I got a bottle of wheat free soy sauce sauce, but when I looked at the nutrition and ingredients, it's unfermented and the only ingredients at soybean vegetable protein protein and water. It has just as much sodium as regular soy sauce but has 18 g of protein per tablespoon. Is this a good regular soy alternative for stir frys. It is also made by braggs and is organic and non gmo

And I was also just asking in the context of, "is this better than regular soy sauce that I would use in a sir fry"

18g/tbsp would be hilariously intense, though. I kind of like the imagery of bros slamming down salty soy shots in the middle of the gym.

It's just liquid soy aminos, so if you're looking to follow a general paleo shtick, no, this is not an an acceptable substitute for soy sauce, since it's ... soy.

Are you going to die if you use this product? Probably not. However, I'm not suggesting you use it, either.

Furthermore, you're math is off. In bragg's liquid soy aminos, there's 310mg of protein in 1/2tsp. So, there's 2*310=620mg in a tsp, and 3*620=1860mg in a tbsp. That's 1.8g of protein. I spit more protein than that! ;-)

Have to second the above recommendation to use Coconut Aminos. The brand I usually see is something-Secret. It's good stuff. Makes for a mean jerky marinade.

Try coconut aminos instead. It tastes similar enough to soy sauce, but not exactly. No wheat, no soy. It's made by fermenting coconut with sea salt or sea water. Very tasty.

I wouldn't use a lot, it probably has free glutamate which is what the big attraction is, but it's unlikely to be as bad as MSG itself.
