Gluten Free Sake
0

8 posts in this topic

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.typepad.com/blog/2011/04/gluten-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.com/l/Gekkeikan-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

I recently found a great website that talks about gluten-free Sake in details. 

 

http://sake-talk.com/is-sake-gluten-free/

 

They say premium Sake is 100% gluten-free whereas non-premium cheap Sake is not necessarily.

Just check the bottle label, and if it says one of the following premium types the Sake is gluten-free.

And they have an infographic which helps me easily understand about Sake.

 

Daiginjo, Junmai Daiginjo, Ginjo, Junmai Ginjo, Junmai, Tokubetsu Junmai, Honjozo and Tokubetsu Honjozo

 

I'm in Australia, so not sure about the American Sake brands, but I have never had any problems with Go-shu. they offer premium types. Hope it helps:)

I just made a post, but according to SAKETALK, Koji enzymes are not grown on Miso. Miso is made from Koji enzymes which are grown on either rice, barley or soybeans. So Koji is just one of the ingredients of Miso which is the final product.. 

Koji used for Sake is legally required to be rice Koji. So no barley or soy is used for Sake in the first place!

    • I havent used it, not much of a baker tbh, but this one looks good: http://alittleinsanity.com/gluten-free-pie-crust-recipe/
    • As you say, there's no test, it's diagnosed by exclusion, so there's no metrics to check to assess compliance other than anecdotal response to symptoms. Conversely, I've not seen anything that says that NCGI can resolved or be cured either.  This paper gives a good summation.  Basically, there's not much research period! That is changing though, I think there's research underway which could help give answers.
    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
