What are the harvesting and growing process of the coconuts?
“Coconuts are organic by neglected. They are endemic and grow all around the Davao region in Southern Philippines. There is no need to use GMO coconut seeds because they easily grow around the Philippines. We harvest the coconut sap every 4-5 hours throughout a 24 hour period, 7 days a week. This process is slow and to make it sustainable, we regionalise the tapping of the flower buds to give it ample time to grow.“
How is the blending of the ingredients?
“After a series of testing and filtering, the ingredients are cooked and mixed during the evaporation process, which makes the sauce more dense and brings all the flavours together.“
What’s the difference between Organic versus conventional coconut aminos?
“Organic: All ingredients utilized are from an organic source, no GMO-ingredient used, which in turn does rely on foreign chemicals, instead of grown 100% through natural means. The farm uses biodynamic techniques to ensure organic waste is used to benefit the farm in some way or another.“
How do Filipinos consume coconut aminos?
“Filipinos consume coconut aminos during cooking; they usually use it as a traditional marinade or as a ‘sawsawan’ – dipping sauces, usually with sliced chillies, sliced tomatoes and sliced onions.“
