This Popular Soy Sauce Brand Is Getting Banned in the UAE

Kikkoman Soy Sauce is like the Beyoncé of all soy sauces. You can find this small bottle literally anywhere, from supermarkets to Asian restaurants to the kitchen cupboard. It has been dominating the soy sauce game ever since it has been introduced to the region, but unfortunately we will be saying goodbye to Kikkoman in the UAE.

The decision came after The Ministry of Climate Change and Environment reported that the Kikkoman Soy Sauce contains a percentage of alcohol that is higher than what is permissible in the UAE. *crying*

 

Laboratory tests have indeed confirmed the high percentage of alcohol. This resulted in the Food Safety Department of Dubai Municipality to ban the imported product from Japan for good.

WE SAID THIS: We hope they find a good replacement to the soy sauce soon.
