Healthy eating with Kikkoman


Healthy hints & tips

Invest in a wok or non-stick frying pan – you won’ t need to add much oil in dishes and always measure oil when cooking rather than pouring straight from the bottle.

Kikkoman Soy Sauces are packed with flavour – whether the original naturally brewed or the Less Salt variety – so a small amount in dishes is great for adding flavour without the fat. For best results measure the amount of soy sauce you add to dishes with a teaspoon or tablespoon, which will also control; the amount of salt in the dish

Stir frying is a great way to boost your vegetable intake. Half a large onion and pepper and one carrot provides three of your 5-a-day!

Gluten-free diet

Most people can’t imagine having to go without a freshly baked bread roll at breakfast time or a delicious piece of cake in the afternoon. However, those of us who don’t tolerate gluten (a sticky protein that is found in various kinds of cereals) have to go without them every day. Just one mouthful can cause physical symptoms such as stomach cramps.


However, gluten-free foods can also be enjoyable. We’ve detailed all the things you have to watch out for and provided some useful tips on living with gluten intolerance.

Gluten-free shopping

Kikkoman has developed a soy sauce for people who are gluten intolerant. New naturally brewed Tamari gluten-free soy sauce seasons your foods and adds variety to a controlled diet. It also provides gluten-free diet followers with a far wider variety of flavours. The naturally brewed gluten-free sauce is made out of soy beans, water, salt and alcohol – but it doesn’t contain any wheat, supplementary flavour enhancers or colour additives. Despite the different formula, it is just as versatile as the original. You can use it to season and enhance the flavour of practically all foods. The 250 ml bottle is available from Sainsbury’s supermarkets.

Less salt in meals

Seasoning your life is our international slogan. It is founded on the principle that Kikkoman unites a 300 year-old Japanese soy sauce making tradition with a modern, healthy lifestyle. Our brand promise is “Enjoy the good things in life!” and Kikkoman soy sauce is definitely one of those good things. As the perfect universal seasoning, it augments the cuisine of many different countries. Naturally brewed soy sauce provides consumers with a very special flavour experience as a result of its indescribable, full-bodied flavour (umami).

Take care of your health

The World Health Organization (WHO) also recommends using less salt in foods. Five grams or a level teaspoon per day is the maximum recommended intake. Too much salt increases the risk of high blood pressure and cardio-vascular diseases. Reducing the salt content of the food you eat by 30 percent makes an important contribution to health.
