Lee Kum Kee Premium Dark Soy Sauce

Our Premium Dark Soy Sauce helps to deliver the desired deep colour, full-bodied texture, and lustre to stews, casseroles, noodles and other dishes. It is naturally brewed with non-GM soybeans, with no added MSG or preservatives. Dark Soy Sauce has a hint of sweetness and more subtle in soy bean taste, as its main purpose is for its colour instead of taste. Add progressively whilst cooking until it reaches your desired deepness of colour.
