Salty Fact - A Great SALTernative to Soy Sauce


Mckenzie Ellis

Going out for sushi is one of my favorite things to do...seriously. 🍣

Sushi has a justified rep for one of the healthiest options for eating out: Fish is high in protein and brain-boosting omega-3 fatty acids. BUT WHAT ABOUT THE SALT? ⠀

It is important to know what you are putting on your oh so healthy Rainbow Roll or Avocado Roll...Soy Sauce. Just remember to go light on the soy sauce because it's loaded with sodium.⠀ ⠀

Try Coconut Secret Coconut Aminos as a great SALTernative. It contains 90mg of sodium per 1 teaspoon or 270mg per tbsp. Coconut Aminos is a salty, savory seasoning sauce made from the fermented sap of coconut palm and sea salt. It’s soy-, wheat- and gluten-free, making it a healthier alternative to soy sauce for those with certain allergies or food sensitivities.⠀⠀

Sodium content various depending on the brand of soy sauces. Be mindful next time you hit up the sushi joint with your friends and take it easy on the sauce.

  • Kikkoman Regular---- 920mg per 1 tbsp ⠀
  • Kikkoman Low Sodium---575mg 1 tbsp ⠀
  • Trader Joe's----- 460mg 1 tbsp⠀
