The Traditional Firewood Soy Sauce is an all-purpose soy sauce prepared in the traditions of China and Japan, which are made with a blend of soybeans and wheat (whereas traditional Taiwanese soy sauces contain soybeans only). This soy sauce also contains mirin and licorice for a warm and anise-like flavor, a perfect complement to Chinese 5 spice. Like other Yu Ding Xing soy sauces, this is hand prepared, naturally fermented in vats for 6 months, and heated over a wood fire at the end of the fermentation process.
The Traditional Firewood Range is Yu Ding Xing's mid-grade range of soy sauces and pastes and does contain added flavoring, unlike their other offerings. These additives are derived naturally from the fermentation of tapioca starch, and interact with the natural glutamates present in the soy sauce to create a flavor that is distinctly Taiwan.
