No. Based on standard meal recipes, not all Edo Japan menu items are gluten free. With the exception of sushi items containing crab meat, beef and spicy sauce (California Roll, House Roll and Spicy Rolls) or tempura shrimp (Dynamite Roll), all of our current sushi menu items are gluten free. All other meals/menu items, based on our current recipes are prepared using soy sauce (which is wheat based) and our signature Teriyaki sauce (which has the wheat-based soy sauce as a base ingredient). Customers can request that any meal (with rice, as noodles contain gluten), be prepared without the use of soy sauce or Teriyaki sauce due to allergies, but they must be aware that soy sauce and Teriyaki sauce are used regularly on our grill and there is no way to isolate a meal during the cooking process.
No. Edo Japan does not use peanuts or tree nuts of any kind in our meal recipes. However, some ingredients used in meal recipes may have been prepared on shared equipment and in facilities that do have peanuts/tree nuts present in their facilities. For more information, please refer to our Ingredients & Allergens Guide.
No. There are no menu items in Edo Japan restaurants that have MSG in the ingredient listing; there is however naturally occurring free glutamates in Soy Sauce which is a common ingredient used in our restaurants and is a base ingredient in our Teriyaki Sauce. We use Soy Sauce and our Signature Teriyaki Sauce (which contains Soy Sauce) during the cooking process of all our hot meals and Teriyaki Sauce usually tops all of our hot meals (can be declined at customers request). Soy Sauce Powder is also present in the Udon Soup we serve but the soup base itself does not have MSG as an ingredient. The Health Canada link which follows provides further information about MSG and naturally occurring free glutamates: http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/fn-an/securit/addit/msg_qa-qr-eng.php
Free glutamates can cause adverse reactions in certain people that have sensitivities to MSG.
Based on our current recipes, all menu items containing Teriyaki Sauce or Soy Sauce (all hot meals), would have free glutamates present in the meal.
Yes. While milk products are not present as an ingredient in Edo Japan restaurants, some ingredients used in our restaurants have milk ingredients or have been produced in a facility and on equipment that processes milk products.
