Soy Sauce

I made a recipe last night with soy sauce which didn't say 'gluten free' on the label but none of the ingredients had gluten. This morning I have a headache. Am unsure how this could be. Most soy sauce actually says Wheat under ingredients but this one didn't. Am I missing something?

I don't think you are missing anything--wheat would be listed if it were an ingredient. There are some soy sauces that do not include wheat. Many products which are, in fact, gluten-free are not so labeled to avoid legal liability issues.

La Choy soy sauce and Kroger brand soy sauce are the two I've used that are gluten-free. Was it one of those? I can vouch for those two.

The last time I bought the Food Lion brand, it didn't have wheat listed either and I've been fine with it.

My wife often eats take-out/delivery Chinese food. Lately I noticed the little packets of soy sauce that come with now contain no wheat, or gluten ingredients.

I tasted a little. Seemed very weak to me, almost flavorless. But then, I think I'm used to bold flavor in my soy sauce. Before Celiac, I would always say "may I say one word about soy sauce"? "Kikkomans"! I expect gluten-free soy sauce to come as close to that high level of quality as I can get it. Long fermenting times, very aromatic, bright & clean on the nose and palette, Full bodied, with depth & balance.

That immediately eliminates all store brands. There's a reason they cost a buck. Quality in soy sauce comes at a price. La Choy probably makes all those store brands, nuff said about that. Then there's San J. Better, but just doesn't compare to Eden Foods Organic Tamari Soy Sauce, in my opinion. Been using it for four years. Hands down the best gluten-free soy sauce I’ve tasted. I’m dying to try Kikkomans new gluten-free soy sauce, but haven’t seen it yet.

Here’s some info on this highly recommended gluten-free soy sauce. Educational also, lot's of history and info on tamari, miso, shoyu, etc.

best regards, lm

More info on Tamari:

EDEN Tamari Soy Sauce is made by master brewers, skilled in the art of koji fermentation handed down through generations. Made from whole organic, GEO free soybeans inoculated with koji (Aspergillus oryzae), water and the finest sea salt. It is carefully tended and aged in cedar casks through two seasonal cycles.

EDEN Organic Imported Tamari was named the best out of seven brands sampled by an expert panel of tasters in the San Francisco Bay area. The San Francisco Chronicle organized the tamari taste test for its "Tasters Choice" column. Panelists were Linda Anusasananan, food writer and consultant, San Mateo; John Carroll, cookbook author, San Francisco; Amanda Gold, San Francisco Chronicle Food staff; Shelley Handler, consultant, San Francisco; and Roland Passot, chef-owner, La Folie and five Left Banks. "In judging tamari, the panel looked for a smooth, rich flavor balanced by the right amount of salt," the Chronicle reported. "Common problems were harsh or sweet notes, or too much salt. The tamaris were served plain and with white rice." "The top tamari, in the panel's opinion, was Eden's imported version with the green label, which is organic and made in Japan in the traditional long-fermented way

Did the recipe or ingredients have MSM in it ? I have heard that some Chinese MSM can have gluten in it, now. :(
