Tamari in our A-Z - Cooking Index
Tamari is a variety of Japanese soy sauce that has a dark brown color. It is slightly thicker than common, store-bought soy sauce and has a stronger flavor.
Tamari is typically used to season foods while they are cooked like soups, stews and tamari almonds. Another variety of Japanese soy sauce called shoyu is more commonly used on the table for adding seasoning to foods.
It contains little or no wheat; wheat-free tamari is popular among people eating a wheat free diet
