Korea's #1 Best-Selling Soy Sauce
[Sempio] Yangjo Soy Sauce 501
Sempio's 501 Soy Sauce is Korea's #1 Best-Selling Soy Sauce.
Sempio has mastered the art of soy sauce. They have spent 70+ years brewing Soy Sauce in the traditional way. This 501 Soy Sauce is their flagship product. It's a super-premium grade soy sauce, with a Total Nitrogen value of 1.5 (details below). A high TN value indicates a high amount of soybean protein, which translates to deep, rich flavor. Sempio's 501 Soy Sauce has become the go-to soy sauce for Korea.
But do I need a premium soy sauce? Well, Soy Sauce is the most-frequently used ingredient in Korean cooking. If you plan to cook Korean food regularly, then yes, invest into a high-quality 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!
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!
- Sempio's 501 Soy Sauce is naturally-brewed (no chemical processing)
- 501 Soy Sauce is filtered through a 5-stage process (very clean finish)
- Available in 500ml and 930ml bottles

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

A: No it doesn't. Most homecooks store it in their pantry (or a cool-dry area). But if you do store it in the refrigerator, it will last longer.
A: Many homecooks like to use 501 Soy Sauce for cooking, sautéing, or stir-frying. And the more expensive 701 Soy Sauce for cold or raw dishes like sushi, sashimi, salad dressing, etc. However, both can be used interchangeably.
