Walmart (great Value) Soy Sauce?
0

14 posts in this topic

Has anyone else tried to Wal-Mart Great Value Soy Sauce? It says gluten free on the label, so I bought some last week. Now I am wondering if it really is gluten free.

I made fried rice and lo mein last night and used the Great Value Gluten Free Soy Sauce. Last night I started to feel SICK. Today I can hardly handle the stomach cramps, diarrhea and just general pain. I have been gluten free since 8/17/06 and I think this is the first time I have been glutened. Everything else I used last night I have used before with no ill effect. So I am thinking it had to be the soy sauce. Anyone else used it and noticed a problem? Or is it just me?

I only have a second and will try to post again later, but....whenever I get into gluten or have a reaction to something I eat I take digestive enzymes from a company out of Houston called Transformation Enzymes. They work wonderful and decrease my symptoms to nothing! I have a contact of a Dr. that will work with celiacs over the phone if you would like more information on them. I wish I had more time but my grandchildren are here, as we have a new grandbaby. I really think every celiac/gluten sensitive person would be helped by being on really good digestive enzymes no matter where they come from (if they are good that is). Also, probiotic! The minute I begin to feel those old symptoms coming on out my bottles come and out the window go the symptoms! Must run...

It could also be the soy itself . . . have you been eating much soy recently? Perhaps the increased amount in the sauce "got you". Or . . . you might just have a bug. It is that time of year. . . Or it could be the gv soy sauce . . . hope someone else will chime in with more helpful info.

Thank you, I never thought about the amount of soy. This is the first time I have had any soy sauce since going gluten free. Altough I didn't use a lot, it may just be my body couldn't tolerate the small amount I did get.

Thank you all so much for your suggestions.

Just made a Thai Pork Noodle Bowl with our "cool new find" the great value soy sauce. This is the worst reaction I've had in a while. I eat soy ALL the time, so I can vouch, at least for me, that it is not that.

Perhaps we should contact Great Value.... I'm very disappointed as I have never had trouble with GV brand before either --- although they label things that should be gluten-free anyway...

OK so I've been thinking about your problem for a while now. I have not used wall mart brands soy sauce yet, but I've used other kinds. I've had the same problems with anything soy if i drink milk or have something dairy after or before. A like horrible gurgling sound coming from your abdomen kind:) Think back to everything you had the day you had it try again and check what you eat and see what your results are, you now what I mean.Good luck!

I appreciate the advice and thought. :D

I'm a dietitian and I keep a food record, every day, of exactly what I eat (anal I know). But it comes in handy in times like these.

I tolerate wheat-free tamari (had some about a week ago in fact) without issues at all. Soy-based and corn-based products are the staples of my diet.

Nothing I ate that day was anything I had not had before, on a regular (daily) basis - and 90% of it was from a package or something that had already been open, so that means the batch did not contain gluten.

I reacted within an hour of eating the soy sauce - that's typical for me.

That said, I have found 3 other posts dating back to 2005 that had issues with wal-mart brand soy sauce. It's fishy, to say the least. I'm waiting to see what Corporate Wally has to say.

I've cooked with the GV brand of soy sauce and I've never had a problem with it. I've been using it for about a year now.

When I first went gluten free it was several months (close to a year) before I could tolerate soy or dairy products.

Thanks again for the input, it's good to know other Celiacs are using it.

I do tolerate soy, contrary to popular belief on this forum. :P

I'm curious as to the ppm in the soy sauce now... I suppose this has become my pet project for a few days.

Anyone else have experience with it?

Hello Everyone,

I am another person who noticed a reaction to this product. Before I say anything, I should mention: I'm currently in the phase of trying to figure out what I have through a diet record. I am not necessarily gluten intolerant, although I have reason to suspect whey.

I had had no milk that day, and I have had soy before and since without issue.

My reaction to it was as follows:

- Extreme exhaustion

- Nausea

- Flushing

- Uneasy feeling

- Possible heart burn

- 20 beat per minute increase in heat rate over normal (70 to 90)

- Nasal congestion

It has caramel color. I have heard some say that that should be fine for gluten (according to the product label, it does say gluten-free), but also heard it can contain milk as a result of that. Who knows whether that is valid or not. The other natural question is MSG.

    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some. 
    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there. 
    • Called my GI doctor today to make sure he is going to look at my small intestine and do biopsy for Celiac for my EGD and he is. Thanks for the tip everyone about have to start eating gluten again. The office told me to break my gluten free diet and start eating gluten everyday until my EGD. Here's to being miserable again for a few weeks 🍻🍞😩
    • I can completely relate! The horrible mental effects that I have been living with for years is the absolute worst side effect of eating gluten, HANDS DOWN. Worse than the endless tummy aches, worse than the constant diarrhea, worse than the week long migraines, worse than the daily fatigue and body pain.... I honestly though there was something seriously wrong with me and hated my life because of how I felt mentally. I always felt like I was drowning, not in control of my thoughts, trapped in some unexplained misery. My head was always so cloudy, and I was mad because I always felt so slow and stupid. I would feel so lethargic and sad and empty while at the same time be raging inside, wanting to rip out of my own skin. I was mean, terrible, would snap at the people closest to me for no good reason and just felt like I hated everyone and everything. Think of how crappy you feel when you have a terrible cold and flu - I felt that crappy, but mentally. Some days were really bad, some were mild. I always thought it was because I was getting a migraine, or because I had a migraine, or because I had just overcome a migraine, because I didn't sleep well, because....always a random reason to justify why we have all these weird unrelated symptoms before we get diagnosed. I'm happy to say that I have been gluten-free for about 2 months now and though I am not symptom free, the first thing that improved was my mood. I no longer feel foggy and miserable. For the first time in years, my head is clear, I can actually think, and I feel positive and like I am in control of what's going on in my head. I don't hate the world. I don't spend every day bawled up on the corner of the couch depressed and angry. The release of these horrible symptoms is enough to never make me want to cheat, no matter what I have to miss out on. So insane how a little minuscule amount of a stupid protein can wreck such havoc. 
    • I wanted to collect some of the info on NCGI in one place so that visitors who test negative but may still have an issue with gluten can be directed there.
