The major differences between LOHAS SHOYU and Ordinary soy sauce can be found in their ingredients and brewing methods. In terms of ingredients, LOHAS SHOYU uses selected soybean, which creates the aroma of soy sauce and this indispensable aroma can stimulate appetite. Whereas Ordinary soy sauce utilizes wheat flour and bran which will significantly weaken the aroma of soy sauce.
As for brewing method, LOHAS SHOYU utilizes microorganism such as lactic acid bacteria and enzymes during the 180days fermentation process. These are the elements that produces the full-bodied flavour and rich aroma unique to LOHAS SHOYU. Since Ordinary soy sauce undergoes very little fermentation, MSG and other additives are used in order to cover its weak aroma and flavour.
