San-J Organic Tamari Wheat Free is gluten free and excellent. I don't know how easy it will be to find at Safeway though. La Choy isn't as good, but it is also gluten free and easy to find.

San J is the best I found. If not at safeway then any health food store should have it. Its marked wheat Free Tamari but not all tamari is wheat free so you have to read labels carefully unless you can find san J

My local health food store was serving samples of sushi using Bragg Liquid Aminos instead of soy sauce. It's excellent.

I like Braggs too - love that apple vinegar in salads too. She has a farm about 10 miles from here.

Seattle has a huge Asian population, so I figured I'd be able to find the San J. Went to the local Ranch 99 (a chain of large, Asian supermarkets http://www.99ranch.com/ ) they must have had 400 kinds of soy sauce, but of course, they were Sans San J! :rolleyes: But I did find a bottle. At Safeway! Can't wait to try it, haven't had any soy sauce in about 3 months.

Enjoy.

Although San J is for San Jurushi Company in Mie-Ken Japan, it's made in Kentucky I think.

I can't even find it in Japan!

take care and good luck

I love SanJ--it's what they use at my local PF Changs. At one visit there, the chef came out and gave me a brand new bottle of it to take home :D

Glad you were able to find it, David.

Ken--my bottle says "brewed in Richmond, Virginia".

You can get San-J at any health food store such as Whole Foods. Safeway, Fred Meyer, QFC, they all carry it too.

San-J is the only certified gluten free soy sauce made in the US. We love it!

Thanks for this info! Do you know if it's available in Canada as well?

I might be going grocery shopping at Safeway or Save on Foods and I was told Save on Foods as more gluten free choices by my friend who does the shopping for her celiac boyfriend.

I had some soy sauce today and saw the big WHEAT in the ingredients list and went ahead anyways because I figured it was a small amount. I still got some stomach pain, but that's the only wheat I've had today :)

I use both San-J and Braggs, Braggs is a little less salty to me. San-J has other gluten free sauces, like peanut and a sweet and tangy both are real good.

Try to stay away for soy sauce. Have you seen how much salt is in soy! :o

Heh, some of us with low blood pressure have no incentive to stay away from salt. Fortunately, however, you can use low sodium varieties in dishes and it's really not that much salt you end up getting. If I make a stir fry, I might use two tablespoons of soy sauce. At 700mg/tbsp (for San-J's low sodium wheat-free tamari), that's 1400mg in a dish we get six servings out of - 233mg per serving isn't too bad. :) (Really, it's the frequent use of packaged products that really adds up the sodium. Cereals and granola bars seem like they ought to be low sodium, but aren't. (My husband's family has a tendency towards salt-sensitive hypertension; I'm the opposite. :P) )

If you're going to 99 Ranch, you can pick up gluten-free soy sauces there in HUGE bottles for a fraction of the price of the San J stuff. I think it's tastier, too. Reading the labels the first time through might be a pain, but there are quite a few that are made with rice instead of wheat, and if you want dark or sweet soy sauces (for certain recipes -- you wouldn't want to use those in, say, fried rice), those are made with sugar.

99 Ranch is heaven. :)

Mskedi - Thanks for the reply. I don't doubt you're right, but looking through all the bottles with so many of them being non-English was a bit daunting. Can you recommend a specific brand? Maybe a nice LINK to the manufacturer's site with a picture of the bottle? :P

Seriously that last part would be great!

David.

When I wrote the post originally, I wanted to add a picture, but I needed to charge my battery so I was going to do it later. I guess I could have thought of linking it. I blame being tired. :P

Here you go:

This one is pretty all-purpose. I use it as I would any other soy sauce in fried rice, stir fries, korean stews... you name it, it works:

http://www.veryasia.com/104261.html

Sometimes I'll use this one along with the white soy sauce for a deeper flavor:

http://www.veryasia.com/kwong-hung-seng-black-soy-sauce.html

And then this is what you use to make pad see ew and other semi-sweet stir-fried noodles:

http://www.veryasia.com/104260.html

We used this brand at home years before I went gluten-free (it's what my husband's grandma used in her Thai restaurants), and the day we purged our kitchen of gluten-containing foods we found out we could keep these. It was a pleasant surprise.

Be sure you're only getting these particular ones, though -- this line does carry regular soy sauces with wheat as well.

Love the San-J too, but if you can't find it, then the Bragg's liquid Aminos could make do.

ALL have it. For regular customers the soy sauce is NOT gluten-free, but when you make it clear you need gluten-free, no problem.

