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!!!

    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".
