Is soy sauce healthy? What do you use?

Recommended Posts

I heard that koikuchi shoyu (dark soy sauce) is the most antioxidant heavy - see https://www.nutraingredients.com/Article/2006/06/06/Antioxidant-rich-soy-sauce-could-protect-against-CVD

maybe https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B085TG28K5/ref=ask_ql_qh_dp_hza counts? it's been aged for over a year



this isn't the typical soy sauce sold in stores

fermented soy products have been associated with longevity

It is produced in foods treated at high temperatures with hydrochloric acid to speed up protein hydrolysis. As a byproduct of this process, chloride can react with the glycerol backbone of lipids to produce 3-MCPD. 3-MCPD can also occur in foods that have been in contact with materials containing epichlorohydrin-based wet-strength resins which are used in the production of some tea bags and sausage casings.[3]

In 2009, 3-MCPD was found in some East Asian and Southeast Asian sauces such as oyster sauce, Hoisin sauce, and soy sauce.[4] Using hydrochloric acid is far faster than traditional slow fermentation. A 2013 European Food Safety Authority report indicated margarine, vegetable oils (excluding walnut oil), preserved meats, bread, and fine bakery wares as major sources in Europe.[5]
