Daiya Cheese Making Anyone Sick?

I think I'm having a reaction to this. I emailed the company but have not heard back yet. Their label says it's made in a dairy, egg, soy, and nut free facility but does not say anything about gluten in their facilities. Just wondering.

Hi.

Their website lists their cheeses as gluten free. My Celiac daughter has eaten the mozzarella with no problem. I noticed that you're newly diagnosed. You may have other food intolerances such as soy (the basis of the Daiya cheese). I, myself, found out that I'm super soy sensitive about a couple of months after going gluten free. Soy, corn, and dairy intolerances often coexist with gluten issues.

I just can't eat too much of the stuff. (And now that I got a stomach virus after having made fake mac'n'cheese, I"m not sure I'll eat the stuff agian. :) )

Hello,

We haven't received an email from anyone with a complaint of this nature, would you be able to contact us at cr@daiyafoods.com? We also saw this on twitter and have replied to try and speak with you but haven't had a response yet.

Hi Jillian,

Our products are actually tapioca based, making them soy-free. Daiya is also free of many common allergens including dairy (casein and lactose), gluten, eggs, rice, peanuts and tree nuts (expect coconut oil). We have our own dedicated production facility that is free of all these allergens, eliminating the potential of cross contamination. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us directly cr@daiyafoods.com.

I don't have any problems with it. It is dairy, lactose, casein, soy and gluten free. Taste like american cheese not cheddar, but it better then nothing when you need cheese. Best non-dairy cheese I have found as far as taste and melting.

I did receive an email back, thanks for your reply! I don't have a twitter account so you must be talking about someone else. I'm not sure what it was but me and my 2 girls had reactions to it. All of the ingredients seem to be things we don't normally have problems with so that's why I sent an email about possible cross contamination. I was also confused because, although the package says gluten free on the front, on the back it just says "Made in a facility free of animal products, milk, egg, soy, peanuts and tree nuts (excluding coconut)"...it doesn't say anything about the facility being free of gluten. I am sad that we can't have this since it is a wonderful replacement for real cheese :( Maybe we will try it in a few months when we are better healed. Thanks!

My two daughters and I started on Daiya cheese a month ago. My 3 year old would get the biggest pimple on her nose within twenty minutes of eating the cheese. I had to take the second bag back to whole foods. I don't know what to do because she has an allergy to dairy and this was the only substitute I know of and she is reacting to it. I am not sure what is in the ingredients that is causing it. No other coconut products cause this.

You might look into "raw cheese" recipes. They're generally made from nuts.

I am not gluten-free or celiac, but have some lactose intolerance and my daughter has some severe casein allergies. I've tried Daiya a number of times myself, as I enjoy the flavor. I've tried the shreds, the wedges and the Amy's dairy-free mac n cheese with Daiya. Each time I've eaten it, I've become VIOLENTLY ill within a few hours. Like food poisoning-type ill. At first I thought I did have food poisoning, but I only had this reaction after I ate something with Daiya in it.  I am DEFINITELY not giving it to my daughter.

 

I have NEVER reacted to any other non-dairy cheese in this manner, and I've tried quite a few. I contacted Daiya, and they suggested that perhaps it is too rich for me to digest properly? I don't know about that, but I do know that if you're in the market for cheese alternatives, I would suggest Follow Your Heart instead of Daiya, at least for the mozzarella. I enjoy that from time to time with no ill effects.

We have used Daiya shredded cheese substitutes for months and never had a problem yet... or at least anything that we have noticed. We'll keep using it.  My son is dairy free (and has a nut allergy) and it's the only way he can have his pizza or mac n cheese now a days.  I like it sprinkled onto an egg bake or in tacos.

    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam, If you are going to continue the celiac testing with an endoscopy, you need to keep eating gluten until it's done. It can be hard for vegetarians to keep their vitamin D levels up.   This Vitamin D  Council link has some good info on ways to boost your levels. https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/
    • Blood results - odd
      Your ferritin was very low!  My result was a 2 when I was diagnosed.    I hard a hard time breathing and the fatigue was awful due to low hemoglobin levels.  But after going gluten free and taking iron for a few months, I quickly recovered from iron-deficiency anemia.  I still have hemologobin levels that are slightly below range due to Thalassemia which is genetic and my body has adjusted for it.   My B12 and folate levels are  super high.  My B12 is over 2000!  Yeah, I googled and ruled out cancers, etc.  Looks like some of us do not process man-made B12 often included in supplements.  I opted for natural sources of B-12 and folate and my levels have come down a bit.   Let us know your results.  Read the Newbie 101 section under "Coping" within this forum for tips.   Be patient.  It can take months, to years to feel good.  But it will happen!    
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Welcome to the forum!   Well.....in theory you should be able to heal within a few months (grow new villi, etc.).  The reality is that it takes so much longer -- like a year or two (I kid you not!)  Why?  celiac disease can damage more than just the gut.  Depending on what was damaged (nerves, bones, etc) can impact healing time.  The gluten-free diet has a very steep learning curve.  It's not just giving up gluten.  It's avoiding cross contamination.  Becoming an expert in reading labels.  Learning to avoid foods processed on shared lines in a facility.  Then there are intolerances that most celiacs develop.  The most common ones is lactose.  Why?  The villi tips release the enzymes to digest lactose.  No villi tips?  Then you can not digest lactose.  Often this is temporary, but if you are one of the many adults in this world, you might already be lactose intolerant or might become so as you age.   Other intolerances that members often report include corn or soy.   Some celiacs react to oats, even gluten free.  So avoid oats for six months.  So, try cutting out dairy for a few days and see how you feel.  Then add in those items that have the least lactose:  hard cheese, butter, yogurt and see how you feel.   Avoid eating out for six months until you have seen some improvement.   Read our Newbie 101 thread under coping for more ideas!  Hope you feel better soon.   
    • Recovery diet, nutrition, leaky gut?
      I am having my endoscopy on Tuesday. I want to begin to heal my gut asap. I spent this morning in the ER with stabbing pain in my right shoulder blade, pain to the left of my belly button and vomiting. It's referred pain from my small intestine. I couldn't move or breathe hardly it hurt so bad. I NEED to get everything together to heal my gut asap. I don't want to ever go through this again. What are your recommendations? I've been reading a bit on leaky gut - anyone have good experience/links Or would the autoimmune diet be better? Are they one in the same? I know I am also reacting to casein and possibly potatoes.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
