So the other day I found a bottle of coco aminos at the grocery store. My vegan daughter has been using this stuff forever.
So what is it?
Coconut aminos is similar in color and consistency to light soy sauce, making it an easy substitute in recipes.
It’s not as rich as traditional soy sauce and has a milder, sweeter flavor. Yet, surprisingly, it doesn’t taste like coconut.
It’s soy-, wheat- and gluten-free, making it an alternative to soy sauce for those with certain allergies or food sensitivities.
People often avoid soy sauce due to its high sodium content. Coconut aminos has 90 mg of sodium per teaspoon, while traditional soy sauce contains about 280 mg of sodium in the same serving size.
Learned something new.
