Soy Lecithin Test?
0

11 posts in this topic

I had a big enough problem w/ soy that I haven't wanted to even TRY soy lecithin, tho I've heard of many for whom soy is off-limits & soy lecithin is fine, since it's not supposed to have any soy protein in it.

Yesterday I found a vitamin I wanted to take but rejected it due to soy lecithin.

My question is this:

Does anyone know of a Gluten-free Casein-free product w/ a LARGE amount of soy lecithin in it?

(I have seen that I can buy a bottle of the stuff, but I'd rather actually eat something)

I just don't want to do the test w/ something that has such a minute amount as to not cause a reaction, leading me to think it's ok, only to find out much later I should've stayed away from the lecithin.

Thanks!! :)

I suppose you could add a bunch of the granules to something, like a smoothie. But I wonder if there might be a difference in any reaction between the GMO and non-GMO variety.

Hi Tom--

I've never seen anything that has more than a very small amount of soy lecithin....it's always one of the very last ingredients I think because of what they use it for (emulsifying).

I think the only way to try a bunch of it would be to buy it separately. :)

I would have to agree with Patti, soy lecithin is usually used in products in a small quantity.

You can buy a package of soy lecithin granules in bulk at the health food store for around $1

Ahhhhhhhh yes!! Great idea. :)

That'll probably be the way to go.

I wonder what I'll put it in. A little when I make salad dressing comes to mind, tho I emulsify just fine already, thank you.

Maybe I can just test it straight.

Have you tried it yet? I'm curious how your experiment turned out!

I have tried soy lecithin and had a reaction to it. I have psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, and coeliac. I started taking the soy lecithin as I thought it might help the psoriasis and my feet are burning and my toes are inflamed. I was also taking flax seed. Anyone have any information on these products as I don't think I have eaten anything else to cause this reaction. My psoriatic arthritis is normally stable as long as I stay completely gluten-free.

:huh:

I forgot to say I had stopped dairy and started taking soya milk without any bad reaction.

Well, there seems to be a few variables here. The advice of many is to try only one new thing at any given time, and wait several days to see how you feel. Any one of the things you've been trying recently might be a culprit. On the lecithin, I guess I'd suggest trying sunflower lecithin (unless you are allergic).

Also, make sure the soy milk is gluten-free. Some products say gluten-free even when there's a small amount present, so it's always a good idea to look over the label carefully, and also check the company website and/or email them.

Are you taking any supplements? I'm sure there are a number of things which can help with burning feet. Here's the first thing that came up on Google for burning feet:

Try using PAM cooking spray. I think soy lecithin is the second ingredient listed on the label.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
