I have been unable to find a gluten and soy free Worcestershire sauce commercially-- does one exist? If not, is there are tried and true homemade recipe (perhaps using coconut aminos?)
I currently use French's which is gluten free, but the soy component (unless I use it for braising and cook it for hours and hours) upsets my stomach--- I can deal with sugar and other 'non-Paleo' ingredients in a Worcestershire sauce, just not gluten as it is a migraine trigger for me. Many thanks!
Lea & Perrins is the original Worcestershire sauce, and is widely available. It contains neither soy nor gluten. In fact, in a cursory look at the ingredients label, it doesn't have other funky ingredients, either. Real food, I'd say.
You should not deal with the "non-paleo" ingredients in Worcestershire sauce, there is some stuff in there that you DON'T want in your body. Such as:
Try this recipe, fermented too: http://nourishedkitchen.com/recipes/?recipe_id=6002215
I keep Lea & Perrins around too, forgot that it is soy free. Also I keep Fish Sauce around which is similar without the fruit-tones of worcestershire. It comes in handy when as recipe calls for anchovies and I don't have them or if I'm out of lea&Perrins or just making thai food. I think Red Boat is sugar free. Most other brands have sugar in them, some even have soy so label reading time if you get some.
