I'm looking for an imitation crab meat that is gluten free as well as soy free. It has to be imitation because I'm allergic to shellfish, but I can eat other types of fish. Or if there is not a safe brand out there can someone tell me how to make fake crab meat? That would probably be even better. Thanks!

All the brands I've ever seen contain wheat. Maybe someplace like Whole Foods might have some gluten-free, soy free?

I have never seen a brand that didn't have a lot of gluten. Fake crab meat is mostly fish and flavoring stuck together with gluten.

If you find one, please let us know! I LOVED the imitation crab and miss it very much. But I haven't found any that we can have.

That's what I was afraid of. No Whole Foods around here, but I'll be checking Trader Joe's. I was hoping that if someone could given me a brand name I could request one of my local stores to start carrying it.

actually, I googled a little and came up with this....more than you wanted to know, but if you are the adventursome type and can experiment alot, at the bottom of the section titled Raw Materials (I think) describes some things in it. Perhaps you could come up with something.

Interesting. I've been googling for a recipe and can't find one--all the recipes come up as recipes that USE imitation crab meat rather than ones that describe how to make it. I guess it's one of those heavily processed items I won't be making from scratch.

After tons of searching I found a post on this site from 2007:

So I guess my next step is to contact this company, because the links posted don't say anything about gluten and I need to know about soy as well.

Wow, that was a fast! I got an e-mail reply already. Here's what they wrote:

Hello XXXX,

We do not add any gluten containing ingredients to the Lobster Classic Chunk and our Crab Classic Chunk formulas. However, we do NOT certify these products to be gluten free. Certification requires special handling, testing and specially designed lines which we do not have. We take all reasonable precautions to avoid cross contamination however we cannot eliminate all risk.

I hope this helps,

Kenji Maeda

    • In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free.  I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!!  Awesome!!!  
    • If you yourself have Celiac's disease, you probably shouldn't give gluten-free sandwiches to the homeless, because they're disgusting. Your male neighbor doesn't need tampons. That sort of reasoning should be applied. But you must always remember that the Gospel requires you to treat other people ... View the full article
    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
