What the Heck is Gluten, Anyway?

Be honest: Do you really know what gluten is? It’s ok, we’re not judging. We know there’s a lot of confusion out there about the gluten-free craze, and the truth is there’s a lot of misinformation being spread around about gluten.

Just take a look at this quite hilarious video from Jimmy Kimmel Live where random people on the street are asked if they know what gluten is.

So, as you can see, if you don’t know what gluten is, don’t worry. You aren’t alone.

What is Gluten?

Gluten refers to a combination of proteins (prolamin and glutelin proteins, if you want to get all scientific) that exist in specific grains, such as wheat, rye, barley, and their derivatives. That means you’ll find gluten in so many different foods and drinks, including breads, pastas, pancakes, sauces, beer, cereals, and a whole lot more.

Why are People Going Gluten-Free?

The gluten-free diet has become increasingly popular over the last few years. And while you might think it’s nothing more than another diet fad, you’d be wrong. For many people, eating gluten can lead to bad results. Many have to ditch gluten for medical reasons, because they suffer from Celiac Disease and consuming gluten can cause some serious intestinal problems and a host of other issues.

What exactly happens when someone with Celiac Disease eats gluten? The gluten actually causes an autoimmune response in the person’s body. It causes inflammation throughout the intestinal tract, and it can seriously damage the small intestines. As a result, this blocks the absorption of essential nutrients in the body which can lead to very serious nutrient and vitamin deficiencies in the individual.

But what if you don’t have Celiac Disease…do you really need to go gluten-free or cut back on gluten?

It depends, but consider the following:

 

  • For every 1 person that has been diagnosed with Celiac Disease, there are 6.4 people with the disease who are undiagnosed.
  • Millions of people with Celiac Disease haven’t been diagnosed.
  • An estimated 7%-30% of people experience non-Celiac gluten sensitivity, meaning consuming gluten affects them adversely even if they don’t have Celiac Disease.

 

So, what are we supposed to do with all of this information? Does this mean you should immediately stop consuming all gluten right this moment? Probably not.

The truth is we’re still learning a lot about gluten intolerance and its effects on the body. Many people don’t need to go gluten-free. However, if you’re experiencing any symptoms like bloating, gas, irritable bowel syndrome, migraines, and other digestive issues, it might be worth trying to go without gluten for a few weeks to see how you feel. Or at the very least, cut back on your gluten some to see if you feel any different.

Remember, there are a lot of great gluten-free options out there these days. Many restaurants offer delicious gluten-free dishes for diners, and grocery stores have more gluten-free products by the day. And of course, there’s always Little Soya gluten-free soy sauce – Your Everything Sauce! Everyone loves Little Soya, whether they have gluten intolerance or not, thanks to its amazing umami flavor. Cutting back on gluten is easier than you think!

 

 

 

 

 

Little Soya’s Quirky, Convenient Fish Packets Featured in The Atlantic!

404121_510695055608436_1931764921_n

Today, The Atlantic ran a story titled “The Mysterious, Murky Story Behind Soy Sauce Packets.” As the headline implies, the story provides an in-depth look at the popularity of soy sauce as a condiment and analyzes exactly how the popular to-go packets have evolved over the years. Anyone that has seen Little Soya’s single-serve, NASA-approved, fish-shaped packets knows you can’t tell the story of soy sauce packets without talking about us.

We are incredibly honored that Tanya Basu, editorial fellow with The Atlantic, reached out to us and learned all about the unique Little Soya packaging and our out-of-this-world flavor.

“But has the American public gotten sick of soy sauce packets? Sometimes they squirt their contents in unintended directions, and they’re fairly wasteful, often dispensing too much sauce, or not enough. But in the more than 50 years that they’ve been around, little has been done to change their design,” Basu writes.

“Can soy-sauce packets be made better too? Gary Murphy thinks so. Murphy, the founder and CEO of Little Soya, is an unlikely soy-sauce pioneer with a loud laugh,” she continues.

Basu goes on to tell the story of how Little Soya came to be and discusses with Gary how Little Soya’s rich, savory flavor and gluten-free formula has made it a popular premium soy sauce in a time when more Americans are seeking out high-end condiments to “replicate the experience of eating at a restaurant.” However, the primary focus is Little Soya’s quirky, cute, convenient packaging that Basu deems “the first meaningful improvement on the classic disposable soy-sauce packet.”

“The fish is not just a cute brand differentiator but also a means of avoiding waste. Its top screws back on to save soy sauce for later,” she notes.

We encourage you to check out the full story for a whole lot more information about soy sauce packets and Little Soya. Much thanks to Tanya and The Atlantic for the excellent coverage!

