Soy-Free Gum?
0

7 posts in this topic

I cannot tolerate ANY soy, including soy oil or soy lecithin. Besides Glee Gum (which I don't prefer), does anyone know of any gluten-free AND soy-free chewing gum?? Thanks!

I had no idea gum had soy in it.

I have never even thought of checking for that and I avoid soy too.

Hope you get an answer.

Sadly basically all gum has soy lecithin in it. . . I swear that stealthy soy sneaks up in the craziest of places! It seems as though soy oil and lecithin are in basically every single processed food out there. Thank heavens for companies like Enjoy Life and Udi's that guarantee no gluten OR soy, among other common allergens/intolerances!

I've been unable to find any soy-free gum (oil and lecithin get me too). I'd never heard of Glee Gum, but I looked it up and it's got other stuff I can't handle. :( I really miss gum!

Okay...I *think* I hit the jackpot, per the labeling (assuming it's correct, although I've had no problems yet)...

Trident White Wintergreen (in the Teal package)

Other Trident White flavors DO have soy lecithin, but this flavor does not seem to have that wretched ingredient. It is not listed in the ingredients, and I have not had any ill-effects of soy since I've started chewing it...

I always check the back of the package before I buy, though, just to make sure they haven't changed the ingredients. Let me know if you try it and it works!

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
