    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

Recommended Posts

I've only tried making sushi once and that was prior to celiac disease. I would love to try it to make sushi at home but I've got a couple of questions.

I live in an area that doesn't have many choices for sushi making. I wasn't able to find real Wasabi but I found S & B Prepared in tube. Does anyone know if this is gluten free? I've tried to contact S & B and I got an error.

The grocery store had sushi rice but is produced on shared lines with gluten. I did notice a gluten free brand that has short grain rice.

I also picked up KAME Japanese Rice Vinegar, Eden Nori, & Yamamotoyama Toasted Seaweed.

Any ideas would be very helpful!! :)

I didn't realize Lundberg Farms had sushi rice!

I found a recipe online for homemade pickled ginger that uses rice vinegar. The sushi resturant I used to frequent made a chilli dipping sauce that was out of this world. I my try to use that instead of the wasabi...

I got a Sushi book and video for Christmas and I want to start practicing. :D

Thanks!

yes they do! I love making sushi, it's a lot of fun... I am scared of raw fish at home though, so I stick to vegetarian sushi at home! LOL...

I haven't found a Wasabi that has been verified gluten-free, but I also haven't looked very hard... I made pickled ginger once, and I learned that you need to use very young roots for it, not the big stringy ones! Tender baby ginger roots...

my fave combination is avocado, cucumber and cream cheese with the sushi rice in a nori roll, I also use the San J low sodium wheat free tamari, I think the low sodium one tastes so much better than the regular one.

I use a wasabi powder....very easy to use, just add water to make it a paste. But, I will have to check my email - when I asked them if they were gluten-free, I got some weird response.....Will let you know. I stopped using them anyway b/c that was around the time when I was sick and couldn't find the source. I since found the source but never added the wasabi back. Sushi can be very good without wasabi too - I use Bragg's liquid aminos and the saltiness takes care of any need for wasabi for me.

The Kame vinegar is gluten-free, I have emailed them 2x and called 1x to be sure. When I called though, the lady was a bit off...she told me all of Kame's sauces are gluten-free (not true if you look at some labels) and told me that they couldn't list any products as being gluten-free since they are made in the same facility as wheat stuffs. I use it anyway and haven't had problems (I'm super sensitive, but then again, that might not mean anything).

This sounds wonderful, I can't wait to try it! On the veggie side...I like plain cucumber rolls but this sounds so much better. I thought maybe I could get real canned crab and give it a try. I've never had canned crab so I'm not sure how great it would be. :unsure: I also thought about doing a shrimp roll from shrimp tempura (made with gluten-free pancake batter.)

Now that you mention it I remember seeing powder wasabi at an other grocery store. Yeh, I would love to know if it's gluten-free if you can find the e-mail. I don't mind to skip the wasabi but my dh has gone gluten-free for my dd and I and he LOVES & misses sushi. I thought it might me special for me to fix it for him as well.

Thanks again everyone! :)

Its Hime brand Powdered sushi wasabi, distributed by JFC International Inc in San Francisco. Here's there email response (What confused me was the 'ko' on the end of the name, I wasn't sure that they were talking about what I was talking about, maybe I should write again just to be safe).

appreciate your interest that prompted you to contact us.

Our Hime brand Japanese Horseradish Powder (Wasabi-ko) is gluten free.

On the wierder side, there is a Hawaiian snack called Musubi which has been stolen from the japanese and modified. Its like making big Maki rolls, but you do it while the rice is warm and the filling is spam or chicken which has been fried in soy sauce. Toss a little toasted sesame seeds in there, roll, and enjoy warm or cold.

Its the best thing on the planet. Everyone I descrbe it to says eeewww weird, and then I make it for them, and they eat all of it, and request it when they come over.

I thought about doing a smoke salmon and cream cheese roll. The resturant I used to go to offered a soft shell crab roll. :)

ooh, I'm glad you brought this up. I have been avoiding the wasabi, but now maybe I'll check out the Hime stuff. Btw, Hime has THE BEST brown rice ever. I normally don't care for it, but theirs is so darned good. :D

Kaseysmom, I didn't realize you ate soy. Don't know why....Enjoy the tamari for me :P
