Soy Sauce / Salt Substitutions

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

soySo why do I use soy sauce substitutions and not just the “real thing?”  The majority of conventional soy sauces on the market are made with non-organic, genetically modified (GMO) soybeans.

Long term use of unfermented soy related products has shown an increase in soy allergies, a disruption in proper thyroid function, and an overload of estrogen in the body.   That is reason enough for me.

Below I am sharing some common soy sauce substitutions that you may see in the “raw food” ingredient list.  Not all are raw.  I would rather use a non-raw sauce then one that is made from GMO soy.  Please select the product that is right for you.

    Thanks for info… had never heard of Coconut Aminos…
    Is there a specific condiment product which comprises or uses this?

    Also: for those interested in combatting high blood pressure (40% of American adults), the chief factor to consider is sodium content for these alternatives, not so much gluten, dairy, or other elements. Non-GMO – excellent and important! But hidden health hazard needing more attention is sodium content! Is it available? Thanks.
