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

    • It is absolutely possible for non-Celiac gluten intolerance and/or gluten sensitivity to cause extreme symptoms. The difference between those and Celiac is that Celiac will cause actual small intestinal damage to the villi, while NCGI/gluten sensitivity can have extreme symptoms, there is no damage to the small intestine.  Other causes of bloating can be SIBO or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.  The title pretty much says it all and you need antibiotics to help combat that. Basically, your small intestine's bacteria is out of whack and you have more bad bacteria than good. I know there is a test but have no experience with this. You may want to google it and read up on it and maybe ask a specialist about it too?  This is something they should be testing for anyway to figure out what is going on.  You could also have food allergies, as opposed to an intolerance like Celiac.  You can see why this is so hard to figure out sometimes! Are you sure you are completely gluten free?  This diet has a big learning curve and cross contamination is important.  Please take a look, if you already have not, at this link.  It was written by a previous member of the forum and although it is a bit lengthy, it is what you need to know about following the diet and living gluten free successfully. She did a very good job on it!  Even tiny amounts in your diet can still cause symptoms. http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ Have you been tested for vitamin deficiencies or anemia?  These could offer a clue to see whether you are malnourished or not. Many people with celiac have both deficiencies and anemia.  Between testing for these and genetic testing to see if you carry a Celiac gene might help you to rule it out if you cannot have a scope done.  But you do remember that you need to be eating gluten for the scope? 
    • Celiac disease is a tricky rascal. Just when you think you've got it under control, it sneaks up and manifests into new and often unexpected problems. At least, this is what we have found over the last decade. From contacts with others who have Celiac disease, we know we're not alone. I'm in my early thirties and find that sometimes my body acts more like that of an old man's. View the full article
    • Thank you, Gemini.   Is it possible for non-celiac gluten sensitivity or intolerance to have this severe symptoms?
      I'm on gluten free diet two weeks now and no change... What are other causes of these symptoms beside food?
    • I am trying to decipher the test and it looks to me like the Total IgA is fine.  Your number appears to be in the middle of the reference range, which would be sufficient IgA for testing.  I am in America so your country's testing is a bit different from here....I really hope I got that right!  If you have severe enough symptoms of a GI problem, some doctors here would move onto a biopsy even with negative blood results.  I think if you cannot get a full Celiac panel done, then a scope with biopsy should come next. Severe bloating has a cause and they need to rule out a food problem. There can be other causes but food is usually a big trigger. Yes, keep us updated!  We are here to help.
