Soy sauce is a fantastic addition to nearly any dish, whether you’re whipping up an easy stir-fry for dinner or just need something to add a bit of umami flavor to whatever you’re cooking. San-J Tamari is a premium Japanese soy sauce made with 100% soy and no wheat. No matter which of our Tamari products you choose, it was brewed with the same small-batch fermentation methods passed down through the generations. 

What sort of Tamari products might you find on the shelf at your local grocery store, and what can you do with these delectable products?

Our Products

What can you find in the soy sauce section of your favorite grocery store? We’ll start with the classic San-J Tamari Soy Sauce, which contains more soy protein to deliver a richer and more complex flavor with up to 30% more umami than typical offerings. There are also certified organic versions that offer all the umami flavor you’d expect. 

There are even a few options for those seeking reduced-sodium soy sauce. Tamari 28% Less Sodium contains reduced salt while still offering the rich delicious flavor.

Tamari Lite has 50% less sodium than regular Tamari and it has a richer and smoother flavor than typical less sodium soy sauces.

San-J Tamari is a gluten-free soy sauce. It’s also vegan, kosher, fodmap friendly and non-GMO project verified. 

Ways to Use San-J Tamari

San-J Tamari is the perfect addition to nearly any dish. Unlike other soy sauce brands, San-J Tamari products don’t flash off under high cooking temperatures. If you’re unfamiliar with soy sauce in the kitchen, how can you use San-J Tamari?

Add It to a Dipping Sauce

Whether you’re enjoying some tempura shrimp or just snacking on your favorite fried food, soy sauce is the perfect addition to any dipping sauce. You can whip up a quick savory version with San-J Tamari soy sauce, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, ginger and garlic that will pair beautifully with just about anything.

Try It In a Stir-Fry

What is stir-fry without soy sauce? Your sauce should be equal parts soy and water or stock, with other ingredients added to taste for flavor and consistency. Experiment with different combinations to see what works best for you.

Use as a Marinade

Pour some San-J Tamari on your favorite cut of meat to add some incredible umami flavor to just about any dish. We love it with chicken, but it is an amazing addition to anything you’re already planning to marinate.

Perk up Your Favorite Sauces

Add a splash or two of soy to your favorite sauce for a quick burst of flavor without changing the consistency or altering the overall taste.

Whisk It Into Salad Dressing

If you’re a fan of homemade salad dressings, soy sauce can create an umami-rich and delicious version that will go well on nearly any salad. 

Put It in Soup

Even if you think soy sauce doesn’t belong in soup, you might be surprised how much more flavor a splash or two can add. Soy sauce is a common ingredient found in most Asian soup recipes. 

Mix It Into Casseroles

Things like tuna noodle casserole, while filling, tend to be a little flavorless. Add a couple of splashes of soy sauce to give this weeknight staple the perfect pick-me-up.

Experiment With It In Desserts

Yes, you can even use soy sauce in deserts. Our favorite is probably this stunning soy sauce caramel, but you can add it to cakes, frostings and all sorts of other sweet treats.
