Hi, welcome to the board!

Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce IS gluten-free--no need to find a substitute! It's one of the major brands, and comes in a dark brown bottle that's wrapped all over with tan paper.

I haven't found any safe worcestershire sauce in Canada. You can find recipes in google, but I've never tried any of them.

It depends.

In Canada, Lea & Perrins has malt vinegar, and thus is NOT gluten-free. In the US, L&P IS gluten-free.

I haven't found French's in Canada either. I use a recipe I found on the internet.

Homemade Worcestershire Sauce

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons water

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon dry mustard

1/4 teaspoon onion powder

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon pepper

Place all ingredients in a medium saucepan and stir thoroughly.

Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Simmer 1 minute. Cool.

Store in the refrigerator.

Makes about 3/4 cup.

Shake well before using.

i'm not sure what to tell you, as i don't shop in mainstream stores, really. i mostly go to the market for produce and the health food store for baking supplies. i would check your local stores, and because they are such a huge company (they have many brands under their name), chances are, if your store sells one of their items, they can order it for you.

(I am not trying to be pushy- but I was really woried about it so I looked it up and called them)

CarrieFaith and Psawyer-- It it the same recepie in Canada and USA and safe for Celiac

Acording to the L&P web site Fiddle Faddle is correct--

http://www.leaperrins.com/contacts.php#qsudan

Is the Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce sold in the US the same as the sauce sold in the rest of the world?

Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce is made to the original recipe in two factories. The original factory in Worcester, and a sister factory in New Jersey USA. The New Jersey factory follows the same recipe as the Worcester factory, although some ingredients are sourced locally. Product sold in the rest of the world is manufactured and exported from our factory in Worcester, UK. (Worcester refers to the town itself, whilst Worcestershire indicates the 'shire' or county in which the town of Worcester is located).

Is Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce gluten free?

Lea & Perrins Worcestershire is suitable for a coeliac diet, for further information on Nutritional and Allergy queries please contact us.

Wallflower - I'm not trying to be pushy either, but one of the first ingredients on Lea & Perrins in Canada is malt vinegar (at least it was in Dec. 2006).

I don't know how the company can say that it is safe. I'm emailing the company to try to straighten this out.

Huh. They don't even have email. They have a phone number which they will more than likely not answer because it's after 4pm Eastern.

Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce sold in Canada is from the UK. The UK follows the Codex Alimentarius for gluten free foods...which allows for gluten under a certain detectable level. So, there is gluten in their Worcestershire Sauce, but they can say it's "suitable for a coeliac diet." It's up to you to decide if the level is safe enough for you to consume. BTW, Rice Krispies are apparently safe to eat in the UK for this same reason, even though they have the same recipe as in North America. :)

This sounds great. I thought SOY SAUCE WAS not gluten-free.

La Choy soy sauce and San-J wheat-free tamari are both gluten-free. Read labels carefully, as San-J has several gluten-containing tamaris.

As mentioned, it depends on the soy sauce. I'm in Canada, I use VH. I don't think that's available in the states, but Fiddle-Faddle has given you a couple of options.

Thanks for the information. I never checked the labels because the nutrutionist that I saw when first diagnosed said it had gluten. This is also why I avoid most Chinese food. Thank you both so much for this information. I' m happy to put this back on my can have list.

You can make malt from things other than barley, maybe they did that?

I don't know. I always assume it's from barley and have never actually investigated it. (I'm talking about L&P, I think you are, too?)

I don't have a bottle of Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce right now (I'm so ashamed as it's undoubtably the very best, and I bought French's last time 'cause it was cheaper), but I'm pretty sure it contains both anchovies and tamarinds. Don't know about gluten. Here are the ingredients listed on a bottle of French's made in the USA from my fridge (should be listed by weight right?):

~ distilled vinegar

~ molasses

~ corn syrup

~ water

~ caramel color

~ sugar

~ spices ( aha! could be 2 or 100 )

~ anchovies

~ natural flavor ( just one?)

~ tamarind

Unless the gluten is from the secret natural flavor, I guess it's gluten-free. lm

    • Thanks, I'll check that out. I may have to apply for my own Medicare card in order to get any kind of coeliac-testing done beyond the screen (see above post.)  No, nobody has even mentioned it. I'm unsure if my doctor knows that I do not need to use my hands to vomit, or if she knows about the involuntary vomiting.  I have a part time job at McDonald's and make around $150 per week, which is how I afford to smoke. Mostly, I spend my money on (generally gluten-containing) binge food and cigarettes. I did attempt to start saving money, but then my shifts were cut at work - which meant I had more time to study, but no money, which was kind of pointless. It's complicated. Here in Australia, cigarettes are $25 per pack. These aren't fancy cigarettes either, just your run-of-the-mill Marlboro 20s. Thanks for caring. I am trying to stop I've had the vomiting thing all my life, way before I started smoking. And no, I'm not sure. I know he had an endoscopy and the flattened villi, but I'm not sure if he got a blood test - I assume he would have done, don;t know if it was the full panel. Supposedly he has this FODMAP thing, which I'll admit that I know next to nothing about. Interestingly, people who have to follow low-FODMAP or no-FODMAP diets can't eat gluten either, so there's that. 
    • Would a coeliac screen be the same as a test for antibodies, then? I have no idea why it was even included in my list of tests. It could be my brother, or my symptoms, or both - regardless, I can't say I know too much about the testing.  It's possible that my brother has coeliac disease, I really do worry about it sometimes. He was told to follow a strict low-FODMAP diet by his doctor, and eventually my parents stopped caring. Occasionally they will remind him not to eat things like pasta, greasy foods, etc. because of his condition, but by and large they don't care. He basically just eats whatever he wants. I'm not sure if it affects him or not. However, he isn't shorter than other family members - my dad is 183cm, and my brother is 178cm at the age of 14. Our mother is 173cm.  I do think I have bad digestion, yes. I get gassy and very bloated often, as well as constipated phases (and then following that, diarrhea phases.)  I have tried to ask my mum to call the doctor to get the tests done, but I'm hesitant to mention anything to do with gluten as I know they won't believe me, solely because a good friend of mine has celiac disease. I know they'll think I'm doing it for attention, or to be trendy, when in actual fact I'm just tired of being sick and having no explanation for it other than diet. I'm positive it's not dairy, as I was vegan for a couple of months at one stage. When I went back to eating animal products, I had no issues whatsoever. 
    • He had the IgG ELISA done as well as other blood panels, fecal and saliva tests. He is on an elimination diet right now where foods that score above 0.2 are eliminated for 2-6 months depending on the score, then added back slowly after the detox period.  I am aware that there is a lot of controversy over the IgG, and I'm not here to go into that issue, but I can say with certainty that eliminating the additional foods he reacted to has seen a huge reduction in the symptoms that persisted after cutting gluten and dairy. We will be attempting to add rice back in around October, and see how he does but until then I still need a solution for a baking mix.  I tried to wing it a bit with pumpkin bread today and my attempt was okay but not great. The loaf sank a bit and was overly chewy.  So, to my original question....recipes?
    • Ask the doctor's office!  But usually you can eat right after if you feel like it.  But ask them!  Some of them will try to give you crackers, so you may want to bring some gluten-free applesauce or Rice Chex
    • I'm wondering if he doesn't have an oat problem. He was only dx'd several months ago and really shouldn't use oats for a year after dx. Just thinking out loud. I too am wondering how the rice was picked out of all those other flours to be determined to be affecting him.
