Is black bean sauce made from black beans?

Despite its name, black bean sauce is not made from black beans.

Instead, black bean sauce is made from dried, fermented soybeans, which turn a dark brownish-black during the curing process -- hence the name.

Used as a condiment in stir-frys and Asian cuisine or as a flavoring agent for sauces, black bean sauce is extremely flavorful (and salty).
