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.
