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.

    • Here's another thing.  Feeling deprived?  Order two of the same item.  I was hungry by the time dinner arrived! 
    • The doctors just made me feel like I was crazy because they did not have a clue of what was wrong with me. I did a stool test (positive) and I did a genes test (positive for two gluten sensitive genes, one in each chromosome).  Blood test are not so foolproof, if you read the comments/experiences in such topic you will see the problems. Biopsy can give a false negative if taken from an undamaged area. If you have medical problems that go away once on a gluten free diet then gluten is the problem. The medical establishment profit from managing your medical problems and big pharma makes money by pushing pills so we need to be careful because they won't benefit if a gluten-free diet solve your problems. Since I started a Gluten free diet I have been free of the following: (all related to Celiac)  Irregularity, Intestinal noise, Irregular stool, Tooth enamel defects, Rash in upper arms, Abdominal swelling, depression, fatigue, irritability, lactose intolerance, 
      loss of memory, dandruff, uncontrollable bladder, suicidal thoughts, unable to sleep, Canker sores/ Mouth ulcers, high blood pressure, and probably others that I did not realize. I was at the end of my rope, thanks to Google and the people that are able to talk about this I was able to get my life back. I am passionate about this because I know how bad its can get. 
    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)   Oh, I checked your ship.  You must eat in the diningroom if you have special dietary needs.
