Soy Sauce is made using four simple ingredients, soy beans, rice, water, and salt. Similar to making cheese, a mould is used to consume the soy beans. This mould is called "aspergillus sojae", and is added to the soy beans and rice to make a mash called "koji". Once this mould has consumed the soy beans, and this process takes weeks, it's added to the saltwater mixture and left to ferment. The use of this process is estimated to be more than 2000 years old.
