Non Dairy/non Soy Butter
0

6 posts in this topic

Since so many here avoid the common allergens, how do you find butter that is non dairy AND non soy? I need help!

All I've found is soy butter, even at Trader Joe's and all of those health food stores.

Please help...

Yep, I think if you're eliminating dairy and soy, you're out of luck on the butter front. You can usually sub oils (taking the water content difference into account) in most recipes, however.

this is a dumb question, but, hey, who cares?

If you're eliminating eggs, too, can you use those egg beaters or liquid egg substitues?

Egg Beaters are egg whites (and some additional ingredients). So unless you're only avoiding egg yolks, they're not ok. The ingredient labels on the packages are usually clear about this issue.

Ener-G makes a powdered egg replacer that contains no egg, but it may have soy, I'm not sure...

Ener-g Egg Replacer contains the following ingredients:

Potato Starch, Tapioca Flour, Leavening (Calcium Lactate*, Calcium Carbonate, Citric Acid), Cellulose Gum, Carbohydrate Gum.

*There is a note on it that says Calcium lactate is NOT derived from dairy. It does not contain lactose.

It appears that it doesn't contain soy. The product is really only useful for replacing eggs in baked goods. It wouldn't work for making omelets and such.

I checked on Spectrum, and it contains soy...darn.

The only other alternatives, assuming you're not spreading it on toast and expecting it to taste like butter is Coconut oil, which is semi-solid, or ghee, which has had the water and milk solids removed, and considered safe for those who are allergic to dairy.

I'm in the same boat, so I just forget about it and use oils or the above in cooking.

:(:(:(:(:(

    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".
