I would presume it's fine, as it's just made from rice, which is gluten-free. I have eaten a lot of sushi since being gluten-free to no ill effect. I always take my wheat free soy sauce though of course. :)

I make my own sushi at home. So, a couple of months ago, I emailed Kame - they make a "seasoned japanese rice vinegar" and said this product was gluten free. I wouldn't know about other brands b/c this is the only one I looked into.

Hope that helps!

Bobcatgirl - do you make fish sushi or just veggie stuff?

I would love to eat it at home but am too scared about the purchasing/transportation/preparation of raw fish...

Even so, veggie sushi would be great! Any tips? Recipes? :)

I did a search on here after i ordered my takeout... There are a few posts saying that sushi is ok.... just not the imitation crab ones... I love my wheat free soy sauce : )

thanks for you help

I make veggie sushi at home with rice vinegar and no problems... I use the Marukan brand.

I don't use raw fish. I use cooked shrimp (either purchased raw and I cook it or purchased cooked), and I roll the shrimp with cucumber, carrots, and avacado. My husband (not gluten-free) has made sushi with smoked salmon (many of which are gluten-free). When he does this, he uses cream cheese and cucumber as well. Since I can't tolerate dairy, I haven't eaten these, but they look good. I have tried canned crabmeat, but the flavor isn't very strong, so it tends to get lost with the rice and veggies.

Rice vinegar (that doesn't have added ingredients) is safe. (Most seasoned ones are safe too.) Sushi is not universally OK, a lot of varieties of sushi have a sauce in them - particulalry things like eel. And, as you noted, imitation crab is right out. If there's a sauce in it (and mayonaise based sauces are also popular and I don't know what all they contain), I'd steer clear. Other than that, you' re probably ok. A good asian market can get you very fresh, sushi grade fish, that you can transport home in a cooler and use the same day for sashimi and the like. There's always a parasite risk, but that's about as minimal as you can go. (If you're near a port, check there too.)

the oriental market i go to sells sashimi frozen... we thaw it and eat it.. my hubby is japanese and he told me it is the way they freeze if that makes it safe... told me that they freeze it soo cold that it kills the parsites... but after it is thawed you need to eat it within a few days .. and if any left then cook it because it is not safe to eat raw after that...

    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.

    • Thanks I never heard of that dye before, I guess I have to find more natural meat thanks for the suggestion. 
    • Yes, I only eat one meal a day. Sometimes salad or fries or whatever I can find. And thanks for the replies again.
    • A colonoscopy is not used to diagnose celiac disease.  An endoscopy is used to obtain biopsies in the small intestine.
