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 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...

    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Brain fog is a common symptom.  I had a hamburger patty from a local restaurant and am suffering the effects.  Sometimes mine is bad and sometimes it is mild.  This one feels mild, provided I am not "glutened" again.  I have the exact same feelings when I am contaminated.  I actually had 2 good days this week to ony have to go back through this again.  The first day is just tired and want to sleep, but as each day goes on it seems like all I can do to concentrate and do anything.  TV is OK but for me just standing up or moving sometimes makes me dizzy.  Luckily I don't have the nausea but even sitting still I feel like I am in a swimming pool moving.  You know kind of like when you were a kid and you got in the pool or went roller skating but then got out and and you still felt like you in the pool or skating?  The anxiety and the depression is the worst.  I am taking things to help with it but it doesn't always help.  Only thing that seems to help sometimes is just going in to my room and laying there and not moving and just going to sleep.   It will pass.  Just be cautious about everything.  I have opted to let my family know that I will bring my OWN food when we have gatherings.  I don't mind being the odd man out because I am already the odd ball.  One thing I have learned and that is people mean well but mistakes happen and we are the ones who have to pay the price.   Hope you feel better soon.
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      Look into The Paleo Approach by Sara Ballentyne, PhD.  Great resource and will probably answer your questions.  I have the same problem. You have to really read labels.  The only coconut milk I can use is an organic canned one.  Others have too many ingredients that are problematic.  For now, stay with meat and vegetables as someone else has recommended.  If rice works for you, great.  If not, winter squash is good.  The diet change is overwhelming at first but then it starts to make sense.  The one good thing about an intolerance versus allergy is the possibility of someday being able to add it back into your diet once your gut has healed.

      I went gluten free about a month ago, and was finally feeling *great* last week when wham -- my well-meaning Dad cooked me dinner and forgot to check the ingredients on the fish sauce he used. The upside of being glutened for the first time is that, after a couple weeks of feeling good, I feel like I can discern the symptoms a lot better now. I've noticed that the worst part, aside from the nausea, is the "brain fog," but I'm curious if my experience of brain fog is the same as or similar to what other people are feeling. For me, it becomes almost physically painful to concentrate on anything. If I try to read a book, or watch a TV show, it makes me feel dizzy, overwhelmed, and nauseous. For a couple days, I feel like all I can do is try to stay still and do as little as possible while I wait it out. It feels similar to anxiety, but not quite the same, and none of the usual tricks for getting through a panic attack help. Do any of you experience brain fog in a similar way? Where it basically makes you feel sick to try and concentrate on anything, even fun and relaxing things?
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      I've never gone fructose free so can't help much with that.  But any fruit is probably a problem.  If you are serious about avoiding fructose you could do a search and print out a list of foods to avoid. http://www.mayoclinic.org/fructose-intolerance/expert-answers/faq-20058097 Yes, it very possible to have multiple food intolerance issues.  Many people have multiple food intolerances.  It might help to avoid any foods that are sweet for now.  Meat and most veggies are probably the way to go.  You may want to get some jerky to eat for snacks.  Peanuts might be ok but you'll need to verify that.  Boiled eggs are probably ok.  Most soda would be a no-no.

      Hi Courtney, You asked about dairy, and RMJ got it right.  Celiac disease destroys the villi lining of the small intestine.  Those villi make the lactase enzyme we need to digest dairy. Sigmoid colon thickening could be related to diverticulitis.  Which according to Wiki is a fairly common condition but doesn't always cause symptoms.  Diverticulitis can cause a problem if there is an infection though.  The sigmoid colon is part of the large intestine.  Celiac disease affects the small intestine, so celiac isn't likely involved.  I am not sure why the resident suggested celiac, unless there were some other reason to do so.  Possibly the weight loss, which could be explained by celiac disease.  Thickening of the colon may happen with Crohn's disease also.  And I'm not sure about UCD (ulcerative colitis disease) but it might cause that also, not sure https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diverticulosis https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sigmoid_colon http://biology-pages.info/G/GITract.html#pancreas http://www.ccfa.org/what-are-crohns-and-colitis/what-is-ulcerative-colitis/

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
