Kikkoman: Cooking Sake
This cooking sake is used in a variety of Japanese dishes. It is from the same family as Mirin, but is less sweet. The alcohol makes it easier for the ingredients to absorb flavours, it also prevents boiling foods from disintegrating and gets rid of unpleasant odours from fish and meats. It is usually used in marinades and sauces, and has a lower alcoholic content than drinking sake (15 – 19%). With added salt. Now new packaging in plastic bottle.
