As I journey through Grace Young’s Stir-frying to the Sky’s Edge for Wok Wednesdays, I am introduced to so many new to me ingredients. Now of course I have used soy sauce over the years, but as I study nutrition, and am out there daily in the food world, I am finding alternative ingredients that align more closely with my lifestyle. Such as soy sauce. Ever since going paleo and excluding soy from my diet, I have found a substitute for soy sauce- Coconut Aminos, which is aged coconut sap blended with mineral rich sea salt. The product is slightly effervescent and not as salty tasting as most soy sauces, I find it a great alternative. But alas there is trouble in the BRK, my son has a coconut allergy, so what is a paleo to do? Here enters San-J Reduced Sodium Organic Tamari Gluten Free Soy Sauce a wonderful compromise to my paleo lifestyle and keeping my child safe. I would rather be safe in my kitchen than fret over a small amount of soy in my diet. If you are looking to eliminate gluten from your diet, then give either of these sauces a try as they are both GF and organic. If you are looking to reduce soy in your diet, go with the coconut aminos.
What is your favorite soy sauce brand, or soy sauce substitute, and have you ever tried coconut aminos?
