Product Review: San-J Organic Tamari Wheat Free Soy Sauce- kosher/ gluten free/ wheat free

Posted on | March 25, 2008 | 4 Comments


This April is my anniversary month.

In April I will be gluten free for two years- minus some cross contamination issues here and there (oops!). For 18 of those months, I did not eat any stir-fry, Asian influenced dishes, or marinades that required soy sauce. Why you may ask? This may sound silly. but I simply did not know that gluten free soy sauce existed. And oh did I love spicy Chinese food and stir-fry! When I realized that I could, in fact, still have my favorite dishes, I was SO excited! After I purchased my first bottle of gluten free soy sauce, I think I made stir fry four nights in a row- each a different version- spicy chicken, veggie, beef and broccoli- you name it, I made it. I was in heaven! It was the best $3.49 I ever spent.

I have had no problems with my gluten free soy sauce. I purchased the San-J Tamari organic soy sauce after my sisters wedding at a natural foods store back in December, and I have enjoyed it ever since. At first, I was unsure since the label only says “wheat free.” And as we all know, wheat free does not mean gluten free. However, on the label, it is specified that this gluten free soy sauce is made in a plant inspected by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization. That made me feel better.

I have successfully used this gluten free product in grilling marinades and stir-fry so far. This product is just another reason why I have discovered cooking and eating gluten free isn’t so bad after all.

Rating: 5 stars!!

    I LOVE this soy sauce! It’s one of the first things I bought in September when I found out about my wheat allergy. AND…some stores have it in the ‘low sodium’ variety! Yippee for yummy asian food!!

    Congrats on your anniversary! My 5-year anniversary is coming up in June. Living GF is a fabulous thing!

    The San-J Tamari GF soy sauce is wonderful. As you said, it has the GF certification from the GFCG org under GIG, which means so much. (I have tried LaChoy soy sauce, which is supposably GF, but it gives me issues each time. ) A favorite recipe of our family’s is to marinate 5 lbs of chicken wings in 10-oz of soy sauce overnight or up to 24 hours (no longer or they will be too salty) and then bake at 325 for 1 to 1 1/2 hours (turning over half way through baking) and broil for about 10 minutes (turning over half way through). Soooo yummy! I made them for our support group meeting recently and the kids especially enjoyed them.

    Karen, thanks for this soy sauce! I haven’t had soy sauce in years, so I had to get used to having it again. But now I love it. I have it all the time. I love the taste. It’s great!
