Tsuyu is an all-purpose sauce in Japanese cooking. It is usually used as a dipping sauce for soba noodles or tempura, as a soup base for somen or udon noodles, or is poured over tofu and vegetables. These Tsuyu from Yamaki have great bonito broth flavor and rich umami.
Shiro-dashi is a soup base made from bonito dashi and white soy sauce, mirin, sugar. The advantage of using shiro-dashi is that it doesn’t add any color to the food. It won’t change the color of the food when it’s cooking, so it’s suitable for making lightly colored, delicate dishes.
