I was cooking/browning some hash browns tonight and it got me thinking about oils. I use vegetable or olive oil. Mostly vegetable oil though. Does anyone cook with canola or corn oils? Most recipes call for vegetable oil. Can the others be substituted?

Canola oil is my go-to oil and I also like olive oil. For hash browns, I use canola oil. Does your vegetable oil contain soy?

I use Wesson vegetable oil. Yes, it is soybean oil. Thats safe for us unless of course you have a soy allergy right?

I don't go out of my way to use products with soy in them but I don't purposely avoid them either. As far as I know, I don't have a problem with soy but others do.

Hmmm..Whats wrong with soy products for celiacs? As far as I know, they are safe for celiacs from a gluten standpoint. Several gluten free products that I use like Coffeemate creamer and Betty Crocker frosting and all Wishbone salad dressings all have soybean oil in them.

Yes it's safe as soy is gluten-free. But for some people, they get deathly ill from soy and therefore avoid it like the plague.

Well, a lot of us do have problems with soy apart from the gluten issue. But if you don't, digestively, have a problem with it then the only consideration would be if your thryoid was okay. Soy mimics hormonal action and can have a negative effect on your thyroid.

Almost all of the gluten free cookies and cake mixes etc. have soy flour in them. I don't see any problem with soy at all. Unless of course you are allergic. I am allergic to nuts so I avoid that at all costs. Almond flour is out for me so soy milk and soy flour products work for me. We are all different. :)

Olive oil and the occasional coconut oil. :)

Soy is...well...do some research on it if you really want to know. In my opinion it isn't food, at least not the way we process it. It ends up being more like a chemical.

Jeez.....Didn't mean to start something regarding soy. Like I said, we are all different. Coconut makes me very sick as well as all nuts.

Soybean oil is widely used oil and is commonly called ‘vegetable oil’. Soybean oil is a very healthy food ingredient despite the bad publicity regarding fats and oils in general. Soybean oil is very popular because it is cheap, healthful and has a high smoke point. Soybean oil does not contain much saturated fat. Like all other oils from vegetable origin, soybean oil contains no cholesterol. Saturated fat and cholesterol cause heart diseases and mainly found in products from animal origin such as milk, cheese and meat products.

So I don't really know what you are talking about saying that soy oil is not a food. Sounds pretty healthy to me. It's not like we are sitting around drinking soybean oil or something. Everything, unless allergic, in moderation. Right?!

For some soy is not an issue, but for some of us (me) it is a very serious issue . We are all different :)

And I prefer grapeseed for frying (although I think it was Riceguy said he didn't like the flavor - I don't find it has any flavor that it imparts).

If by frying you mean deep frying (think french fries, fish, chicken) I use peanut oil. It has a very high smoke point and no discernable taste. It also filters well for reuse.

I, too, use grapeseed oil and olive oil. I use coconut oil as well, but don't prefer the taste as much. But I do love coconut oil in baking.

Soy will have consequences if you use it long term.

http://www.foodrenegade.com/dangers-of-soy/

http://www.soyonlineservice.co.nz/03summary.htm

Just a few points to consider.

I used it for years. Now I have thyroid problems, nodules, Hashimoto's disease and a biopsy for cancer next week.

Soy oil has been well marketed because it is cheap and there was an overabundance of it so they had to do something with it. They decided to make profit from it instead of disposing of it as the toxic waste that it is.

You're right...we are all different, but I sure wish I had known about soy and the consequences of ingesting it years ago. just my two cents.

I use canola oil and extra virgin olive oil depending on the recipe. I use canola oil in baking recipes that call for oil and in cooking recipes where I don't want the olive oil taste. I use olive oil for the majority of my cooking. I never deep fry so I have no idea what a good oil for that would be.

