Particularly one that might be available locally (Safeway, QFC, etc.)?

San-J Organic Tamari Wheat Free is gluten free and excellent. I don't know how easy it will be to find at Safeway though. La Choy isn't as good, but it is also gluten free and easy to find.

San J is the best I found. If not at safeway then any health food store should have it. Its marked wheat Free Tamari but not all tamari is wheat free so you have to read labels carefully unless you can find san J

My local health food store was serving samples of sushi using Bragg Liquid Aminos instead of soy sauce. It's excellent.

1970s-told had colitis or nervous stomach-was given phenobarbital, felt great but still had symptoms
Me, dd and ds diagnosed with Lactose Intolerance
2000-osteopenia
2001-had stroke because of medications I was given
June 2003-saw Chiropractor who specialized in nutrition: Celiac Disease not Lactose Intolerance, went gluten free with once in awhile cheating, off soy and dairy for about 6 months
June 2003-found excellent doctor for fibromyalgia (who has found out she has Celiac Disease)
May 2006-went gluten free with NO cheating-excellent! Made all the difference in the world

I like Braggs too - love that apple vinegar in salads too. She has a farm about 10 miles from here.

Seattle has a huge Asian population, so I figured I'd be able to find the San J. Went to the local Ranch 99 (a chain of large, Asian supermarkets http://www.99ranch.com/ ) they must have had 400 kinds of soy sauce, but of course, they were Sans San J! :rolleyes: But I did find a bottle. At Safeway! Can't wait to try it, haven't had any soy sauce in about 3 months.

Enjoy.
Although San J is for San Jurushi Company in Mie-Ken Japan, it's made in Kentucky I think.
I can't even find it in Japan!
take care and good luck

I love SanJ--it's what they use at my local PF Changs. At one visit there, the chef came out and gave me a brand new bottle of it to take home :D

Glad you were able to find it, David.

Ken--my bottle says "brewed in Richmond, Virginia".

I know that Uwajimaya has it. Not the low sodium version, at the Bellevue one, but I haven't tried Seattle or Renton recently. (Not sure if they have one up north for ya! ;) )

You can get San-J at any health food store such as Whole Foods. Safeway, Fred Meyer, QFC, they all carry it too.

San-J is the only certified gluten free soy sauce made in the US. We love it!

Thanks for this info! Do you know if it's available in Canada as well?

I might be going grocery shopping at Safeway or Save on Foods and I was told Save on Foods as more gluten free choices by my friend who does the shopping for her celiac boyfriend.

I had some soy sauce today and saw the big WHEAT in the ingredients list and went ahead anyways because I figured it was a small amount. I still got some stomach pain, but that's the only wheat I've had today :)

I use both San-J and Braggs, Braggs is a little less salty to me. San-J has other gluten free sauces, like peanut and a sweet and tangy both are real good.
