    Do you have a breakdown of the sodium content? Soy sauce is very high and I rarely use it for that reason

    • Janisa Janisa on Dec 08, 2020

      Hi Margaret, sorry I don't have the break down. However, soy sauce is generally lesser sodium than table salt. If you are looking for a healthier version, perhaps you can get the sodium reduced soy sauce or simply half the amount. Hope this help :)
