Soy Sauce Flavor Alternative Suggestions?
0

18 posts in this topic

I can't have soy at the moment, but miss the flavor of gluten-free soy sauce for stir fry.

I added a couple of shredded anchovies today, which was quite good, but wondered if anyone has a favorite alternative?

Thanks :)

Thanks love2 :) I reckon I can do that if I can get my head round the balsamic?

So IH, do you reckon 2 tsp molasses is pushing it for whole 30?

I love the whole substitution thing, it cracks me up reading all the different variants we end up using

Can you not have balsamic or do you not like it? Maybe I'm missing something... :huh:

I read somewhere that cheaper balsamic may not be gluten-free, but I can't find where. Our labeling is slightly different in the UK and I sometimes get confused.

I am very happy to be told I can crack into the balsamic from a gluten-free point of view. I need to check if it is also whole30 compliant.

This all gets complicated some days :)

Ah...I see. I have not yet seen any vinegars that contain gluten other than malt, of course. And I had also forgotten about the whole30 thinger.

You're right. It CAN be complicated. :blink:

...and if you can only find the cheapie stuff, just reduce it by half in pan and add a touch of brown sugar. Voila - better balsamic. This recipe would not be the place to use 50-year-old gold label aceto balsamico tradizionale de Modena! :lol:

Balsamic is okay, gluten free. (I have never seen a vinegar except malt vinegar that was a danger to us) but I am sure someone on here will argue loudly with me about that. :)

Molasses is pure cane sugar, but if you want to use it, I won't tell a living soul. -_-

cmw, an alternative which I think is much better and I add to stir frys and bolognese sauce is called Hendersons relish. The company is uk based tho but it is soy and gluten free and tastes

delicious! :) It actually makes me look like I can cook when I use it :)

It looks like soy sauce and has the same consistency.

I take some salt, pepper, and brown sugar and add some homemade beef stalk to it. I found that that is kinda similar. Then i simmer it (actually, this is the base to my beef soup most of the time :lol: ). I've done it in smaller batches with some success. I have no mesurments, just what looks right.

Hi Mindwarp,

 

I bought coconut aminos which looks and tastes like soy. I found it when I was looking for coconut sugar which is supposedly low glycemic (I'm pre diabetic). It tastes pretty good and is made from fermented coconut sap. Hopefully you're not allergic to coconut.

 

There's also another thing called "black bean soy sauce" but it's more difficult to find. I couldn't find it online and have to trek to an asian grocery store to find it. It's worth having a bottle if you like stir frys. They use rice flour to thicken it, so it gives your stir frys a nice glaze if you use it.

Thank you! I have had the coconut aminos recommended, must try :)

Black bean is a great idea, and widely available in the uk. I love it. I stir fry most days!

" I stir fry most days!"

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
