Soy Sauce in Oil

I just got about 15-20 gallons of oil from a restaurant. They dumped the oil in 5 gallon buckets of kikkoman soy sauce.

It doesnt seem like they had any soy sauce in there, but the buckets had some soy sauce residue on the rim and Im thinking possibly had some soy sauce left in the buckets. Its probably just a few drops or what not, but Im thinking this would be bad regardless because of what soy sauce is made of.

What do i do? throw out the oil? or will standard methods of heating and filtering be ok to get this oil clean?

I know in the future I will be giving them my own buckets to dump oil into but Im wondering if this batch can be saved.

Thanks.

you Should be fine, if you are really concerned with checking to see what the soy sauce does, add some water in with the oil, The salt and spices in the soy sauce will disolve in the water. Oil doesnt really disolve anything, but the water will make the soy sauce mobile to remove it. Then you will just have to drain out the water, and should be testing for water anyways.

the #1 ingredient in Soy sauce is water, so however you're treating for water should take care of the sauce.

Good to hear. I was just thinking the salt contents of the soy sauce could do some damage.

Thanks again.

i believe salt is hygroscopic and should come out with de-watering.

Everyone says that the oil from Chinese restaurants is great. Based on the smell, I have to believe that there's soy sauce in the oil I've been collecting from a local Chinese place. So far (knock on wood), I haven't had any issues.
