Wegmans sushi made without gluten

Wegmans announced Monday that all sushi varieties sold in its stores are now made with no gluten containing products.  

Wegmans worked for two years to make it happen.

"We and our supplier partners worked hard for this and it came together only over time," said Chef John Emerson, Wegmans director of sushi and Asian cuisine who spearheaded the effort. "But now, we're proud to say that we offer sushi of outstanding taste and freshness that also happens to be made with no gluten-containing ingredients." 

Kikkoman, the international company best known for its soy sauce, developed a gluten-free soy sauce for use only in sushi bars at Wegmans stores.

About 3 million Americans have celiac disease.

For those with celiac, eating foods that contain gluten - a protein in wheat, rye and barley- triggers an autoimmune response that damages the lining of the small intestine.

Up to 10 percent of the population has a non-celiac form of gluten sensitivity that can cause digestive discomforts and other symptoms.

The only treatment for both groups is to avoid gluten completely.
