I saw the thread earlier about Sriracha. I am not sure whether the company AndeB mentioned was different than the one I'm using. I recently [2-3 weeks ago] picked up a bottle at Hong Kong Supermarket. It did have Kosher Certification, and was rather inexpensive [roughly $3 for a 28 oz. bottle]

I included the manufacturer's web site below.

Certification is "Shield Star K".

  1. The brand at Kosherfest was different.

    I've seen the brand you refer to. It's been around for awhile -- Kalustyan and Dean & Deluca stock it. Just be advised, there are multiple opinions about the reliability of the hechsher.

    1. re: AndeB

      Do you remember the name of the company whose products you saw at Kosherfest?
      If not, then perhaps the certifying authority?

      I would love to find kosher mushroom soy sauce and Chinese black vinegar!
      Thanks, p.j.

      1. re: p.j.

        I posted the contact information on the Kosherfest thread.

        1. re: p.j.

          PJ, I just e-mailed Lee Kum Kee, and they gave me a list of kosher products, including mushroom soy sauce.
          I am with you on your quest for good kosher asian ingredients! Feel free to e-mail me any tips you get. I was in Israel last month, and had "Healthy Boy" sweet chili sauce at a charedi family's household. it was good, and the heksher was in hebrew, i was too busy slurping it up to translate. i have yet to find that brand of sweet chili sauce in Chicago, where i live. i doubt it would be hekshered here, anyway.

          Here's the list:

      2. Thanks! I am not sure this is the same company, because Huy Fong seems to make only chili sauces, and not soy sauce.

        The sriracha sauce is great.

        1. The original comment has been removed
          1. The Huy Fong Sriacha is, I believe, the original. The sauce that started it all. The rooster bottle, yes?

            I only have the garlic chili sauce (which does not have a mark) but per this pic on amazon, the sriracha is parve -


            All I can say is that I have had their products, and they are awesome. Made in California.

            1. FYI "and was rather inexpensive [roughly $3 for a 28 oz. bottle]"

              That's pretty much the norm price for it in LA. Which might explain why they can't keep up with the demand!
