Hello Everyone,

I recently have been on the hunt for gluten free sake. I'm aware that sake is made from rice, however many often add barley at the end of the fermintation process to add flavor. I came across this site, which states which sakes have been found to be gluten free (I know they exist) http://canweeatthat....-free-sake.html - When searching "Gekkeikan Sake" so many came up on this site and they all look like they are made from different companies http://www.shopwiki....eikan-Sake?sb=1

The person who posted the information about the gluten free sake also said that any sakes that say Junmai” are gluten free because they are "pure with no additional ingredients added". Is this true for all of them????? Help!

I would appreciate some insight on the matter and if anyone has a specific name or website I would appreciate it if you could message it to me.

Thanks!

Sake - fermented with rice and Koji enzymes. The Koji enzymes are grown on Miso, which is usually made with barley. The two-product separation from barley, and the manufacturing process should make it safe for celiacs.

...this is all I got! B)

I discovered a Gluten Free Sake that is amazing. The name of the company is TY.KU - They make 4 different types of sake, all gluten free, contain no sulfites or tannens. They also make a citrus liquor and a soju (these are not gluten free). All their liquors contain no sugar; they all are made with real fruit juices and have half the calories of other liquors. All their sakes are top notch and should be served chilled. 76% of sake, specifically sake served hotis considered Futsu (very low grade).

GlutenGirl, Did you have success with the Gekkeikan??

I picked up a bottle today and was really looking forward to it, but decided last minute to check to make sure.. (not checking first has bitten me in the bum before!)

I've never had any problem with junmai, ginjo or daiginjo but these are types of sake in Japan. i can't be sure about  other made in the US brands like Gekkeikan, Shochikubai, momokawa and a few others. 

 

Also namazake   and nigori sake types should be ok..  

 

I can't remember in my 9 years of being celiac and maybe 30 trips to Japan that time, of having problems from  sake and i'm pretty sensitive and cant  have things with the disclaimer  made in a factory  that has wheat etc etc.

 

good luck
