  • Soy Sauce

    hey folks, what is your opinion on soy sauce? I love stirfries and usually get organic, wheat free does that still work?

      Soy sauce = shoyu = big no-no IMO. That is "wheat sauce" with soy added. And it tastes terrible.

      Now, gluten-free non-GMO tamari is a totally different story. Tamari is simply fermented soybeans with water and salt. It tastes very, very different from regular soy sauce, and the difference is stunning. Tamari is so clean, crisp and flavorful while "soy sauce" is murky, salty and flavorless. I never noticed it until I made the switch to tamari, and the taste is out of this world! I STRONGLY recommend SanJ gluten-free non-GMO tamari. IMO, the reduced sodium tastes better, but the regular is great as well. You can pick it up at Genuardi's for around $4. Whole Foods sells it as well, and the regular is only around $3 for the giant bottle and $4.50 for the reduced sodium. It's fantastic and I have the monster bottle on my fridge door as we speak.

        We've switched over to coconut aminos. Tastes just as good as soy sauce!

          Sorry what are coconut aminos?
          Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

            They taste quite good - but the bottles sometimes leak so be careful during transport home from the store.

                  Some brands have actually switched over to HFCS. I only use the SAN-J organic tamari now although I am looking for coconut aminos. I'll have to look harder at the co-op or maybe just order it online. If I were to do that I will have eliminated soy completely from my life(aside from maybe eating out or some such).

                    They carry coconut aminos at both Genuardi's and Whole Foods.

                      Are Genuardi's very widespread? I've only seen them in PA.
