Hydrolyzed Soy Protein?
0

19 posts in this topic

My favorite salad dressing has hydrolyzed soy protein in it and I am not sure if the is gluten-free or not. I know that hydrolyzed vegetable protein and hydrolyzed plant protein are NOT gluten-free but I can't seem to find out anything about the soy protein.

As far as I know the soy is fine.

I have always been steered away from all the Hydrolyzed rpotiens because I was told they were not gluten-free.

Just curious... what is the dressing? I only ask because the soy protien is generally used as an emulsifyer, to hold the oil and liquid together. If that's the case with your dressing, I can probably help you come up with a "make it yourself" dressing that's very similar, using other emulsifyers. If its already a dressing you make at home, you can substitute the soy protien with dijon mustard, also egg yolk or whole egg (the vinegar in dressing cooks the egg so don't worry about it being raw) and also mayonaise, or lecithin (comes granulated and is egg protien).

Hope this helps a little. :D

Hydrolyzed soy protein is supposed to be fine; it's when it's hydrolyzed vegetable protein that there is gluten. if there is a 1-800 number on the bottle, call the company and ask. good luck!

Just FYI, I was looking at soup bases today, and I picked up a product that specifically stated in the ingredients Hydrolyzed soy protien (wheat gluten) and was listed as the same ingredient. I don't know if this is all the time... but if it's in one product, its probably in others.

Here is a good and universal vinaigrette recipe. You can change the flavor by adding other ingredients or changing the type of vinigar you use or the flavor of the oil. Use roasted garlic or shallots rather than fresh, add purees like roasted red pepper or artichoke, use lemon juicein place of all the vinegar, or orange or lime juice. Add other spices as well, such as chipotle, ground bay leaf, thyme, oregano, etc.

For vinaigrette:

If your looking for Italian dressing, and don't have the time/or want to make your own another option is Kraft Also, a few of Paul Newman's products are gluten-free. You could email him, or go on his website to find out. Good luck.

Kathleen,

Just curious....what product did you find that had the listing? Everything I Have ever found shows that it is a safe food. Now Im really confused. I wonder if it's just one of those things that will always have to be verified from the manufacturer.

The product is called Minor's, its a stock/broth concentrate in the form of a paste. It's used a lot in the restaurant industry, so up here it's difficult to find in small quantities, but recently I found it in a one pound tub, and I checked the ingredients... sure enough it lists the hydrolyzed soy protien together with wheat gluten in parenthesese.

Again I'm not saying all product with soy protien are also going to have wheat gluten, I'm just saying be careful. It's never a bad idea to double check with a manufacturer, if only for peace of mind. And like I mentioned above... if it's in one product, it may be in others. At least this product clearly stated the gluten on the label.

Was a bit curious about this and a quick search found a page that shows which Minor's products ARE gluten-free.

(i get the feeling this info was added recently)

http://www.allserv.com/nutritio.htm

A few lines down it says:

NOTE: Gluten Free items in the table below are on a light green background.

SOY IS POISON < this link will explain why.

Yesterday a doc (I trust) confirmed it for me. But read this and judge for yourself. I wish someone told me this 5 years ago before this happened to me.

Soy is not a source of gluten. Soy is gluten free. Some people react badly to soy. Some say that soy is bad for everyone. Find a food source, and you can find someone, somewhere who will attest that it is bad for you:

Red meat is bad for your heart. Dairy is bad. Sugar is bad. Artificial sweeteners are worse. Wheat is bad. Fruit juice is full of sugar, so it is bad. Alcohol is bad. Corn is bad. MSG is bad. Caffeine is bad. Fish contain bad things from the water, such as mercury. Eggs have cholesterol and are bad. Et cetera.

I'm bad! :(

MySuicidalTurtle--

Just curious, did your dr. tell you this and why? My son is allergic to soy and his dr. said hydrolyzed soy protein was ok. Maybe I should question this? He hasn't been bothered by it in bouillon, but maybe something is being damaged I don't know about? Thanks.

Also psawyer--you are psooo bad :D !!!

