We received your inquiry regarding Kikkoman Soy Sauce and Plum Sauce. You wanted to know if these products contain or are possibly cross contaminated with "nuts, peanuts or sesame seeds."
Kikkoman sauces that are brewed and produced by Kikkoman Foods, Inc. in Walworth, WI do not contain any nuts, peanuts or sesame seeds in them. Therefore, the Kikkoman Soy Sauce manufactured at this plant would be free of cross contamination. Please check the back of the label to see where the sauce was produced.
Although Kikkoman Plum Sauce does not contain any nuts, peanuts or sesame seeds, this sauce is produced at a plant that uses these ingredients in other products.
We hope this information is helpful to you. If we can be of further assistance, please let us know.
Sincerely,
KIKKOMAN INTERNATIONAL INC.

We use the La Choy soy sauce. I think I read on here somewhere that it was safe.So far, we've not had any problems with this sauce.
Thanks for posting the response you got. I guess I could try the Kikoman if it's made in the right facility.I use to buy the light brand.

I contacted Kikkoman last year and received the exact same answer. The woman was so nice and understanding.
We use Kikkoman soy sauce and teriyaki sauce both of which are bottled in Walworth, WI and have had no problems.
I buy these at the local grocery store and I have not seen any other production facility mentioned on their labels so far.

I use kikkoman too, and Jason is pn/tn/sesame allergic.
I never bothered checking on LaChoy soy sauce. I grew up using kikkoman and those hydrolyzed protein soy sauces (like LaChoy) just don't taste right to me.

Has anyone specifically used their Sweet and Sour sauce? I [i]think[/i] that it says WI on the label... but couldn't see anything near it on the grocery store shelf that didn't... so.
Do other Kikkoman products bear a different location on the packaging somewhere?
I would love to make sweet and sour chicken for DD. Naturally, I bought it but now I am terrified to let her try any. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/rolleyes.gif[/img]

I have a super easy recipe for sweet & sour sauce:
Sweet & Sour sauce:
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 Tbs cornstarch
5 TBS vinegar
2/3 cup pineapple juice
1 TBS soy sauce
1/4 tsp garlic powder
Combine sugar and cornstarch in a small pan. Stir in vinegar, pineapple juice, soy sauce and garlic. On medium heat, bring to a boil, then cook for 2 minutes.
When I make it, I cut the recipe in half and use a tiny pan. Only dh and I plus one of our kids eats it.

I was wondering if anyone knows what to substitute for these sauces if we can't use soy. I miss teriyaki sauce!
Thanks!

When Jason was soy allergic, we used ume plum vinegar as a soy sauce sub. The one we used is the Eden Foods brand that you can find at Whole Foods Market and health food stores.
It's got a similar sodium content to soy sauce, and the same kind of fermented tangy thing, but lacks the dark color... it's about the same color as red wine vinegar.
I love to use it as a dip for fresh veggies, and as an acid in salad dressings.
Ume plum vinegar is the brine left over from pickling Japanese ume plums (umeboshi). It contains salt, ume plums (related to apricots), shiso (perilla/beefsteak plant) and water.

Is there a safe brand of this available somewhere? I'd love to get some. I grew up eating umeboshi (not just that, but a lot of it. lol) and I would love to try the plum vinegar. I'm willing to buy online since I don't have a local asian food source.
