Soy Sauce Flavor Alternative Suggestions?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I can't have soy at the moment, but miss the flavor of gluten-free soy sauce for stir fry.

I added a couple of shredded anchovies today, which was quite good, but wondered if anyone has a favorite alternative?

Thanks :)

Thanks love2 :) I reckon I can do that if I can get my head round the balsamic?

So IH, do you reckon 2 tsp molasses is pushing it for whole 30?

I love the whole substitution thing, it cracks me up reading all the different variants we end up using

Can you not have balsamic or do you not like it? Maybe I'm missing something... :huh:

I read somewhere that cheaper balsamic may not be gluten-free, but I can't find where. Our labeling is slightly different in the UK and I sometimes get confused.

I am very happy to be told I can crack into the balsamic from a gluten-free point of view. I need to check if it is also whole30 compliant.

This all gets complicated some days :)

Ah...I see. I have not yet seen any vinegars that contain gluten other than malt, of course. And I had also forgotten about the whole30 thinger.

You're right. It CAN be complicated. :blink:

I think balsamic will be one of my early reintroductions post whole30 then :)

Cheers l2

...and if you can only find the cheapie stuff, just reduce it by half in pan and add a touch of brown sugar. Voila - better balsamic. This recipe would not be the place to use 50-year-old gold label aceto balsamico tradizionale de Modena! :lol:

Balsamic is okay, gluten free. (I have never seen a vinegar except malt vinegar that was a danger to us) but I am sure someone on here will argue loudly with me about that. :)

Molasses is pure cane sugar, but if you want to use it, I won't tell a living soul. -_-

cmw, an alternative which I think is much better and I add to stir frys and bolognese sauce is called Hendersons relish. The company is uk based tho but it is soy and gluten free and tastes

delicious! :) It actually makes me look like I can cook when I use it :)

It looks like soy sauce and has the same consistency.

I take some salt, pepper, and brown sugar and add some homemade beef stalk to it. I found that that is kinda similar. Then i simmer it (actually, this is the base to my beef soup most of the time :lol: ). I've done it in smaller batches with some success. I have no mesurments, just what looks right.

Hi Mindwarp,

 

I bought coconut aminos which looks and tastes like soy. I found it when I was looking for coconut sugar which is supposedly low glycemic (I'm pre diabetic). It tastes pretty good and is made from fermented coconut sap. Hopefully you're not allergic to coconut.

 

There's also another thing called "black bean soy sauce" but it's more difficult to find. I couldn't find it online and have to trek to an asian grocery store to find it. It's worth having a bottle if you like stir frys. They use rice flour to thicken it, so it gives your stir frys a nice glaze if you use it.

Thank you! I have had the coconut aminos recommended, must try :)

Black bean is a great idea, and widely available in the uk. I love it. I stir fry most days!

" I stir fry most days!"

    • Can you get a copy of your bloodwork and the results and ranges so we can tell what has already been run? We have some folks really knowledgable about lab work that might be able to give some insight or let you know what other tests to have your doctor run.  I agree with Ennis that this should be followed up on.  When your fingers and toes get purpleish have they been exposed to the cold? It could be Raynauds which isn't serious, as far as I know. Do try some supplements, making sure they are gluten free and bring them with you to any doctors appointments. To get accurate levels you may need to stop some for a bit before the doctor checks.
    • Hi there,  I eat a very clean unprocessed diet, and was this way before I was diagnosed with celiac. The most processed my foods get is just having two pieces of toast in the morning. Before I was diagnosed with celiac they had me monitoring my blood sugars, but did not seem to think it was diabetic. I will definitely talk to my doctor about vitamin deficiencies and hope he will take it more seriously!  Thank you for the prompt feedback!
    • I understand the link.   I’ve gotten sick from Frito products that are labeled gluten free.  I called and spoke with them on their processes, they “clean” the lines.  I won’t buy products that are ran on shared lines/“cleaned”.  It’s not worth it.  
    • This could be related to nutrient deficiencies such as multip B-vitamins, magnesium, primarily with some others to consider like vitamin D E and iron. But my concern with be diabetes also, it is a fact that diabetes and celiac go hand in hand often. AND if you eat gluten free processed food often you are eating a ton more starch, carbs, and sugars then you need to which could make this worse. I would really suggest seeing a doctor about this as it seems to be a really serious issue. Discoloration is a blood flow issue normally.....this could lead to complications and loss/amputation of you your extremities. Again my main concern would be diabetes, if you want to help keep track of this get a glucose monitor from walmart and check you blood glucose before and a at the 30, 60, 90, 120min mark after a meal for a week monitor the results and see about taking them to a doctor. If your seeing large spikes and drops between and after meals this could be a sign of something. (again observational data not a doctor here  but info to help). You can try supplementing B-vitamin complexes and magnesium also help but PLEASE talk to a doctor on this issue. Change to a whole foods only diet for awhile and see about cutting out processed foods, sugars, and going easy on the carbs.
    • Celiac disease is a bit like a chameleon in symptoms with over 500 known combinations (someone else said this number). It being a autoimmune disease it would not be unheard of it effecting the lymph nodes and in fact early on my first signs of a CC was tightening and swelling of the ones in my neck. I have not noticed this with my past few encounters in the past 2 years. But as I said it is a chameleon in symptoms. You will need to be eating gluten daily for about 12 weeks for the celiac blood panel which is the standard for testing with this disease. And keep eating it for 2 weeks prior to a follow endoscope and biopsy to check for intestinal damage. You can read up more in the link http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/
