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!

    • Thanks, I'll check that out. I may have to apply for my own Medicare card in order to get any kind of coeliac-testing done beyond the screen (see above post.)  No, nobody has even mentioned it. I'm unsure if my doctor knows that I do not need to use my hands to vomit, or if she knows about the involuntary vomiting.  I have a part time job at McDonald's and make around $150 per week, which is how I afford to smoke. Mostly, I spend my money on (generally gluten-containing) binge food and cigarettes. I did attempt to start saving money, but then my shifts were cut at work - which meant I had more time to study, but no money, which was kind of pointless. It's complicated. Here in Australia, cigarettes are $25 per pack. These aren't fancy cigarettes either, just your run-of-the-mill Marlboro 20s. Thanks for caring. I am trying to stop I've had the vomiting thing all my life, way before I started smoking. And no, I'm not sure. I know he had an endoscopy and the flattened villi, but I'm not sure if he got a blood test - I assume he would have done, don;t know if it was the full panel. Supposedly he has this FODMAP thing, which I'll admit that I know next to nothing about. Interestingly, people who have to follow low-FODMAP or no-FODMAP diets can't eat gluten either, so there's that. 
    • Would a coeliac screen be the same as a test for antibodies, then? I have no idea why it was even included in my list of tests. It could be my brother, or my symptoms, or both - regardless, I can't say I know too much about the testing.  It's possible that my brother has coeliac disease, I really do worry about it sometimes. He was told to follow a strict low-FODMAP diet by his doctor, and eventually my parents stopped caring. Occasionally they will remind him not to eat things like pasta, greasy foods, etc. because of his condition, but by and large they don't care. He basically just eats whatever he wants. I'm not sure if it affects him or not. However, he isn't shorter than other family members - my dad is 183cm, and my brother is 178cm at the age of 14. Our mother is 173cm.  I do think I have bad digestion, yes. I get gassy and very bloated often, as well as constipated phases (and then following that, diarrhea phases.)  I have tried to ask my mum to call the doctor to get the tests done, but I'm hesitant to mention anything to do with gluten as I know they won't believe me, solely because a good friend of mine has celiac disease. I know they'll think I'm doing it for attention, or to be trendy, when in actual fact I'm just tired of being sick and having no explanation for it other than diet. I'm positive it's not dairy, as I was vegan for a couple of months at one stage. When I went back to eating animal products, I had no issues whatsoever. 
    • He had the IgG ELISA done as well as other blood panels, fecal and saliva tests. He is on an elimination diet right now where foods that score above 0.2 are eliminated for 2-6 months depending on the score, then added back slowly after the detox period.  I am aware that there is a lot of controversy over the IgG, and I'm not here to go into that issue, but I can say with certainty that eliminating the additional foods he reacted to has seen a huge reduction in the symptoms that persisted after cutting gluten and dairy. We will be attempting to add rice back in around October, and see how he does but until then I still need a solution for a baking mix.  I tried to wing it a bit with pumpkin bread today and my attempt was okay but not great. The loaf sank a bit and was overly chewy.  So, to my original question....recipes?
    • Ask the doctor's office!  But usually you can eat right after if you feel like it.  But ask them!  Some of them will try to give you crackers, so you may want to bring some gluten-free applesauce or Rice Chex
    • I'm wondering if he doesn't have an oat problem. He was only dx'd several months ago and really shouldn't use oats for a year after dx. Just thinking out loud. I too am wondering how the rice was picked out of all those other flours to be determined to be affecting him.
