I'm thinking it could either be soy lecithin or the cane sugar in most chocolates.  For a chocolate treat, I like to buy these at a local health food store. http://www.heavenlyo...istitemsho.aspx

 

Either that, or you could try making brownies or something chocolatey at home using honey and cooca powder.  Good luck!

You can make your own hot chocolate with cocoa powder. Just add sugar and milk (I use almond milk. I've also had some very good hot chocolate with coconut milk).

 

Butterfly, my soy reactions have definitely gotten worse. I'm pretty sure I got soyed a couple weeks ago (oil?) and it took several days to settle down. Even tiny bits of lecthin will send my head spinning off. I'm holding out hope that my dairy tolerance might come back, but I have a feeling soy is gone forever...

 

But good that cocoa itself is ok!

Hang in there Peg....I used gluten-free tamari to make my last round of salmon jerky and I DID NOT GET SICK!!!!  Granted I've been soy and other thing free for over a year and a half -- but it was a huge victory.  On the flip side I tried my first legume and thought it was ok...but overdid on day 2 and lost them again -- for now.

 

Ever hopeful that I will get everything but gluten back one day :D

-Lisa

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

"LTES" a Gem :)

Lady Eowyn, raw onion does give me a headache.

Delicion - I know I do fine with something called "Gnosis chocolate." But I'll look into those as well.

GFinDC - I have been back to basics for a couple of days and do feel better.

Thank you for the Recipes GottaSki! I also have a French chocolate mouse recipe I should share. I'll probably end up buying cacao butter and a thermometer to try and make my own truffles...

Hashimoto's thyroiditis and Grave's disease (2011). It must have been a Black Friday.
Intestinal dysbiosis. Suspected damage to my vili (2012). NCGS according to my dermatologist upon seeing my post-wheat rash.

Gluten-free. Sept 2012.
Canola, almonds, soy = evil.

Grain-free, legume-free. December 2012.
No peanuts and tree nuts. February 2013.
Erb-Duchenne palsy from birth trauma.

My body is trying to kill me.

GottaSki, that's awesome! I will hold out hope, then. It would be nice not to have to worry about getting soyed, even if I can't go back to eating tofu.

 

In the meantime, it's expensive handmade organic fair trade dairy/soy/gluten free chocolate for me...

Oh, I also put some raw cocoa nibs in my cereal/gluten-free oats in the morning. Very good for you.

 

Glad you're feeling better Butterfly

I did not see anyone mentioning this but I really like Enjoy Life Chocolate. I get it at a health food store. It only contains:
Evaporated Cane Juice, Natural Chocolate Liquor (Non-Alcoholic), Non-Dairy Cocoa Butter. I melt it and mix it with vanilla coconut milk or dark chocolate almond milk to make it fudgy.

The website is here: http://www.enjoylife...ing/mini-chips/

Thank you, Zibby, and Peleg. By the way, Peleg, what brands do you get? In my case, soy seems to be a bigger issue than gluten itself (it looks like I have NCGS rather than celiac disease, thankfully), so I have even been doing fine with Michel Cluizel's chocolate, though I am not sure that would be ok for the many (or most sensitive) celiacs. Their bars have never given me a problem so far, but I haven't really had chocolate in the past few days.

There's a couple small Canadian companies whose stuff I can get at some health food stores, but you would have to see what's available at your local shops. I use Enjoy Life for chocolate chips.

And yeah, soy hits me faster/harder than gluten often, so even trace amounts can bother me.
