Coconut aminos is a salty, savory seasoning sauce made from the fermented sap of coconut palm and sea salt.

The sugary liquid is used to produce a variety of food products.

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.

Coconut aminos is not a significant source of nutrients, though it may be a good option for people with certain dietary restrictions.

It’s soy-, wheat- and gluten-free, making it a healthier alternative to soy sauce for those with certain allergies or food sensitivities.

People often avoid soy sauce due to its high sodium (salt) content. Coconut aminos has 90 mg of sodium per teaspoon (5 ml), while traditional soy sauce contains about 280 mg of sodium in the same serving size.
