So I was reading a guide on Japanese soy sauces and apparently Japanese celiacs observe no ill effects from having soy sauce that was brewed with wheat in it:
"*A note about gluten intolerance and soy sauce. Much of the wheat gluten is broken down and basically consumed by the yeast during the long fermentation process. I???ve looked at the blogs of many Japanese celiacs, and they all say they don???t worry about consuming small amounts of soy sauce."
While soy is not paleo I'm not strictly paleo and allow a small amount of soy in my diet, personally I don't see a detrimental effect on my health.
So if you've cut out grains it seems alright to have a small amount of soy sauce in your food and you won't get the ill effects? These days I've stuck to tamari but it seems like the other varieties aren't harmful

My experience has been different. I had a chicken sausage that had soy sauce listed as one of the ingredients, albeit at the end of the ingredient list. I developed a migraine after a week of eating those. Since nothing else in my diet changed I assume the migraine resulted from the gluten in the soy sauce. I guess it just depends on how sensitive you are to gluten.
