    THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF SOYA SAUCE : DARK AND LIGHT BOTH ARE MADE IN THE SAME MANNER BUT DARK SOYA SAUCE IS FERMENTED FOR A LONGER TIME. DARK SOYA SAUCE IS MORE FULL BODIED AND THICKER . IT RELEASES ITS FLAVOUR DURING COOKING. THEREFORE IS USED FOR COOKING , GIVING A DARK COLOUR TO THE FOOD. THE LIGHT SOYA SAUCE IS LIGHT COLOUR, CLEAR BROWN, THINNER AND IMPARTS A DELICATE AROMA TO THE FOOD. USED FOR LIGHT SEASONING, DIPPING SAUCES AND IS ALSO USED IN FILLINGS.
