The Only Soy Sauce that's Fresh and Alive!
Natural food connoisseurs will tell you, "It doesn't get better than this!" The ultimate traditional Japanese soy sauce, nourishing and alive with an incomparably rich, "fresh-from-the-keg" flavor comes from the fact that it's unpasteurized; it retains the healthful live enzymes and beneficial organisms such as lactobacillus. This stable culture is the result of a unique double-brew process. And because of this unique process, Nama Shoyu can be made with less salt than common soy sauce-17% less! It's the only soy sauce that's naturally lower in salt. Try some with your next meal. We're sure you'll agree that it's the most savory natural seasoning you'll ever use.
The spring water used to make Ohsawa® Organic Nama® Shoyu comes from a small Japanese mountain village called Kamiizumi ("God Spring"). Dr. Masaru Emoto, Director of the Hado Institute in Tokyo and author of Hidden Messages in Water, has water crystal photographs from this spring that reflect its beneficial effects. Optimal well-being literally comes from good vibrations. When we take in good vibrations, they correct distorted frequencies within our cells, assisting our health and healing. Kamiizumisui water has been filtered through Chichibu paleozoic granite strata slowly for 1,400 years. It is scientifically proven to be "rare water, full of life-energizing force," with twice the surfactant potency and 18% more enzyme activity than ordinary water. Its pH is very close to that of the human body.
Enjoy Ohsawa® Organic Nama® Shoyu's full-bodied flavor and exquisitely delicate bouquet, whether you're using it at the table or in cooking.
The highly revered Yamaki Company, brewer of Ohsawa Organic Nama Shoyu, also makes soy sauce for the Royal Family in Japan. Their traditional shoyu business arises from a synergy created by three elements: living water from a mountain spring, organic agricultural methods (which take full advantage of living soil), and Japan's 1,200-year history of fermented food production, an essential part of Japanese culture. Yamaki's philosophy of "Harmony between People and Nature" is not only one of the fundamental principles of Macrobiotics but also the backbone of ancient Japanese culture. This sustainable way of thinking is the essential solution to the environmental problem of climate change.
Unlike common soy sauce that is artificially "aged" for months, Ohsawa Organic Nama Shoyu uses traditional fermentation methods and a unique "double brew" process. Natural aging in hand-made cedarwood kegs through at least two summer seasons creates a sauce that is unsurpassed in flavor and quality. Ohsawa Organic Nama Shoyu - rich in mouthwatering "umami" ("delicious") flavor - sets a new standard of excellence for soy sauce.
