Condiment Spotlight: The New Primal Wasabi Coconut Aminos



Wasabi Coconut Aminos

For a spherical fruit, the coconut is a bit square. Sure, its resume is pretty impressive, with healthy oil, allergen-friendly milk, and versatile flour garnering it more than a moment. But when we mingled its functionally fermented aminos with a fiery little wasabi root, the resulting sauce changed the way the coconut flavored the world around it. Don’t be surprised if it gets a tattoo and starts listening to loud music.

About the company

As a kid growing up in Tampa, Florida, Jason figured it was normal to have extended family and, at times, half the neighborhood drop by for dinner on the regular. It didn’t occur to him to wonder why the Burkes weren’t guests around someone else’s table… his mom was always the best cook in the room. And why mess with the best, especially at mealtime?

After college, a move to the burgeoning food mecca of Charleston, South Carolina proved a decent sub (but never a replacement), for Mama Burke’s Cuban-influenced recipes. The vending machine at work, however, was a different story. Health-minded but ever-carnivorous, Jason began making his own jerky – with grass-fed beef, simple spices, and a countertop dehydrator – to keep in his desk drawer. Officemates took notice (by sight and by smell), and when a handful of favors turned into dozens of orders, the seeds of a bona fide start-up were planted. Enriched with a crackerjack team, clever branding, and a test kitchen the stuff of food-taster dreams, The New Primal launched in 2012. In short order, the meat-eating masses were devouring its humanely-sourced, insanely-good jerky.  Read More

This particular dressing is great as a marinade for fish and chicken.

Every batch is taste tested by the chef to ensure quality before bottling and is locally made by hand in San Francisco, CA at La Cocina, a green commercial kitchen. The label was designed by a local artist who specializes in high-end packaging designs. All products contain 0g trans fat, no artificial additives or preservatives, and retain full flavor after cooking.

Introducing Wasabi Vodka

As if vodka and wasabi by themselves weren’t nostril-flaring enough, the mad scientists from Polish vodka brand Wyborowa have just released a line of five bizarre ‘Oddka’ vodka flavors, including Apple Pie, Fresh Cut Grass and yes, that green horseradish-ey Godzilla of a sushi-condiment, Wasabi.

According to the company’s website, the “fiery” flavor was inspired by ninjas and is designed to creep up on your poor and unassuming taste buds.

Just don’t mix it with your soy sauce and stir it into a paste. Apparently, that’s a big sushi etiquette no-no.


Wasabi and other Oddka vodka flavors, 750ml for $15 in select states; to be distributed globally by Spring 2013.