    • Feeneyja, This will be a little long but I will  try to be brief as possible. See this discussion thread that talks about how Pellagra is often diagnosed as other disease's today because doctor's rarely recognize it today in a clinical setting. Pellagra's is described as the 3 D's if you don't count the 4th D of death if it goes long enough and is not diagnosed in a timely manner. Dementia (Neurological) Digestive (GI problems), Dermatitis issues (Ezcema, Psorsias, Acne etc.) According to mdguidelines website http://www.mdguidelines.com/pellagra indicates that quoting “The diagnosis of pellagra is straightforward when the classic rash is present but may be elusive if there are only gastrointestinal and/or neurological manifestations.” And why I believe in many cases Pellagra goes undiagnosed today.  Because doctor's have forgotten how it presents. A longer researcher article about the neurological presentations of pellagra mention the many ways a Niacin deficiency can present itself. Here is the link https://www.hindawi.com/journals/cggr/2012/302875/ and I will quote some of the neurological/dementia related symptom's of an undiagnosed pellagra patient. "Mental symptoms were wider than dementia, in that depression, fatigue, psychomotor retardation, mania, obsessions, and a whole range of psychoses with auditory and visual hallucinations were well described, along with personality change and sociopathic and drug and alcohol addictive behaviours. Panic disorders were seen as was a general inability to deal with physical or mental stress. Poor brain development such as hydrocephalus or cerebral palsy was also common. Acute delirium or even coma occurred, with some patients having myoclonus and other extrapyramidal signs reminiscent of the spongiform encephalopathies. The dementias of pellagra included features akin to Lewy body, Alzheimer’s, frontotemporal, vascular, and prion diseases. Parkinsonism was also common and a festinant gait was first described in pellagrins. Tremors of various descriptions, including asymmetric rest tremors, were noted and some patients had typical paralysis agitans. Pellagrins had a characteristic expressionless facies, so some signs of parkinsonism were present in most cases. Many features of pellagra closely resemble the nonmotor aspects of PD. The neurological manifestation did not stop there because other degenerative conditions, such as an amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-like picture, were described, with fasciculation of the tongue and upper and lower motor neuron signs. Cerebellar syndromes occurred and vertigo was frequent. Headaches, sensory and pain syndromes, epilepsy, and involuntary movements were noted as well as sleep disturbances. Cord lesions were also seen, as was optic atrophy, so there were multiple sclerosis (MS), like variants." It is me again. You can see the neurological symptom's of Pellagra are severe and wide ranging. Taking Niacinamide 3/day for 6 months can alleviate many of these symptom's if your daughter has subclinical pellagra and the doctor's don't know to look for it. I had deep depression for many, many years and I shudder to think now that only a Vitamin could of helped me 30+ years ago and the doctor's didn't know to look for it. Shoot it isn't just Niacin.  All B-Vitamin's help your stress levels.  IF you have stress B-Vitamins can help your stress levels. I take Folic Acid for Blood pressure problems and it keeps my BP with in a normal range. A article on celac.com discussed this topic in detail a few months ago. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html I hope it is helpful.  Good luck on your continued journey. If you have never heard of Pellagra you are not alone. Dr. Heaney discusses why this is so in his online article Pellagra and the 4 D's. http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2013/11/18/pellagra-and-the-four-ds/ If you don't have time to read the whole hindawi article I also suggest this shorter but informative blog about why a Niacin deficiency can cause dementia related conditions. https://pellagradisease.wordpress.com/ Then decide for yourself and your daughter's sake to decide whether to take Niacinamide or not to see if it helps the D's symptom's she is experiencing (Digestive, Dementia etc.) The International Journal of Celiac Disease makes note of this in their research that Pellagra could be contributing to symptom's being diagnosed as Celiac disease today instead of a possible (co-morbid) Pellagra that causes the same symptom's. When they discuss how Pellagra and Celiac disease are related (Co-Morbid) in a Celiac diagnosis are surprised to find that in 58% of Celiac's -- can also be diagnosed with Pellagra. See this link http://pubs.sciepub.com/ijcd/3/1/6/ Quoting 3. Pellagra and celiac disease "The two diseases can be connected in two aspects. 58% of pellagra patients were shown to have malabsorption and many had intestinal pathology on biopsies [36, 37]. Alternatively, Pellagra was described in celiac disease [38]. The skin manifestations in pellagra might have some additional etiologies, since multiple nutrient deficiencies are at the origin of the cutaneous manifestations in celiac disease. The following nutritional deficiencies inducing skin rashes, were describe in celiac disease: Zinc, Iron, Vitamin A, E, B12, niacin, folate, selenium and essential fatty acids [39, 40]." If one is being diagnosed incorrectly the other co-morbid conditions can continue to cause Celiac like symptom's. But if the majority of those who have been diagnosed as Celiac could be helped by taking Niacinamide I see no you reason you shouldn't try it. Or at least research it some more. Again good luck on your continued journey. 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. Posterboy by the grace of God,

    • Color me confused.  I went to Costco yesterday and there were 2 products there that had GLUTEN FREE plastered on the box but then in the ingredients was a: May contain wheat. How is this possible?  How can they still put gluten-free on the box?  We should be able to trust gluten-free labeling no?? And second question:  How many of you would still buy that item?  I REALLY wanted to buy the Island Way Sorbet for my daughter as it is her FAVE.  But I didn't want to take the risk.  Maybe when she is healthier?  I mean it is SORBET?! LOL So frustrating!
    • JMG I have never laughed so hard! This was the best epic comment I've read! Thankyou so much!  Your all teaching me so much! Love the 'my glass to go' idea!! I will be adopting this... can't believe the mucky glasses we must be drinking from! Shocking!  Im still baffled how so many people don't understand cross contamination i.e. The crumbs on the work surface to cut the lime for your tasty beverage!  Your all amazing Thankyou x
    • Yes!  I never really had GI symptoms, but I did have palpitations and restless leg syndrome from anemia.  These went away within the first month. But myalgia and joint aches aren't better after 1 year.  Waiting to get my antibodies re-tested and see if they're negative.....