    • I've had a range of symptoms in the last 2 months and in the past few weeks I have discovered that my TTG abs (igA) levels were 41 (my igA tests were fine). The doctor said that he is pretty much certain that it is celiac disease and I am awaiting an endoscopy to confirm it.  Before I found out that my TTG abs (igA) levels were high, I noticed that my body was reacting really badly to dairy products. I went on an elimination diet and stopped all gluten and dairy products and felt much better. I carried this on after my results and thought that I must have developed a dairy intolerance due to my celiac. 2 days ago I accidentally consumed a glass of wine which I thought was dairy free but it contained Milk. I have not had any gluten.  I am currently in the middle of a flare up. All of a sudden rashes have started to appear on my hands and my anxiety has returned (usually not a anxious person). No diarhhoea, vomiting or digestive issues. I am currently suffering from muscle twitching, rashes predominantly on hands and feet, brain fog, pins and needles/numbness on hands, feet and arms. However, I have been tested for milk allergy and this came back negative. Is it possible that it is dairy that is causing my symptoms/autoimmune reaction and could this be a reason for elevetated TTG abs (igA) levels. Or has the doctor only picked up my celiac and missing something else. If it was dairy intolerance then I would have digestive issues but I don't seem to have any. Could it be the casein protein?  Anyone been in a similar situation or can anyone provide some insight? 
    • Hello Everyone, This is my first post here and I am writing to seek help from experienced people here. I have been suffering for over 4 years now and still no where close to having a solution/ satisfactory diagnosis of my problem. My problems started in Mar 2012 with sudden diarrhea which would not go away for days. At first, I was given general antibiotics medication which would help bring down the frequency for some days and then it would come back. Since then it has been going on. I am giving a time line and the series of tests and procedures I have gone through. Would like opinion from experienced and experts here. I can send the scans and reports if required. Would really appreciate the help. Male, Indian origin Mar 2012 - onset of symptoms - multiple bouts diarrhea - spaced 3-4 weeks, bloating, weight loss (to start with I was 74 Kgs), GP managed with antibitocs and loperamide for months Dec 2012 - consulted a GI doc towards end of 2012, Colonoscopy done - conclusion was "IBS" - was advised to manage stress. use Rifaximin and immodium Jan 2013 - Aug 2013 kept moderately fine for 3-4 months ..again started getting frequent diarrhea + weight loss (was around 70 Kgs) Oct 2013 - Consulted another doc, MD - stool and blood test - Ecoli and high Eosinophil Count, medication done for 5-6 months, montinored eosinophil from nov - Mar: always kept high.. came down but then again shot up in a month Mar 2014 - Consulted another GI expert - Endoscopy and duodenal biopsy done - H Pylori and Unremarkable Villious pattern, (weight 68 Kgs) - On and Off diarrhea continued. Given: Ivermectin July 2014 - again same doc - Blood test done: High Eosinophil count,  Colonoscopy and Ileum biopsy - preserved villous architecture, features of eosinophilic enteritis; Endoscopy  + duodenal biospy again - numerous H pylori bacteria, Preserved villous crypt ratio, features of eosinophilic enteritis > conclusion: I have eosinophilic enteritis. Started on Prednisolone (steroids) Aug 2014 - 3-4 days of severe diarrhea> weight came down to 65 Kgs. Hospitalised for 3 days - continued on Prednisolonerios Sep 2014 - After 10 days only again a serious bout of diarrhea - hospitalized again - put on IV fluid for 8 days - weight 59 Kgs. Colonoscopy + biopsy done: features of superimposed c. difficile colitis, non-specific mild colitis > c. difficle test came out negative. CT Enterolysis +Scan done: mesenteric lymphadenopathy > nothing wrong acc to docs. IgA deficiency found - diagnosed Celiac - advised for Gluten free diet.   Sep 14 - May 16: continued gluten-free diet, gained weight upto 63 Kg in Jan 16, but then started losing again and came to 59 Kgs in May. No signficant diarrhea. Minor issues. June 16 onwards: Again diarrhea started, still on gluten-free diet, weight lost - 54 Kgs now. hospitalised again under same GI doc - blood test - eosinophil high, CT Enterolysis done: Showing mucosal thickening in Jejunum and Ileum; Enteroscopy (going in jejunum) + jejunal biopsy - jejunal erosions + villous blunting, marked atrophic with V:C ratio of 0.5: 1 to 0:1. HttG blood test done - Came out negative> Conclusion : No gluten exposure (how?) + Refractory Celiac disease. June - July - have been suffering from continuous diarrhea (goes off for 5-6 days and comes back, bloating, trappings in abdomen - waiting for I don't know what. On Rifaximin + Ivermectin + Codeine Sulphate (for diarrhea) I am very depressed and have no clarity on what's going on. If it is celiac, why am I not doing better on gluten-free diet. If the villous damage is still there in small intestine, then why did I kept fine for Sep - May period? HTTG - negative now but was NOT taken in Sep when I was first diagnosed with celiac. Can we trust negative HTTG now and conclude that it has come down? I am 20 kgs down from my ideal weight and still going down. Have no clue what NOT to eat to stop this. Why is eosinophil always high. Can any of you expert help me to put my case to docs in other countries? With lots of hope, Alok          
    • So, I know I'm obsessing but...... University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center website says any total IgA result over 20 won't affect the celiac test.   If this is so,  I'm still confused as to what a weak positive ttg iga means even though her result was barely in this category.  Why bother having a weak positive anyway?   I just don't get it and our doc is on vacation so I won't know what he'll recommend for another week.  I'll be finding out this week if we can see a GI without a referral. Our lyme doc (she's had lyme, may still have it, like I said it's a long story) is having her do an IgG wheat test but I don't think that has any bearing on celiac does it?    
    • Hi!  I've had good luck at the Minnesota state fair because most food booths are only doing one thing so there is no cross-contamination. For example: french fries or chocolate covered bacon or Indian kebabs.   But I live in California and I am heading to the state fair today! Does anybody have any great food suggestions that are definitely gluten-free there? Thanks, Celiac C.
    • Hi.  I have been reading your post and thinking about how my pain was around diagnosis.  It was above the belly button, I think where you are describing.  At the time I assumed I had a stomach ulcer.   I had been taking Neurofen for an ear problem and assumed it was the NSAID that had caused my stomach ulcer (which I actually didn't have, when I had an endoscopy a few weeks later my stomach was looking great! My small intestine was not!).   Going back to the pain, it was a burning feeling.   My doctor prescribed Omeprazole but it didn't touch it.   In fact I ended up with bad D. which eventually lead to me having all the tests for Celiac Disease.   I still get that pain if I eat oats (pure oats) that are supposed to be OK for most Celiacs.     I get various pains in different places in my digestive tract from time to time, but that burning pain is something I won't forget. The other thing I had that you mention was that pain between the shoulder blades.  I had that - I felt almost like someone was pushing my shoulders down.  So odd. I get palpitations when I am anemic.    I hope you get some answers soon.  It is pretty tough having to keep going from one doctor to another, but sometimes it is the only way.
