Soy Lecithin
0

11 posts in this topic

Do those of you with soy intolerance also have a problem with "soy lecithin" in all cases? This ingredient seems to be in all chocolate except for Enjoy Life Bars and just curious of any of you who are normally sesitive to soy can tolerate this "soy lechithin" in small quantities? Thanks for any insight you might have.

I cannot tolerate soy lecithin either. It seemed to be a cumulative effect at first, but now I seem to react to it almost immediately, and if it is in tea, I react to it within minutes.

If it is in tea, bad news. So far, I'm okay with chocolate coatings--so, very small amounts, in very limited doses, preferably spaced out.

My daughter has a problem with all soy so she can't handle it in the chocolate, but we did just see that Lindt 90% dark cocoa has no dairy or soy in the ingredients. I loved that one beforehand so we will be trying it soon for the girls and I.

Thanks so much for these replies. Very helpful and based on this will continue to avoid. Thanks for helping me deal with craving that could have had bad consequences and keep me motivated towards healthier way of life! Will look for this Lindt bar, to be sure. :) Thanks Again!

News Flash! Wanted to make sure you knew this--when I went to check this bar out on (Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned) (I have to avoid 8 Main Allergens, not just wheat and soy)--I saw this and wated to let you know: "Safety Information

May contain traces of peanuts / tree nuts/soy bean/milk"

Thank you so much! I guess I will have to keep looking:( We are avoiding gluten, dairy, soy, eggs, fish, bananas, sweet potatoes and she can only tolerate little amounts of corn, so thank you again.

I can relate. It can be so hard to find good products that fit our needs. I found a "protein" bar called NuGo Free Dark Chocolate--it's gluten, soy and dairy free--they actually taste pretty good--decent chocolate flavor especially if you are otherwise limited and have a decent protein profile (I am vegan and have difficulty getting enough each day) they have some ohter flavors as well. I get them on Amazon. If you find any other products that are clean, please advise and I will do the same. Good luck! I feel for you!!!! :)

I am convinced since tracking the foods that I react to, that there is a BIG difference between organic and non-organic. The two main differences are pesticide residues and GMO's. Pesticide residues create a reaction of their own. Some are neurotoxins, which are some of the worst for me. PAN is a data base to look up fruits and vegetables and find out what they are sprayed with in the US. If you click on each pesticide listed you can see the symptoms caused by them. If they are from out of the country they can very well have DDT on them. That includes chocolate and coffee. DDT's half life in the body is 50 years!

An example is bananas. My mouth breaks out almost immediately with a non-organic banana. If it is truly organic (like I can find in Hawaii grown in a friend's yard) my mouth doesn't break out. Lately, some of the organic bananas I bought at WF made my mouth break out, so don't think they are really organic. Same goes for chocolate. I can tolerate organic, but not non-organic. Also, chocolate is a nut and I think I react to most nuts, some worst than others.

GMO's are another issue. I don't have proof right now, but I have noticed that more people reacting to corn which is mostly GMO now. I don't think our digestive systems were created to handle these different molecules. The newest research on GMO's shows they are showing up in Mom's blood and baby's blood. Yikes. An example is I can eat organic corn tortillas, but react to non-organic ones. Weird. It could be the organic factory has no chance of cross contamination. I am hyper sensitive celiac.

For protein, I found a great organic sprouted brown rice powder that is highly bioavailable. I love the vanilla flavor. Super clean. Found it on the internet. Also found a new sprouted tofu by Wildwood for those who tolerate soy beans. I can't usually digest regular tofu, but this one is great. I just finished my second container of it and no reactions! Wow. The sprouting turns the soy bean into a vegetable which is much easier to digest. Then they process it into tofu. So it is a very different product. My blood tests were negative for soy allergies, so think my reactions were because of the digestibility of regular tofu.

Pacific Organic Foods makes a great tasting organic almond milk. Almonds are one of the heaviest sprayed crops and they are all irradiated now (new law), so organic is best. They list on the box "Gluten free". I have been drinking it for 2 or 3 months now with no reactions. Plus it is delicious and low in carbs. I switched from an organic soy milk because the soy milk had too many sugar carbs.

I seem to be getting this too. Was a gradual build up at first, but now it's within half an hour, I generally have to go lie down for a while, my body starts to ache, neuro symptoms, weakness, headaches and irritability. Most of it goes fairly quickly, but I get left with the neuro stuff for days after. I just got done yesterday by a gluten-free crispbread in fact.

    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone! 
    • Welcome to the club you never wanted to join! The good thing about this club is that you don't have to take any pills, get radiation or chemo, or stick yourself with a needle every day. Things could be much worse than this. Does your brother live close? If so he could go to your same savvy doc. That would be great! Also what about your mom?
    • Hi There! I am Aly and I have suffered seriously for about 4 years with an huge increase in symptoms. I just recently started a gluten free diet a few months ago and I am sure I make mistakes because I feel it when I do. Your symptoms are a lot like mine and after many blood tests and visits to Neurologist still no answers. They diagnosed with relapse/remission MS for all these years and now say its not that. It's Auto-immune but no answers. They never tested me for Celiac's but A friend suggested I try going gluten free. Here are my symptoms below.  See if you relate or if anyone can relate. Heat Sensitivity, Nerves jumping in face and eyes, sometimes pain and redness around the skin of eyes, kinda pinkish.... occasional trimmers coupled with loss of coordination and balance along with in and out slurred speech, a other varying waves of relapse include Extreme fatigue and a huge fog comes over me. I can't sit up or stand without getting dizzy and feel like passing out. For a few days of the relapse It's just bed rest. The other parts are off and on having to use cane. Up and down, symptoms change but eventually the waves grow dim and I go back to being normal for a while. Things seem to get exacerbated when I do to much like go more than 4 -5 hours without taking a break and resting, lifting anything to heavy...so it seems to be straining things lead me to relapse. I used to be go go go...on the run but life has changed and I find that although I am eating gluten free and being careful not to relapse, I entered another a month ago and I am having to get IV steroid infusion tomorrow to break the cycle of this one. Just when I think I am beginning to feel better and go do something I go right back down. Its seems Gabapentin, Baclofen, and LOTS of rest only get me where I need to be again. It's frustrating. I wanted to share as well so that we can combine forces to get some answers! I have decided to go to a Allergy Clinic of sorts to try and get tested for environmental and food allergies. I am sorry you do not have funding for care. See if there is local clinic that can at least run some preliminary blood work on you. I am not sure if you can see one now in your state being 17 but there is usually a 211 or a 311 line in most cities that will give you the list of places you can go for free or on sliding scale. See if they will run any allergy panels as well. I have found that we have to be proactive in our own care because sometimes there is no simple answer and the more we talk one another with the research sometimes we do on own, we find out more than 4 years of going to a doctor could ever tell you. Thanks for all your input here. I look forward to being a member and helping where I can! I will send updates as I get them. Blessings to you all! Aly
