Quasi-shuffle algebras have been a useful tool in studying multiple zeta values and related quantities, including multiple polylogarithms, finite multiple harmonic sums, and qq-multiple zeta values. Here we show that two ideas previously considered only for multiple zeta values, the interpolated product of S. Yamamoto and the symmetric sum theorem, can be generalized to any quasi-shuffle algebra.
