Best Answer

Fermented soybeans, wheat, water, and salt are the main ingredients in soy sauce. The best sauces are then "brewed," through an aging and fermenting process that lasts months before reaching store shelves. Some commercial products are produced in a matter of days through the use of chemicals. These are less expensive, but the taste may also reflect added ingredients.
