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!

    • Thanks.  This is very helpful.  Our first post diagnosis grocery store trip took several hours, just trying to read labels to make sure everything is safe.   Our son loves bread and this going to be the hardest part. 
    • i would agree with most of your assessment but overall the popular chefs are very aware. Ed Kenny at Town did have  gluten-free options on the menu.  Mavro's will fix something special given advance notice but its expensive.  excellent but very expensive.  Alan Wong is very aware and will have his staff prepare something as well.  We did find many options at both Oahu  whole foods -- mostly  with tofu. the only thing  there is to be aware of cross contamination with things  next to it.  they make a great gluten-free southwestern tofo dish which is great but not if its sitting next to anything with gluten. Its not whole foods but people use the smae  spoons and tongs i found more at   down to earth in peal city than by  University ave  
    • Hi,  I'm in KOna but my kaiser doctor just retired  who was pretty good about it. I dont know of a specialist here  but most of hte kaiser docs wil test you if thats when you need to talk to them about. good luck  
    • Yes.  And wouldn't it have been nice if your doctor had tested you for Celiac disease before you went gluten free? Then you would know if your issues are Celiac or not.  That would help you know how careful you need to be, what other illnesses and problems to look for, whether you might be passing a genetic disease on to your children, if you should look for another cause of your symptoms, etc  
    • I would be very careful in giving this kind of advice, she is in an advanced stage. I was there and one additional symptom that I was getting was a strong urge to commit suicide so eating gluten for three months might not be the way to go for some people. If a gluten free diet stop the problems them gluten is the problem or a least part of it. I eliminated MSG from my diet because I notice that the common denominator for some products that affected my well being was MSG. I eliminated oats because I notice that I would get canker sores every time I ate it. Wheat is what affect my brain the most, irritability gets uncontrollable, my mental capacity greatly diminish, rash in my arms appear, can't sleep,etc. Barley makes my stomach groan, and constipated. Will try testing how Rye affect me some later time.
