Alternative to Soy Sauce - with no tyramine

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created May 11, 2013 at 11:53 PM

I'm looking for an alternative for soy sauce, that:

  • doesn't contain wheat
  • doesn't contain gluten
  • doesn't contain tyramine, which means no soy beans.

Wheat-free tamari is out :(

Any suggestions?

I saw that and would assume any cured or fermented food would be problematic with regard to biogenic amines.

Too sweet for me but I mix it with fish sauce and the combo works.

Wikipedia said this: A hypertensive crisis can result from ingestion of tyramine-rich foods in conjunction with monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), which leads me to believe OP might have medication related issues / interactions with tyramine. Then again, they may simply be allergic, which happens.

Sorry, I meant tyrosine and tyramine!

Coconut and fish have about the same amount of tryptophan that soy does, so I'd guess there's little difference in tryptamine content between the fermented products.

Coconut a minos or fish sauce. I can't eat gluten, soy, or seafood so I only use coconut a minos. It is expensive so I use only a tiny bit at a time

I use umeboshi vinegar, which does not have exactly that same strong taste but goes well for dressing similar kind of food.

Depending on what I eat, I can also use guacamole, cilantro sauce, dijon maille mustard or chili sauce, with these options you can both find pretty stuffed comercial formulas or just the natural, plain thing (don't know if they have any natural occurring thyramine BTW).

The most natural version of these five dressings make my stack for flavouring nowadays.

Probably a tall order, any source of hydrolyzed protein is probably going to have some tyramine in it. Curious, why are you avoiding tyramine?

The only option that I know about is coconut aminos. Tastes about the same as soy sauce.
