Particularly one that might be available locally (Safeway, QFC, etc.)?

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".

I know that Uwajimaya has it. Not the low sodium version, at the Bellevue one, but I haven't tried Seattle or Renton recently. (Not sure if they have one up north for ya! ;) )

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.

    •  I have a friend with MS, another with breast cancer and a third with RA.  At the same age my only problem is I cannot eat gluten!  So when I start getting frustrated about food I think about that and how lucky I truly am.  Once you get in the swing of it it gets easier and then you start to feel better which makes it all worth it.    Also when I first went gluten-free I read on this group about Mark's daily Apple and the Paleo community. I turned to that which was extremely motivating.  I've never seen so many people so excited about not eating gluten. It was a very positive energy and motivated me to find other foods to eat. Also, they love bacon! 
    • I know I needed the confirmation.  My hubby went gluten free per the very poor advice from my allergist and his GP.   It worked, but we really do not know if he has celiac disease.  He refuses to do a gluten challenge and I do not blame him.  We do know that gluten makes him sick.  He has been gluten free for 16 years.   So, when my GI suspected celiac disease, I could not believe it.  I had no tummy issues at the time, but was anemic.  Had been my whole life and it was blamed on a genetic anemia and menstruation.  I knew what being gluten free meant and I did not want to have celiac disease.  But,   I got positives  on the DGP and my biopsy.    Nothing like seeing something in writing.  I showed that to my extended family who was in denial as well.   I had a shared household with hubby all those years.  But after my diagnosis and the fact my kid started making things in the kitchen, we all went Gluten Free.  Great kid, but I could not trust her with my health!  If you DD has small siblings, consider all going gluten free.  They can eat gluten outside of the house.  That is what my kid does.  
    • Yes, I used to write a lot, for work and pleasure. Now, not so much. Which probably explains why you guys have to suffer the occasional bout of nonsense!
    • Some cookware you can get rid of the gluten by running in the oven clean cycle then scrubbing. Gluten is a protein not a germ, so disinfectant will not get rid of it but high heat above 500F can destroy the proteins. This way you can save cast iron and some baking pans/sheets. To make double sure after, use foil and parchment paper in baking pans/dishes also makes clean up real easy. Butcher paper makes a nice clean counter top/work area and after your done your can pick it up dump it off into the trash for easy clean up and after a few days or if it gets real messy just toss it. Really makes kitchen cleanup easier and changed my life. OH get new untenil organizers for your drawers to avoid gluten crumbs getting on your silverware/new utensils and vacuum out all drawers real good, Make sure you clean out the cupboards, and fridge real good for crumbs.
    • JMG,  I just read your link and the posts about your non celiac diagnosis and although they are about a painful experience, they are enjoyable to read. You are very talented. Have any of your jobs involved writing?
