Japanese Curry Roux Will Go gluten-free!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

DH discovered today that one brand of Japanese curry roux will go gluten-free. Increasingly there are Japanese children's foods that are being made gluten-free. One of them is the Curry no Ojisama brand curry roux. It has always come in a small blue box and the new gluten-free version is supposed to be in red packaging. It is smaller in portion and more mild than it's grown up counterparts but will be nice to have back all the same. Who knows if or when it will make it to the states(currently the blue box is available here) but I'll be keeping an eye out for it.

EDIT:Please read my response to Ken's post before purchasing this product. I have not provided a complete translation of the allergen information. It is an exciting discovery but requires further, careful investigation.

Thanks for the info, I miss the quick S&B, Vermont and House curries I would make when rushed.

I'll be back in Japan in March and if you remind me, I'll bring a bunch back with me in April.

last March in Japan I went to a seminar on the increase in wheat allergies in Japanese school age children and was hoping the food industry would respond like this!

It's great news for me!

thanks again!

This is the link to the S&B page of allergen free products. They do have an English homepage but it doesn't include the page on allergen-free products.

DH was on looking to see if he could find out if the curry powder is gluten-free. In my excitement I was hasty in posting :( and have gone back to recheck. Many on that page are wheat-free and interestingly they are using sorghum, but we have e-mailed the company to ask further questions about carmel color and gluten just to be sure. I'll let you know what we find out.

There are a number of sorghum based soy sauces I brought back last year but never could find a boxed curry without some form of gluten.

Seems like they may have something now.

Will look again in March when I'm at this FoodEx show in Chiba.

Just an update.

DH found the cream stew mix(but not curry) on recent trips to both LA and Chicago. It's the one in the tall red box in the fourth section down on the site that I linked to on a previous post. The only ingredient I wonder about is the MSG but I've been eating it :o with no problem! It has four sticks of powder, like the ones dashi comes in. It's made for kids so is very mild in flavor and doesn't thicken up as much as the roux cubes we're used to. I added some salt and pepper. I'm enjoying it more out of nostalgia than anything.

Thanks for the update,

Just checked on Wednesday. We don't have it here but I'll be in Japan next month and look there for it as well as a ton of other stuff. Last year i shipped back 9 boxes of goodies!

From the allergen page:

※本品は小麦を含む製品と共通の設備で製造しています。

- This item is manufactured from a product including wheat and common equipment.

They removed the wheat flour but it's NOT gluten free

Thanks for the clarification. You're referring to the one furthest down on the page in the red box that is roux cubes(which is the one I originally posted about).

@Alaskaguy With regard to the timing, I think that everyone is a bit different! I used to have a shorter time to onset when I was first diagnosed (within 24h). As time has gone on, and I've glutened myself less and less, I have noticed that the time gets a bit longer.  Recent history seems to matter a bit too - if I've been glutened recently and then get glutened again, the rash will show up faster on the second round. For example, in the last 3 weeks I got slightly glutened by inadvertent
