Description

In Japan, two fermented soya sauces, Shoyu and Tamari, have been favourite seasonings for several centuries. Today, these delicious, ebony-coloured sauces are appreciated all over the world. The difference between Shoyu and Tamari lies in their composition. Shoyu is made of soya and wheat whereas Tamari is a pure soya sauce. Shoyu contains several minerals, proteins and indispensable vitamins. During the long fermentation process, natural enzymes transform the starch, the proteins and the lipids contained in raw soya and wheat into nutrients that are easily absorbed, as they are predigested : amino acids, poly-unsaturated fatty acids, slow carbohydrates. During the fermentation process, a lactic acid is developed that has a beneficial effect on the intestinal flora and on the efficient absorption of nutrients. Sea salt supplies minerals and trace elements. By using the Lima sauces instead of salt, you reduce the amount of salt in your dishes while enhancing their natural taste.

Use

Shoyu and Tamari are taste enhancers, healthy and liquid versions of stock cubes. They are suitable for western as well as oriental dishes. Do not simply use them to salt, but also to intensify the natural taste of ingredients during cooking and at the table. The taste of Shoyu is characterised by a slight touch of alcohol resulting from the fermentation of wheat. That is why it is not very suitable for prolonged heating and should be added at the end of the preparation process, so that it does not lose its flavour. Shoyu is perfect for pickles, in the wok, with rice, with noodles, with sushi, sashimi or steamed vegetables. It is delicious in combination with mirin (rice wine), wasabik ginger or grated daikon.

Product FAQ

What is the difference between Tamari and Shoyu?

Both tamari and shoyu are sauces made of naturally fermented soy that were produced according to a traditional Japanese method. You can use both of these flavour enhancers to naturally season dishes as well as enhance the natural flavours of the ingredients. The difference between the two can be explained by their composition.

**Tamari (gluten-free)**
• Consists of pure fermented soy.
• You can also use it while cooking or as a condiment at the table.
• Perfect for seasoning stews, dressings, marinades, stir-fries, soup, pasta, and stock.
• Combines well with rice vinegar, garlic, ginger and mustard.
• Lima’s Tamari is gluten-free.

**Shoyu (not gluten-free)**
• Contains fermented soy and wheat.
• Shoyu owes its characteristic flavour to the aromatic components that are formed during the fermentation process.
• Shoyu cannot withstand prolonged heating, which is why you should only add it at the end of the cooking process, so it retains its flavour.
• Perfect for seasoning stir-fries, pickles, rice, noodles, sushi, sashimi or steamed vegetables.
• Combines well with mirin (rice wine), wasabi, ginger or grated daikon radish.

Which measures does Lima have in place for all its imports from Japan?

Various Lima products are sourced from suppliers in the south of Japan. Most of these suppliers are small, traditional businesses, with whom we have had quite close ties for several years already. Many of them depend on the partnership with Lima for the survival of their business. That is why we have decided to continue the distribution of their products for the most part. We have systematic checks for radioactivity in place to continue to guarantee impeccable products to our customers.

• We have halted some product imports (see map).
• Products originating from high-risk areas in Japan are inspected upon arrival in the Port of Antwerp by the Federal Agency for the Safety of the Food Chain (FASFC).
• The Lima Expert lab also takes samples of some products. These are then analysed by a specialised lab at Ghent University.
• We measure a product’s radioactivity, which is expressed in becquerel/kg (Bq/kg) and detect caesium, iodine and potassium by measuring luminescence.
• To date, we have not found increased radioactivity in a single product imported from Japan. The maximum radioactivity we measured to date in our products is smaller than the lowest quantifiable detection limit (5-20Bq/kg).
• Lima’s commitment to guarantee safe and healthy products remains the same.