Little Soya Chicken Adobo Recipe

"Chicken adobo" by dbgg1979 on flickr

“Chicken adobo” by dbgg1979 on flickr

When your humble blogger married into a Filipino family, his eyes were opened to a world of culinary delights that would change his life forever. From pancit to lechon to sinigang, Filipino food perfectly captures the colorful history and dynamic culture of the more than 7,000 islands that make up the nation. But if you had to choose one dish that highlights what Filipino food is all about, it has to be adobo.

Adobo is a ubiquitous dish in the Philippines. While it takes its name from the Spanish, the cooking style is uniquely Filipino. Locals found that cooking meat (typically chicken or pork) in soy sauce, vinegar, salt, pepper, garlic and other spaces was not only tasty, but also a good way to preserve meat without refrigeration.

While exact chicken adobo recipes can vary by region in the Philippines, I’m going to share my favorite version with you here today, and it includes Little Soya. Remember, soy sauce is one of the key ingredients in adobo, so it really influences the overall taste of the dish. I’ve found that because Little Soya is lower sodium and has richer flavor than its counterparts, it really keeps the adobo from being overly salty and enhances the overall flavor profile to take this dish up a notch.

This recipe is simple, requires only a handful of ingredients, and doesn’t take long to prepare at all. And don’t forget to serve it over a nice bed of steamed white rice!

 

Little Soya Chicken Adobo

 

Ingredients

6 chicken drumsticks

Marinade:

½ cup Little Soya gluten-free soy sauce

¾ cup vinegar

¼ cup water

½ tsp sugar

3 bay leaves

4 cloves chopped garlic

2 tsp whole black peppercorns

 

Directions

Combine all marinade ingredients. Whisk until sugar has dissolved.

Arrange chicken in a single layer in a glass baking dish. Pour marinade over chicken. Refrigerate for about 2 hours.

Place chicken and marinade into a large pot. Bring the liquid to a boil over medium-high heat.

Reduce to simmer. Cook for about 45 minutes, turning the chicken halfway through.

Ensure thickest part of the chicken is cooked to 165 degrees Fahrenheit.

Discard bay leaves.

Serve immediately over steamed white rice.

It all started during the summer when Good Housekeeping magazine’s new Executive Editor Meaghan B Murphy (follow here on Twitter here) tweeted that she wished there was a good travel-sized gluten-free soy sauce available.

Umami to the rescue! We opened Meaghan’s eyes to the amazingness of our little fishy containers, and sent her some samples of Little Soya, because tasting is believing.

Needless to say, it didn’t take long for her to become a Little Soya fan! We warned her, it’s addictive!

So, listen up because class is in session. It’s time to reveal 5 facts about Little Soya that you probably didn’t know.

 

  1. There’s a “Chef Grade” version of Little Soya—When you think of Little Soya, you probably picture our cute, convenient, one-of-a-kind fish-shaped packets (more on those later) that line store shelves across the country, but did you know that we also offer a “Chef Grade” version of our soy sauce? Our “Chef Grade” soy sauce is a little lighter in color and flavor and also a touch saltier than what comes in our infamous fish-shaped packets. That’s because the “Chef Grade” version is designed to be used as a cooking ingredient rather than a condiment. Chefs, click here to find out how you can get a free sample of our gluten-free soy sauce.
  2. Little Soya won an award for its unique packaging—One of the things that sets Little Soya apart is our unique, single-use, fish-shaped packets. Not only are they just plain cool and cute, but they’re highly functional. Unlike traditional tear-open soy sauce condiment packets that make a mess, our fish-shaped packets are leak-proof, resealable, and easy to use. That’s why Little Soya was a 2012 sofi Awards Silver Finalist for Outstanding Innovation in Packaging Design or Function.
  3. It’s not just Asian restaurants that are using Little Soya—Soy sauce and Asian cuisine go hand in hand, but Little Soya isn’t just preferred by Asian-inspired chefs.

In fact, about half of the restaurants using Little Soya are a mix of American, BBQ, Mexican, Peruvian, Italian, and Indian restaurants.
  4. Little Soya has become a popular cocktail ingredient—It’s no secret that Little Soya can elevate just about any dish, but you might not know that our gluten-free, less-sodium soy sauce is also a featured ingredient in some of the tastiest cocktails you’ve ever had. From the Michelada created by the geniuses at Houston’s The Pastry War to The Little Soya Cobbler featuring byejoe (an ultra-premium baiju, China’s most popular traditional alcohol), these cocktails prove that Little Soya really is “So Good You Can Drink It!”
  5. Little Soya is the first gluten-free soy sauce in space—Little Soya isn’t just the best gluten-free soy sauce in the world; it’s the best gluten-free soy sauce in the universe! On July 29 2014 at 6:47 pm (CDT), Little Soya made history by becoming the first gluten-free soy sauce to be launched into space.

