Bragg's Liquid Amino Alternative?

Hey, guys!!

I'm relatively new to raw--(been dabbling for about a year now)... and began noticing a lot about Bragg's Liquid Aminos... what's the deal?

I also read that it is derived from soybeans, which I'm allergic to... does anyone know of any alternatives to the Liquid Aminos?? If they're so good, I don't want to miss out!!




  • I've been 95% raw for a yr and a half and have never used it... I think you can sub with something salty if that helps...

    You can sometimes get soy-free miso tamari from South River Miso ( There are several flavors, and they only have one flavor available at a time, when they have it in stock. It's also a living food, unlike Bragg's. However, it's a specialty item that you probably don't want to make a staple due to its price and lack of availability--South River Miso doesn't ship between late April and September or so.

    I agree that you can do without it. Sometimes I'll mix miso (also available soy-free) with water and some extra salt to substitute for Braggs or Nama Shoyu. Often just adding salt to the recipe is sufficient.

  • thanks, that's great to know!!

  • Somewhere on this site there's a suggestion for soaking mushrooms (and...I don't know what) and using the soaking liquid in place of Braggs or nama shoyu/soy sauce.

  • the only Braggs that I've found where I am in Canada is called 'Braggs Liquid Soy Seasoing', but its not enhanced with any aminos. Is this the same product?
