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)

Wheat triggers exorphins that give you an immediate feeling of satisfaction--for a short period of time. And then you start craving more and more.

Curious about this one, cause I haven't yet developed the taste for Chopin, which is notably distilled from potatoes. Most other vodkas (Grey Goose, Absolut, etc) are distilled from wheat. Anyone know if they contain gluten or not?

Gluten is removed during distillation, so they should be gluten-free unless they have had gluten-containing flavoring added.
