Shinangchon Sengmyongmul Soy Sauce

100% Naturally Brewed, Artisanal

[Shinangchon] Sengmyongmul Soy Sauce


Shinangchon Sengmyongmul Soy Sauce is a Super-Premium Soy Sauce.

It's made by an artisanal company that's spent the last half-century perfecting the art of soy sauce. This is their signature product, and it tastes incredible - salty, umami, earthy and deep. To produce this deep flavor, the company goes the extra mile. They extract natural bedrock water from 200m underground! Then mash high-quality soybeans - with the bedrock water - and store them in traditional Korean Onggi pots. The large pots are moved to an underground facility (check video below), so they can ferment in ideal, controlled climate for six months.  

During the entire process, there is no chemical additive or preservatives added - 100% naturally brewed. 
Note: The Total Nitrogen value of this Soy Sauce is 1.5 - Super Premium quality!

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 they ferment, the more nitrogen they produce. A higher TN number indicates higher quality. The grading scale is shown below.

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