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... :) )

I like Imagine Foods broths. I have used them, just wondered if I missed something.

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.

    • Here's another thing.  Feeling deprived?  Order two of the same item.  I was hungry by the time dinner arrived! 
    • The doctors just made me feel like I was crazy because they did not have a clue of what was wrong with me. I did a stool test (positive) and I did a genes test (positive for two gluten sensitive genes, one in each chromosome).  Blood test are not so foolproof, if you read the comments/experiences in such topic you will see the problems. Biopsy can give a false negative if taken from an undamaged area. If you have medical problems that go away once on a gluten free diet then gluten is the problem. The medical establishment profit from managing your medical problems and big pharma makes money by pushing pills so we need to be careful because they won't benefit if a gluten-free diet solve your problems. Since I started a Gluten free diet I have been free of the following: (all related to Celiac)  Irregularity, Intestinal noise, Irregular stool, Tooth enamel defects, Rash in upper arms, Abdominal swelling, depression, fatigue, irritability, lactose intolerance, 
      loss of memory, dandruff, uncontrollable bladder, suicidal thoughts, unable to sleep, Canker sores/ Mouth ulcers, high blood pressure, and probably others that I did not realize. I was at the end of my rope, thanks to Google and the people that are able to talk about this I was able to get my life back. I am passionate about this because I know how bad its can get. 
    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)   Oh, I checked your ship.  You must eat in the diningroom if you have special dietary needs.
