With Betty Crocker adding soy flour to their gluten-free mixes I was just curious how many celiacs/gluten intolerant people here also have to avoid soybeans in any form. It's a pretty straight forward poll, but just to clarify choose yes if you avoid any gluten-free type of soy, even if you don't avoid soybean oil or soy lectin. Choose no if you use gluten-free soy sauce and don't worry about soy in other forms at all. Obviously we ALL should be avoiding the non-gluten free soy sauce. :)

I think there are quite a few of us, at least from what I have read here on the board. It did take me quite a while to realize it was an issue for me. I thought for a long time that I was getting CC'd until I started keeping a food and reaction diary. Enterolab then confirmed my suspicions.

I voted a quick "yes" yesterday but had to run. I react to soy (even the oil) with cramping and D. I've also noticed that a soy sensitivity doesn't seem to be unusual amongst Celiacs.

While I voted no, I have no idea if I have a problem with soy or not. I do still have some issues and am still trying to figure out how sensitive I might be to a lot of ingredients.

But if given a choice among products, I would choose the one without soy just knowing it causes a lot of problems for many. For example, Earth Balance, which comes in both versions. Damn, our local Wal-Marts have quit carrying it.

Sort of. I haven't eaten any soy in about a month as a trial. No change so I assume I'm okay with it. There's nothing I particularly want to eat right now that actually contains soy so I'm just carrying on as I am. At some point, I'll reintroduce it but I want to finish my soy-free Earth Balance first. :P

My first exposure to soy after going rigorously gluten free/soy free was almost worse than a glutening. I avoid it like the plague.

My soy reaction is just as bad as a gluten reaction. No soy oil or soy lecithin for me. I also have to watch for products that are produced on the same lines as soy containing products.

I voted no but with the exception of soy lecitin and soy sauce I rarely eat any. (there's one candy made with soy flour I eat). I do avoid soy oil but that's not because of the soy. All these "modern" oils like soy, corn or canola make me sick.

When you say you eat soy sauce, it's the gluten-free kind right? Regular soy sauce contains wheat ;)

I use Tamari - one that doesn't have any warning about cc (took me long time to find it). There's not many meals left that I can eat with soy sauce anyway - I'm crossreacting to rice so it's hard to get noodles for my stir-fry. (there are one in vietnamese shop that say arrowroot in english, rice in czech and tapioca or something else in slovak, not brave enough to try those. :ph34r: They look quite yummy though.)

Have Hashimoto's so soy was out of my diet long before gluten. Several years later I found dairy gave me problems so dropped that. Then a number of years later gluten reared it's ugly head. So far I'm not noticing any other things causing issues...fingers crossed!

I've been sort of avoiding soy for years because it interferes with my thyroid meds. But now I avoid it because I read up on it and the processing makes me want to :blink: in addition to the thyroid issue.

I avoid soy - bad stomach pain, nausea, running to the loo for a whole day afterward - it's just no good for me :( Thank goodness I don't react to soy lecithin!

I realised it was soy after eating gluten-free "Ensure" - it's a powder mix with milk, soy and maize/corn proteins. Upset my stomach so badly... and I know I'm fine with milk and maize.

Then I tried soy milk that should have also been gluten-free, immediate sore stomach - I call it a "gut-punched" feeling, because I hunch over like I've been punched from the pain, hehe.

Wow, the number of people on this board avoiding soy is much higher than I was expecting. I avoid soy because hypothyroidism runs in my family and I have noticed when I eat soy my joints hurt more and I feel run down. Also soybean oil gives me migrains sometimes. I only cheat with soy lecthin in chocolate and when I go out to a restaurant. I don't worry too much about whether they cook with soybean oil--gluten free is much more important than soy free to me, but I will ask if I'm getting something like a gluten free pizza crust if it has soy flour and I won't get it. I found out the hard way that Uno's gluten-free crust has soy flour in it and so I won't get pizza there anymore. The soy flour really does me in. I'll hurt for a week after having soy flour.

