Basically way too salty and not much taste otherwise. I had to add half the bottle to taste it and then found my meal too salty. I only ate it to save wasting food. Plain miso paste added to stir-frys and soups is much better.
Not enough bang for the buck
Didn't add as much flavour as I'd hoped; added it to a cauliflower soup and it did very little - put in half a bottle into 2 bowls of soup before I could even taste it. Way cheaper just to buy miso instead.
Best way to add umami burst of flavour, amazing!
Excellent for adding to stir fry's for added depth of umami flavour. Very good for dishes featuring mushroom, tofu, soba noodles. As it contains miso (a live cultured product) I add it at the very end of cooking (with the heat off) so as not to kill the miso! For two people, 1 tablespoon is enough, stirred through the stir fry at the end of cooking. I'm assuming a wok/frying pan full of veggies for 2 people! I still use other seasonings in the stir fry but adding this stuff at the end just makes the whole dish "pop" with umami flavour. I am not a vegetarian but vegans/vegetarians would like this a lot, I think. It was missing for a while, thought it had been discontinued and I was heartbroken. Very happy it's back and just the shape of the container has changed! Thank you Tesco for stocking an amazing foodie product! JJ in west Wales
Full of unnecessary sugar
I am so sick of everything having the dreaded glucose fructose syrup added - this also has maltodextrin. No wonder obesity and diabetes is rife. Look online for far better sugar-free versions which have far more taste than this.
