Coconut Secret—Using Raw Aminos

Natural Foods:  Coconut Secret-Using Raw Aminos
Well for Life

More people are starting to use liquid aminos to spice up their cooking as it adds lots of flavor, has important health benefits and is gluten and soy free.  It’s a popular alternative to soy sauce which contains wheat.


Amino Acids are the “building blocks of
protein” and incredibly important to our health.  Second only to water, protein is one of the most important substances in our
bodies, which is why it’s so important we make sure our diet is rich in amino acids.  Animal foods are the richest source of amino acids.  Plant foods are often lacking all the amino acids that make up a complete protein, which is why combining foods such as rice and beans is common, because together, they make up a complete protein.  For this reason, many vegans and vegetarians make liquid
aminos a meal time staple.


When the coconut tree is tapped, it give a highly nutrient-rich “sap” which is a low glycemic source of amino acids.  This sap is a raw, enzymatically alive product, which maximizes nutrition and absorption of the 17 naturally occurring amino acids. The specially sun dried sea salt it is combined with also makes it mineral-rich.


Mix 1/2 cup Coconut Vinegar with 1/2 cup Coconut Aminos with a bit of Olive Oil to taste.  Use it as an incredibly yummy marinade or drizzle over salads, steamed veggies.
