I've serched high and low for a gluten free worcester sauce. Does anyone know of any gluten free brands or even a recipe to make a gluten free worcester sauce? I want to make a casserole that calls for worcester sauce but I can't find any gluten free ones.

I did find a controversy in my quest though.... :huh:

Check this out:

Lea & Perrins say on their website that their sauce is gluten free, yet they have malt vinegar listed as an ingredient:
http://www.leaperrin...contacts.php#qe

However this artcile states Lea & Perrins admitting that their sauce actually does contain gluten:

Interesting isn't it??? <_<

What do you guys think?

I'm guessing that you are talking about Lea and Perrins Worcestershire Sauce. I have a bottle in my fridge and nowhere does it state any ingredient as being malt anything. My bottle is a US bottle, i'm not sure if their ingredients vary from country to country. Also, the website address that you have for them isn't the one for the us. Possibly that is the problem. Here are their FAQ's if you would like to check things out. http://www.lea-and-p...om/contacts.php

Looks like there is a different UK version of Lea and Perrins Worcestershire Sauce.
I know i've looked at the ingred list here in the US and there was no malt vinegar. And i see it on the safe lists regularly.

Europe has an entirely different set of meanings for gluten-free vs "naturally gluten-free" and they allow labels to say gluten-free when there IS a measureable amount of gluten, if it is below some ppm. I'd hope that at least ONE of their terms means 0ppm.

Lea & Perrins most definitely is gluten-free in the U.S. and most definitely is NOT gluten-free outside the U.S. You're mixing up the countries.

In the U.S. French's and Kroger are also gluten-free.

That's odd... :huh:
It's annoying that they only make a gluten free version in the US. Why wouldn't they keep the same recipe for all countries? You think it would make sence to be consistent... Who knows...

Richard,
Thanks. I'll check out French's and Kroger here in Canada.

Hopefully I'll find something :)

I can only assume that L&P tested various versions and in Canada folks liked the one with wheat best. Check the French's, but do you all have Kroger stores there?

Also, check out Angostura. I'm pretty certain it's gluten-free here.

Thanks everyone!
I've never heard of a Kroger store in Canada but I do live in a very small place. I'll also look for the Angostura sauce.

I may just have to get one of my US relatives to bring some of your fancy gluten free worcester sauce the next time they come to visit ;)

Take care B)

I still haven't been able to find a gluten free worcestershire sauce where I live in Canada, so I got a friend to pick me up some Lea and Perrins Worcestershire Sauce in the US. He said that every store he went to in the US had malt vinegar listed on the ingredient list on the Lea and Perrins Worcestershire Sauce bottle :( Did the US change their ingredient list on this product? I am so confused right now.

Hi Carrie,
I am still waiting for the Lea & Perrins people to email me back. They must be very busy, I emailed them in October :o .

Meanwhile, I have never found a gluten-free worcestershire sauce, the first ingredient on them all is Malt Vinegar EXCEPT Heinz. I was so excited and then I read the brackets after soy sauce. The soy sauce they use has the first ingredient as wheat.

They don't sell French's brand in Canada, I called them a couple of weeks ago. They will ship to Canada however.

So I guess we have to get Heinz on board with using gluten-free soy sauce so the end result is gluten-free.

Meanwhile, my husband is going to Aspen for work in January and he is going to get some gluten-free worcestershire sauce and some Cocoa/Fruity pebbles which are also not available in Canada. Should we send you a bottle?

That's interesting you bring this up, I just got accidentally glutened by Annie's Naturals Worcestershire Sauce. It had soy sauce in it, and I bought it before I understood the dangers of soy sauce. Then significant other made a pot roast, added a couple of tablespoons to it, and the rest is history. However, what I did find in my research is that the company's creator is very sympathetic to the needs of her gluten-free customers and has been working on a gluten-free version using tamari that should be available soon, if not already.
Here's the link to the article (you have to scroll to near the end of the article for the gluten-free mention:

What is this Tamari soy sauce I hear about being gluten-free? Several times I've seen soy sauce with the word Tamari on it, and it has wheat within the first 3 items on the ingredient list. Is Tamari a brand name?

I use VH soy sauce.

Ok that is very weird :unsure: My friend is a trucker, so he has been looking at the ingredients on bottles at various truck stops across the US. Which state do you live in?

Hi Carrie,

Yeah, I have been ignored by my share of companies too <_< Let me know if they do e-mail you though.
