Organic Tamari (wheat Free Soy Sauce) By San-j

Recommended Posts


I have been using Organic Tamari (Wheat Fee Soy Sauce) by San-J as a replacement for soy sauce. You can get this tamari sauce almost everywhere. The parent of San-J is a japanese company. According to the ingredients listed, Organic Alcohol is used to preserve freshness.

But I have read that foreign countries do not have to list ingredients if said ingredients are less than 2% of the whole. Also, the product does not say gluten free, but only wheat free.

Is it possible that this product contains gluten? I sure hope not, since I've been using it right along.

Thanks in advance!

La Choy Soy Sauce is also gluten free. But, Wheat free Tamari is soo much better.

I have my Tamari Soy Sauce made by "LifeSource" right here. It is the oriental ginger flavour and says "Gluten Free - Wheat Free - Fat Free - No Preservatives Added" right on the front..... The ingredients read: "Filtered water, soy protein extract, sea salt, apple cider vinegar, ginger, fructose, blackstap molasses"......