Gluten-Free Diets for Kids

Celiac disease currently affects about 1 in 133 people. That’s roughly 1% of the population. Unfortunately, about 83% of Americans, including kids, who have celiac disease are undiagnosed or misdiagnosed with other conditions. For kids with celiac, even consuming the smallest amount of gluten can lead to big trouble, making digestion difficult, blocking nutrient absorption, and leading to a host of unpleasant side effects.

A 100% gluten-free diet is the only known existing treatment for celiac today. So, if you suspect your child has celiac disease, go see a doctor and considering the benefits of switching your little one to a gluten-free diet.

There are tons of great gluten-free recipe ideas for kids, and Little Soya’s gluten-free soy sauce is always the perfect complement to a healthy diet.

More Than Just Gluten-Free…Inspiring Creative Lunch Ideas for Kids!

Even if your child isn’t on a gluten-free diet, Little Soya’s cute little fish packets can inspire some really fun and tasty lunchbox ideas for your kids.

We really love this simple lunch box sushi recipe from Sandra’s Easy Cooking. It’s a great change of pace from the typical, boring sandwich, and a fun, tasty way for your kids to get their fruits and veggies. Add a packet of Little Soya to the mix, and your kids will be the envy of the cafeteria! (Tip: Don’t have the time or patience to make sushi? You can get pre-made sushi from your local grocery store and pack it with an ice pack in the lunch bag so it will last until lunch time. Don’t forget the Little Soya!)

Or if your kid isn’t a sushi lover, how about this neat idea from Lunch Box Blues? It’s brown rice, sausage, and soy sauce with a side of star fruit, blueberries, and a peanut butter sandwich on graham crackers. Talk about delicious!

Little Soya Soy Sauce is Launching to the International Space Station on July 24, 2014

Here is the rocket launching Little Soya into space!  The Ariane 5, ATV-5.

Here is the rocket launching Little Soya into space! The Ariane 5, ATV-5.

Remember when we told you that Little Soya had plans for worldwide domination in 2014? Well, that wasn’t entirely true. See, we decided that taking over the world and ridding the planet of bad soy sauce simply wasn’t enough. We have to think bigger. We have to go where no gluten-free soy sauce has gone before. We have to take over the entire universe! And on July 24, 2014, that’s exactly what we’re going to do.

We’re proud to announce that Little Soya was chosen by NASA and Lockheed Martin to make Little Soya the first gluten-free soy sauce in space! That’s right – Little Soya is getting launched to the International Space Station to be used by astronauts from all over the world.

Thanks to the innovative design of our little fishy packets (which earned a coveted silver Sofi award for “Outstanding Innovation in Packaging Design” in 2012), we’ve solved the annoying problem of leakiness and messiness many astronauts encounter when using traditional single-serving soy sauce packets in a zero-gravity environment.

“Our unique, resealable soy sauce packets are ideal for use in outer space because they must be squeezed to dispense soy sauce and they don’t leak,” said Little Soya CEO Gary Murphy.

A Long Journey

Now, all of this didn’t happen overnight. It all started about two years ago when our CEO, Gary Murphy, received a phone call from a Sr. Research Scientist with NASA & Lockheed Martin, stating that one of our astronauts had complained on his last debriefing that when he would open a packet of soy sauce on the International Space Station, the sauce would spew all over (much like it does here on earth). Her department had been tasked to find a solution to their soy sauce problems in space. Gary was told that an astronaut’s wife happened to see Little Soya on the shelves of a local grocery store, HEB. She realized the packaging could be ideal for use in outer space and told NASA about her discovery. Not long after, they called Gary showing interest in Little Soya’s unique packaging and functionality.

After the phone call, Gary and SVP Crystal Lee personally delivered samples out to NASA for testing. He was told the testing process would take about 6 months…

For two years, there wasn’t a peep from anyone at NASA. But finally, earlier this year, we got the call! NASA reps reached out and said they’d take a few cases of Little Soya. The rest, as they say, is history.

Mission & Launch Date Details

In T-30 days, this rocket will launch our soy sauce into outer space!

In T-30 days, this rocket will launch our soy sauce into outer space!

Be sure to watch our soy sauce blast off LIVE into outer space! You can watch a LIVE stream at www.ArianeSpace.tv

Little Soya is all set to become the first gluten-free soy sauce launched into space when it blasts off on Thursday, July 24 at 941pm EDT on the Ariane 5, ATV-5 rocket headed to the International Space Station.

“For a small but strong company like we are, it means the world to us to have a globally recognized name like NASA and Lockheed Martin choose us out of all the possibilities,” Murphy said. “That’s a major, major milestone for us. We have awesome clients, really powerful names. But who can say that their product is going to space? And it’s pretty cool to know that at this point Little Soya will be the first gluten-free soy sauce in space.”

Everyone here at the Little Soya headquarters is bursting with excitement for this historic moment.

Galactic domination is within our reach!
