Braggs is a soy based sauce that is used to add a salty flavor to food, you can easily replace with Sea Salt. Braggs isn't raw, some people use it and some people don't. It can be found at your natural health food store.

So if the recipe calls for 1/8 cup or or even 1/2 cup - I can use that much sea salt? I am sorry if I sound stupid LOL - just want to make sure...
Thanks for your help

I would be too salty to used that much salt. Perhap maybe one to two pinch of salt instead. You can always taste it after and reajust the salt!

I would say add salt to taste... I would be surprised if a recipe called for 1/2 cup of Braggs anyway that would be way to salty but if it does you can always go by your taste buds

try to get NAMA SHOYU instead of braggs if you can, or if you are gluten intolerant, tamari may still be a better choice than braggs. if you search for previous threads on braggs, you will see people saying that the process by which braggs is produced is questionable, and some people are sensitive to braggs. nama shoyu has similar taste, and while not raw, is live, unlike braggs. nama shoyu at least has the good bacteria in it. if you cant get nama shoyu, i would still use tamari (wheat free soy sauce) instead of braggs. i thought someone said that even alissa doesnt recommend braggs anymore (?)
About a year ago, Alissa said she was using Nama Shoyu in place of Bragg's Liquid Aminos.
I find that NS, Bragg's and Tamari all make me feel less than stellar. Replacing any of them with a quality sea salt works out great. I never have figured out why they are included in raw recipes when they are not raw. Ah, well.

gf = gluten free
Nama shoyu = cooked fermented soy beans, made into a sauce, then bottled. Other types of soy sauce are cooked before being bottled. So nama shoyu is raw, in one sense of the word. But it's not really raw.
