Gluten Free Sake

Hello Everyone,

I recently have been on the hunt for gluten free sake. I'm aware that sake is made from rice, however many often add barley at the end of the fermintation process to add flavor. I came across this site, which states which sakes have been found to be gluten free (I know they exist) http://canweeatthat.typepad.com/blog/2011/04/gluten-free-sake.html - When searching "Gekkeikan Sake" so many came up on this site and they all look like they are made from different companies http://www.shopwiki.com/l/Gekkeikan-Sake?sb=1

The person who posted the information about the gluten free sake also said that any sakes that say Junmai are gluten free because they are "pure with no additional ingredients added". Is this true for all of them????? Help!

I would appreciate some insight on the matter and if anyone has a specific name or website I would appreciate it if you could message it to me.

Thanks!

Sake - fermented with rice and Koji enzymes. The Koji enzymes are grown on Miso, which is usually made with barley. The two-product separation from barley, and the manufacturing process should make it safe for celiacs.

...this is all I got! B)

I discovered a Gluten Free Sake that is amazing. The name of the company is TY.KU - They make 4 different types of sake, all gluten free, contain no sulfites or tannens. They also make a citrus liquor and a soju (these are not gluten free). All their liquors contain no sugar; they all are made with real fruit juices and have half the calories of other liquors. All their sakes are top notch and should be served chilled. 76% of sake, specifically sake served hotis considered Futsu (very low grade).

GlutenGirl, Did you have success with the Gekkeikan??

I picked up a bottle today and was really looking forward to it, but decided last minute to check to make sure.. (not checking first has bitten me in the bum before!)

I've never had any problem with junmai, ginjo or daiginjo but these are types of sake in Japan. i can't be sure about  other made in the US brands like Gekkeikan, Shochikubai, momokawa and a few others. 

 

Also namazake   and nigori sake types should be ok..  

 

I can't remember in my 9 years of being celiac and maybe 30 trips to Japan that time, of having problems from  sake and i'm pretty sensitive and cant  have things with the disclaimer  made in a factory  that has wheat etc etc.

 

good luck

I recently found a great website that talks about gluten-free Sake in details. 

 

http://sake-talk.com/is-sake-gluten-free/

 

They say premium Sake is 100% gluten-free whereas non-premium cheap Sake is not necessarily.

Just check the bottle label, and if it says one of the following premium types the Sake is gluten-free.

And they have an infographic which helps me easily understand about Sake.

 

Daiginjo, Junmai Daiginjo, Ginjo, Junmai Ginjo, Junmai, Tokubetsu Junmai, Honjozo and Tokubetsu Honjozo

 

I'm in Australia, so not sure about the American Sake brands, but I have never had any problems with Go-shu. they offer premium types. Hope it helps:)

I just made a post, but according to SAKETALK, Koji enzymes are not grown on Miso. Miso is made from Koji enzymes which are grown on either rice, barley or soybeans. So Koji is just one of the ingredients of Miso which is the final product.. 

Koji used for Sake is legally required to be rice Koji. So no barley or soy is used for Sake in the first place!

    • I am confused too.  I appears that your blood panel was indeterminate, but that your NP had you on a grain free diet for five weeks prior.  You went back on gluten for two weeks (recommendation is 2 to 4) for the endoscopy.  Maybe it was not enough time for your antibodies to build up and start attacking your small intestine.   Doctors can not say for sure that two weeks is enough.  Probably for most, but maybe not all.  I say this because I never even test positively on the TTG and EMA EVER (but my biopsies proved otherwise and my anemia resolved forever on the gluten free diet).  The number of biopsies taken (6 or more recommended) and the location should be determined.  I would ask for all medical and lab reports.   Your child had a positive DGP IgA like me, yet if I recall, they are dismissing celiac disease.  I think a second GI consult might be prudent.   Your symptoms?  If you have celiac disease it can take a few MONTHS to feel better.  Why?  Most often mistakes are made in the diet.  It happens.  There is a steep learning curve.  It flat out just takes time to heal.  I think most members will tell you that healing does not happen that fast even though science tells us that villi regenerates in just a few days.   There is usually a lot of collateral damage. Finally, something is wrong.  Maybe it is NOT celiac disease.  I though for sure my niece had it, but Crohn's was found instead on a pill camera.  She had consulted with four GIs!!!! So, keep advocating for your health and your child's.  
    • I looked at your past posts, but I’m not sure i know what you were eating then and what you’ve stopped eating now. Also what sort of medical workups you’ve had and what were the results. I understand your biopsy was negative - but I also saw on one post that you were worried they only took one biopsy. Do you have the analyst’s result report there with you? Does it say how many were taken? It’s hard for me to hazard any kind of a guess without a little bit more information, including any medications you are taking. I’m sorry you are feeling so awful. What symptoms are you having? Plumbago
    • I've posted a few different topics, so I thought I would just update in one post. I am seeing my GP later today, but apparently my biopsy results were negative. I have no further information on this. What I do know, is that I have been feeling much worse since giving up gluten after my gluten challenge. Half the days I have barely left the couch. I am so confused and upset. They had warned me this may not give me answers...I'm barely eating anything, I feel so sick. I feel like I felt better eating bread, so maybe that's how I'm supposed to be eating? At this point I just need to eat more than a banana, which is all I can stomach today.
    • It doesn't change DH, but it always makes me smile thinking someone means Dear Husband instead of the rash.
    • It's done this since I started on here, many years ago.  Kind of funny when people type g f meaning girlfriend...... 😄
