San-J Gluten Free Thai Peanut Sauce

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.

Where To Buy San-J Products

We find our San-J products at our local whole food store, military commissary, and Hy-Vee grocer.  You can search on the San-J website for your closest retailer.

The product is most likely located in the Asian section of the store, near the soy sauces.

  • Szechuan

  • Asian BBQ
  • Orange (can't wait to try this!)
  • Sweet & Tangy

They also have gluten free Asian salad dressings and rice crackers!

  1. Great review and that recipe looks yummy. I’m amazed that you can get the Peanut sauce where you are and I can’t! We are so thankful for San-J gluten free Asian sauces. We love us some Asian food and when we found out our daughter was allergic to wheat we thought we were done. Her fave is the teriyaki right now. I’d love to try the orange sauce, too! and the BBQ.  But mostly, the orange.

    1. We live in a surprisingly whole food community.  Our military commissary has really stepped up their organic and whole food selection!

      I really want to try the orange sauce, I love orange chicken!

  2. I would loooove the orange sauce! I’m just transitioning to a G-free life, and orange chicken is one of my favorite Asian dishes. 😀

  3. Hello. I was recently introduced to your Thai Peanut Sauce (was looking for a peanut sauce that did not contain MSG). I observed that MSG is NOT in your products, however because there are alias for MSG, what salt and spices are used? I an highly allergic to MSG and its aliases, namely anything with hydroized in its name. Thank you for attending to my question.
