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...
