What are Coconut Aminos
Many times people look at my recipes and get nervous because they see ingredients they have never heard of. I was like that at one time too! Coconut Aminos? Huh? What is that? You may get frustrated and never try a recipe with that in it. But you know what? Knowledge is POWER!
I didn’t know what Coconut Aminos were until I realized that soy sauce most often has wheat in it AND how bad soy is for our health.
Coconut Aminos are also a great soy sauce replacement. This tasty soy-free sauce contains 17 amino acids and has the flavor profile of a traditional soy sauce. It is made solely from raw coconut tree sap and sun-dried sea salt, which is then naturally aged.
Not only does it have 17 amino acids, it also is filled with, minerals, vitamin C, B vitamins, and has a virtually a neutral PH. Conventional soy sauces on the market are made with non-organic, genetically modified (GMO) soybeans. Long term use of unfermented soy-related products has led to an increase in soy allergies, a disruption in proper thyroid function, and an overload of estrogens in the body.
I use coconut aminos in my “healthified” dressings, marinades, sautés, and with rice-free sushi. Click here to find it on sale!

After seeing this photo…i feel the need to make sushi asap!!! Where can I find the delicious avocado salmon sushi recipe?
In this book. 🙂
I’m curious: you say that unfermented soy is connected to various problems, but soy sauce is *fermented*. So is there a problem?
I thought I’d give coconut aminos a try and bought a bottle…but then I realized I hadn’t read the nutrition facts. A single tsp of coconut aminos contains 1 gram of sugar. If I put a quarter cup into something, that’s 12g of carbs right there. And I’ve read that it has a weaker flavor than soy sauce, so you might want to use more. This doesn’t make it seem like a very good alternative to wheat free soy sauce, which has 1/3 the carbs (1g carbs per tablespoon, none from sugar).
Fermented still has issues with phytoestrogens. A quarter cup would be quite a bit. I would only use 1 or 2 servings of something like this.
I’m dying for sushi! Where can I find this rice free sushi recipe?
In this book. 🙂
Thanks for the info!
I couldn’t find coconut aminos so I bought liquid aminos. Is this the same thing or it is different? Is there anything wrong with liquid aminos?
That is made form soybeans which I avoid.
Tamari Sauce and Coconut Aminos are they interchangeable: Which is the better product to use?
Yes. Both are good options.
