Sweet & Sour Sauce

I'm looking to buy some sweet & sour sauce. I really want some Chinese food and I'm going to try making my own, but I drench everything in sweet & sour sacue. I never bought any before-I always went out to eat for Chinese-so I have no idea if it typically contains gluten or not. What are some companies/brands that make gluten free sweet & sour sauce?

You could also try to make your own, not so hard. Get a jar of gluten-free jelly that you like and add vinegar. you can alter the taste with more sugar and vinegar or even chop up a pineapple in it. If you have a juicer, you can juice your own pineapple, add vinegar and sugar and thinken with corn or potato starch.

it's worth the time to get a much better taste without the chemicals and it will keep in the fridge for sometime.

I have a home based business where one of the products I make is essentially a sweet and sour sauce with a kick. Check out my profile for my website.

Is there a P.F. Chang's restaurant in your area? They do gluten-free Chinese food.

I just found them in Fresno, Ca. I'm going next week. Very excited about it. The bad part is there 1 1/2 hours away. so I wont be going too often. So, I'm back to my original problem, my cravings of Chinese foods. I think if could find a good sweet and sour sauce and teriaki sauce I would be ok. :D

From my Chinese cookbook:

Sweet and sour sauce

1 cup water

1/2 c. distilled white vinegar

1/2 c. sugar

1/4 c. tomato paste

4 tsp. cornstarch.

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute.

One note - it's best to make the cornstarch into a smooth paste with a tbsp or two of the water before you add it to the rest of the ingredients or it will clump.

Teriyaki is Japanese and I don't happen to have a Japanese cookbook around the house. You might try this one. http://japanesefood.about.com/od/teriyakisauce/r/teriyakichicken.htm

San-J makes a line of gluten free asian sauces. I think sweet and sour is one of them. I get them at my small town grocery store so you should be able to find them just about anywhere.

    • It's not the Teflon that is the problem. It is the tiny amounts of gluten that are hidden in the cracks of previously used cookware. Personally, (and I have had this confirmed by the UCLA celiac center), it is not necessary to purchase new cook ware when going gluten free. Once you have cleaned the cookware well and cooked on it a couple of times with gluten free food, all of the gluten will be gone. What IS necessary is to not continue to cook gluten containing items in those pots and pans. Now that you have your new pots and pans (and hopefully a gluten-free colander and a toaster), label them all gluten-free or not). Don't cook any gluten containing foods in your new pots and pans and you should be good to go.
    • Short answer to this:  Has anyone else been through the denial phase and emotional upset upon realizing the life changes that have to happen just to feel better when eating? All of us!!!!!! It's mourning & it's normal. Breaking down in the grocery store & sobbing? Yep. Normal & I think we've all done it at least once if not multiple times. I would love to say more but dinner is calling me to go make it so I have to run for now. HUGS!
    • I found out roughly 3 -4 months ago by accident that I am gluten sensitive.  One day I woke up and had joint pain in just about every joint on my left side. ie, elbow, wrist, knuckles, hip, knee, ankle and feet.  I was already having issues with intense foot pain that I mistook for plantar fasciitis.  Once I googled the symptoms, and realized ALL of several other things were happening at the same time as a result of gluten as well, I knew the answer.  I had been bloating in my belly for decades, and also having migraines for years,  but as of this year, I was looking VERY pregnant after each gluten episode. This was highly upsetting.   I am 52, and fairly active otherwise.  I had Migraines, depression, anxiety and now joint pain and peripheral neuropathy.  I'm on anxiety meds, and have hypothyroidism and diabetes 2.   Getting to the bottom of the problems with my symptoms finally, has been exhilarating and exhausting at the same time.  I cannot test for Celiac because my insurance won't pay for this since I am not anemic and have no family history of Celiac.  Since I have been eating gluten-free, I have been feeling better, besides the mistakes that produce symptoms within 30 min-an hour. When I make a mistake, my symptoms come on faster and faster, and also more intense.  For example, I ate at a restaurant thinking I was okay, and by the time I got home and exited the vehicle I looked 7 months Prego, and my feet felt like I was walking on razor blades. The last week or two has been the best for not making mistakes, and finally I can eat without feeling horrible. Here's the thing:  I still can't wrap my head around this!  I comb through the forum for answers and have learned so much!  I have an extremely supportive boyfriend.  I just am in so much denial about this.  It's emotional for me and some days I just can't handle it.  I know many people with full blown Celiac's disease have it way worse than I do, I just can't deal with this very easily.  Has anyone else been through the denial phase and emotional upset upon realizing the life changes that have to happen just to feel better when eating?  What did you do about it?
    • The basic idea is that you don't want to use something that might have gluten in/on it.  Pots and pans are easy to wash and get clean - a colander is not - all those little holes full of pasta goo.  A toaster with crumbs.  
    • Newbie mom of 15 yr old DD diagnosed 3 weeks ago. Just purchased brand new Farbwrware, nonstick items. Are these safe to use for her needs? Is it just scratched or oldish Teflon that's not suitable or all Teflon? These will only be used for gluten-free cooking. Trying to learn e as we go.
