Rice Vinegar And Sesame Oil

Recommended Posts

Hi, I"m trying to alter a recipe for a dipping sauce that calls for rice vinegar, soy sauce adn sesame oil. I know i can exchange the soy sauce for gluten free soy sauce, but I'm not sure about rice vinegar and sesame oil. anyone know of brands that are gluten free?

I was told that sushi is unsafe because of the vinegar they put on the rice to make it taste better! I haven't eaten sushi since becoming gluten-intolerant, so I don't even know if it's the same as what I'm asking about.

anyone have any clues??? help! I'm having a party tomorrow and need to go grocery shopping!

I use plain rice vinegar all the time. The choose a rice vinegar with only rice and water. I usually use Marukan Genuine Brewed Rice Vinegar Light and Mild brand.

Sesame Oil is gluten free. You will still need to read the lable to determine if a specific brand is gluten free because of possible additional ingredients.

The roasted sesame oil should be fine as well as the plain sesame oil, as mentioned, read the label to see if any additional ingredients are added. The previous poster coverd plain rice vinegar, most if not all brands should be gluten-free. I use Marukan Seasoned rice vinegar, it has salt and sugar added, which is what is added to plain rice vinegar to make sushi rice. traditionally that's all that should be in sushi rice but I've heard that some places add other ingredients or might use a vinegar that has other additives, so ask.

There is a White Bread Recipe that I am wanting to make but it requires Rice Vinegar. From what I recall (please correct me) if using vinegar make sure it is distilled.

I was at the grocery store over the weekend looking for rice vinegar and I saw the brand mentioned above plus some others, but they said ... Rice Vinegar or Vinegar (rice and water) but they do not say distilled. How do I know they are safe?

Thank you

In the US (and in Canada), the only vinegar to be concerned about is malt vinegar. All vinegar except malt is distilled. If the source is wheat, it must be disclosed.
