Eggs Intolerance?!
0

13 posts in this topic

I seem to be intolerant to eggs along with gluten. I still don't know if it's the eggs but everytime I eat Miracle Whip (mayo dressing), my muscles get tighter and it's almost as if I have been glutened (without the awful neurological symptoms). I was wondering if I was the only one? I always see people with soy and dairy, but what about EGGS?!

Doesn't Miracle Whip have Soy in it??

I thought it did. Just googled and it does have soy.

Basically you can develop an intolerance or allergy to any food.

Shortly after going gluten free, I started reacting to eggs.

There is another thread on egg intolerance/sensitivity...put that in the search box and you will come up with what others have said.

Due to the leaky gut letting food particles through to the bloodstream, it is common for the body to start reacting to other foods. The intolerance may go away and you can start eating the food eventually if it is not a true allergy.

I had to give up eggs, dairy and soy. Every time I test eggs and dairy I get sick again. But I want them back so I test every few months. Soy doesn't seem to make me all that sick, but I avoid it because of Hashimoto's.

Yes, there are many here who can't tolerate eggs...I'm sure other's will post too.

It could be the soy too.

I had allergy skin prick testing because it seemed like everything I stuck in my mouth was making me sick.

I scored a 3 on egg yolks. The more common allergin is egg whites. I didn't have a score on soy, but soy makes me sicker than a dog. The Allergist didn't seem all that surprised, and explained the differences in food allergens and food intolerances. I scored high (4) on a few food items that I never would have guessed were causing me problems. (Turkey, pecans),

But I still eat eggs, just not everyday. If I eat them in moderation and space them out, I'm fine. I've never had a bad

reaction from eggs like I have with Gluten, soy or dairy...but that doesn't mean your experience will be similar.

Do you get the same reaction if you just eat a plain egg? I'm very suspicious of processed products in general.

That said, it's turned out that I have an intolerance to eggs. But my symptoms are nothing like from gluten. I just get potently sulfurous gas!!! I had one bite of a deviled egg and one bite of a brownie made with eggs last week and farted constantly for at least three days.

I'm curious to find out if it is just the yolks that are causing the problem, because with no milk, eggs, or grains it's pretty hard to make anything resembling a pancake, cookie, bread, etc. I'm kind of hoping egg whites are doable.

My son is intolerant to eggs (as well as gluten and casein). There's really no way to make a quiche or anything like that, so you'll have to pretty much give up the foods where eggs are the main ingredient. However, if you are baking without eggs, there are lots of good substitutes. Ener-G egg replacer is sold at health food stores or whole food stores, and it works great for bread, pancakes etc. Sometimes, I use ground flaxseed and some water (1 T. flaxseed plus 3 Tablespoons hot water--let it sit for a minute or two, it get's all gooey). Sometimes, I use pureed prunes (like babyfood) for things that need to be really gooey like brownies. Applesauce (unsweetened!)is another good substitute for eggs. There are some good cookbooks out there!

If a recipe calls for more 3 or more eggs, it's going to pretty much flop to try to use these substitutes--it only works for recipes that only take one or two eggs.

Good luck!!

I used to do those subs when I had a vegan husband. But now I don't eat flax or the stuff in egg replacer, either. Fruits don't work as leavening or binder, though they are tasty and moist. My partner uses coconut flour a lot and those recipes use at least twice the eggs you'd expect. Usually when the family eats eggs they are used as a protein source, even if fruit worked in a recipe it would not have similar nutritional value. I think I'm out of luck on this one.

Miracle Whip does have soy (soy oil) in it .

I am intolerant of eggs :( . Of all the things I have had to remove from my diet Eggs have been BY FAR the hardest.

I am gluten and soy free . I do not say that I am egg free even though I do my best to avoid them in my diet.I can tolerate very very small amount of egg in baked product so I will on occasion have Udi's bread.

I had a high moderate reaction to egg whites on an ELISA (blood) test for IgE, IgG and IgA mediated allergies. My egg reaction was an IgG mediated reaction. My husband took the same test and reacted to egg yolks, but not egg whites. My egg reaction explains why I get very ill (nausea, pain) after getting flu shots (which are cultured in eggs). I also react to wines which are 'fined' with egg white. Because I'm also allergic to soy, I make my own mayonnaise from cashews. I use flax meal or egg replacement for baking.

There are a lot of substitutes for eggs.

Like someone said, don't go chasing after a recipe that takes 3 or more eggs. Some people use tofu in typical "egg" meals. (IMO yuck)

I can't think of the break down of the vinegar & baking soda egg substitute but you can get some lift to baked goods with that. A perfect example is in the "wacky cake" recipe from the depression era (convert with a gluten free flour blend).

I also like to use gelatin as an egg replacer.

By the way my Celiac daughter has an Eosinophilic reaction to eggs. I think my sensitivity to eggs is caused by too much gut damage from Celiac.

You can try Chia seeds too...if you soak them for a few minutes they create a gooey gel that makes a decent substitute!

I'm allergic to egg yolks myself, but I'm unsure it's gluten related. I know since I was a baby I was allergic to sulfur-based medication as well.

I no longer have to make my own mayonnaise from cashews. Earth Balance and Veganaise both offer dairy/soy/egg free varieties of mayonnaise. I've used both and the tastes are similar. So I'll buy whichever is the best price next time. So nice to have more egg/soy/dairy free products to sub for egg products.

    • How do you know what's causing what?
      I am in same boat, yesterday my stomach was churning and bloated and I don't know what the cause was.  How about keeping a food diary? Just note what you ate and how you feel. A few days may be sufficient to discern a pattern, either some rogue product or a previously unknown intolerance. I have read that after gluten is removed further intolerances which were hidden can become apparent.  I don't know whether you could cut yourself some slack from a full vegan approach whilst your body heals? If not, maybe you could substitute say milk with coconut milk or similar to give your body a break whilst keeping calcium levels high? If you join coeliac uk you can check your sauces etc on their gluten-free database, they'll also send you a book which became my bible until I got a hang of which brands I could eat safely. Finally, have you excluded cross contamination from pots and pans, toasters, shared condiments etc?  Good luck!
    • Blood results - odd
      My results were similar – Low ferritin but normal B12. Although my ferritin levels were low, my Iron serum levels were normal. So might be worth getting your iron levels checked out to see if you have any deficiency in Iron. Also I was deficient in Vitamin D, which is perhaps more of a problem in England rather than the US - Our milk isn’t supplemented with vit D and we obviously have less sunshine.
    • 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.

      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.
