Heh, I see some people have been excited I posted “new” comics. Actually those are dreg comics that I almost posted last year, but postponed and forgot about….until they started auto-posting this week. Sorry, folks! And sorry those strips aren’t very good, I thought they’d never post at all, but that’s what happens when you totally forget about your blog.

Please keep sharing old Mimi & Eunice strips – they never go out of date!


Adverse Reaction

As expected, some people didn’t like last week’s comic strip about “allergies” to gluten in soy sauce. Guess what I found out since then? Soy sauce, even soy sauce made with wheat, contains no detectable gluten.

We sent a sample of soy sauce of the brands Kikkoman and Lima to an external laboratory to determine gluten levels. In both samples the gluten content was below detection limit of 5ppm (see report). According to a new European legislation, which will only be fully implemented in 2012, gluten-free foodstuffs should contain less than 20 ppm gluten. The FDA also proposes a limit of 20 ppm. This means that our two tested products may be considered as gluten-free soy sauce. Link

That doesn’t seem to stop adverse reactions like Mimi’s, above.
