If you enjoy Asian-inspired meals without having to worry about funky ingredients, then you are going to love San-J Gluten Free Asian Cooking Sauces.
Our favorite sauce so far has been the Thai Peanut flavor.
We loved it so much that I contacted San-J and asked if they would allow me to review the product.
At the end of this post, make sure you enter to win a free bottle of San-J Thai Peanut sauce!
What We Love About San-J Thai Peanut Sauce
The main reason we love this sauce is of course the flavor. Tangy, peanuty, with just a little touch of spice, this sauce goes perfect with stir-fry.
I use it all the time to make a quick Pad Thai.
It works great as a dipping sauce for egg rolls, and you can use it as a marinade for exotic satay barbecue chicken.
Use it as a quick dressing for a green or pasta salad!
But the reason I love this sauce more than other brands is the quality of the product:
- No artificial preservatives
- No MSG
- Certified Gluten Free
The main ingredient in the sauce is San-J’s own Tamari soy sauce, which is made from 100% soybeans (no wheat). Their soy sauce is also certified gluten free and non-GMO project verified.
We are not gluten-free in our house, but I feel good about a product that is made from pure soybeans. Many soy sauces are only 60% or less soybeans, the rest is wheat.
San-J doesn’t cheapen their sauce- they do it 100% soybean style.
