Coconut aminos are made from a combination of coconut sap and sea salt and it boasts a whopping 17 amino acids. The building blocks of protein, amino acids are an essential component of human muscles, cells, and other tissues. They are also essential in biosynthesis and in transporting neurotransmitters.
A Substitute for Soy and Gluten
Coconut aminos taste similar to soy sauce, so some people like to use it as a gluten-free and soy-free substitute for the popular Asian sauce. Enjoy it with sushi or added to stir-fry and you’ll get a wonderful, Asian flavor without having to wonder what’s really in there.
Mark Sisson even gave coconut aminos his seal of approval.
