Ack Soy :(
Posted 19 October 2010 - 07:23 AM
Why oh why do I react even worse to soy than I do to gluten? And don't get me started on oats, I had a whole night episode a few days after oats. After gluten challenges a few months ago, when I was trying to confirm my gluten-intolerance, I had the usual sore stomach/nausea and the runs a few days later, but it didn't last several hours like this....
Bleh.... At least casein doesn't seem to be a problem for me (touch wood). It's bad enough avoiding gluten - now I have to scrutinize all the "gluten-free" stuff as well for soy.
July 2010 - Blood and biopsy -ve, went gluten free after testing which completely relieved symptoms
July 2011 - 1 year gluten free, food intolerances (Chicken, eggs, olives, goat milk) gone!
2012 - Soy no longer a problem

I react more strongly to soy too. I swell up like a puffer fish and I'm sore and bloated for a really long time. Longer than if I had been glutened. I also get major headaches.
All my foods have to be gluten, soy and lactose free. I can tolerate some casein. Here are some things I've found that meet those requirements:
Udi's breads, muffins, etc.
Kinnikinnik's breads, bagels, etc.
Tinkyada brown rice pasta
Glutino crackers, pizza crusts
Foods by George brownies
Many of Amy's frozen foods
Lay's potato chips
Cape Code potato chips
These items have soy oil which in small amts doesn't bother me:
Bell & Evan's frozen breaded chicken breasts, fingers, nuggets
Starfish frozen breaded halibut, cod, haddock
If I think of more I'l post them.
p.s. how could I forget - many of the Katz bakery items too

Food Should Taste Good chips, but not all are soy-free. Read the labels.
Food For Life brown rice wraps. There was a recall on some of their other products recently, but not these wraps. Not sure what to think about that though. I plan to email them and ask about it.
Mission corn tortillas
Baker's Secret 100% cacao baking squares.
Lundberg rice cakes
Organic or natural peanut butters, but read labels of course.
Planters peanuts, read labels, not all are ok.
Tempt Hemp milk
Wylde pretzels, but they are so tiny I don't buy them.
