One of our support group is a vegetarian and he was told to be very careful of tofu because sometimes it contains wheat. Has anyone, else, every heard of this?

Some of the dessert tofu's have it in, I know Pete's does. Also things like Tofurkey and vegan or vegetarian tofu foods usually have tons of wheat in them but plain tofu doesn't. Best idea is still to read the label. Who knows when they will another food unaccessible to us.

flavored tofus often have soy sauce in them, and hence are likely to have gluten. *ALWAYS* read the ingredient list.

Hi

We use the extra firm organic tofu and never have a problem. We make tofurkey from scratch as with most things it's safer that way. If you wish to have a tofu with flavor just put it in a food processor (not too long) to break it down add the spice you want then press it into shape again.

Oh and if you wnat to use soya sauce the health food store carries Tamari that is wheat free

Walmart's brand of soy sauce is gluten free and very good.

I just called my favorite Tofu company, Unisoya, to double-check if their tofu has any gluten. Unisoya tofu is all gluten free, however their sausages have wheat. I have never bought their sausages, but I suspect wheat would be on the ingredient list for them anyways.

It was my first phonecall to a company about their product (there was no email), and it was awkward because they're in Quebec and the person on the phone didn't really speak English well, but he eventually got what I was asking.

I expected that the tofu would all be gluten-free, but the ingredients have something that says it's f'rom a naturally derived source', so I just thought I'd make sure.

Other than the most recent post, the other info is 6 years old. You would want to re-verify any info that old as product ingredients and manufaturing practices change.

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      The following link might be helpful for others experiencing simlar psychosomatic issues with doctors. Although it's only for psychiatrists, I think it should be for all doctors! http://www.psychsearch.net/complaints/ The neuropsychiatrist I saw might fall into this category? I can checkmark:

       Falsified medical records
       No Biological Test for "Mental Illness" (no blood, urine or other lab testing)
       Breach of Confidentiality (...if she sends my medical records to my doctor or discusses them with him. I am requesting a copy of my records from this doctor t see if she sent anything to him.)
       Physical Illness Misdiagnosed as "Mental Illness"
       I was told I have a "chemical imbalance" (without any lab tests)
       Unethical Conduct
       Unprofessional conduct
       Something else that didn't seem quite right  
    • Allergy or Preference? Waiter asks
      At my local Five Guys, I told the counter guy that I had to avoid gluten for medical reasons. I was ordering a burger with no bun and some fries. He yelled back "Allergy Alert!" and every line cook immediately changed gloves and cleaned their work space. Will I go back? You bet I will!

      The office is located in another city than where I go. There is no receptionist at the location closest to me meaning patients wait for the doctor to open her closed door to call their names for a consult. So, I would have to knock on her door which would really make her say that I'm sick since I keep writing letters AND showing up in person. The main office is too far for me to travel with road construction going on for the remainder of the year. I suppose I could mail the letter instead. But the staff is very irresponsible so it might be thrown away. The doctor probably told them that nothing needed correction in my records so ignore further requests from me. The other staff member I dealt with seemed normal, but I complained to the doctor about the staff member I dealt with today when she failed to update my phone number that I gave to her a few times (and which she said she updated), which resulted in me showing up for an appointment (I traveled a distance) one of the testers thought she canceled by leaving voicemail for phone number I no longer had. What I mean is I told the doctor that the staff member said she updated my phone number when the doctor asked me why I was there when I showed up for that cancelled appointment. Unfortunately, this staff member answers the phone most of the time. I'm sure she did what she could to make me look bad to the doctor to make her look good because I complained about her. I feel like scheduling an appointment with a psychologist to tell her what happened with this name calling. I'm sure it's against therapist code or I'd like a psychologist's feedback on this doctor's behavior. There are other patient complaints about her on the Internet how she laughs at patient's pain and suffering. I feel that's how she treated me. Update: The staff member called me back to tell me the doctor amended my report and she put it in the mail. I wonder if the doctor discussed what she said to me with another doctor who told her what she did was unacceptable in the medical field. I am hoping my report is amended or new negative comments are not added by the doctor to say I keep writing her letters or something in that regard.

      The letter I am suggesting has nothing to do with the doctor.  I would type it and walk it to the desk when are in the building for your other appointment. 
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Thanks. I'm not sure if the doctor will read another email I send and that's the way I'm told by staff to contact her. It will just confirm that I keep writing her letters although I only sent her one email about it! I already told the staff and her that I didn't want my medical records sent to any doctor's office, but I don't know if they will do it out of spite. It was scary talking to this doctor because she wouldn't listen or let me get a word in...I guess that's the reason why I feel the need to raise my voice at this office. When I requested a Lyme disease prescription from another doctor years ago before I knew I had celiac disease, this ignorant doctor told me not to come back to his office because there's no such thing as Lyme disease so only crazy people think they have it. I thought that was the worst experience I had with a doctor, but this experience was worse. I mean this neuropsychiatrist kept calling me a sick person over and over. It's so scary dealing with doctors like this. I really don't know how many other doctors may have wrote in my records that my symptoms are all in my head because celiac disease isn't real.   And my neurologist said this neuropsychiatrist was great. Maybe he says that about all the doctors he refers to patients to? I don't know if you call her personality psychopath since she appeared really nice during my consult, but she was thinking all this negative s*** in her mind at the time or different than she appeared to be.

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
