Nama Shoyu alternative?
Posted by: MissEleanor ()

A ton of recipes I'm finding call for Nama Shoyu. I am allergic to soy. Is there an alternative? I used some hemp sauce but I had to order it from the UK, it cost a bundle. Something more accessible?

Huh, seems so obvious =) I guess I was automatically looking for a liquid. But what is soy sauce besides salt water anyway?
Thanks!

It's fermented soy. I think soy beans are down and then fermented. Nama Shoyu means "living" because the soy broth ferments for longer than two years and creates healthy bacteria through this process.

There is nothing "living" in Nama Shoyu, those healthy bacteria cannot live forever.

Well, it certainly won't live forever once it get's near my raw vegan sushi. ;-)
