Sweet & Sour Sauce

13 posts in this topic

I'm looking to buy some sweet & sour sauce. I really want some Chinese food and I'm going to try making my own, but I drench everything in sweet & sour sacue. I never bought any before-I always went out to eat for Chinese-so I have no idea if it typically contains gluten or not. What are some companies/brands that make gluten free sweet & sour sauce?

You could also try to make your own, not so hard. Get a jar of gluten-free jelly that you like and add vinegar. you can alter the taste with more sugar and vinegar or even chop up a pineapple in it. If you have a juicer, you can juice your own pineapple, add vinegar and sugar and thinken with corn or potato starch.

it's worth the time to get a much better taste without the chemicals and it will keep in the fridge for sometime.

I have a home based business where one of the products I make is essentially a sweet and sour sauce with a kick. Check out my profile for my website.

Well I tried to copy what a local restaurant does Its the best when they do it. And the only thing that tasted good was the shrimp. Do you know where I can find more. Thanks

Is there a P.F. Chang's restaurant in your area? They do gluten-free Chinese food.

I just found them in Fresno, Ca. I'm going next week. Very excited about it. The bad part is there 1 1/2 hours away. so I wont be going too often. So, I'm back to my original problem, my cravings of Chinese foods. I think if could find a good sweet and sour sauce and teriaki sauce I would be ok. :D

From my Chinese cookbook:

Sweet and sour sauce

1 cup water

1/2 c. distilled white vinegar

1/2 c. sugar

1/4 c. tomato paste

4 tsp. cornstarch.

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute.

One note - it's best to make the cornstarch into a smooth paste with a tbsp or two of the water before you add it to the rest of the ingredients or it will clump.

Teriyaki is Japanese and I don't happen to have a Japanese cookbook around the house. You might try this one. http://japanesefood.about.com/od/teriyakisauce/r/teriyakichicken.htm

San-J makes a line of gluten free asian sauces. I think sweet and sour is one of them. I get them at my small town grocery store so you should be able to find them just about anywhere.

      Hi all.  Still feeling the same way this past week. I'm thinking of dropping dairy starting from today, I don't know if I have a problem with it or not, but I drink 2 coffees a day with milk. I'm just constantly tired all the time, and getting trough the day is pretty hard, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my sleep was improving but the last couple of days I have been waking up at least 3 times during the night, then when I get up in the morning it feels like I have been hit by a bus, like I haven't slept at all. I keep waking up during the night needing to drink water as I feel dehydrated, I don't know why as I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday 
    • No actual diagnosis/genetic results.
      About 30% of people have a gene for Celiac.  They don't all have it because only about 1% of the population has Celiac.   It is quite possible she has something else that is causing her trouble.  Sometimes eliminating gluten helps that problem, like FODMAPS.   If it were me, I would keep her strictly gluten-free for a year or so.  See if anything develops.  Then I would try her back on small doses of gluten.  If it is something like FODMAPS, she may be able to tolerate some gluten after a while.  I would do that for 3 months .  If she is having issues I would then get her tested with a full Celiac panel and, if positive, an endoscopy.  Even if the panel is negative, if she is having issues, I would pursue more testing, ends, colonoscopy, etc. For schools to take a gluten-free or any special diet seriously, you will need a doctors note.  I am assuming US might be different in other countries.
    • No actual diagnosis/genetic results.
      Hi- new here but have been reading a lot of posts (Long post, last two paragraphs have actual question)  my four year old daughter probably has celiac but I don't know if I'll ever get a definitive diagnosis at this point.    Backstory: growth Delays, GI issues and a few other symptoms as a baby/young toddler. Did not have blood work done but went straight to biopsy which was negative. Always still had suspicions that gluten bothered her.    Started developing more symptoms around 3, by 3.5 they were pretty bad and her dr recommend eliminating gluten. (Blood in stool, rashes, low grade fever, joint pain, stomach pain and bloating, behavior issues) Everything cleared up quickly! Yay. Still had occasional gluten because I was under the impression it was "just an intolerance" and her symptoms kept up/got worse with each exposure. (Developed vomitting as most recent symptom) So I wanted to know if it was celiac. Can't do blood or biopsy since she's been mostly off gluten for months by this time.  I really was hoping to have a concrete answer and diagnosis, So we did genetic testing recently. It came back positive for half of DQ2 (beta subunit). Her dr isn't giving her official diagnosis but says "she is at a fairly low risk" but with her symptoms doesn't that mean she has developed it??!   Either way he says to keep her off gluten but I don't understand why he won't diagnose? Right now I am just telling people (besides family) that she has it because it's too hard to explain it all but do you think an actual diagnosis would be beneficial in any way? Should I push the issue with her dr? 
    • Awaiting Biopsy Results
      Thanks for the advice and encouragement, Gemini. I appreciate having additional insight into my situation. Celiac being the cause of my health issues makes more and more sense the more I learn about it, and eliminating gluten sounds more and more like the right choice for me.

      The topic of this forum is "Celiac Disease - Publications & Publicity," so certainly it fits in here, and in fact, this topic is designed specifically to handle any media coverage that relates to celiac disease and/or the gluten-free diet.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
