I went out to sushi last night and got some rolls that contained a couple kinds of meat (none fried at my request) some avacado and cucumber and carrots with seseme sauce, wasabe and ginger (no soy sauce). They were very happy to accomodate me and claimed to check all of the other ingredients. I took it to go, ate a huge amount of rolls (for me) and then had some cranberry juice and went to bed. I woke up this morning with terrible glutening. I don't get it. I've gone there before and gotten other things without this problem. I avoid everything even seemingly harmful like the crunchy rolls even though I know they're just puffed rice. I get to eat out so infrequently that it's really disheartening when this happens. Now I have a huge amount of research due this afternoon and I'm bloated, in incredible pain and fuzzy headed. Does anybody know what did it?

Soy Sauce did it.

I've finally gotten to where I carry gluten-free Tamari with me where ever I go. I have also successfully had sushi with them using my tamari. For Xmas, I got the family gluten-free Tamari in those little packets too.

I travel a bunch for work and sushi is almost always a safe bet - short of the soy sauce.

Were you at the bar? Did you watch them make it? I would say it's possible that something was on the board, or on their fingers, OR like said before, it was the soy sauce.

:( My hubby's sad that I'm not brave enough to go for sushi since being dx'd.

What was in the sesame sauce? This sounds suspect to me as it could contain soy sauce.

I know you didn't get the crunchy rolls but in my experience, they are using tempura batter for those, which includes wheat flour and potato starch or another starch(not made from rice, that I have ever heard of). Just FYI. Did the rolls contain fake crab meat? This can include wheat but may people are not aware of it(people who don't have celiac disease).

The Triumph Dining cards I ordered came in the mail just after I posted. On the card for Japanese cuisine it lists MSG in the I cannot eat section and wasabi in the please check section. Also in the please check section is packaged roe, which is sometimes used in sushi. MSG is OK if produced in the U.S., according to these cards.

Over here in New Zealand they put a type of vinegar and seasoning in the rice to make it hold together and or to give it a bit of flavour. Could be that.

And yes surimi, or fake crab meat has gluten, and I miss that.

From what I have seen of the seaweed it is usually just 100% seaweed.

Hope you are feeling better.

As has been mentioned, imitation crab meat is a common source of gluten in sushi restaurants.

Additionally, did any of the rolls have a sauce in them? (Not the soy sauce on the side, but a sauce in with the meat/veggies.) If so, it likely had soy sauce or another sauce which contained wheat.

Another option is that the wasabi contained wheat. This isn't really really common, but it can occur that some powdered wasabis that are used contain wheat and they could have used one of those.

(The rice vinegar and mirin (rice wine) used in making the sushi rice sweet and sticky is *not* a concern from a gluten point of view.)
