does soy lecithin and soybean oil bother you? I was pretty sure I had read somewhere that soybean oil and lecithin are NOT suppose to bother people with soy allergy, but I am sure both bothers me. Maybe I am wrong, and that soybean oil is also bad?

Thanks!

Soybean oil absolutely makes me dizzy within 10 minutes of ingestion. I do not have an allergy to soy, just intolerant because of the gluten/casein/soy connection.

I can now handle the soy lecithin (in chocolate - maybe that's why :P ) but not the soy bean oil.

huh, interesting. You know I think the thing I'v learned the most is: nothing is absolute. What works for one person doesn't always work with the next.

Lecithin doesn't bother me, I can tolerate the oil once in a while but not too many times in a row.

I can have the oil once in a while and not too much. I do my best to avoid it. I'm not sure if lecithin bothers me or not because I avoid it too. Chocolate gives me major heartburn and that's the only thing that I see soy lecithin in alone that I could try for an experiment.

Soy oil bothers me and I avoid it like the plague, but I refuse to give up chocolate...so I say that I can tolerate lecithin!

I don't know for sure, but that's my story for now.

I absolutely avoid the oil. Just a few Tostitos will give me that stabbing pain. I will occasionally allow small amounts of the lecithin, usually only for the sake of convenience. I drank those Boost protein shakes every day when I first went gluten-free but had to drop them because of the soy lecithin.

As for chocolate... Enjoy Life make allergen free bars called Boom Choca Boom. They make milk and dark. The dark tastes more like real chocolate... the milk tastes like a really cheap hollow Easter bunny :(
Ghiradelli is also an option: the higher the cocoa percentage, the lower the amount of other ingredients. I stick to 80+%.

I don't get Boom Choca Boom here but I do eat Lindt 70% which has no soy lecithin. Never eat anything under 70% because those are the ones that require the emulsifiers. But even some of the higher cocoa percentages do have soy lecithin and I have been known to indulge. However, there was a hug box of chocolates passed around several times at our opening night of bridge for the year last night, and I resisted!! ( :( cosI didn't know about the gluten, mainly). Looking forward to trying Boom Choca Boom in June, and getting back to Ghiradelli which I used to eat long before gluten free :D

Mushroom, I love it when you like my jokes.

You laughed at My Grain Headaches :rolleyes:

and now about Chocolate! :D

That makes me happy cause like...um...I been in bed with this disease for 7 years and haven't made anybody smile, and I certainly wasn't smiling either. <_<

Thanks for making me smile.

And thanks everyone for the chocolate information!!!