    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      Looks like you got some good info from previous posters.   I don't understand why you and your doctor think that dairy contains gluten?  Lactose is a sugar not a protein like gluten.  I think you have some other issues.  
    • Question on posting
      I made an informative video for Celiac Awareness Month that demonstrates how small 20ppm is. Am I allowed to post a vimeo link? Thanks!
    • Celiac Awareness on NBC Nightly News
      http://www.nbcnews.com/nightly-news/video/celiac-disease-affecting-millions-of-americans-often-goes-undiagnosed-692131907739   This was on last Tuesday. So happy that a popular national news program is spreading good information!
    • The US Preventative Services Task Force needs our help - tell them why Celiac screening is important!
      I am so angry. I am all about universal screening for Celiac Disease. It is a tricky disease to diagnose. Your only symptoms may be joint pain, depression, or weak nails, which people will try to cure with medication or a good manicure. With roughly 80% of the Celiac population remaining undiagnosed, universal screening could save thousands of lives. This article popped up in my twitter feed regarding US physicians who are unsure whether universal screening would provide “health benefits” for those who exhibit no symptoms (http://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-celiac-screening-idUSKCN0XU2G6?utm_content=buffer3ed50&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer) First of all, no symptom is a symptom! There is something called “Silent Celiac Disease”, and I personally know several people who have it. They experience no outward symptoms caused by gluten consumption, but their insides are being torn apart. If they eat gluten, they may not feel it, but they are highly at risk for long term complications such as cancer, miscarriages, and osteoporosis, just to name a few. Also, let’s consider the non-GI related symptoms of Celiac. Doctors, how many times does someone walk into your office and say, “Gee, Doc, could you test me for Celiac Disease? I have (insert one of the following)”: asthma bladder infections dental problems dandruff high blood pressure headaches blurred vision leg cramps back pain pale skin brittle nails acne bad bread mood swings ADD Anxiety Depression a short temper night terrors panic attacks irrational anger sinus pressure Those are just a few of the symptoms that people don’t think to associate with Celiac Disease, and I’m sure that you, Mr. Doctor, will not test someone with Celiac Disease if they have dandruff. This is why so many people are undiagnosed! People do not recognize the symptoms and doctors won’t think to give them a blood test. This is why I always say – You cannot know that you do not have Celiac Disease until you get tested. “One concern with widespread screening is that biopsies aren’t risk-free and may confirm cases of celiac disease that weren’t causing problems for patients and didn’t necessarily require treatment, Krist noted.” WHAT?????? First of all, most Celiac screening starts with a gene test or a blood test. That aside, ALL confirmed cases of Celiac Disease require treatment!! Untreated Celiac Disease can cause many problems in the future. “Guidelines for gastroenterologists recommend celiac screening for people with a close relative with celiac and for diabetics who are at increased risk for the disease, Murray said by email.” I was the first person in my family to be diagnosed. 80% of Celiacs don’t know they have it. I would have never been diagnosed if my gastroenterologist said, “Well you don’t have diabetes and no one in your family has it….” No one in my family had heard about Celiac Disease, let alone had been tested for it. And we have all of the tradition GI symptoms. This is not a rare disease. About 1% of the population has Celiac Disease. Take a look at your facebook friends list – have 500 friends? Odds are that you know four or five friends with Celiac. MAYBE one of them will be diagnosed. Maybe. The others will be suffering in silence. “The USPSTF, a government-backed independent organization that reviews medical evidence, issues recommendations that are closely watched by doctors and insurers. This is the first time the USPSTF has weighed in on screening for celiac disease, and the task force will accept public comments until May 30 before releasing final guidelines.” This brought me to the USPSTF website. In their draft, here is what is listed as “Potential Harms” of screening in asymptomatic populations. I’ve included my response: False positive – there are rarely false positives Unnecessary serologic tests and biopsies – umm…only do a biopsy if you have a positive blood test. And what’s so bad about a blood test? Anxiety of complications from testing – I had much more anxiety in my pre-Celiac days, not knowing if I would poop my pants at work. “Some patients with positive serology who do not undergo histologic confirmation may embark on efforts to avoid dietary gluten, which can increase costs and burdens and may result in decreased quality of life” “– I’m glad that you think my life is so terrible. “Limited evidence from long-term followup studies have shown that some persons with biopsy-confirmed celiac disease may never develop symptoms or complications” – I’m not going to risk getting cancer, are you??? The USPSTF is taking public responses to their draft, all of which must be submitted by May 30th. I highly urge you to write in and explain why universal screening is important. My Celiac diagnosis saved my life. If universal screening can do the same for a huge portion of the population – I am all for it. This could be the most important thing you do for Celiac Awareness Month. Read the draft and write to the USPSTF here. http://www.uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org/Page/Document/draft-recommendation-statement150/celiac-disease-screening
    • New to this--first gluttened exp. How to feel better?
      Just adding to what others have said.  It does take some time but it's likely you will start to feel better.  It took me about a year but now I feel great.  A good probiotic might help.  I use one from Synergy that my naturopathic doctor sells at her office.  I have gotten in the habit of emailing restaurants before I try them and have had very good luck.  One owner of a very popular restaurant in my area took the time to reply and said she had Celiac disease (she sent great detailed info about their food).  Many of the people responding will even tell you who to ask for when you come in.  Good luck and hoping you feel better soon.

      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.
