View Full Version : How does Braggs Amino taste?
05-29-2006, 07:21 PM
I cannot buy Braggs here and I have to substitute it - I know it can be substituted with Nama Shoyu but also this I cannot buy here.
What else (raw) can I use to have sort of the same taste? I tried (not raw, shame on me) Tamari Sauce and I found it way to salty and strong in taste.
Anyone has an idea?

Celtic sea salt, unless you want a liquid. You could mail order it.

thanks for the info. I will try that one day!
I live in China, so everything I mail order is really expensive because of post and package :o

braggs tastes like soy sauce, you can make a good alternative, by using Celtic Sea Salt and some portabello mushrooms, adds that smokey flavor to it

Unfortunatelly, no portabellos here either ;) But we have some brown mushrooms, softer ones, I will try those!

in Juliano's recipe book "Raw" all the recipes have the choice of either Nama Shoyu or Celtic Sea Salt. Whenever I've made his recipes I've used the salt, and they've always been delicious.

madmel, you can also use miso if you like, the darker miso has that deeper, rich, more soy taste. I use chickpea miso, that is unpasturized, so it is lighter, and yet still salty, but more nutty, than regular miso, I also use red miso sometimes, but it is soy based, but very good too.
Mostly I think the braggs adds salt, but in some recipes it bumps up the flavor a tad, I find that If I haven't made the recipe with Braggs, I don't miss it, if I've made it with Braggs in the past, it has that "hum, there's something missing" feel about it.
so, if you aren't used to it, then I'd say, no worries.
