Now, he could be intolerant to soy and/or lactose (sugar protein found in milk), which isn't uncommon.

Which brand of soy milk do you use?

My son is allergic to both soy and dairy. I have seen soy flour used in gluten -free products at the market. I think the gluten comes in by how the soy milk is made/fermented. Soy can produce a lot of gas...
My Dr. also said it was uncommon too for my son to be allergic to both then after the delayed rast and 2+ years of soy milk he turned out to be more allergic to soy (ratings are 1(low) 4(veryhigh)www.enjoylifefoods.com has dairy-free soy free,gluten-free,nutfree foods The cookies are really good.Bagels too

soy is definitely not a gluten. soy isn't even a grain (and the gluten we react to is the gluten found in four (if you include oats) grains. (soy is a legume.) he could have an entirely different intollerance or allergy to soy, however. it may be possible to find a brand of soy milk that uses barley as a filter (like Rice Dream), which could also be a problem, but I can't think of a brand of soy milk - off the top of my head - that does have gluten.
