My husband is a chef and is preparing gluten-free meals for both of us, even though I am the one with the disease-what a blessing! He prefers to use Kikkoman, but we are having a hard time finding/ordering a case of it, if it even exists, that is gluten free. Help!

Not sure about Kikkoman, but I know San-J makes a gluten-free tamari. You might try contacting the company, and see what they say.

No, they only have soy sauces that contain wheat. La Choy soy sauce is gluten free. Last time I checked Kroger soy sauce is gluten free too.

Kikkoman claims their Soy Sauce is gluten free even though it contains wheat. They say that the process breaks down all the gluten. I have heard of very sensitive Celiacs that do fine with soy sauce, and moderately sensitive celiacs who have trouble with it. Personally, I haven't tried it since going gluten-free. It's not worth the risk for me. It probably depends on how readily your individual system will recognize the gluten particles even if they're torn apart. The tests apparently don't pick up gluten in it.

I have found that San-J wheat-free Tamari sauce is much yummier than Kikkoman anyway. Even if there were suddenly a cure for Celiac, I'd never go back to Kikkoman after using the San-J. Have your husband give it a try. La Choy and Kroger work, but they don't taste as good, IMO. We buy the San-J to use in all the cooking, and Kroger for the kids because they tend to use up a lot of soy sauce and the San-J is kind of spendy. Also, the Kroger comes in a bottle that's nicer for the table because it doesn't pour out as fast as the San-J bottle. The kids aren't as picky about their soy sauce; I think they mainly are in it for the salt.

Wal Mart brand is also gluten-free. I would not use Kikoman , it was my favorite years ago. It is not worth the risk . I don't think KM tests for gluten to see what the ppm is.

These products are different in other countries. Processing for some things in Canada can be okay there but not in the US & vice versa..

Even if you could find a gluten-free Kikkoman, it wouldn't tasted like the version with wheat. The wheat does make a taste difference.
