Pearl River Bridge Superior Sheng Chou Light Soy Sauce

Just as the name implies - this soy sauce is superior! Due to its light, rich, and salty flavor, sheng chou (light soy sauce) is used for general cooking, like stir-frying. Fun fact: you should actually always be using light soy sauce unless the recipe specifically calls for dark soy sauce, so this is a true kitchen staple!

Common Allergens: Wheat, Soy.

What is The Difference between Light and Dark Chinese Soy Sauce?

Dark Chinese soy sauce is different than dark Japanese soy sauce. It has a sweeter flavor due to the addition of sugar or molasses. This soy sauce is usually only used for cooked recipes, not dips. For example, you can use dark soy sauce for red braised pork belly. It adds a more decadent texture to dishes as it's slightly viscous.


Light soy sauce is more expensive in China yet is the most common variety you’ll see noted in recipes. If you’re reading a Chinese recipe and it only notes soy sauce, assume it’s talking about light soy sauce. It’s slightly saltier than dark soy sauce and not as sweet. It is great paired with seafood or as a dumpling sauce.
