There are precautions you must take, such as choosing safe items and bring your own gluten-free soy sauce.
I’ve been lulled into complacency and today had a disaster which I will share with you so you can avoid gluten contamination when eating sushi.You should avoid crab (usually fake, can be made with wheat) tempura, anything else deep-fried, and soy sauce. Miso soup can also be a problem.
Today I went to Nari Sushi on 257 King St. East, Toronto. It is a take-out with a few tables close to where I am working at present. I carefully avoided the crab and brought my own soy sauce. I had some sushi with shrimp and some other item, I wasn’t sure what it was. Tired and hungry, I wasn’t very sharp and didn’t check carefully.
I realized I had a disaster when I realized the unknown stuff I was eating might be wheat. Sure enough it was deep-fried wheat. This is not very good sushi to have such filler in it. Also, I found the shrimp is deep-fried.
I’ve already eating and swallowed it. Nothing I can do, don’t know how to throw it up and get it out of my body.
I’m in for a rough few weeks.
