Answered by Ustadh Salman Younas
Question: Is Tamari that has alcohol added as a preservative allowed?
Answer: assalamu alaykum
Tamari is one specific type of Japanese soy sauce.
Tamari that has alcohol added to it as a preservative would be permitted to consume. The alcohol is both small in quantity and is not being used in any manner resembling intoxication.
If there are non-alcoholic alternatives, it would be best to opt for them given the difference of opinion on the issue.
