Can a PA child eat worstershire sauce? What about teriyaki sauce??


I should know these things but I have to say I've just kept everything away from him. Thanks for any info.

I cook all the time with Worcestershire sauce, Teriyaki and soy sauce. My pa daughter has had no problems. But I still check the label every time I buy a new bottle of any of these items. Fortunately she's not allergic to soy as well. I think Worcestershire sauce might have anchovies as an ingredient - maybe someone knows.

Just now a woman I work with told me she watched a biography about George Washington Carver (for those who don't know who he is, in 1914 he began experimenting with the peanut as a cash crop and invented all sorts of uses for the peanut). She asked me if I knew that Worcestershire sauce is made with peanuts?

It must not be made with peanuts anymore. But, I'm going to do some research and see what I can find out. Thanks, Nick for that Lea & Perrins site. I'll update if I find out any pertinent information.

Edited to add: I looked on many web sites for the ingredients and none list peanut. But this is a great site - it lists hidden ingredients in many foods. (Hope I get the linking okay)

since we avoided fish (my younger two still have not had fish) we used (and still use) angostura worcestershire sauce because it has no fish in it. According to the rep there it also has no chance of peanut/tree nut contamination.

I contacted lea-perrins last week re: nuts in their w-sauce. They said the product doesn't contain any nuts.

No one can blanket say yes a PA kid can eat teriyaki or w sauce. Each sauce is different and we can never get that comfortable that we stop reading labels. peg

I forgot to mention before-we are using Chef Myron's teriyaki sauce. All of their sauces are pn/tn free. [url=""][/url]

I don't think my PA son has tried worchestershire sauce only because his Father is the only one that likes it in the house and we rarely have it in.

He does eat soy sauce (I know you didn't ask about it), without any problems. I buy V & H brand I believe, here in Canada.

Teriyaki sauce, we've only recently tried that and it was in a pre-packaged meal by Green Giant. The stir fry veg and sauce mix you buy and then add your own meat to. Anyway, the labeling for what was in the sauce was really *good*, IMHO, so I felt okay about purchasing it. But, in all honesty, NONE of us cared for it because of ginger in it.

I like the point Peg541 made before the thread started again. If I wanted to try either of those sauces with my PA son, I would be label reading and probably checking things out here as well.

Best wishes! [img][/img]
