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.”

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.

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!

Coconut Aminos has 73% less sodium than soy sauce. When it comes to sodium, no soy sauce can compare… Coconut Aminos has just 90 mg of sodium per teaspoon. The leading brand of “lower sodium” soy sauce has more than twice the salt at 234 mg per tsp. And it’s 100% Organic, Gluten-Free, Non-GMO, Vegan, has No MSG and contains 17 Amino Acids. It’s the healthiest, best-tasting Asian condiment on the market!
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.
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.
When 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. Read Coconut Sap Nutrition.
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.
A 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.
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.
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.
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.
