What Is Coconut Aminos?

As we all know, soy sauce is definitely not paleo.  But coconut aminosSoy sauce 560_292 is a great alternative for any recipe that calls for soy sauce.

Less salty, it still has the same intense flavor.  It is paleo-friendly because it doesn’t contain the soy and wheat found in regular soy sauces. 


Here is the one I use, but you can also make your own at home as shown here.

Just like maple trees, coconut trees are being tapped for their sap.

As per Coconut Secret, the products are all made through raw methods of either aging the sap for up to 1 year, or evaporating it at low temperature after it is collected.

The most remarkable blessing about tapping a coconut tree, is that once it is tapped, it flows its sap continuously for the next 20 years.  From a sustainability viewpoint, the harvestable energy production from tapping coconut trees for their sap (which yields 5,000 liters per hectare), rather than allowing them to produce fruit, is 5-7 times higher per hectare than coconut oil production from mature coconuts.

Try replacing your regular soy sauce with coconut aminos and let me know what you think in the comments box below.
