What's the difference? What's better for you?

I know Bragg's is actually supposed to be good for you. So, I bought a bottle. Still it sits...waiting...
NO clue how to use it. Odd, IMHO, taste.

I think tamari's a healthier version of soy.
sorry

My first choice is nama shoyu.
My very last choice is Bragg's. I'm not sure why, but my intuition says to keep away from it. (And that is not to put down anyone who uses it. )

edited to add: Nama shoyu is raw/unpasturized soy sauce. Since it's unpasturized, it has a lot of good baterica/enzymes in it, I believe, like lactobacillus.

I believe that the tamari vs. soy sauce is that soy sauce has wheat in it and tamari does not. Shoyu and soy and soya are just different transliterations of the same word. I also use Bragg's sometimes in the same way that I would use soy or tamari -- such as to season a stir fry. I prefer the flavor of soy and tamari but I thought Bragg's liquid amino acids were supposed to be healthier.

Both Shoyu and tamari are natural fermented soy sauces and like was said abouve Shoyu contains wheat but tamari doesn't. Braggs aminos are unfermented soy sauce. All three have no salt or chemicals added and can be used interchangeably like any soy sauce. I used to use Braggs all the time but have switched to Shoyu because the fermentation helps to neutralize the phytates in the soy.
