Gluten Free, Soy Free Soy Sauce?
0

23 posts in this topic

Does anyone know if there is actually a gluten free, soy free substitute for soy sauce? I am really missing soy sauce on my stir fry! I tried a ginger sauce but that was just horrible. :unsure:

I appreciate any suggestions!

Thanks!

I do not know of one offhand, but I swear I saw a posting of a recipe for a "mock" soy sauce recipe on this board at one point. Maybe someone remembers and can post the link?

Its hard, I know! Hopefully someone can help out. good luck!

SOY SAUCE SUB

2 cups beef broth

2 tsp cider vinegar

1 tsp molassas

1/8 tsp ground ginger

dash of pepper/onoin powder/garlic powder

Combine all in saucepan. Boil until reduced to 1/2 cup. Store in fridge.

I can't take credit for the recipe--I found it here. I *think* possibly it was from Liz (lonewolf)?

Is Tamari soy free? I know you can get wheat-free Tamari, but I'm not sure if it's totally soy free too

Hi

I just noticed your question about a gluten free soy sauce. Walmart (the ones that have the grocery store) carry gluten free soy sauce, its their brand (great vaule brand). Several of Walmart great vaule brands are gluten free, here are some we have tried. Bacon, lunch meat, spagetti sauce, alfredo sauce, parmesan cheese, and I'm sure there are more out there. The back of all of these items say gluten free.

Tamari is NOT soy free. It is sometimes (but not always) wheat/ gluten free.

Problem: the minimum order for shipping is $20, but they say there's a limit of one jar of chickpea tamari (at $8.50) per order - and all their other products seem to contain soy!! Dang it....

Thanks for this recipe. I need to sub dark agave for molasses because I have cane sugar allergy. I'll also try a bit of garam masala instead of the last 2 ingredient. I'm anxious to try this on my next stir fry creation.

I'm also wheat/soy intolerant and jerseyangel has a really good substitute. Make sure your beef broth is gluten free!!!Kitchen Basics, Rachael Ray and Walmart GV are gluten free.I find balsamic vinegar adds a good flavor. Here is a recipe from About.com:Chinese Food. Make substitutions as needed.

Soy Sauce Substitute

2 Tablespoons beef broth (gluten-free)

1 Tablespoon red wine vinegar (I omit)

1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

2 teaspoons molasses

1 teaspoon sesame oil

1/8 teaspoon garlic powder (I also add ginger)

black pepper to taste

1/4 cup boiling water

Preparation:

Combine all the ingredients. At this point, you can either use the sauce as is, leaving for an hour to give the flavors a chance to blend, or for a thicker, richer sauce, boil the liquid until it is reduced by half. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Use within 3-4 days.

Note: this recipe makes a very small amount, I increase the beef broth to 8 oz.,then add ingredients to taste. Because it contains vinegar, it keeps longer than 4 days in the frig.

They have wheat-free Tamari in about every store I've been to. Tamari is virtually the same as soy sauce.

There is a gluten free Tamari sauce available.....but it contains soy. Tamari is made from soybeans....a soy intolerant person would have to use a mock recipe.

Yes, you are in luck. There are two main soy sauce brands. The first, and best, is San-j What-free soy sauces. There are delicious, but a bit pricey. La Choy makes a wheat -free sauce, but it is not very tasty, IMMO. I buy the San-j at Whole Foods Market. You could buy online, if your stores don't carry them. There is also a low-salt wheat-free version San-k makes.

YES!!! THERE IS!!!! I have Celiacs and am also soy intolerant and a vegetarian, so giving up my beloved soy sauce was killer!

However, my boyfriend recently found me a soy-free, gluten-free soy sauce substitute: Coconut Secret. I broke the stir-fry fast!

Coconut Secret is made with Coconut Aminos. Not sure how this will jive with some people's systems if they have a nut allergy. In any event, my gosh it's good. Less sodium than tamari, loaded with vitamins, slightly sweet flavor. You will not miss your soy sauce!!

Coconut Secret is sold at Whole Foods (maybe Wegman's, but I haven't looked) for about $6.00 a bottle. It's got essentially the same price tag as Tamari, but I can totally justify it if it means I get a nice bowl of rice with ginger, scallions, and some tasty Coconut Secret!!!

    • So, I know I'm obsessing but...... University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center website says any total IgA result over 20 won't affect the celiac test.   If this is so,  I'm still confused as to what a weak positive ttg iga means even though her result was barely in this category.  Why bother having a weak positive anyway?   I just don't get it and our doc is on vacation so I won't know what he'll recommend for another week.  I'll be finding out this week if we can see a GI without a referral. Our lyme doc (she's had lyme, may still have it, like I said it's a long story) is having her do an IgG wheat test but I don't think that has any bearing on celiac does it?    
    • Hi!  I've had good luck at the Minnesota state fair because most food booths are only doing one thing so there is no cross-contamination. For example: french fries or chocolate covered bacon or Indian kebabs.   But I live in California and I am heading to the state fair today! Does anybody have any great food suggestions that are definitely gluten-free there? Thanks, Celiac C.
    • Hi.  I have been reading your post and thinking about how my pain was around diagnosis.  It was above the belly button, I think where you are describing.  At the time I assumed I had a stomach ulcer.   I had been taking Neurofen for an ear problem and assumed it was the NSAID that had caused my stomach ulcer (which I actually didn't have, when I had an endoscopy a few weeks later my stomach was looking great! My small intestine was not!).   Going back to the pain, it was a burning feeling.   My doctor prescribed Omeprazole but it didn't touch it.   In fact I ended up with bad D. which eventually lead to me having all the tests for Celiac Disease.   I still get that pain if I eat oats (pure oats) that are supposed to be OK for most Celiacs.     I get various pains in different places in my digestive tract from time to time, but that burning pain is something I won't forget. The other thing I had that you mention was that pain between the shoulder blades.  I had that - I felt almost like someone was pushing my shoulders down.  So odd. I get palpitations when I am anemic.    I hope you get some answers soon.  It is pretty tough having to keep going from one doctor to another, but sometimes it is the only way.   
    • I sit in an ice bath after a long training (running or riding).  It speeds my recovery, I swear!  
    • Oh, one last thing..... ICE PACKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You'll feel better. Hey, you have a tub? Want to join the polar bear club in the privacy of your own home? Fill that thing with cold water & dump a 5 or 10 lb bag of ice in there. I'm serious.
