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/

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.

    • Hi, you can try reporting your own post.  That should alert the site admin of your request.  I don't think they can delete your posts, but changing your user name may be possible.
    • Hi Pablito, Welcome to the forum! You are right, you should keep eating gluten  until the tests are all done.  The skin problems you describe ma be a condition only celiacs get.  The condition is called dermatitis herpetiformis (DH for short),  DH causes an itchy rash that is usually symetrical on the body.  You get the rash on both arms or legs etc.  It makes little blisters on the skin.  They are caused by IgA antibodies in the skin.  There i a test for DH where they take a small skin sample (biopsy) from the skin next to a blister and check it for IgA antibodies.   If they find DH, then you have celiac disease.  The 2 conditions are never separate.  there is a section of this forum dedicated to dermatitis herpetiformis with lots more information. The usual diagnostic process is to do a celiac antibodies blood test first, and then an endoscopy to test for damage to the gut lining.  But with DH, it is better to get the skin biopsy done instead of the endoscopy. Celiac disease is passed on in genes, so your children should be tested also if you are diagnosed.
    • Research Celiac Ataxia for potential diagnosis. Look at Milk and dairy for potential head and sinus related issues.  I stopped dairy and I can breathe now! Saturated fat may also be a problem, but it's mostly dairy!
    • It is best not to try and do this on your own. Talk to your allergist. Not all will deal with food intolerances but if yours doesn't find one who will.  Mine had me fill out a very detailed diet questionaire and tested for true allergies before he gave me my starting point. I will admit I wasn't real happy with my starting point since none of my usual foods were on it. He said that I was most likely to react to foods I ate the most so most of the 5 I either rarely ate or didn't really like. The prescribed starting point he formulated was designed to make sure I had adaquate nutrition and enough calories.   It took about 2 weeks before a lot of my tummy issues resolved and I was then able to start adding foods in one at a time for a week before moving on to the next.  He said food intolerance reactions can take up to a week to show up so I had to be sure it was a full week between food additions. I did have to call three offices before I found a doctor who could do the formulation of the diet but this guy truely saved my life. Out of all the doctors I had seen, including specialists in big hospitals, he was the one responsible for finally realizing I was celiac. He of course referred me back to my clueless GI doctor who confirmed the diagnosis by almost killing me with a gluten challenge. I should note that some of my intolerance (not gluten of course) did resolve after I had healed. Even dairy which I hadn't been able to have for years! I hope you can get some answers and are able to heal soon.
    • I'm 43 years old. I'm married and have two teen daughters. After all these years it was one of my daughters who tonight said to me: "you probably have Celiac disease" after hearing my wife and I talking about all the pimples I always get on my arms. I never heard of the disease but I have heard about a lot of people having gluten allergies and didn't know they were the same thing. So I started looking it up on the internet. Turns out I have had all the symptoms all my life and no one has ever said anything about it possibly being Celiac disease. When I was a kid my doctor gave me prescriptions to antibacterial soaps to use for the arm pimples. Hibitane I think was one of them. And I've always had swollen looking ankles as long as I can remember. All my life people have noticed it. As a kid and teen I played lot's of sports and have broken my ankles and sprained them so my mom and I brushed it off at that and so did my family doctor when I was young.  But I always thought it was weird that the swelling continued all these years.  I have had a bloated feeling stomach all my life too and chronic diarrhea. My stomach is always hard and swollen feeling. Not ever knowing what that stuff was related too so I have never mentioned the bloat or diarrhea to a doctor. Just kind of embarrassing I guess. As my wife and I were reading about Celiac Disease on the internet together tonight she pointed out to me that that's probably why these symptoms almost all went away when I did a very low carb diet for about a year straight to lose weight a couple years ago. I had solid bowel movements, no bloat, ankle swelling went down but I thought the improvements were from weight loss and just eating healthier . But perhaps in reality it probably had a lot more to do with not eating all the wheat products/gluten products. So tomorrow I will be seeing my doctor to talk to him about it and to ask for the blood tests. I have read that I should continue eating gluten though until my testing is done. So that is crappy but I guess it's better to know for sure. Something else I think I should point out too is that I get headaches quite a bit after having big meals. Now I am thinking that may have something to do with the gluten too. I have read that some people with Celiac also get headaches with the other symptoms. It's great to see there is a forum like this to help people out with these issues. If I test positive for Celiac I will for sure be following this forum closely for advice and diet/nutrition help.
