Betty Crocker Devil's Food Cake Mix--Soy Free
0

6 posts in this topic

While browsing the grocery aisles the other day I noticed Betty Crocker gluten free products have a new design on the box.....I loved their Devil's Food cake mix when it first came out, but then they switched the flour mixture  to a formula that included soy flour, which I am allergic to. Out of curiosity I picked up the box and read the ingredients.......no more soy!! The box does say "may contain soy ingredients" but I've never had an issue with many products that contain the words "may contain xxxxx". I live at 4,000 feet and never had a problem with this product coming out perfect every time. BC is also now selling an all purpose rice flour blend. I'm so tired of cooking everything from scratch because of my food allergies, that I am now leaning toward buying convenience mixes.....at a reasonable price. I also love the King Arthur brand, but BC often has coupons which I always use. Kudos to Betty Crocker.

I always am astounded by the amount of things soy is in. I consider myself beyond fortunate that I can get away with lecithin without ill effects, but the tradeoff is that I can't do the oil which doesn't have to be listed as an allergen. <_< I've never tried any BC products because of the soy but this is great news. While they're always a little pricey, I have seen coupons so if I can snag a coupon I may grab a box or two to try and see what I think. I do usually prefer baking from scratch but lately I've just become so freaking sick of being in the kitchen that the thought of going into it for a glass of milk seems like being there too long. :ph34r:

I went back to my local supermarket to buy another Devil's Food  cake mix...be very careful....an old box was on the shelf and I almost accidently purchased it. The newer gluten and soy free box has a photo of a cupcake on the front......the old mix has a photo of a slice of cake on it.

 

I can get away with eating soy lecithin in small amounts, but soy flour bothers me if I eat it more than 2 days in a row.

I, too, was thrilled to see it no longer has soy flour. I had a very adverse reaction last summer that lasted for a couple of days. we have been eating a cake I made with lemon icing yesterday. So good!

    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Pretty sure that's what I had for a while, adrenal fatigue.  I started getting some selenium in my diet to fix it.  It made a big difference.  Brazil nuts are great for selenium, just don't overdo them because selenium isn't eliminated quickly.  It can build up to toxic levels if overdone.
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      I definitely had more energy, I was virtually bedridden beforehand, but it also felt like something of a serotonin boost, and, bizarre as it sounds, my senses seemed heightened. I felt great and I didn't know why. 
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      i am wondering if those who get that initial "rush" of a day or twos relief of symptoms are "flying" on adrenaline?  wonder about adrenal fatigue?  not sure that is considered a real thing in western medicine... just a thought.  and you return of sym suggest a glutening.  Anything new in the diet?  even a new package of an already  checked product?  soap and shampoo need to be checked, or used very carefully.  is wife still eating gluten?  if so make sure sh is not bringing it to you.  kisses are nice, but make sure she brushes first, lol skipping products that are "made in shared buildings"  for at least a while. take the B12 on an empty stomache
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Excellent. The chances are your body won't absorb some of this however so get as many good B sources in your diet as possible in addition. Get some sunshine as well, I know it does rain sometimes in Melbourne but believe me on that score you do a lot better than the poms.   Try and note these positive things, it's so easy when you're down to forget them. There will be more to come. Imagine yourself climbing a mountain. There are points at which you have to travel laterally or even down in order to follow the right path but your overall trajectory is upwards. You're actually lucky to have found it now at 28 with so much time ahead for healing and enjoying the fruits of it.  For me the gluten reaction is the initial cause of the depression but once that's removed it doesn't automatically lift like magic. Whilst the brain fog lifted soon on gluten-free diet, (there was a physical perceptible feeling in my head whilst I had that, a kind of thickness sort of like wearing a diving mask all the time that distances you from the world), the longer term depression isn't so easily shifted. I think this is because there are negative pathways that have been reinforced over many years. That's what living in a constant state of anxiety can do. It wrecks your self esteem which isn't magically repaired as your diet changes, sadly! As my physical symptoms lifted but I still felt depression, if on a different level, I realised I'd have to heal my mind as well as my gut. So I'm currently seeing a counsellor and it is helping. Not there yet though Yes I also get this and the mental side for me is also by far the worst side of it. I used to think I may die every time I got the chest pains but that wasn't as bad as feeling like shit 24/7 or having to fake a good time when feeling awful inside.  The single best thing about realising my gluten problem was that it explained that the underlying cause of that depression and anxiety was physical, not a defect of character, just some bad luck in the makeup of my gut and immune system. Hope that knowledge helps you also, when the anxiety strikes recognise it for what it is. A misdirected fight or flight response to an internal attack on your body.  Have a look at some cognitive behavioural therapy techniqes for challenging negative thoughts, that may be helpful? CBT has a very good success rate here in UK, better than anti depressants or talking therapy I think and it focuses on the practical,.  As you realise there's a load of bulls**t in society about how we view and discuss mental health. Don't buy into it. A lot of 'strong' people out there are simply bottling up their suffering through misguided pride. If people stigmatise you they're doing you the favour of letting you know they're not worth bothering with.  I got a lot of support on here when I was in your position and I'm sure you will too. I wish you the best of luck and I'm sure you'll be seeing more improvements in the weeks and months to come.      
    • Celiac - How many symptoms can there be?
      As you doubtless know now, there are so many ways celiac can present, here's as big a list as I could find online. It would probably be quicker to list what isn't a factor For me personally, nausua, check, left sided back hip pain (my laymans theory here is that celiac is affecting the sciatic nerve which runs from lower back down leg) , check, chest pain also - but for me this comes in short bursts more I guess like heartburn - I thought I was having heart attacks... Check to the rest too... And, for what its worth, other things like being prone to bronchial infection oh hell yes.  I'm currently in the glutened / affected by something group myself so I can only share the advice I've been given. Start a food diary and see if you can track down anything diet related that may be affecting you. Eat as clean as you can, ease up on alcohol, just try and give yourself the best chance of recovery. Have a google of 'heal my gut' diet tips too, you're in the recovery phase at the moment. All the best, at least there's comfort in knowing you're not alone!   Matt

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
