Tamari Sauce

€17,00 EUR

  • Gluten Free Tamari Sauce
  • Coat and bake: Try coating chicken, vegetables, rice cakes, etc with a little bit and grilling 
  • Use tamari in place of salt whenever the recipe calls for it.  Tamari’s low sodium count makes it possible to reduce your intake by around 30% without having to compromise flavour

This Hon Tamari soy sauce appears on the surface of soy miso when it matures naturally, after 18 long months. It is diluted with water to make it more fluid. 

During the Kamakura period (1185-1333), Hon Tamari was the staple seasoning. Hon means "real". As for Tamari, it is the liquid obtained from the natural fermentation of Hatcho Miso. Note that it takes on a pretty reddish colour when heated.

When miso is finished maturing, a small amount of liquid "miso tamari" accumulates on the surface.  It is like a soy sauce made only with soybeans and salt without using wheat. A rare seasoning that can take only 0.3% from 10 tons of miso. It has more than three times the umami of regular soy sauce. Enjoy the umami of soybeans, which has been condensed to the limit through long-term ageing.

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design. We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to our modern lifestyle. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.

Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.

Our selection of Japanese food is also based on craftsmanship in agriculture. We choose brands based on how they are made and we love brands that continue to use traditional natural techniques to grow food and prepare it. Good packaging and design is always and added joy to find!
