The Paleo Diet Information

A paleo diet is based on eating the foods our ancestors would have eaten. Those foods include meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruit, nuts, seeds and healthy fats.

Meat and poultry is allowed on the paleo diet as long as it’s from grass-fed animals. But it’s important to think like our ancestors and avoid consuming meat that has been treated with antibiotics or hormones.

Much like how maple syrup comes from the sap of a maple tree, coconut aminos are made from the nectar of a coconut palm tree, specifically its flowers. This sap is then left to age and ferment with a bit of salt added. That’s it, in a nutshell. The simple sauce has a shelf life of about two years, and should be refrigerated after opening.

Because the liquid is made from a coconut blossom, coconut aminos are naturally soy-free, gluten-free, and contain much less sodium than soy sauce, according to WebMD. They have 17 amino acids (hence its namesake, per Medical News Today), which may be generating middle school science class flashbacks of the “building blocks of life” for you right now. Amino acids are simply what proteins are broken down into in order for your body to absorb and make use of them.

Paradoxically, coconut aminos taste pretty much nothing like coconut, making them a decent stand-in for soy sauce because of its adaptability.
