What's healthiest? Soy sauces, Tamari, or Bragg's? What about Coconut Aminos?

"Soy Sauce
Cons: It’s high in sodium—about 1,000 mg per serving. For those watching their blood pressure or other health conditions, it may not be the healthiest option. Soy sauce naturally contains MSG, which is produced during the fermentation process. Because it’s not added, it may not be on the ingredient list. The soybeans and wheat used to make the sauce may be contaminated with GMO crops. Because of the wheat content, the sauce contains gluten, which may affect those with gluten sensitivities. Soy is also a common food allergen.....

Coconut Aminos
Made from raw, coconut tree sap and sun-dried sea salt, then naturally aged, this condiment is catching on as a potential alternative to soy sauce. Completely free of soy, it has a dark, rich, and salty flavor with a faint, sweet aftertaste, and can be used in salads, marinades, and as a seasoning.
Pros: Gluten-free. Soy-free. Lower sodium option. Contains a higher level of 17 amino acids, which may contribute to heart health, digestive health, and mood stabilization. Also contains vitamins B and C, and various minerals.
Cons: Couldn’t find any!
