We place great importance on the quality and origin of our raw ingredients – and our natural production processes. In fact, it's the first-class ingredients that give all Kikkoman Soy Sauces their characteristically versatile flavour. We don't use any artificial additives in our sauces and only use soybeans that are non-GMO. This gives you the assurance that every Kikkoman Soy Sauce is a completely natural condiment: GMO-free, safe and delicious.
GMO-free or not? The label tells you…
The acronym ‘GMO’ stands for “genetically modified organisms”. Kikkoman only uses soybeans that are ‘GMO-free’. This is a clear mark of quality.
All food, ingredients and additives produced directly from GM crops must be labelled within the EU. You’ll know food contains GMOs if the list of ingredients or the label include the phrases ‘genetically modified’ or ‘made from genetically modified...’. This doesn’t apply to animal products such as meat, milk and eggs, though. The good news: Our soy sauces are guaranteed GMO-free.
