Chinese Food--is The White Sauce Ok?

Recommended Posts

We had Chinese food last night, and instead of the brown, soy-based sauce that I know contains gluten, I ordered the "white" sauce, which is a clear sauce that is seasoned lightly with garlic. I thought it would be safe, but perhaps not, since I've been having abdominal cramps/gas aplenty today. Does anyone know if the white sauce is typically gluten-free or not?

Technically it should be gluten-free. Did you tell them to make it gluten-free and use newly cleaned utensils and a clean wok? If not you can get sick. I found this out myself the hard way. I tried my local chinese place a few times without success. I explained everything to them but it never worked out for me. I now stick to PF Changs for gluten-free chinese where they are familiar with safe gluten-free food preparation.

Thanks for helping me solve this puzzle (I'm new at this). No, I did not ask for a clean wok and utensils. Normally I get the same dish steamed with the white sauce on the side and haven't had an issue. But last night they accidently stir-fried it and I ate it thinking the sauce was OK, without even realizing the wok/utensil issue. Argghh!

I hope you feel better soon. It happens to all of us, especially in the beginning.

I am starting to feel better now, thanks. I am going to try PF Changs next time, if I can find one in my area. If not, when it comes to Chinese, it will be steamed food only for me from now on.

Thanks so much for your help!