I am looking suspiciously at corn right now, but soy does not seem to be a problem for me.

I try to avoid soy when I can, but can eat it (at least in small doses) with no apparent issues. Yes, I have thyroid problems, but none of the 'bad' thyroid foods ever seem to bother me.

I am avoiding as I have read several articles on how bad it really is for you as we have genetically mutated soybeans to the point where they are no longer good for you.

    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      I have a requisition for blood tests, but there is no way that I am going back on gluten. The cramps and pain is horrendous. I've only been off for a couple weeks, and I'm also doing the IgG tests, not really sure what those will show.  I have suffered with hypoglycemia in the past, and when I wasn't overweight and always dieting, I guess celiac maybe didn't rear it's ugly head... until after I went through something difficult in my life and started eating more carbs and then gained weight. I was never officially diagnosed with diabetes, but have been in the "pre-diabetes' range for a while. And I read that Celiac is either caused by PCOS or PCOS causes Celiac... not sure...  
    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      Welcome Jane! If you seriously suspect celiac disease, you should get tested (blood test), but that means you must be eating gluten.  Even being gluten-free for as little as a few weeks can impact your tests results.  Here's more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ In the meantime, it sounds like your blood sugar is wonky.  How often do you check your blood sugar?  Do you have a meter?   This is a good site that you might find helpful with your diabetes: http://www.phlaunt.com/diabetes/ I hope you feel better soon! 
    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      Hello. This is my first post. I am at my wits end at this point. I've been experiencing some pretty crazy symptoms and although I don't have a diagnosis yet, I suspect I may have Celiac. A few months ago I threw up after eating some pasta, I felt like I was going to pass out actually and it felt like I was going to die! I thought it was food poisoning..  Then I had some VERY BAD fatigue... I was driving once and I literally wanted to get out of the car and lie down on the pavement! It happened again about 3 weeks ago, I was in the store and fatigue hit me like a ton of bricks.. I had to leave!  I have been trying to lose weight so I stopped eating all wheat, bread, etc.... well what happened truly scared me. I take Metformin for PCOS/pre-diabetes by the way. Anyway, I woke up had something to eat and an hour later felt like I was going to collapse. My heart was beating so fast, thought I was having a heart attack! I went to the doctor and I nearly passed out again in the office, they gave me some sugar to bring up my blood sugar and then I felt okay. My neck feels swollen, and like there is something in my throat...  So I've been off gluten/wheat/bread/pasta..etc. for about 2 weeks. At first I felt kind of okay, hmmm... but now I am entering week 3 and I feel like I'm dying! The hunger is still bad... although not as horrendous as before stopping gluten... but the hunger just doesn't want to calm down. I eat and less than an hour later I'm hungry again.  Can someone provide some advice, thoughts, anything at this point that can help me figure out what to do next... I'm losing my mind and I feel so depressed    
    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      Okay then you have a clean grain mill & can go to town. I have only done rice in mine because I found that either my husband or myself don't really car for the consistency or flavors imparted by things like coconut flour, nut flours, pea or bean flours. Mostly the hubs is the big stick in the wheel. I like nut flours but he doesn't. For rice flours, I would say it's cheaper to mill them but it's also messier & more time consuming. I understand my NutriMill is far less messy than most millers (according to reviews) but it's still messy. In fact, I take it outside when I'm going to use it & let the mess be out there until all the grinding is done. So for me, it's a trade off & I would say about even steven.
    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      I have an omelette every  morning and mix up the filling, different stir fried veggies, spinach, avocado etc.  Super nutritious and can keep me going all day if need be.   I went awhile after gluten-free before eating cereal and now I eat it with coconut milk, Tesco's own brand is nice enough. Maybe an option if you want to experiment with avoiding dairy for awhile whilst you heal? Best of luck!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
