Since 1939, the Amano family name has stood for quality in naturally aged whole bean soy sauce and miso (soybean and rice paste). Drawing on three generations of Japanese brewing and miso tradition, Amano products are hand crafted and carefully aged using select organic ingredients. We have our supplier’s assurances that these materials are GMO free. Our products are Kosher certified and Organic certified. An artisan production, this third-generation Japanese family (a grandson using his grandfather’s recipe) locally produces high-end soy sauce in Richmond, BC. Only small batches are made, like a boutique wine. He follows traditional brewing methods, using big drums in a heated room for a week that mysteriously changes the taste. It’s good old family tradition. A special, very expensive, batch from Japan is brought in under their label that is wheat-free. Interested in a few saucy facts? Good soy sauce, when swished around in a white dish, should be a reddish colour and should not smell salty. And Tamari soy sauce is the first pressing of soy sauce — much like extra virgin oil.
