I would like to know what is meant by the sentence, "As the Chinese version is more similar to a Worcestershire sauce, " in the following passage, which is taken from a text about the history of ketchup. I think a phrase "than something " should follow "more similar to a Worcestershire sauce" I wonder what is compared in the sentence.
Here, seventeenth-century English sailors discovered the delights of this Chinese seasoning and brought it to the West, where cooks tried to reproduce their own versions of the dark sauce. As the Chinese version is more similar to a Worcestershire sauce, the British used ingredients such as anchovies or oysters, mushrooms, and *walnuts to re-create those flavors. In turn, ketchup came to mean a seasoning consisting of mushrooms.
