with a deep, savoury taste with a slightly sweet undertone and a pronounced umami flavour.
