It is gluten-free, though for things that you haven't checked on, calling on the caramel color is a good idea.

La Choy, however, in my OH so HUMBLE opinion :lol: sucks. Some people like it, but I don't. I highly encourage you to try finding San-J's wheat free tamari. And having Bragg's on hand is a good idea for the times when you want something like the flavor of soy sauce, but much lighter.

I just want to say I'm a huge gluten reactor and every time I used La Choy I reacted. I have switched to San-J Wheat-Free Organic Tamari Soy Sauce and I've not had a single problem. I'm not saying that La Choy has gluten I'm just saying SOMETHING in it bothers me.

La Choy Soy Sauce is made by ConAgra foods. I called them about it a few days ago and was told that their labeling policy is if it has any gluten ingredients (wheat, rye or barley) they will be listed as that ingredient or in the case of things like natural flavors it would be in parenthesis - for example natural flavors (derived from WHEAT). They, like Kraft, go above and beyond the labeling laws. I can't speak for the taste since I haven't tried it yet, but I will say that I will support companies with policies like these with my hard earned dollars.

If you react to the soy sauce, you're definitely reacting to something in it, but it's pretty safe to say that it's not gluten.

La Choy is most definitely gluten-free and always has been. Wheat is the ingredient that most soy sauces have and in the U.S. it HAS to be listed. In fact, it was always listed even before the allergen law.

As for caramel color, the alleged danger there is wheat (I've never found caramel color with wheat), not barley, rye or oats. Again, in the U.S. it would have to be listed.

Hi, Just wanted to add that while La Choy Soy sauce may be gluten free, the "hydrolyzed soy protein" is derivative of msg and that may be what some people react to.

Where can I get San-J's? Regular grocery store or do I need to make a trip to the health food store? We have been using La Choy's but I don't like the way it tastes.

I bought San-J at a regular grocery store (specifically Giant Foods here in the East). A health food store would probably have it, too.

You may also want to look to see if they have the new gluten-free Kikkoman Soy Sauce. Kikkoman used to be my favorite before I went gluten-free.

And the great thing about the Bragg is that sodium per serving is only about 110 mg. MUCH, MUCH less than even the reduced sodium soy sauce or San-J.

If my calculations are correct, Bragg actually has more sodium. Assuming you are making a stir fry and use the same amount of either San-J low sodium or the Braggs Aminos. Maybe you use less Braggs? & add water for liquid (sauce)? A recipe I had said to use 1 tbsp of Braggs but I didn't have it & used 1 tbsp of San-J.

Braggs is 160 mg sodium per 1/2 tsp

San-J is 700 mg per tablespoon

3 teaspoons per tablespoons or 6 1/2 per tblsp.

6x 160 = 960 per tablespoon for Braggs

I wasn't reading serving size carefully, although the Bragg I have says 110 mg, not 160.

I got the 160 mg off the website. Might be some different versions. Or another example of the website & the product not matching up. The first rule of Celiac:

Read & go by the labels. :)

We called la Choy, they wanted the UPC code and said it is NOT gluten free.

 

My husband found 'Kikkoman Gluten Free' at Albertson's.

These kinds of posts annoy me so much!! "We just called La Choy and said it was not gluten free". Why do you do things like that to mislead others??? If you don't know what you're talking about, why post anything at all?? I just got off the phone with La Choy. I spoke to a woman about my La Choy All Purpose Soy Sauce. We have no idea what product you were talking about, but THIS soy sauce does NOT contain any gluten. Furthermore, they test the lines after making anything that DOES contain gluten, before they move on to making another product. Their label will STATE if the product contains wheat, rye, or barley! This product does NOT contain gluten. It is not labeled "gluten free" because of our stupid govt regulations, but she did tell me they were "moving in that direction". If you only eat things labeled "gluten free", then don't eat it! But don't tell everyone it's not gluten free when it is. I have been using it for years, as have many other people, with no issues. Please don't come on here and make blanket statements that aren't even factual.

Everyone here is very sure La Choy Soy Sauce has no gluten. Yeah, the label has all non-gluten ingredients, but I know how I react to gluten and I'm going to say they are flat out lying. I wish there was a way to test the product to see if it really doesn't have any gluten in it. If you believe the FDA in the USA is always perfect, well I doubt it. I'm calling them out, BS on this. I think they left flour off the ingredient list so people like us would buy it. Flour is a common ingredient in soy sauce. I know how I react, and I reacted strongly to this product. It has gluten and they are lying about it.

