Coconut aminos are one of those classic Paleo condiments that you see everywhere in the community (especially because they’re AIP friendly!). Coconut aminos are made from the sap of coconut trees and provide an alternative to soy sauce (or soy aminos, if you’re familiar with the gluten free Braggs brand product). Compared to a lot of Paleo products, coconut aminos are a fairly new product – I don’t have any history to report here, because it was made in the last decade! To make coconut aminos, coconut trees are tapped; then, the sap is aged and blended with sea salt. So, at least, this product is definitely simple! Likewise, the nutrition here is simple; coconut aminos are essentially water with some coconut sugar (in small amounts – 1g per serving) and sodium. These ingredients definitely add a slightly sweet yet savory flavor to any dish, so I love including them in many of my recipes; some of my favorites are Teriyaki-Inspired Poached Salmon, Honey-Garlic Chicken Wings, and Japanese-Inspired Whitefish and Noodle Soup. You can pick up Coconut aminos from you local health foods store or at Thrive Market!
