This is really great. It doesn't taste exactly like soy sauce. It is less salty, more sweet and...delicious. On everything. Quite expensive though.

I wanted this as a lower-sodium option to Bragg's aminos. I prefer the taste of Bragg's over this because this has a sweet taste. I balance out the sweet by adding more cayenne.
So far so good

I have tried it both in marinades and as seasoning. So far so good, a nice soy free alternativ. Will order again!
Great multipurpose sauce

I've gone through this sauce really quickly, it goes well with pretty much anything. My favourite combinations so far have been with coleslaw, fish, prawns, sushi, in stir-fries. It's also great to use when roasting nuts and seeds. In the paleo community it is the 'soy sauce alternative' - to me, its much sweeter and isn't salty, in comparison.
A good substitute for soy sauce only when cooking

I'm trying to reduce soy in my diet, and I find this is a useful alternative for soy sauce in cooking. If you grew up on soy sauce, you'll know anything else will never taste quite the same (with the exception of tamari sauce). But coconut aminos is a decent substitute, because it does a good job of adding taste and flavour to food. On that count, it stands on its own as a seasoning for dishes. Just don't use it as a dipping sauce. When it's straight out of the bottle, it tastes kind of oddly sweet. Then you can really tell it's never going to be soy sauce!
Good alternative to soy sauce

Though it's not as sharp as soy sauce, this is pleasantly flavored and an excellent alternative for soy sauce. Shall buy again.

it doesn't quite taste like soy sauce and seems less concentrated but for what it is, it does the job

This really blew my mind. I bought it because I am trying to reduce my sodium intake and it is weird how close the flavor is to soy sauce. Perfect!

Ordered it to change from soy sauce after all that great reviews. Cant say its not a great product, a bit to sweet for me as Im on the macrobiotic Japan side , like clean taste. This is more on slightly Asian kick. Not my favorite. So its just personal. I ordered it once, ok, and thats it.
