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!

    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      I agree completely with cyclinglady! Do you even know that there is such a thing called silent celiac? No symptoms at all but the villi are damaged.  I see you joined in 2009. Why? Is that when your brother was diagnosed? IMHO you need to do a lot of research & find out just exactly what you're risking. 
    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      What?  Be sure that next endoscopy tests you for lymphoma (cancer) as well!   Seriously.  You need to do some research as your knowledge of celiac disease is lacking.  Did you fail the entire celiac panel?  Or did your doctor/insurance save cash and just order the very good (but does not catch all celiacs) TTG IgA?  You have a family history, a positive biopsy, what more do you need?  You do realize that this is not about just giving up gluten, don't you?  We just had a member join this year who was told years ago that her tests were "inconclusive" and that she now has suffered with lymphoma (cancer)? Ugh!   Endoscopy in 10 years?  Who would even wait 10 years?  This isn't colon cancer and polyps!   Are you talking about a colonoscopy?  Are you even sure you had an endoscopy?   Be sure you have your bones checked too.....and forget the breath.  You might not have any teeth and implants will be out since your bones will be compromised. Sorry, if I come on strong, but when I was diagnosed I had no tummy issues.  A few months later, my bones began breaking.  I was undiagnosed for a long time because of mis-informed doctors.  At least it was not stupidity on my part.   So, I urge you to research this disease more!  Hopefully you'll ward on another autoimmune disorder by remaining gluten free.  Find what celiac blood tests were actually taken!  Even if you do not think you have celiac disease, something has caused villi damage -- like a parasite, milk, or something......even more sinister! Good luck!  
    • Really, Really Foul Breath Post-glutening?
      In addition to eating gluten-free, I attribute the following to knocking out my bad breath once and for all: 1. SmartMouth Activated Mouthwash (this is what really did it for me!) 2. Flonase Nasal Spray 3. Dr. Tung's Tongue Scraper 4. The obviously brushing and flossing twice daily (goes without saying).    
    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      I went in for an endoscopy to find out if something from my stomach/intestine was causing my bad breath.  A biopsy during that procedure revealed that I had Celiac.  I thought it was strange since I ate pizza, pasta, and other bread/gluten items almost every day without issue, so I decided to confirm the biopsy result with a blood test. I took the blood test twice (once on a high- and once on a low-gluten diet) and it came back negative both times.  I just assumed someone at the earlier biopsy lab must have messed up my analysis or accidently mistaken someone else's biopsy for mine, but after reading this thread it seems like my initial biopsy might have been correct all along. My doctor suggested doing another endoscopy, but I didn't want to foot the bill for that.  Also, my older brother has Celiac which was confirmed by both a biopsy and blood test. Eating less gluten did seem to help a little with my bad breath, but SmartMouth Activated Mouthwash along with Flonase nasal spray and a Dr. Tung's tongue scrapper really did the trick to solve the bad breath issue. I'm just assuming I have Celiac and eating "gluten conscious" until my next endoscopy in about 10 years. If that biopsy comes back positive again, then I'll be strictly gluten-free.  I'm just glad I don't have many symptoms.      
    • Anxiously waiting
      You might ask your doctor if they have a standby/wait list Kal.  Some do that and then they can fit in people if there are cancellations or no-shows.

      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.
