Golden Mountain seasoning sauce is often the ‘secret ingredient’ of many Thai recipes. Although not well known in the Western world, is has been used in Thailand for over a century for many recipes, especially stir-fry dishes.
Ingredients: Like soy sauce, golden mountain sauce is composed mainly of fermented soy beans and salt. It tastes quite different from soy sauce, however: slightly saltier, plus there is a hint of sweetness (it does contain sugar). There is no MSG in this sauce, but the Thais do add what they call 'flavour enhancer' in small amounts (similar to MSG, but without the negative effects), and a preservative.
