tamari/soya sauce whats the diff???
I purchased naturally occurring soya sauce with whole soya beans...ingredients were almost same as tamari...what is the difference and can I use the soya to replace recipes requiring tamari?
tamari is A kind of Japanese soy sause. It is thicker, and has a richer flavour. You can use soya sauce in place of tamari. It just might not be the 'authentic' recipie. They have basicly the same taste
most of the tamari I buy has wheat in it, unless i specifically look for wheat free. tamari just has a richer flavor - you can sub. soy sauce or Braggs Aminos
Tamari is sometimes marketed as "light" soysauce...ref colour and not quite as thick. Regular soysauce has a stronger flavour; you might look for Thai soysauce such as Silver Swan.
Tamari has a ton more protein than soy sauce as well ... so it has a higher heat threshold and it's actually not as salty ... both are salty to me but that's the word on the Tarmari street. :)
Tamari is a product of making miso. The fermented bean paste sinks to the bottom of the barrel, and the liquid tamari floats to the top to be ladeled off.
Soy sauce is brewed, I think.
this seems lik it should clear up the debate
