California Rolls

10 posts in this topic

One of my favorite foods is a California roll. I usually have them when I have been sick and need something nutritious and light. I know the soy sauce is a big no no but what about the imitation crab? If they aren't safe what would be a good alternative? I am not a big sushi eater so I don't know all the different types of rolls and whether it is considered a no no to substitute.

maybe try using tofu or tuna instead of crab? cream cheese and cucumbers are really good in sushi also..

Fish sushi should be fine as long as they leave out the imitation stuff and the soy sauce (which isn't in most of it anyway)

I'd try salmon or tuna or even whitefish in a california roll.. personally those are the roll I am least likely to eat though.

Amie who could live on sushi

I've been told there are imitation crabs that don't have wheat but I have yet to find them. The marinated eel has soy sauce, as do at least some brands of the orange fish roe. Spciy tuna filling could also have soy sauce depending on the chef. The rest should be fine.

I went to Whole Foods and picked up a package of their Sushi rolls and wheat flour was listed. Trader Joes however, says their veggie rolls are gluten-free but their soy sauce packet isn't. What I want to know is, is the Wasabi paste gluten-free? I want the wasabi with my veggie roll. ( I know, picky, picky). Does anyone have any ideas? Has anyone ordered a veggie or California roll in a Japanese restaurant? I haven't set foot in any Oriental restaurant since going gluten-free 3 months ago. I miss them...

California rolls are fine - if and only if they're made with real crab. (Wild Oats uses real crab, but Trader Joe's uses fake krab.) Most wasabi is fine, but you have to check the label. Heck, most wasabi isn't entirely wasabi, and some of it as no real wasabi in it. I like the kind you mix yourself from a powder, so you can control the consistency. If you're particularly concerned, you can make your own sushi!

Well. I guess I could. Am doing great with stir frys! Maybe I should try to make gluten-free egg rolls and wontons. I wonder if there's already a website that sells that? Maybe I could quit work and become a gluten-free oriental supplier! (Just kidding).

Each time I've checked a wasabi it's been fine. I agree with using the powder amd mixing your own.

I have made california rolls before with real crab meat from the market. I guess when I get a craving I will make it myself. I have the sushi mat. Is it safe to assume the nori is ok?

    • It is meant to show you are a real person not a spammer.  Not sure if it works anymore.  Only Admin can see it and he doesn't do anything with it.
    • MelissaNZ,  Has your daughter been checked for vitamin deficiencies??? Vitamin D deficiency symptoms include urinary incontinence, oral candidiasis (thrush), skin rashes, bumps on the backs of arms, joint pain, distended stomach and short stature.  Bones can't grow much without vitamin D.  Vitamin D deficiency causes delayed gastric emptying (food doesn't move through the gastrointestinal tract at a normal speed and the intestines bloat) which explains your daughter's delayed reaction to the cake.   Vitamin A deficiency is also a cause of bumps on the back of the arms. Vitamin A deficiency causes vision problems. Vitamin A and D are both fat soluble vitamins.  Absorption of fats is a problem for Celiacs.  So is absorption of B vitamins and important minerals. B Complex vitamins are water soluble and must be replenished every day. Skin rashes are associated with several B vitamins like niacin (B3), B12, and thiamine (B1).   I went through a period of severe malnutrition prior to diagnosis.  It was not a pleasant experience.  I had symptoms similar to your daughter's, including the incontinence, which resolved on vitamin D supplementation.   Please, please have your daughter tested for vitamin D deficiency.  And have her B vitamins checked as well.  Celiac Disease causes malabsorption.  Malabsorption causes deficiency diseases.  Newly diagnosed Celiacs need to be checked for deficiencies.   I hope this helps.  
    • I will try to make my long story short, I have been searching my whole life for a diagnosis,  I have seen pretty much every doctor possible I even went through a spinal tap recently because they thought I had multiple sclerosis,  when I was younger I was always throwing up and having stomach problems, a couple hospital visits they thought I had appendicitis, I started having a neurological symptoms as well as  anxiety and depression,  The fatigue was just over bearing,  I was having numbness and tingling and muscle spasms all the time eventually started having seizures,  which kind of cycled through and stop happening after a couple months,  and then it dawned upon me my brother has celiac pretty severely, my grandmother also has celiac, my dad does as well, I don't know why I never thought that it could be my issue, for the last week I have   Been gluten-free and steering clear of cross-contamination,  my dizziness is improved my fatigue is improved as well as rashes I was getting on my arms  and sides,  I have no more muscle jerks or spasms, The problem is I have horrible insurance and I cannot afford testing, so I am at least trying to do it an home blood test,  I know it's not very accurate on telling me if I have celiac or not,   But the thought I may never know for sure if I have it is very daunting.  My family keeps telling me you don't need  to spend thousands of dollars to have a doctor tell you you can't eat something you already know you can't. Just was wondering if anybody else has been in my position and seeing if anybody has a vi just was wondering if anybody else has been in my position and seeing if anybody has advice,  I don't want to be known as one of those people who believe they have something and people with the disease frown upon them it's a very scary thing to think about. 
    • ...ON a side note this is quite easy, you can make your own out of any gluten-free Bread mix, I recently started using a coconut flour blend for this.......Most often people associate caraway with Rye Bread so you just add caraway seeds to the dough and a bit more vinegar to sour it a tad and BAM gluten-free Rye Bread knock off. I think Authentic Foods even has a additive to put in bread mixes to make it taste like Rye Bread....Or you can buy it preamade, I have issues with all the other ingredients but as for one of the best gluten-free Breads out the Canyon House makes a Rye like bread https://canyonglutenfree.com/buy-gluten-free-bread-products/Gluten-Free-Rye-Deli-Sandwich-Bread.html
