I love soy sauce.  It has to be good soy sauce.

When I was offered the opportunity to sample some San-J Organic Tamari Sauces through Moms Meet, I applied.  I had attended the online party with Moms Meet and San-J earlier and was excited to taste their products.

All about San-J Organic Tamari Gluten Free Sauces

  • Made with 100% soy and no wheat.  Regular soy sauce contains 40-60% wheat.  This is great news for those of us who must eat gluten free!
  • San-J sauces are fermented for up to six months using Japanese brewing methods.   
  • Sauces contain no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.  My boys have to avoid artificial colors so they love knowing these sauces are safe.
  • A 10-ounce bottle typically retails for around $4.45.
  • The higher concentration of soy protein gives these sauces a milder, richer, and more complex taste.

Which sauce to choose and for what meal?

For this product review, I chose to taste the San-J Gluten Free Orange Sauce for Asian Glaze and Stir Fry.  The one dish mentioned on the San-J site for this particular sauce is Orange Chicken.  I was so excited to be able to make Orange Chicken at home!

Well, a few days ago while watching a show, the character started eating egg rolls.  I remembered I had purchased a big box of gluten free egg rolls.  So, for dinner that night, we had the gluten free egg rolls and used the Orange Sauce for dipping.  My husband and I liked the combination of the egg rolls with the sauce.  My boys thought the sauce was a little strong.  I told them "it tastes like orange sauce to me."

I wanted to use the Orange Sauce in a second meal where the sauce would not be as strong.  I decided to make Shanghai Chicken (found in my book, The Gluten-Free Way: My Way).  Since the recipe calls for soy sauce and water, I figured the water would help reduce the intensity of the sauce for my boys.  It also calls for sugar so it sweetened it some as well.

I was not certain how the orange sauce would taste in place of soy sauce.  It turned out delicious.

All six of us ate it and it was difficult to not eat the rest!  I plan on having the leftovers for lunch tomorrow.
