Coconut aminos are a healthier alternative to soy sauce
Soy sauce is a popular condiment known for its rich, salty taste and is usually paired with Chinese or Japanese cuisine. While it can enhance the flavor of a lot of dishes, it is high in sodium and contains wheat, gluten, and soy, which some may find difficult to digest.
If you’re looking for a healthier alternative to soy sauce that still has a lot of savory flavor, then coconut aminos may be a good alternative.
What are coconut aminos?
Coconut aminos, also known as coconut liquid aminos, are made from fermented coconut sap mixed with salt and water. It is a thin, flavorful sauce that has a similar consistency to soy or tamari sauce but contains less salt.
It also has the added benefit of being soy, wheat, and gluten-free. Although this product is made from the sap of the coconut plant, it does not taste like coconut.
