  • Soy Sauce Replacement???

    Hello all,

    I am a big fan of Japanese/ Chinese cuisine and cook a lot of my own dishes for diner and lunch. I'm looking over my Bento box recipies and noticing a lot of soy sauce in them. Does anybody have a paleo friendly replacement for soy sauce?

    thanks,
    PN

    You could use Tamari sauce. Gluten free of course

      I used coconut aminos (1) Raw Organic Vegan Coconut Aminos 8 fl oz: Amazon.com: Grocery & Gourmet Food as a marinade when I made Paleo Beef Jerky. I think it has the same flavor profile as soy sauce, without containing either soy or wheat.

      I did a post showing how I made the beef jerky on my blog, if you're interested.

        YES to raw coconut aminos. Perfect substitute for soy.

          I use coconut aminos, but it is very expensive and a bit sweeter. So generally I will put a bit in some sesame oil when I'm dipping things like sashimi and hand rolls.

                Kikkoman makes a gluten free soysauce. Can't vouch for it as I haven't tried it:

                  i had kikkoman gluten free and it was not the mest taste - but good enough. there are other gluten free soy sauces on the market, too.

                  http://celiacdisease.about.com/od/gl...-Soy-Sauce.htm

                  currently i buy a brand when i am in hong kong.

                  but i think - strictly spoken - even gluten free soy sauce is a pb no-no, right?

                    i had the kikkoman gluten free which was not that great. i am currently buying a gluten free soy sauce on my hong kong trips.

                    there are others on the market too:

                    http://celiacdisease.about.com/od/gl...-Soy-Sauce.htm


                    but as i understand - products labelled "gluten free" are also kind of a pb no-no, right?

                      (posted in this thread via iphone app. the app also shows me that i participated - yet - my entry is missing )

                      also heavy soy sauce user (i love soy sauce/wasabi to dip avocado in - so simple so great) - and therefore exited to learn abt true primal alternatives - on my shopping list now!

                      I was going out of my way for finding glutenfree soy sauce in Hong Kong. Had the Kikkoman (taste is so so) - currently use a Hong Kong local brand (tastes like the real deal - but then again not so sure which standards they adhere to).

                      There are other options for GF Soy Sauces listed here:

                      http://celiacdisease.about.com/od/gl...-Soy-Sauce.htm

                      But:

                      strictly speaking - even GF Soy Sauce is a PB no-no, or am I wrong with that?

                          just found a store in shanghai carrying bragg liquid aminos and bought 2 bottles.

                          but it is made from soy still - and thereby also not really PB proof - right?

                          i also have tried kikkoman gluten free (taste was so so in my opinion) and other Hong Kong brand GF soy sauce.

                          but aren't such GF products still considered PB no-nos?

                          [if several posts of mine with similar content appearing here: forum is acting a bit weird on me ]

                            The soy (and wheat) in soy sauce is fermented, safe and primal.

                            I am more suspicious of Bragg's Liquid Amino Acids as I'm under the impression the soy is not fermented, just pre-digested to release the amino acids.

                              In normal (teaspoon) amounts nothing is being displaced or overloaded. I find tamari has the best flavor, which happens to be wheat free. Anchovy/fish sauce and worcestershire serve a similar role in other cuisines.

                              Bloggers are enamored with coconut amino sauce but such boutique products are not necessary IMO.
