Soy sauce is a key ingredient in the Japanese kitchen, but generally a nightmare for anyone with a wheat or soy allergy. After elaborate testing, with ingredients like rice, sesame seeds and azuki beans, “sora mame” or “broad beans” were found to not only resemble the taste of general soy sauce, but to also be the most delicious one. Containing just sora mame and salt, the sauce allows a very wide range of people to enjoy a soy sauce flavor to their Japanese dishes!
