Little Soya’s Quirky, Convenient Fish Packets Featured in The Atlantic!

404121_510695055608436_1931764921_n

Today, The Atlantic ran a story titled “The Mysterious, Murky Story Behind Soy Sauce Packets.” As the headline implies, the story provides an in-depth look at the popularity of soy sauce as a condiment and analyzes exactly how the popular to-go packets have evolved over the years. Anyone that has seen Little Soya’s single-serve, NASA-approved, fish-shaped packets knows you can’t tell the story of soy sauce packets without talking about us.

We are incredibly honored that Tanya Basu, editorial fellow with The Atlantic, reached out to us and learned all about the unique Little Soya packaging and our out-of-this-world flavor.

“But has the American public gotten sick of soy sauce packets? Sometimes they squirt their contents in unintended directions, and they’re fairly wasteful, often dispensing too much sauce, or not enough. But in the more than 50 years that they’ve been around, little has been done to change their design,” Basu writes.

“Can soy-sauce packets be made better too? Gary Murphy thinks so. Murphy, the founder and CEO of Little Soya, is an unlikely soy-sauce pioneer with a loud laugh,” she continues.

Basu goes on to tell the story of how Little Soya came to be and discusses with Gary how Little Soya’s rich, savory flavor and gluten-free formula has made it a popular premium soy sauce in a time when more Americans are seeking out high-end condiments to “replicate the experience of eating at a restaurant.” However, the primary focus is Little Soya’s quirky, cute, convenient packaging that Basu deems “the first meaningful improvement on the classic disposable soy-sauce packet.”

“The fish is not just a cute brand differentiator but also a means of avoiding waste. Its top screws back on to save soy sauce for later,” she notes.

We encourage you to check out the full story for a whole lot more information about soy sauce packets and Little Soya. Much thanks to Tanya and The Atlantic for the excellent coverage!

Little Soya Chicken Adobo Recipe

"Chicken adobo" by dbgg1979 on flickr

“Chicken adobo” by dbgg1979 on flickr

When your humble blogger married into a Filipino family, his eyes were opened to a world of culinary delights that would change his life forever. From pancit to lechon to sinigang, Filipino food perfectly captures the colorful history and dynamic culture of the more than 7,000 islands that make up the nation. But if you had to choose one dish that highlights what Filipino food is all about, it has to be adobo.

Adobo is a ubiquitous dish in the Philippines. While it takes its name from the Spanish, the cooking style is uniquely Filipino. Locals found that cooking meat (typically chicken or pork) in soy sauce, vinegar, salt, pepper, garlic and other spaces was not only tasty, but also a good way to preserve meat without refrigeration.

While exact chicken adobo recipes can vary by region in the Philippines, I’m going to share my favorite version with you here today, and it includes Little Soya. Remember, soy sauce is one of the key ingredients in adobo, so it really influences the overall taste of the dish. I’ve found that because Little Soya is lower sodium and has richer flavor than its counterparts, it really keeps the adobo from being overly salty and enhances the overall flavor profile to take this dish up a notch.

This recipe is simple, requires only a handful of ingredients, and doesn’t take long to prepare at all. And don’t forget to serve it over a nice bed of steamed white rice!

 

Little Soya Chicken Adobo

 

Ingredients

6 chicken drumsticks

Marinade:

½ cup Little Soya gluten-free soy sauce

¾ cup vinegar

¼ cup water

½ tsp sugar

3 bay leaves

4 cloves chopped garlic

2 tsp whole black peppercorns

 

Directions

Combine all marinade ingredients. Whisk until sugar has dissolved.

Arrange chicken in a single layer in a glass baking dish. Pour marinade over chicken. Refrigerate for about 2 hours.

Place chicken and marinade into a large pot. Bring the liquid to a boil over medium-high heat.

Reduce to simmer. Cook for about 45 minutes, turning the chicken halfway through.

Ensure thickest part of the chicken is cooked to 165 degrees Fahrenheit.

Discard bay leaves.

Serve immediately over steamed white rice.

 

 

 

 

5 Ways You Can Make Healthier Eating Decisions In 2015

It’s no surprise that the #1 New Year’s resolution is to lose weight. After all, more than 1 out of every 3 Americans is considered to be obese, and almost 75% of all men are at least considered to be overweight. So, in the season for goal setting, most people decide they want to lose weight and get healthier.

We’re here to cheer you on and give you some helpful tips for achieving healthier eating habits so you can improve your health and shed those unwanted pounds. Of course, you’ve probably heard it said that about 90% of all diets fail. That’s because most diets set a laundry list of oppressive rules that are practically impossible to stick with for an extended period of time. The real secret to losing weight and getting healthier is to make small, practical changes in your diet over time that you can stick with for a lifetime.

With that in mind, here are 5 simple ways you can start making healthier eating decisions in 2015 and beyond!

