    The alcohol levels can vary from 1% to 5% in depending on the process and ingredients. The fermentation by yeast of the starches in wheat soybeans or corn results in producing alcohol.

    Alcohol content of Kikkoman sauce is about 2% by volume

    Alcohol content of Yamasa sauce is about 2.5% by volume

    Both soy sauces are pasteurized to stop fermentation

    The key here is "Naturally Brewed" soy sauces will contain alcohol due to the fermentation process.

    According to the Kikkoman website... "Kikkoman Soy Sauces contain greater than 2% alcohol by volume."

    Also, if you look at the Yamasa website.... \

    Note: Additional Alcohol is added to their low sodium soy sauce...

    " Naturally Brewed YAMASA Less Salt Soy Sauce

    INGREDIENTS:

    Water, Wheat, Soybeans, Salt, Alcohol (To Retain Freshness), Vinegar, and Lactic Acid "

    Yogesh is right, I have never seen the winos drinking soya sauce in my Asian neighbourhood, they once did with the cooking wine, but stopped when they upped the salt content to 5%, as he said the fermentation process is used to breakdown the proteins and starches in the soya beans and wheat used, the culture turn the into a base alcohol, but it is released in processing and final bottling, you cannot get drunk, nor is in Haram for Muslims to us, I worked in Asia, and the Malay and indonesia soya sauces are sweeter and thicker, they make them for the Muslim population n both country's
