Fish sauce is my answer to all things soy sauce. It makes a strong statement on your food and you only need a small dose instead of a drenching. Fermenting certainly changes things but that science is above my knowledge.

I suspect you are over-thinking this. If you are gluten-sensitive, bread or pasta will suffice for a test substance. But if it feels better for you to eliminate all variables, by all means use the seitan. Six weeks is generally recommended... (more)
