(Heads up, it's 'coconut' not cocunut - there are a few members of the grammar police out there who might cut you down for that. Also, cocunut might get a few remarks from the innuendo-loving lot; they might probe that for pleasure. Ahem.)

Its like soy sauce but from coconuts. Its pretty intense stuff, you don't need much of it to cook with. I think Braggs makes it? I buy it at the farmers market but you can also pick it up at a health food store.

It's a soy-free seasoning alternative for use like soy sauce in salad dressings, marinades, saut??s, and with sushi! This delicious product does not have a coconutty flavor.

When the coconut tree is tapped, out comes a nutrient-rich sap or juice that comes from the coconut blossoms. The sap is abundant in minerals, vitamin C, amino acids and B vitamins. The coconut aminos are either evaporated at low temperature after they are collected or undergo fermentation, which can take up to a year.

It is considered a raw enzymatically alive product aged and blended with sun dried, mineral-rich sea salt and a good replacement when recipes call for soys sauce.
