This is a great substitute for soy sauce! Now, let me tell you that this is kind of like soy sauce: it tastes like it, minus the salt. BUT, it was great nonetheless. I loved it, my hubby loved it, and while I still love my soy sauce because of the salt, I love this as well. I used this in my fried rice recipe and it worked out very well! I doubled (maybe even tripled) the amount of pepper, garlic powder and onion powder Thank you so much for posting this here on Zaar! I will be making this again!

This has worked pretty well for me. Because of allergies I needed a basic substitute and was very happy to find this. Make sure to let it reduce all the way down to 1/2 cup for best results.

there is no substitution for the real thing, but this came pretty close, and thank goodness, because I was out of soy sauce, and didn't feel like running to the store.
