I questioned the Enterolab folk about this as my test showed elevated antibodies to soy. They recommended I stay away from soybean oil as well. The only thing they said that might be okay is soy lecithin because it has been so heavily "distilled" (not sure if that is the right term).

In terms of having celiac disease there is nothing wrong with eating soy. The problem with soy sauces are that many contain wheat which IS a problem on the gluten free diet. San J makes a wheat free tamari soy sauce that is great. I believe wal-mart great value brand soy sauce is also gluten free (check the label for the words "gluten free").

Many people, both celiac and non celiac, have allergies to soy. If you happen to be one of those folks, then stay away from it. Otherwise on the gluten free diet it is fine.

Well, it is generally understood that oats and wheat are similar crops that are grown, harvested, shipped, processed and packaged in circumstances that lead to each grain being contaminated with the other.

 

The claims about soy being contaminated are quite new. Soybeans are legumes, not grains, and the growing conditions do not overlap with grains to the same degree that cereal grains do with each other. The processing has little overlap if any.

 

I am reactive to wheat. I eat products containing soy on a regular basis, and have been doing so for over twelve years. No problems here. A lot of people with celiac disease have an intolerance to soy. It is not celiac disease per se; like type 1 diabetes, it often occurs in conjunction with celiac disease.

 

This is an old topic about soybean oil. Oil is a highly refined product with no detectable protein, so is not a gluten concern in any event.

In terms of soy bean flour I would proceed with caution as a fairly recent study showed cross contamination in various inherently gluten free grains.  Especially in the milled flour products of these grains.  Some flours tested above 20 ppm gluten and in one soy flour example, it tested in excess of 2000 ppm gluten.

 

Here is the abstract of the study here:

and an article on the same study here:

I know that I have reacted to soybean oil, though I don't react to soybeans when I buy edaname in the shell.

      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it.

      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

      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.
