Coconut aminos are a healthier alternative to soy sauce and are often recommended as a healthy soy sauce substitute on paleo diets. Soy products should be eaten in moderation and some of them should be avoided completely. Unfortunately most soy products come from genetically-modified (GMO) soybeans, and how GMO products affect health is still unclear. If you decide to use soy products, find ones that are made from non-GMO, fermented, unprocessed soy and that are gluten-free.
