Many products contain soy lecithin. Is this a gluten-based ingredient? Do soy derivatives in general contain gluten? What about emulsifiers?

Lecithin is a fatty substance. Gluten is a protein. There is no gluten in soy, but many people who cannot tolerate gluten cannot tolerate soy, either. I know that many people who are allergic to soy are allergic to the soy protein and can actually eat products that contain soy lecithin.

If you suspect you may have issues with soy, you should probably try eliminating it and see what happens. You may be able to tolerate lecithin but not soy protein.

There is a good easy-to-understand explanation of emulsifiers here: http://www.foodaddit...mulsifiers.html

Yes, I agree. I also have seen references that soy can also cause villi damage, in some people, but it is not gluten. I can't tolerate any form of soy.
