I've been feeling unwell for a few weeks and trying to find the cause has been killing me, but I think I finally have it. I reread labels on all supplements. The Spring Valley Vitamin E I started on a little while does not list soy as an ingredient, but it is not mentioned along with the things it is free of: gluten, salt, sugar, artificial color or flavor, starch, wheat or lactose.

That got me suspicious so I went to the manufacturerís website and found that it contains soybean oil, but because the U.S. labeling laws donít consider that to be an allergin, they donít have to disclose it. What a load of garbage!

I have a feeling that I will feel a lot better tomorrow when I get it all out of my system. I'm 7 months into being free of gluten, soy and a host of other things and I am still learning the hard way.

Vitamins have got me so many times, I am very careful of them now. Good job on finding that issue!

Yep..vitamin E, also called topherol got me too! It took a while to figure out. I get violently ill from soy oil..and lethicin too. I've read that a lot of people don't react to the oil or lethicin..but I guess we are ones who do?

I'm SO glad you figured this out. I know you've been wracking your brain trying to get to the bottom of what was getting you.
Wishing you speedy healing!

OK, I thought I had this figured out, but I got hit again this morning. I've been taking GNC Solotron as my multi-vitamin. The product website states clearly that it does not contain soy. BUT when looking more closely at ingredients, the E is from d-alpha Tocopheryl Succinate. Looking further into that, I found that it was derived from wheat germ, but is now derived from soybean oil. Either way, it is a problem. So are labeling laws in the States.

Hope this helps someone else out there.
