I have Crohn’s disease and have not had Chinese food in years. Thank you so much for Coconut Secret Coconut Aminos… I took a bottle of it to a local Chinese restaurant, and they used it to cook my order. What a wonderful treat!
– Nancy R, LaGrange Park IL.

My family has been gluten-free for years, and finding a delicious soy sauce has been a real dilemma. Your Coconut Aminos is so healthy and delicious.
– Cheryl M, Hazlet NJ

A few years ago I developed a soy allergy… It’s unbelievable how many problems it can cause. Severe pain and inflammation throughout my body. Anyway, I make a lot of stirfry dishes, and I love crunchy vegetables with your Coconut Aminos. It’s even better than soy sauce.”
– Dorothy B, Manchester NH

Aloha. I am a vegan baker and cook and I teach cooking classes here on Maui. I had the joy of working with Coconut Aminos recently for a soy-free student. I made seitan and a crazy delicious dipping sauce, both with Coconut Secret Coconut Aminos as a base.
– Andrea B, Maui

I've been battling this stupid soy allergy/intolerance and I'm finding that I have to give up a lot of my favorite (processed or prepared) things because of the sneaky soy ingredients. I can tell within seconds after putting a food into my mouth, if it has soy in it or not. Asian cuisine is really hard to avoid, hurts my heart! But, I discovered your coconut aminos and it feels like I've discovered a hidden treasure. It is very versatile; yesterday I used it in my beef jerky marinade - turned out fabulous! Your product is helping me on my journey of clean eating, helping me fight this war against soy!

Stir-fry and sushi have never tasted so good.

Coconut Aminos has a delicious tangy-sweet flavor reminiscent of soy sauce but without the high salt content. Since Coconut Aminos is made from coconut tree sap, not coconuts, it does not have a coconutty flavor.

We are proud that our Original Coconut Aminos has only two ingredients:

Organic Coconut Tree Sap from our Certified Organic Farms in the Philippines, and hand harvested, mineral-rich Sea Salt collected near the coast of the southern islands and sun dried in open air structures lined with clay bricks.


Coconut Aminos from the sap of the coconut treeWhen the coconut tree is tapped it produces a highly nutrient-rich sap that exudes from the coconut blossoms.  This sap has a low glycemic index of only 35 and contains a wide range of minerals, vitamin C, broad-spectrum B vitamins, 17 amino acids, and has a nearly neutral pH.

The “Gran Molucas Sea Salt” used in our Coconut Aminos garners its name from the exotic tropical island of Mindanao, the 2nd largest island in the Philippines. It is surrounded on all sides by converging Pacific Ocean waters ~ the Sulu Sea to the West, the Celebes Sea to the South, and the Philippine Sea to the East.

Coconut Aminos - How Its ProducedA local culinary heritage in Mindanao, this unbleached, unrefined, naturally white sea salt is fed only by the sun and the sea. It is hand-harvested by local salt producers working as their forefathers did, in their ancestral salt fields.

After many days of labor, the salt is then sun-dried (to evaporate excess moisture) in open-air cages lined with clay bricks. The result is a distinctly flavorful and nutritious, mineral-rich, unrefined sea salt.

Recipe Tips

Use Coconut Aminos like soy sauce as the key ingredient in stir fry, dressings, marinades and with sushi. “We love it so much we pour it over almost everything!”

Each hand-made batch may vary slightly in flavor and color. Due to the naturally occurring fermentation of this product, the contents may fizz when opened. Refrigerate after opening.

Although this product is made in a dedicated facility that makes only Coconut Aminos, it is later bottled in a facility that also occasionally bottles peanut and walnut oils, as well as dressings that may contain gluten. The bottling facility adheres to the strictest allergen protocols, and the machines are thoroughly washed and sterilized before and after each production run. While we are virtually certain that there is no commingling, for liability reasons, we cannot 100% guarantee that there is no contamination, even though it is highly unlikely.

Coconut Saying

Coconut Aminos vs. Soy Sauce ~ you decide!

