In Response To: Re: BRAGGS LIQUID AMINO VS Tamari (sue O neg)
Anyway, I use tamari primarily because of the taste. I use it in soups, and as a marinade (along with fresh garlic) for tofu. San-J wheat-free organic has 940 mg per Tbsp, while the Bragg's has 660 per Tbsp, which isn't all that much more unless you're on a sodium restricted diet. San-J also makes a wheat-free reduced sodium tamari, but it's expensive and hard to find even in some of the better health food stores.
I also avoid the Bragg's because of the aminos. In an article in the literature review, Dr. D. explains the relationship between the amino acid phenylalanine and intestinal alkaline phosphatase, which is an enzyme that breaks down cholesterol and fatty acids in the small intestine. Phenylalanine inhibits the production of this enzyme, which in type As is almost non-existent in the first place.
I've included the link, if you want to check it out for yourself. It's at the bottom of the page, the section marked "Comments" under "Blood-Groups and the Intestine."
