Lachoy Teryaki Sauce

Recommended Posts

We use LaChoy soy sauce consistently and I was pleased to see the Teryaki appeared safe as well. It is made by ConAgra which is a "good label" company. However, after a few glutenings in the last few weeks (after 3 months of NO GLUTENINGS!!! Our longest stretch yet!) this is one new product I know we have introduced that could be a culprit.

Has anyone else here used it and had or not had a reaction?

Anyway, for now we're back to basics on whole, pure foods and nothin' overly processed while she "recovers." I had all but forgotten what the brain fog, ADD-likeness, and fatigue was like it had been so long. Darn. Darn. Darn.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I don't know about that one in particular, because I greatly dislike the taste of LaChoy, but you can make your own teriyaki sauce:

I've used it before, but stopped b/c it didn't seem to agree with my dd. I tried calling the company, but trying to get through to a person was nearly impossible. When I pressed the option for ingredient/allergen questions, I just got a recording that stated they will "clearly list the top 8 allergens...." yada yada yada. I finally gave up, and just haven't used it since. I'll have to try making my own, b/c we love terriyaki sauce!

I recommend using San-J soy sauce (labeled as wheat free on the front - watch out, there are two formulations, one has wheat in it). I have made my own teryaki, which was really good. However, there are brand like Thai kitchen that have awesome Plum Sauce and Sweet Red Chili sauce too!

Thanks. I think my husband has picked up a brand at Vitamin Cottage before, but I'll definitely check out that recipe. I far more enjoy the foods I cook at home than the ones I buy in the store.

La Choy Teriyaki is gluten free.
I thought so. There might be other culprits so I'm going to think about those too (she smooched her brother on the mouth by accident and he is not gluten-free and had just come home from preschool so that could have done it). That in addition to a glutening over the weekend on the same day we used the teryaki sauce. There are other factors though that could have contributed, so before I toss it I'll investigate everything.

Thanks.

La Choy Teriyaki is gluten free.

La Choy is made by Con Agra, which is one of the companies who will list wheat, barley, rye, malt. It frequently is on my shopping list and I don't see any gluten ingredients.

Please also confirm on your own when someone tells you that a product is gluten free. :) Some may have more knowledge than others and some may have a higher tollerance of gluten than others.

It is the same way with us...there are so many contributing factors that can cause my dd's moodiness, but if we start a new product, I always assume it's the new product. Then I have to factor in that she also has ureter reflux, and that can cause her to be irritable. I just never know anymore!!!!

I didn't know ConAgra labeled rye, barley and oats too......last I heard they only labeled wheat. Glad to know I was wrong!

We use the Premier Japan Teriyaki sauce. Will use the LaChoy if desparate. The PJ one is on the spendy side but it's REALLY thick, so I dilute it before I add it to the stir fry (or whatever). It ends up lasting longer than the cheaper brands.

If I'm not mistaken, La Choy lists MSG in the ingredients, which makes it a complete no-no for me, and many others.....since going gluten-free I can't tolerate MSG at all......could that be the problem?

Ya know, I'm at a loss at this point. I don't know for sure that she's had a problem w/ MSG, but who knows when these things can rev up. She's eaten soups before with MSG w/ no problem and other things, too I'm sure.

She said she got glutened today at school and all she ate was what I packed her for lunch which was PB&J on bread from a gluten-free bakery, apple slices, salad w/ gluten-free dressing, and prepackaged gluten-free cookies. She could have picked something up from the lunch table though. Goodness knows those are a wreck.

I just hate that we were perfect for so long and now it's outta control. Whenever this happens I have the urge to feed her nothing but fruit and veggies. <_<

I haven't tried the La Choy Teriaki sauce. Doubt if I will since the La Choy Soy sauce was not to my liking. Before Celiac I considered Kikkomans to be the ultimate quality soy sauce, and La Choy to be the very lowest. The MSG wouldn't bother me (if indeed it has MSG in it), but the taste might, if it's anything like the soy sauce. I tried to check the ingredients on the La Choy website and the Con-Agra website. Niether gives any ingredients or nutritional information. Very poor company in my opinion. What are they hiding? Also, I'd be very interested to know how many different soy sauces they make for other labels. Remember the Con-Agra peanut butter fiasco?

I highly recommend Eden Organic Tamari soy sauce, or San-J soy sauce. They are both very high quality, wheat-free, and list ingredients on their websites. Eden does not offer a Teriaki sauce per se, and San-J's Teriaki sauce contains wheat.

I would seroiusly avoid MSG. It's not so much that she may be intolerant it's more that the nature of MSG is a flovor enhancer that also enhances all other receptors apart from taste. This may include brain nueroceptors and enhance your susceptability to all allergens and irritants that would not be a problem without the MSG. I have not researched extensively but this was a tip from a friend who suffers allergies and developed nurological problems some years ago when MSG was added to everything even fresh meat. He recovered by removing the MSG from his diet and I also have been virtually hayfever free since going MSG free two years ago. I still test posative for the allergens but I hardly ever suffer any symptoms. It was following this path that led me to the Gluten-free Casein-free way of life.

There is MSG in many snack foods but there are many without. There is no need for MSG in foods so try life without. Hope this helps. :)
