Nature’s allergen-friendly soy alternative

by Niulife

‘What are Cocominos?’ you ask. Our organic Cocominos are coconut aminos, a tasty and natural alternative to soy sauce. They’re a salty-sweet condiment handmade from the sap found in the blossoms of the coconut palm. The sap is collected, then fermented and blended with sea salt to create a deliciously original alternative to soy sauce. Soy sauce differs from our Cocominos as it originates from fermented soybeans, along with roasted grains (wheat), salt, water and a yeast culture.

Our organic Cocominos are handmade from fermented coconut blossom nectar, barrel-aged to perfection. They are a deliciously healthy alternative to soy sauce containing a wide variety of vitamins and minerals.

Many people find our range of Cocomino sauces tastes very similar to soy or tamari sauce. However, it is totally free from soy and gluten, making it the ideal alternative for those who are intolerant of, or trying to avoid, soy or wheat products. Going one step better, we try to be as inclusive as possible! Our Naked Cocomino is not only soy and wheat free, but FODMAP friendly too! Made up of only organic barrel-aged coconut blossom nectar and sun-dried mineral-rich sea salt, it’s a deliciously light and healthy alternative to soy sauce that’s suitable for most intolerances.

In Australia, hospital admissions for severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) have doubled over the last decade, with studies showing that at least 10% of Aussie children suffer from an allergy*. With this in mind, when you use our Cocominos as an alternative to soy sauce, you can rest assured that you are creating a safer allergen-sensitive environment for those around you. This is especially important when providing a packed lunch for your child, as we all know children like to get their hands dirty and allergen traces can spread fast. So, when you use our Cocominos you can relax knowing that they are free of soy, wheat and nuts.

Our Cocominos aren’t just child-friendly, but adult-friendly too. We all have our own diverse and specific health journeys. Some people choose to avoid soy for various health reasons. These could be an allergy, an intolerance, or just a health choice. We know that soy is not for everyone. So, to be as inclusive as we can, we think it’s important to provide a delicious not-soy sauce alternative to add a hit of umami to your dishes.

Besides being soy, wheat, and nut free, some additional benefits of our Cocominos include:
