WHY IS TAIWANESE SOY SAUCE SPECIAL?
Traditional Taiwanese soy sauce is made only with native Taiwanese black soybeans, salt, water, and sugar. Black soybeans differ from the more widely used yellow soybean. They have a mellower, sweeter, and more nostalgically Taiwanese flavor. This type of soy sauce is very similar to traditional Chinese soy sauces, where no wheat is used. Taiwanese black bean soy sauces are gluten-free.
