Healthy eating used to involve soy. Tofu, miso, soy sauce: the more soy, the better! These days, we healthy eaters have reconsidered. Tofu seems pretty easy to give up. But soy sauce? That nectar that makes pretty much anything better and salty and just wonderful? Nope, that's got industrially-processed soy as well as gluten. Bummer. Luckily, the folks at Cocoburg deliver the umami. They already make jerky out of slowly dried coconut meat spiced perfectly. Now, enjoy their ultra-premium Coconut Aminos and add some next-level amazement to your bowl of rice (cauliflower or whatever you like). ~
For the true, true stories behind this incredible foodstuff, read on.
Coconut is pretty darn good for you. So are fermented foods. And, of course, foods rich in salty umami flavors are utterly wonderful. Combine all three and you have THIS bottle of Coconut Aminos from Cocoburg. It's the richest, thickest, most awesome coconut aminos I have ever tried and I have tried a LOT. It's a luxury drizzle on your best recipes: mild with salt with a rocket-ship blast of flavor that delivers more than any garden-variety coconut aminos can.
From a little company out of Brooklyn called Cocoburg comes this Cadillac of Coconut Aminos. Have you ever tasted the difference between supermarket balsamic vinegar and the seriously GOOD stuff? The flavor mileage you'll get out of a high-quality product like this is so far beyond the standard coconut aminos you'll wonder how on earth you can go back to the usual stuff. You can, but use this like you'd use your super-fancy olive oil or balsamic: for a burst of finishing flavor rather than the main cooking ingredient. You'll get more bang for your buck and more deliciousness with each drop of Cocoburg Aminos.
The first time I tried coconut aminos in place of soy sauce I was—let's say—skeptical, in the same way we are skeptical of any food that tries to be something that it is not. Salty brown sauce? That's made out of soy! You and me and everyone are broadening our perspective just a little to accept that fermented coconut sap and salt in just the right combination is freaking delicious. Because it is.
The Cocoburg Way of Life & Promise to You:
The idea is simple but revolutionary: we believe that simple, natural, unprocessed foods are not only the most delicious, but also the most healthy.
Looking out on a world of heavily processed foods, we feel a bit like pioneers as we offer you Cocoburg: the first ultra-premium vegan, paleo, gluten-free, soy-free coconut aminos known to humanity.
LUXURIOUS, SAVORY, & FLAVORFUL.
Why Coconut Aminos are better than soy sauce:
There's a lot of reasons to ditch the soy sauce and move on to something more . . . evolved. The first few reasons are more about the soy sauce itself: it ain't what it used to be. Old school soy sauce was fermented, slowly, out of locally-grown soybeans (as there really weren't any other kind). It was pretty good stuff. But these days, soy sauce is a highly processed food, much to our disappointment. The soybeans are almost certainly a GMO crop, for starters. Then there's gluten from wheat, and a whole bunch of factory processing of the brown salty liquid to make it shelf-stable and perfectly the same from batch to batch.
Here's some of the many reasons coconut aminos are wonderful FOR you:
Coconut sap and aminos have all 9 essential amino acids and 5 out of 7 of the conditionally essential amino acids, as well as a few others to help our bodies out. The sap also contains the amino acid glutamine, which doesn’t turn into MSG since coconut aminos isn’t fermented with a bacteria or yeast. (Just don't cook with it: drizzle on finished foods.)
Coconut sap contains a wide variety of minerals, vitamins, and amino acids (more on that in a minute), including high levels of potassium, vitamin C, and B vitamins (source). Its neutral pH also helps balance the body and make it alkaline.
