Why do you use cooking sake?

Cooking sake is a brewed seasoning specialized for cooking, made from rice, rice koji, salt, and other ingredients. The organic acids and amino acids derived from rice are effective in adding umami and richness to dishes. Cooking sake also has the function of removing the smell of meat and fish, and has an azeotrope effect by evaporating together with alcohol, a deodorizing effect through the various actions of organic acids, and a masking effect through its brewing ingredients.
