I recently came across a supplier for Coconut Aminos, something I’d been trying to find for quite a while.
What is Coconut Aminos?
When the coconut tree is tapped it produces a highly nutrient-rich “sap” that exudes from the coconut blossoms. This sap is raw, very low glycemic, an abundant source of 17 amino acids, minerals, vitamins, and has a nearly neutral pH. A comparison between coconut tree sap and soy, shows that coconut sap contains 2-14 times the amino acid content of soy.
It is a soy-free seasoning alternative for use like soy sauce and Tamari in salad dressings, marinades and sautés. It doesn’t have a coconutty flavor.
Coconut Amino’s have 65% Less Sodium then Soy Sauce and are,
- a High Source of Liquid Aminos
- 100% Organic
- USDA Organic
- Non GMO Project Verified
I purchased a gallon from iHerb.com. With shipping it came to around AU$95. But you can also get it in smaller quantities, around 230mls, for about $7 plus shipping. It took around a week for delivery.
