Need gluten free alternative to hoisin sauce

Have been searching for a gluten free alternative to hoisin sauce with no luck so i am now trying to determine what the flavor profile of hoisin sauce so I can substitute. Is it just a derivative of soy sauce and would gluten free soy sauce work or are there other flavor nuances here that i should be aware of in making substitution?

It depends what you are using it for, but Hoisin Sauce has many flavours in common with barbeque sauce, so you could substitute a gluten-free barbeque sauce, and maybe add some Chinese five spice to that.

In addition to gluten free tamari, I would add some Chinese Five Spice, some honey, maybe a little fresh ginger and or garlic and then cornstarch to thicken it to a hoisin sauce consistency. I experimented a little trying to achieve the same flavor profile in my recipe for Curry Chicken, Kale, and Green Apple Manapua on this site.

Premier Japan makes a gluten-free Hoisin sauce.