I would suggest a certified gluten free soy sauce, just to be safe.  Test that and if you react, you'll be able to rule out a gluten reaction from La Choy.

Actually "flour" is not a common ingredient in soy sauce.   Accusing a manufacturer of "lying" about ingredients is a serious charge.  If you actually have proof that this company is not listing ingredients, you should report it to the FDA.

    • Thanks for all the input guys. Yeah I've had the vit/min panels and all that done and it was all normal. Regardless I've been supplementing with 1,000mcg sublingual B12 daily, 5,000iu sublingual D3 every few days, and since going keto, "ketovitals" which gives me some magnesium, potassium, sodium, and calcium. Also douse everything in pink sea salt and drink a ton of water. For months now I've tended to get at LEAST 10 hours of sleep per night... Usually. I still at times have terrible insomnia, which is what happened the other night, then had to get up early. Got a total of maybe 5 hours and still feeling it now 2 days later despite sleeping closer to 14 hours a night since. So Ennis, you mentioned about lectins, which I'm now reading about, and interestingly, certain things I don't do well with (usually uncooked veggies, aside from onions) seem to correspond to this. I even do fine with peas, but, I cook those. I'll have to start experimenting. The only part that gets me is that I'm reading grain-fed meats are high in lectins. I've read before that the supposed grain/grass fed difference is BS, and in fact the one thing that has never let me down through all of this is chicken, and I just buy the regular stuff for that. Can anyone confirm or debunk?
    • At 6. Months I was still recuperating for sure. Still had the dh but less of it, still had chronic pain in my abdomen but less of it, still constipated. I was in the stage of eating gluten-free processed foods, which was too much gluten for me, and keeping my symptoms active. In all actuality my C stopped a few months ago. I've been gluten-free for almost 10 years now.
    • 6 months for me stuff was still iffy. I was having bad days good days wtf days. Seemed like ANY change and my body threw a tantrum like a little kid. Yeah sleep patterns lol. I STILL CAN not change them I HAVE to go to bed at a certain time and WAKE at a certain time (9pm-4am)or my cycle goes all out of wack (also take a mid afternoon nap) , the entire day becomes ruined. Meals are the same way. There is this like 30-60mins window if I miss this shot my body goes all kinds of wonky. Mostly it become anemic and my got shuts down and constipation sets in. Always have to have hot fluids or this happens also.....no more cold drinks lol.

      EVEN if your levels are fine, supplementing is something many of us HAVE to do. For me I do not feel "Normal" unless I take my B-vitamins etc. Heck if i miss my magnesium supplement I block up, stop stomach emptying, get cramps, and generally vomit after day 2 if I eat anything. Supplementing is the new "Normal" for me.

      Still to this day food diary shows ups and downs with certain foods, I can not eat many foods, and others HAVE to be prepared in a certain way. heck up until recently I assumed it was a histamine issue or mast cell. Then I found some high histamine foods that should did not bother me go figure, then learned of something called Lectins and my prep methods that work with foods.....corresponds to lowering lectin content.....yeah SO I might have solved that mystery but am experimenting with it still.

      Health wise I am now doing much better and after 4 years found that "Perfect" diet plan for my body (at least for now). Putting on weight,  and trying to body build, still seems to yoyo with ups and days but less now.
    • Sorry to hear you are still suffering so. Have you had a vitamin and mineral panel done?  You should at least have your B12 levels checked. If they are not over 500 then try a subligual B12. That might help a bit.  I take a Stress B supplement but was able to drop the B12 after about 5 years. I know how hard it is to stick to a very regimented schedule as far as sleep goes. I suffer greatly if I don't retire and get up at the same time every day. I am trying to adjust my schedule a bit right now and paying for it. I have been going to sleep at 8pm and getting up at 4am now for a long time which cuts out any real social life.  The last few days I have stayed up till 9:30 or so and gotten up at 5:30 with a headache and generally feeling lousy.  I started getting up very early a few years ago so that I would still get enough sleep even if I have to be somewhere earlier than normal.  Is it possible to adjust your sleep schedule so that if needed you can be somewhere early and not have it mess up your system?  I try to wake at least 3 to 4 hours before I leave the house. It is amazing how much you can get done and how relaxed your beginning day is when you don't have to worry about having to get up early to accomodate an unusually early obligation. Please don't get discouraged. It can take a very long time to heal but for many of us we were ill for years before we finally got diagnosed. I hope you see more progress soon. Be patient with yourself as there are no instant fixes for us, unfortunately.
