So I Finally Found Some Soy Sauce...
0

9 posts in this topic

I was unable to find the Kikkoman gluten free soy sauce, but i did find San-j. I got the Black label version. So what do i need to know about this sauce? Hints? Tips? Anything?

 

I've been wanting a good stir fry for quite some time. Or some Japanese food.... :lol:

 

I did notice on the label they use "alcohol". Am i right to assume that its either rice or corn based? I was slightly curious about it. :)

Yes, marinade some quality beef, pork  chicken (sliced) or seafood with soy sauce (easy on the soy sauce), italian dressing, garlic, powdered ginger, honey and minced dried onions - for several hours or longer.  Stir fry (without the merinade) and add your fav veggies until done to your likeing.

 

  Serve with rice and thinly sliced green onions to garnish.

 

Yeah, the alcohol would be listed as wheat, most are not wheat, if not all.

ok..lazy...didn't read whole thread - but thought I'd add

 

smart and finals HUGE jug of cheap soy sauce is gluten free -- have no idea what other offending items may be in this jug - this is what my gluten-free men use often for multiple uses.

 

for me - I stick with SanJ Tamari -- can't have it often, but is definitely gluten-free and the one I trust.

1/3 SanJ Tamari gluten-free soy sauce, 1/3 freshly squeezed citrus juice*, 1/3 pure apple cider vinegar.  Sweeten to taste if necessary, use as teriyaki sauce marinade and cooking sauce for chicken, can be braised or baked in this. 

 

* we have a lot of Meyer lemons at this time of year, so I might use that instead of an orange or a mandarin orange

I think she means to shake excess marinade before stir frying... or you will end up boiling the meat/ veggies. They need to be dry to get a good sear.

 

There's an awesome dish I make with shrimp... could also do it with chicken:

 

Quick Marinade

 

3 tsp corn flour or potato starch
1.5 pounds shrimp (Could also use chicken)
2 tsp gluten free soy sauce
1 egg yolk, lightly beaten
1 tsp toasted sesame oil
1-2 tbsp vegetable oil for sautéing
 
Honey and garlic sauce
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp dry sherry
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
5 tsp gluten free soy sauce
 
Marinate the chicken/ shrimp for 30 minutes or more.
First pan fry the shrimp/ chicken and drain well excess oil.
Heat the honey garlic sauce for a minute or so until syrupy and then toss the cooked shrimp/ chicken in the sauce until coated well. Serve over steamed rice. Yum!

    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
       
    • Thank you. This is really helpful. I will call around next week.  I just want to heal! 
    • My endoscopy showed i had decreased folds in my duodenum. The biopsy came back and showed that my villi were fine... i have been on a gluten free diet for 6 years because i was just told i was intolerant but never had any testing before. when i eat gluten i get sick for 2 weeks. i came down with issues of other foods in march so they were trying to figure out why and wanted to know if i had celiac are not because that would explain why dairy and fructose are a problem.. both intolerant test for both were negative but the fructose test made me extremely sick but it was negative...      Im trying to figure out why i have decreased  folds in the first place. my Gi doctor is stumped on that to why the endoscopy would show damage but the under the microscope are fine. She is going to call the dr who did my scope and then is supposed to get back to  me..    would being gluten free for 6 year make it so there was damage and then my vili are now fine but still cant be seen in the endoscope?
