Tamari vs. Coconut Aminos
What is the difference between tamari and coconut aminos? Read on to find out!
Tamari is an alternative to soy sauce. Regular soy sauce contains roasted grain (most commonly wheat) while tamari focuses on soybeans. However, it is important to note that some brands of tamari still contain wheat so make sure to look for tamari labelled wheat-free.
Coconut aminos are a soy and wheat-free alternative to soy sauce made from salt and coconut tree sap. They are sweeter and not as strong as soy sauce or tamari but make a great substitute for those avoiding soy entirely.