Soy sauce is one of the world’s oldest condiments, dating back more than 2,500 years. Collecting the drippings of miso, a fermented soybean paste, was the traditional, time-honored method of preparing soy sauce. And because the miso was aged (thus naturally fermented), the unhealthy components of the soybean were neutralized during the aging process.

In these modern times however, soy sauce is made by fermenting a mixture of mashed soybeans, salt, and enzymes. Many conventional soy sauce manufacturers also utilize a chemical process known as acid hydrolysis that does not incorporate fermentation, so the harmful effects of the soybean are not inactivated.

Consumer concerns about eating soy products have risen to an all-time high, and for solid, proven reasons. Soy-based foods are a big and controversial topic, and I will do my best to explain this as clearly and succinctly as possible.

GMOs

  • Soy ~ Based on USDA survey data, GMO soybeans went from 17 percent of U.S. soybean acreage in 1997, to 68 percent in 2001, to an alarming 94 percent in 2014.
  • Coconut Aminos ~ Coconut trees are NOT genetically modified and are not on any future endangered GMO crop list. Coconut Aminos is Non-GMO Project Certified.

GLUTEN

coconut tree brings coconut flour
  • Soy ~ Even though soy is inherently gluten-free by nature, soybeans are often grown in rotation with wheat crops. Farmers use the same fields to grow soy and wheat, along with the same machinery during harvest, the same storage facilities, and the same trucks for transporting. As a result, soy can be subject to gluten cross-contamination. Soybeans are one of the most cross-contaminated of all crops and many people report reacting to soy as they do to wheat and other gluten grains. Soy ranks as one of the top 8 allergens in the U.S.
  • Coconut Aminos ~ Coconut trees and their sap are completely gluten-free with no possibility of cross-contamination. Coconut Aminos is Gluten-Free Certified.

SODIUM

  • Soy Sauce ~ Traditional soy sauce and tamari contain large amounts of Sodium. An average of 940-1000 mg per Tablespoon, while the low sodium versions still contain approximately 700 mg per tablespoon.
  • Coconut Aminos ~ We are proud to report that Coconut Aminos contains only 270 mg of sodium per tablespoon. That is 73% Less Sodium than soy sauce, tamari and Bragg Liquid Aminos.

ESTROGEN

  • Soy ~ Soy mimics estrogen. Soybeans contain phytoestrogens which are powerful endocrine disrupters that mimic the body’s natural estrogen hormones. For men this can lead to a testosterone imbalance, infertility, low libido and sperm count, and increased risk of cancers. For women, it can cause estrogen dominance linked to infertility, menstrual issues and cancer. These phytoestrogens are so strong that a baby feeding on only soy formula is consuming the hormonal equivalent of 4-5 birth control pills a day.
  • Coconut Aminos ~ Coconut sap contains zero phytoestrogens, and is safe to consume for men, women and children of all ages.

ENZYME INHIBITORS

  • Soy ~ The high levels of phytic acid in soy inhibit the body’s ability to absorb important minerals including zinc, calcium, copper, iron and magnesium. Soy also contains protease inhibitors that can block the enzymes necessary for the proper digestion of proteins.
  • Coconut Aminos ~ Made entirely from coconut tree sap, our Coconut Aminos does not contain enzyme inhibitors of any kind.

GOITROGENS

  • SOY ~ Goitrogens are potent anti-thyroid compounds that inhibit the thyroid’s ability to utilize iodine correctly. When you have an underperforming thyroid gland (hypothyroidism), your metabolism slows down so you feel cold all the time, have low energy and a weakened immune system.
  • Coconut Aminos ~ The pure coconut sap used to make Coconut Aminos has NO goitrogenic compounds.

Note: If you are consuming soy sauce that is prepared by traditional methods of fermentation and made with certified organic, non-GMO soybeans ~ most of the harmful components are inactivated during the aging process. However, if you have soy allergies, thyroid, gluten, digestive, or other immune system issues, it might be best to refrain from soy sauce in your diet.
