Shalia,

I use Spectrum Naturals Canola Mayo. It's pretty good.

Thanks! Their website says a store right near me carries their products, so I'm going to go check them out. :)

I appreciate the suggestions.

I think there is some form of soy in most comercial broths - not sure what it really is but every time I try one, I get sick so I just make my own.

Watch out for those cooking sprays, they all have soy too - except for one passover one I found that is just olive oil.

I make the three ingredient peanut butter cookies that has its own thread with cashew butter, sugar, eggs, and half a bag of Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips!!! TO DIE FOR!!!

I also have given up all legumes and react to soy lechtin. And I am intolerant to the calcium they add to OJ and all the non-dairy milks.

Yeah, I'd just made a giant pot of chicken soup two days before I figured this out, and I had to throw it all away because the broth had soy in it. :(

What a waste.

I'd ask about the cookies, but I truly detest all nuts. But thank you!

From Imagine Foods' webpage:

Soy Free Products:

The following varieties only:

Organic Creamy Butternut Squash

Organic Creamy Potato Leek

Organic Creamy Tomato

Organic No-Chicken Broth

Organic Vegetable Broth

Organic Free Range Chicken Broth

Organic Creamy Sweet Potato Soup

Organic Creamy Chicken Soup

Organic Chicken Stock

Organic Beef Stock

Organic Vegetable Stock

Organic Asian Broth

Gluten Free Products:

All varieties except Organic Creamy Chicken and Organic Soy Ginger Noodle Broth.

So that Soy Free list, minus the Creamy Chicken would be OK for us. :)

(Now I know what type to buy next time... :) )

Shalia,

I'm limited, mostly due to corn. Corn is in everything, and is not required to be listed. So its very hard. Absolutely no processed foods. Plain meats, with sea salt, lemon/lime juice for seasoning. Some veggies, some fruits. And that is it. (This is all a recent thing for me...Celiac dx 8/04, was fine, then this spring, got sick again....turns out I think I have a problem with something called "lectins" which are found in high concentrations in certain (most) foods). Still working through it. It is boring and sad....but, I was SO horribly sick, and I just want to get back to being a 25 year old!

If I can do it (I used to eat anything and everything!!!!! and now, I'm down to this)---it is proof that anyone can do it.

Hope that soy free living is good to you!

Maybe it is the corn and not the soy that is my problem with broths then. I still make my own - just works better.

Wow. I am *so* impressed you do that.

But then again, people seem impressed by gluten-free living, and if I look back and realize I had no real life at all, it doesn't seem like as much a "sacrifice". Maybe you feel the same about corn?

I keep making mistakes w/ soy, though. I'm not used to the new label reading, and I keep buying stuff i can't eat. I'm so frustrated. *sigh*

It'll take time, I know, but i want results now. ;)

Most enrichments in milks (dairy and non-dairy) are put into either a corn or soy carrier, which could be why you react to them. Same is for calcium added to OJ. Finding unenriched milks isn't easy as the only unenriched non-dairy milks I know of are rice or soy based, and the rice one has gluten.

Broths are corn magnents. Imagine broths are good though, and I love their soups.

Simply V,

So if I were to call the manufacturer of the OJ fortified with calcium would they be able to tell me if it was soy or corn that the calcium was with?

They should. The soy information would probably be accurate since govt requires it to be labeled, so they should be accurate with the yes or no on soy. However, from experience I know that they're not good at corn or corn derivatives. I react to even the smallest drop of anything made from corn.

For example, Coca Cola has insisted that their Simply Orange juice line are corn-free. However I know both I and a corn allergic child reported reactions to the product. I don't know where the corn is in the product and Coca Cola insists its corn-free. *shrugs* So guess I won't ever know.

    • Is an Endoscopy necessary?
      Stool test are not considered valid for diagnosing Celiac disease.  I am surprised the doctors schedules an endoscopy based on that.  
    • gluten free and celiac worsens
      Vitamin deficiencies may delay healing. Ask your doctor to test for deficiencies!  Many Celiacs have poor absorption for an extended period of time and their vitamin stores get depleted.  Some vitamins can't be stored and must be absorbed every day. Yet with poor absorption, eating enough to make up for a deficiency is very difficult.   Vitamin deficiencies can cause other health problems.  CyclingLady had anemia  due to a vitamin B12 deficiency.  I had a niacin deficiency that caused pellagra.  A deficiency of vitamin D causes depression.  Vitamin A deficiency causes nightblindness.   Check with your doctor!  
    • Is an Endoscopy necessary?
      I recently had lab tests and an endoscopy done. My fecal anti-gliadin test came back at 380 units (normal is less than 10 units) but my endoscopy was clear (negative for Celiac's). My GI told me I had non-Celiac gluten sensitivity. Eliminating gluten from my diet has helped tremendously. I read that sometimes the endoscopy can be wrong; should I worry about this? As as a result of all this, I had my children tested too. Their fecal anti-gliadin test results were 115 units (5 years old) and 40 units (20 months old). Their pedi GI scheduled an endoscopy, but is an endoscopy really necessary? What is the benefit of knowing if it's Celiac's or just gluten sensitivity if they will already be eliminating gluten because of my diet? I'm trying to inconvenience my kids as little as possible while still gaining an accurate diagnosis. 
    • Coping with gas!?
      Activated charcoal capsules might help.  Try avoiding dairy products and cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower) because they cause a lot of gas to be produced during digestion.  Charcoal chemically absorbs some of the gas.   Hope you feel better soon.
    • Coping with gas!?
      Hi everyone,  I hope you're all having a better Tuesday than me :P. So after nearly 2 years of knowing that I am most likely Celiac, I have narrowed down my reactions to gluten into three categories. 1. When I realize I accidently ate a significant amount of gluten. Symptoms are pretty immediate and almost identical to the stomach flu- vomiting, terrible stomach pain, body aches, lower back and knee pain, headache and stiffness, diarrhea. This will usually last about 24 hours before I can start trying to eat food again. 2. When I realize I ate a small amount of gluten (i.e. a hidden ingredient in something). The most prominent symptom here is a burning pain in my lower abdomen.  3. When I know I must have eaten something off but cannot identify it. This is usually a more mild version of 1 and 2. Mostly nausea, tiredness, stomach discomfort, and a ridiculous amount of terrible smelling gas.  Today is a number 3 day. It has felt like my stomach has been constantly churning all day. I keep on feeling like I'm finally going to poop but then it's just gas. Just like the rest of my symptoms, I have absolutely no idea what to do for this! Are there any products you guys could recommend for settling my stomach and relieving the gas? Also, if you have any suggestions for #1 and 2 I would so gladly appreciate it! Doctors have been thoroughly unhelpful with symptom relief. "Just don't eat gluten" is their suggestion. If only they knew how it feels to get glutened... Thanks guys! Kristen

      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.
