Gluten free soy sauce

San J soy sauce is pretty awesome. It comes in low sodium and is available at a bunch of places. However, it usually starts at around $7....a little expensive for my blood.

So I have been looking into other brands of soy sauce. I have been told that "La Choy" offers gluten free soy sauce but is not great. (I think I saw it described online as pig sweat or something like that.) Recently on a trip to Dillions, Ashley and I found that Dillions brand soy sauce was also gluten free and crazy cheap....ridiculous cheap. Like $2 for a bottle. Sadly, you get what you pay for and I really don't like it. Ashley says it's fine but I think it is brown salt water with a bad smell and aftertaste. Yuck.

San J is still the winner. (I have found it at "Food for thought," "Whole Foods" and "Green Acres." in Wichita)


  1. Have you tried Bragg's liquid aminos? We use it in place of soy sauce in most of our stir-frys - it's milder and not salty at all, but it's a pretty acceptable substitute. Not super cheap but Dillons and green Acres both have it.

  2. I like La Choy Soy Sauce. There is only a small taste difference and it works great for homemade Broccoli Beef.
