I have a jug of This Soy Vay Teriyaki that after making some sauce for a stir-fry, I left it out overnight in the kitchen. Found it first thing in the morning and got it back in the fridge.

It's a Costco size jug, about half full. Must I throw it out or do you folks think it can still be used?

Thanks...

I would say oy vey, I shouldn't have left the Soy Vay out. Throw it away--why take a chance? And you've learned your lesson.

No idea what's in that stuff, so yeah - I'd probably toss it.

On the other hand - I make teriyaki sauce from scratch all the time and the raw ingredients are at room temp (soy sauce, saki, mirin, sugar).

I offer a differing opinion.
Put it back in th efridge and carry on.

I also believe that about 80% of condiments are nice to have refrigerated, and will keep longer
but are not Necessary to be refrigerated.

Honestly- if you had taken it out in the morning for some reason, and then realized at dinner that it had been out all day- would you have given it a second thought?
or just put it back in the fridge?

Soy sauce can be left out for days and be OK -
what else is in SoyVay besides seasoning, sesame oil & sesame seeds?
So it is kind of like salad dressing? right
I don't refrigerate our (homemade) salad dressing and thatis fine for days - even in th esummer...

SoyVay isn't cheap- I say it is probably fine, keep it.


peace & room temperature

It might be a good idea to post (and read) what's on the label.

I concur with tconi, with the following caveat.

If you have always poured the product out into another dish and never stuck a brush or spoon into it, keep it.


If you're like my kid and insist on sticking spoons and chop sticks and what not into containers, pitch it.

Interesting. I've never refrigerated my soy sauce (Kikkoman) - ever! But, that does contain preservatives. OTOH soy sauce is a fermented product and is acidic (lactic acid).

I looked on the bottle and it does say refrigerate after opening, but I never have. Keeps just fine at room temperature - even for over a year.

I too never refrigerated my soy sauce (Kikkoman too), Doc. I have a 20 Fl ounce bottle that I keep in the cabinet next to the stove. When that bottle gets low, I refill it from the gallon can that I keeps in the pantry. My ex-SIL, Mako, never refrigerated her soy sauce and nether did her mother in Japan.
;-)

C.J.V. - don’t remember seeing the original bottles (from Japan) saying to refrigerate after opening, me

First, Thank you to everyone for your replies. I don't have any kids in the house these days, I always pour, and got it back in the fridge as soon as I saw it that morning, so I think I'll keep it and carry on.



Thanks!
