    Those With Soy Intolerance: What Do You Think?

    I've been doing a few elimination diets to try to pinpoint food issues. I took a test and I will get the results back on 5/30, but I wanted to be proactive and test foods on my own before hand. (Note: I am aware that the results are apparently inaccurate, that is partially why I decided to start elimination diets on my own)


    I seem to have an issue with yeast and, I believe, soy as well. I've always tried to avoid soy...even before I was diagnosed...for multiple reasons, one being that after drinking soy milk I noticed a faint scratchy/itchy feeling in my throat...but a few staples in my diet have soybean oil: Sabra hummus, Progresso Lentil Soup, and Minute brown/wild rice mix. I have noticed minor stomach issues and now some skin issues after eating all three, but I never really noticed there was soy in them. I had been eating the soup and rice for so long that I didn't even think of soy once I realized they were gluten free...and the hummus is a newer edition to my diet. (Luckily though, Tribe hummus is soy free)


    My question is about SunButter. I have an issue with yeast and I came up as allergic to peanuts on an allergy test (blood test) so I avoid them (although I don't believe i am truly "allergic", I avoid them anyway) so I have been looking into almond butter and sunbutter. I like the sunbutter better, but I started noticing some cramping after eating it. It's gluten free, and it claims to be soy free...but here are there statements on soy:


    Does SunButter contain soy?

    Although soy is not an ingredient in SunButter, the sunflower kernel is roasted on equipment that also roasts soy. There is a cleanout process between the two. 

    What are natural mixed tocopherols?

    This is a natural preservative from a soy based vitamin E where there is NO soy protein.  The protein has been removed.



    This is the only reason I can think of for having a reaction to the sunbutter...the phantom soy. It seems there would be no soy in the product - but I have no idea about sensitivities, or if food can easily be cross contaminated by soy as it is with gluten. Basically, I'm asking if people with a known soy intolerance or allergy would feel safe eating this product. It seems like there should be no issue with soy. I really like the product, but something seems to be bothering me with it. There aren't many ingredients,'s just sunflower seeds, dehydrated cane juice, salt, and the mixed tocopherols.