 

  1. Eat less sodium—The average American eats way too much salt. It’s hidden in just about everything we eat. The risks of consuming too much sodium are endless, including hypertension, osteoporosis, dehydration, kidney problems, hormone imbalances, and so much more. Try to cut back on salt whenever possible. One good way to do that is to use low-sodium cooking products when possible, like Little Soya low-sodium soy sauce which has a fraction of the sodium levels of standard soy sauce.
  2. Cut back on gluten—While not everyone needs to go on a gluten-free diet, the truth is there are a lot of benefits that can come with at least cutting back on how much gluten you consume. Many people report simply feeling better and having improved digestion after limiting their gluten intake. Try to become more mindful of your gluten intake, and when possible, consider using gluten-free substitutes, like Little Soya gluten-free soy sauce.
  3. Add fruits or vegetables to every meal—By adding a little produce to each meal, you can get more vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to boost your overall health. Eating at least 5 servings of produce can help reduce your risk for stroke, heart disease, and some cancers. An easy way to do this is to add a serving of fruit to breakfast every morning and a couple of servings of greens to lunch and dinner. Check out our simple recipe for winter greens sautéed with Little Soya and garlic…it’s delicious!
  4. Make water your go-to drink—Its recommended that you drink at least 8 glasses of water per day so that you don’t become chronically dehydrated. Simply put, water is essential to health and should be a staple in our diets. Instead of always reaching for a calorie-loaded drink like a coke, try to make water your go-to beverage of choice. Don’t like the taste of plain water? That’s okay. Add some flavor with a wedge of lemon or lime, or infuse it with some fruits of your choice.
  5. Be more aware—Simply put, one of the best things you can do to reach your health goals for 2015 is to be more aware of what you’re consuming. Pay attention to everything you eat and drink. Write it down if you can. And try to slow down when you eat so you can naturally eat less while feeling fuller.

 

We’re here to support you in achieving a healthier, happier lifestyle in 2015! Let’s do this!

Crystal Lee Dishes on Little Soya’s Emerging Florida Market

 

Crystal Lee, Little Soya’s Regional SVP of Global Accounts – East, recently flew down to Florida to help spread the good word about the tastiest soy sauce in the universe and to check in on some of our amazing clients across the area. Upon her return, we caught up with Crystal for a brief discussion about her trip to the Sunshine State.

 

Tell us a little bit about your trip to Florida. Were you there on official Little Soya business?

I had the opportunity to visit both Orlando and Miami. I had meetings with several big potential clients as well as with several distributors while I was there. Florida is one of our new emerging markets, so this trip was very important to our business.
Miami’s dining scene has really exploded in recent years as celebrity chefs have come and made their mark. What was your experience with the local food scene while you were there?

Miami has always had a pretty decent food scene, but there does seem to be some great new options popping up and it’s a great time to get our product out there.
I understand you made a visit to Makoto Restaurant while you were there. What can you tell us about the relationship between the highly rated Japanese restaurant and Little Soya?

It was great to stop by Makoto and to see the restaurant and meet their remarkable team. They haven’t actually started using Little Soya just yet, but they are about to now that Chef Page Pressley knows he can get Little Soya.
You also visited our Featured Chef Joe Bonavita, Jr. at SooWoo. He’s a huge Little Soya fan and he seems to be using our soy sauce in some really interesting and innovative ways. What were your impressions during your visit?

SooWoo 1 SooWoo 2

I was very excited to see what all Chef Joe does with the menu, and I was lucky enough to have a private tasting of some amazing dishes. Chef Joe is a real talent, and we’re so humbled that he loves our product!
As we all know, Little Soya is quickly gaining popularity among chefs and food lovers alike across the country. What can you tell us about Little Soya’s growth in Florida and particularly in Miami, one of the nation’s hottest dining scenes?

It’s just beginning but it’s well on its way. We expect to continue to grow the Florida market, and we look forward to what’s to come.

New York’s Mercer Kitchen Gets Big Flavor from Little Soya

Mercer Kitchen

It is our great honor to announce that Mercer Kitchen is officially a new Little Soya client!

Mercer Kitchen, the in-house restaurant at the sleek and sophisticated Mercer Hotel, is the culinary creation of world-famous Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. The internationally renowned French chef is simply one of the best in the world, and he has opened a number of three and four star restaurants worldwide. His culinary vision has revolutionized the way we eat, and that’s why it’s such a tremendous honor for Little Soya to be a featured ingredient in several dishes at his New York eatery Mercer Kitchen.

Since opening in 1998, Mercer Kitchen has been a culinary hotspot that has attracted tourists, celebrities, and local foodies alike. The beautiful restaurant is located in the basement of a historic 1800s building, and its exposed brick walls, candlelit sconces, and communal table gives it a sexy, timeless, iconic look.

Mercer Kitchen features an American Provencal menu where fresh, seasonal ingredients are showcased in a simple yet elegant style where every flavor shines through and delights the palate. In a restaurant where just a few simple ingredients can come together to create compelling, mesmerizing flavors, it only makes sense that Little Soya, the best tasting soy sauce in the universe, would be a favorite ingredient of the chefs.

Chef Chris Beischer told us simply, “Little Soya makes my food taste better.”

Currently, Little Soya is a featured ingredient in four delightful dishes, including:

Crispy Rice Sushi, Sashimi Salmon, Chipotle Mayo and Ponzu
