Kikkoman has two wheat-free sauces that are suitable for gluten-free and coeliac diets - Tamari and GF Teriyaki. Read on to find out more and also which other foods are fine to eat and which to avoid on a gluten-free diet

More and more of us are choosing a wheat-free diet, whether diagnosed as coeliac or as a lifestyle choice. Now Kikkoman has made it even easier to go gluten-free with the addition of brand new Gluten-free Teriyaki Marinade to the range so that everyone can enjoy the delicious taste of teriyaki.

Along with the already popular Kikkoman Tamari Gluten-free Soy Sauce, home cooks can whip up even more delectable dishes. It is especially excellent for adding a Japanese flair to barbecues – just marinate chosen ingredients for about 30 mins, then grill over hot coals, brushing over more during cooking for a sweet-savoury flavour and appetising shine.

It’s also tasty with pan-fried food, rice and salads. Or try making our Tuna Poke Rice Roll recipe - a great gluten-free snack that’s a cross between a burrito and sushi!
