Buy or DIY? Teriyaki Sauce

The great thing about this Japanese-inspired sauce is that it has virtually no fat or saturated fat (depending on which brand or shop you buy it from, of course!). It’s bursting with flavour and is widely used as a marinade for meat - perfect for adding an oriental touch to your barbecue.

Most teriyaki sauces are a blend of soy sauce, honey or mirin, ginger and a range of other spices. However, we may think this is a guilt-free sauce, but this never seems to be the case when buying supermarket jars or bottles of the stuff. There are lots of hidden ingredients, chemicals and preservatives that catch us out.

Store-Bought

The spices used in teriyaki sauce are great for our bodies and individually they have many health benefits. However, we shouldn’t be consuming the preservatives and acids found in store-bought bottles - many of them we can’t even pronounce!

Another reason to be wary of teriyaki sauce is the high level of sodium found in most store-bought bottles. Eating too much sodium can cause heart disease, increased blood pressure and kidney problems.

High sugar content is another problem. In a 100ml bottle, you can expect to find around 50 grams of sugar, which is the recommended daily amount (RDA) of sugar for women.

 

Homemade

Making this sauce at home couldn’t be easier: you won’t need many ingredients, and you can limit the amount of unhealthy ingredients (like sugar) that go into it.

All you need is a cup of cold water, a few tablespoons of brown sugar, a small amount of soy sauce, honey, garlic, ginger and some cornstarch for thickness. Add the ingredients to a saucepan on a medium heat until the sauce has thickened.



So, start making your own Teriyaki sauce today, and limit the amount of salt, sugar and preservatives that you put into it. Teriyaki can be healthy!
