Somen Tsuyu Concentrated Soup Base 500ml


Tsuyu is the classic dipping sauce and soup base for Japanese noodles. Morita's somen tsuyu is a rich and rounded blend of umami-rich dried bonito fish and kelp seaweed, soy sauce, fermented rice alcohol and sugar. Serve the tsuyu soup base cold as a dipping sauce or dilute with water and serve hot or cold as a noodle soup, perfect with fine somen noodles.

When using the somen tsuyu as a dipping sauce, once all the noodles are finished, pour a little of the hot noodle cooking water into the concentrated sauce to dilute, and enjoy as a hot soup. The starch in the cooking water should thicken the broth slightly.

Producer Morita has brewed and fermented Japanese products to traditional recipes for over 350 years. Fermented foods (soy, miso, sake) are the building blocks of Japanese cuisine and getting just the right balance of umami in their sauces, stocks and dressings is a challenge they are now experts at.

Ingredients: Soy sauce (water, soybeans, wheat, salt), flavour seasoning (dried bonito (fish), dried bonito extract (mackerel (fish), pork gelatin), dried round herring (fish), kelp extract, dried frigate mackerel (fish), high fructose corn syrup, sugar, fermented rice seasoning (glucose syrup, rice, malted rice, salt, ethyl alcohol), salt, spirit vinegar, ethyl alcohol, flavour enhancers: E621, E631. Allergens: fish, soy, wheat.
