What Gluten Free Chocolate Products Do Not Contain Soy
0

16 posts in this topic

I have found so many gluten free chocolates - but everyone I have found has some form of soy included in the ingredients. Can you recommend to me some chocolate that is gluten plus soy free? I am so a chocoholic and I am no longer able to tolerate the many foods that have soy in combination to the chocolate.

Thanks for your help!

Enjoy Life makes some soy-free chocolate chips for baking and soy free chocolate bars: http://www.enjoylifefoods.com/

You may also want to look at some high-end organic dark chocolates. I know I saw someone post a few companies that make organic dark chocolate with not much more than cocoa but I don't recall the names. They were really pricey though.

I also really enjoy chocolate coconut milk ice cream made by Turtle Mountain. It's soy free as well as dairy free: http://www.purelydecadent.com/products/purely_decadent_Coconut_Milk_Chocolate.html

We are also dairy-free and the 2 brands we buy are Enjoy Life (already mentioned) and Terra Nostra. Not all of the Terra Nostra Ricemilk Choco bars are soy-free though. Stay away from the truffle filled one. It has soy.

Any idea if the Purely Decadent is gluten free? It doesn't say so on the label and there is "Natural Flavoring" in all the ones I was checking out today. Enough doubt to make me at least try to find out. Sure would love it if it was gluten free as well as soy and dairy free.

Thta's strange. The last time I had it, it also said it was gluten free on the seal where it now just says soy free and dairy free. I did a search on their site and found this chart: http://www.turtlemountain.com/products/TM_Products_GlutenFree.pdf

Which shows that the chocolate is gluten free (along with several other flavors). But if you are really worried you might want to e-mail them and make sure that chart is up to date. I swear it used to say gluten free on the label where is says soy free and dairy free.

Michel Cluizel, Theo, and Castelain are some soy (and gluten) free chocolates. Where you can find them depends on where you leave. I have ordered chocolate from ChocoSphere (online retailer) in the past and they were great!

I went to the store and found the purely decadent ice creams. They did not have the chocolate coconut milk one but all the others they did have did contain soy :( I read each label for the other flavors....boo hoo!

like chocolate ,lol, the taste is excellent but they do have a bit of a chalky texture,probably from the cocco,, my daughter suggested using bakers chocolate instead of cocco but I havent checked to see if it is soy free yet.

The Baker's brand unsweetened chocolate is soy-free and dairy-free. It is 100% cacao.

    • Gluten withdrawal. It's real. I agree with what cstark said but I call it gluten withdrawal. Your body really does get "addicted" to gluten and when you go gluten-free, then the body has to cope with the withdrawal of a substance it was used to getting on a regular basis even though that substance was killing you. It isn't much different than drug addiction & the withdrawal process from that.  It sucks, I know but I promise it will get better. Rest as much as you can, drink tons of water, eat well cooked foods to ease the strain on your villi. Bone broth - home made - is a great healer of the gut & very gentle on it as well as being extremely nourishing. Just google how to make it. {{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}
    • Push for the endoscopy.  My GI said at the initial consult that he didn't think I had celiac but wanted to do the scope to "rule it out"  When he saw me immediately after the endo, while I was still in recovery, he saw enough damage to change his position and sure enough the biopsy came back positive.
    • Your body has been used to ingesting and has been coping with the gluten in its systems.  DON'T PANIC because your body is doing it for you.   Seriously now, the medical field has a technological term defining when a system is used to working a certain way/routine.  When that is either disrupted or changed, it could take a while for the body adjust to a different way of doing things.  Another factor in the increase in symptoms could possibly be that your body is starting to "clean house".  It's trying to get rid of the amounts of gluten hiding out in all its nooks and crannies.  It is going to be a long term process.  It's like cleaning out a vacuum hose or other household item that is just caked with gunk.  The first cleaning gets rid of a large portion of the gunk and ick.  The subsequent cleanings gets rid of more and more ick but in lesser amounts. I thought I was going to go crazy those first few months, but things are a lot better now. (I am about 10 months gluten free).  I still have moments of brain fog and even episodes, but my body is getting closer (and more used to)  to having a cleaner "household item".  I know it's tough at first with the increased onslaught of symptoms, but hang in there.   You may want to keep a journal of all that you ingest or come into contact with for a time to track anything that could exacerbate symptoms.  (For me, my episodes are chemically triggered as well.)  If for some reason a few months down the road, you still have large amounts of symptoms it would be a good idea to visit your GP again just in case there something else that is going on.  
    • I would love some help! After 20ish years of being misdiagnosed with IBS, I was diagnosed with celiac disease (positive blood test for tTG IgA and positive duodenal biopsy) ~ 6 weeks ago. Of course I've gone completely gluten free, and I've been crazy paranoid careful not to ingest any gluten. I've also completely avoided all oats (even certified gluten free) and cut out lactose (due to transient lactose intolerance... because I don't have villi) . But now I feel WAY WORSE. I've had abdominal pain every single day, which ranges from mild aching to severe 10/10 laying on the floor crying and vomiting pain. I understand that it takes a long time to get better, but why would I get so much worse? My best guess is SIBO, but I can't imagine that it could cause such extreme symptoms, can it?  So my question to you fine folks is: did this happen to anyone else? Have you gotten sicker after you changed your diet? Is this normal?  For arguments sake, lets assume that I did not ingest any gluten to cause these symptoms... Thank you for your help!
    • Thanks very much Cyclinglady. Yes, it is Kaiser. I doctor said the GI think it is unlikely to be celiac deisease (he did not say how he came to this conclusion), but he would be happy to do an upper endoscopy for me. I did some look up online, this procedure should be low risk. Still feel a little hesitate while reading the potential risks :(.
