Heh, some of us with low blood pressure have no incentive to stay away from salt. Fortunately, however, you can use low sodium varieties in dishes and it's really not that much salt you end up getting. If I make a stir fry, I might use two tablespoons of soy sauce. At 700mg/tbsp (for San-J's low sodium wheat-free tamari), that's 1400mg in a dish we get six servings out of - 233mg per serving isn't too bad. :) (Really, it's the frequent use of packaged products that really adds up the sodium. Cereals and granola bars seem like they ought to be low sodium, but aren't. (My husband's family has a tendency towards salt-sensitive hypertension; I'm the opposite. :P) )

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.

If you're going to 99 Ranch, you can pick up gluten-free soy sauces there in HUGE bottles for a fraction of the price of the San J stuff. I think it's tastier, too. Reading the labels the first time through might be a pain, but there are quite a few that are made with rice instead of wheat, and if you want dark or sweet soy sauces (for certain recipes -- you wouldn't want to use those in, say, fried rice), those are made with sugar.

99 Ranch is heaven. :)

Mskedi - Thanks for the reply. I don't doubt you're right, but looking through all the bottles with so many of them being non-English was a bit daunting. Can you recommend a specific brand? Maybe a nice LINK to the manufacturer's site with a picture of the bottle? :P

Seriously that last part would be great!

David.

When I wrote the post originally, I wanted to add a picture, but I needed to charge my battery so I was going to do it later. I guess I could have thought of linking it. I blame being tired. :P

Here you go:

This one is pretty all-purpose. I use it as I would any other soy sauce in fried rice, stir fries, korean stews... you name it, it works:

Sometimes I'll use this one along with the white soy sauce for a deeper flavor:
http://www.veryasia....-soy-sauce.html

And then this is what you use to make pad see ew and other semi-sweet stir-fried noodles:
http://www.veryasia.com/104260.html

We used this brand at home years before I went gluten-free (it's what my husband's grandma used in her Thai restaurants), and the day we purged our kitchen of gluten-containing foods we found out we could keep these. It was a pleasant surprise.

Be sure you're only getting these particular ones, though -- this line does carry regular soy sauces with wheat as well.

Love the San-J too, but if you can't find it, then the Bragg's liquid Aminos could make do.

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".



PF Changs? Are ALL PF Changs using gluten free soy sauce? I haven't been able to enjoy chinese food since I was diagnosed and I miss it sooooo much!

ALL have it. For regular customers the soy sauce is NOT gluten-free, but when you make it clear you need gluten-free, no problem.

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

TIA

Not sure you can get this in the states, but in Canada we have VH sauces that are gluten free and have a great soya sauce
