I went back and read the posts in the archives about Bragg's Liquid Amino Acids. Seems like nobody knows what the deal is with this? Any new information?

I have the non-GMO Bragg's Liquid Amino Acids and I'm a nonnie type O. Would like to know if I can have this or not? It's not listed on my Swami diet.

It is a soy product.

How do other soy products rate on SWAMI?

We can assume that Liquid Aminos will have a similar rating to the other soy products.

brands of any kind are generally NOT listed

however you can always read ingredients and determine if compliant or not

we've to get to know that nearly all aminos might create higher amounts of nitrogenious  charge up to 84 % for kidneys and liver... but the intake of MAP is only about 1 lays the key for healthy weight loss and better cell nutrition ;) :D.....

ther's a very interesting book from Lars Johansson which explains how and why MAP is working btw MAP means master amino acid pattern and is related to the last trouvailles of Prof. Moretti... meant here is the 8 essential aminoacids in their
combinations for better prevention against all kinds of maladies!

I found this since some weeks and must say...great and wow while implementing it into my daily praxis work... nearly everybody lacks of aminos and it's equal at what age you're going to change but the most important is the outcome of results obviously to be seen after one week!!!!
:o :o(oh)(eek)(eek)(pick_nose)(clap)(ok)(dance)(smarty)(clap)(happy)(cool)...........

I found this thread looking for the same answer.  I an an O-, nonnie.  It looks like secretors get soy, nonnies don't, but I didn't know if this was processed in a way that somehow made it an exception?  I'd love to get an answer on this.  Thanks!

Liquid Aminos is essentially chemical soy sauce as opposed to soy sauce made by natural fermentation.  Generally a more natural product is rated better than a chemical product.  But since liquid aminos is not rated and normally brands are not, it does not seem likely that we will get much better than use the rating of ingredients, use rating of the most similar product, or assume it is an unrated product and treated as neutral.

Liquid Aminos is made by taking soybeans and dumping hydrochloric acid on them to form free amino acids.

At some point the reaction is stopped by neutralizing the acid with sodium bicarbonate.  (The sodium bicarbonate forms sodium chloride which is how the company has a salty product without having to list salt as an ingredient.  But if you read the nutritional information you will notice it still has plenty of sodium) tastes.

When the hydrolysis reaction is halted the original soy protein will have been broken down into small peptide chains and free amino acids.  I know that Bragg's says that this is wonderful, but I think most health advocates consider hydrolyzed proteins a disaster.

I do not have a full understanding of all the problems associated with hydrolyzed protein products.

But the criticism of the liquid aminos often center on two hydrolyzation products based on two amino acids: glutamic acid and aspartic acid.

The hydrolyzation products containing glutamic acid may behave like MSG.  Nice flavor enhancing properties, not so great for the body.

Aspartic acid compounds seems to give some of the folks that are sensitive to aspartame problems.

One of the women I know uses that awful stuff.  I tried one drop of it.  Oh my Gosh.  It was the saltiest, nastiest stuff I've tasted since a thousand years ago when I tasted LaChoy "soy sauce".  

Stick with real organic non wheat tamari.

I have some, but have not used it in years...I keep thinking I should, but haven't. Now I'm going to do as Chloe and toss it out. I had no idea that it was made in such a way...blech.  :P
