Best soy sauce!

The go-to soy sauce I use when cooking my Korean recipes. It has a more salter and sweeter flavour than the soy sauce Kikkoman. Also think Kikkoman is a little bit more sour than this. So this is essential to your Korean cooking!


Amazing soy sauce!

Will keep it short: Great soy sauce which outclasses anything brewed locally in Europe! Also I'm loving that it has a different taste than the other high tier soy sauce available on our continent - Kikkoman! So a general rule of thumb: Use this soy sauce for marinades and stir fries! Keep Kikkoman more bitter taste for Sushi!

  • 501 Soy Sauce is filtered through a 5-stage process (very clean finish)

        About the Brand

        Sempio has been making soy sauce since 1946.

        It's Korea's oldest and most-renowned soy sauce brand.

          What is Total Nitrogen Value?

          Total Nitrogen (TN) indicates how much soybean protein is found in the soy sauce. As soybeans ferment, they release protein in the form of nitrogen. The longer the beans ferment, the more nitrogen they produce. A higher TN number indicates higher quality. The grading scale is as follows:

          1%  is average | 1.3% is premium | 1.5 - 1.8% is super-premium
          Sempio's 501 Soy Sauce is 1.5% >> Super Premium 

          How is this marketed in Korea?

          "If you want to cook well, it starts with a high quality Soy Sauce.
          That's why I only use Sempio's 501. Why? It's Korea #1 Soy Sauce."
