I have searched high and low for a really good black bean sauce and at last I have found it. This does not contain MSG, and is as good as it gets. Fish in black bean sauce is my favourite dish so I am so happy to have found this product. It is also very good value. It suggests you add a tsp of sugar to the sauce but I prefer to add honey or maple syrup if I want added sweetness. It is very good that they haven't loaded it with tons of sugar (there is a small amount in it) so you can make your own choice. Highly recommended.
