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!!!

    • Welcome!   You were smart to think about cross contamination.  Although it is great that there are so many gluten-free options out there, in the beginning it is best to try a whole foods diet, until your son feels a bit better.  The learning curve for the gluten-free diet is steep.  It is better for you to get everything down before letting others feed him.   When I was diagnosed, my hubby had been gluten free for 12 years.  I thought I knew the drill and converted right over to those gluten-free goodies I baked him.  Turned out, like many of us, I had some food inolerances not related to gluten but as a result of gut damage.  So, additives like Xantham gum made me think I was getting glutened, but I was not.  So, again, try to stick to naturally gluten free foods that are less processed for a while.  When you do venture out, I use "find me gluten free" and read the reviews from celiacs (not a person who thinks gluten-free is a way to lose weight! )   Here are some great tips from out Newbie 101 thread:  
    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks
