Eggland's Best Eggs
0

12 posts in this topic

I've found that I also have an intollerance to soy since going gluten-free. In fact, my symptoms from even very small traces of it are more severe than gluten.

I haven't been able to eat much due to nausea and a lot of healing I need to do, so when I do eat anything I try to go for high nutrition.

When I went to buy eggs a couple of days ago I saw EggLand's Best brand and it stated on the carton that they are more nutricious all natural, and are an excellant source of vitamin D, B12, E, B2, B5, Omega 3, and have less saturated fat than regular eggs.

It all seemed good to me?

I made a few hard boiled eggs so I could have them ready and easy to grab for a snack. I ate one last night and about 1/2 hour later started feeling very ill. I've never reacted badly to eggs in the past, but got very nauseated, then vomited it up. I got other symtoms too, of the type I get from soy.

I went online this morning and looked them up. The chickens are fed soy!

Just wondered if anyone else that has a problem with soy has reacted to these eggs? AND give a heads up to anyone else that might try them.

I react VERY strongly to soy and I have an egg intolerance. I am not sure if it related to what the chickens are feed or not.

One option is to try to find some home raise non soy feed chickens for your eggs to see if that makes a difference.

Sorry to hear about the eggs disagreeing. What a bummer! To your question, I am eating GFCFSF and have not noticed a problem with eggs. I was however surprised to learn just last week that eggs (or more specifically, the ovalbumin protein) can be antigenic. In fact, I learned about it because it is one of the big 4 on the Enterolab food sensitivity test (Panel A) and my test results showed an egg sensitivity! This was horrible news since eggs constitute a large component of my gluten-free diet. I have scaled back some (from 3 for breakfast to just 2, and skipping some days) but otherwise I am in denial at the moment...

Not sure about the soy feed connection. Bottom line, if the eggs making you sick you gotta try something else. Good luck...

I think this has been discussed here in previous threads but you don't have to worry about what the chickens ate...that has no bearing on the gluten free diet. I use these eggs all the time but have no intolerance to soy. I am sure many other manufactureres of eggs may use some soy in the chicken feed and people aren't getting sick from it. If you are still in the healing process, anything can cause a bad reaction. I have reacted to foods that, later, I did not react to. Sometimes it's hard to pinpoint the exact cause but anyone new to this diet and healing can have a reaction to just about anything along the way.

I am going to agree with GEMINI on this one, hon. I thought it was the eggs, the soy feed, etc... :unsure: because I thought I had a soy issue as well. I may have had one, but all I know is now, I do not seem to have a soy problem. (The only soybean oil I eat is occasionally in mayo anyway--soy is not the best food on the planet-- especially for menopausal women)

I think I may have told you this, but I thought I had dozens of multiple food reactions when I was first DXed, when all along, it was still just a celiac gut in recovery. I paid for all kinds of testing. I tried rotation/elimination diets. Kept a journal. Nothing could be determined. It was just that I was still healing--as I think you may be as well. You are still suffering many lingering symptoms, right, hon?

I did have some nausea with eggs at first. Oddly, I could eat them IN baked goods, but not alone. Not sure why.

Here is what I did.

I just ate the whites alone for awhile--for the protein. My cat got a lot of egg yolks :lol: and her coat is beautiful, BTW.

That worked okay. Then, I tried a whole egg.

And yes, it was an Eggland's Best and I told my hubby, "Oh no!!this is not going to be all right--they feed the chickens soy."" He said almost all are fed soy. He looked high and low for ones that were not fed corn or soymeal.

He's a scientist/chemist and he said --'highly doubtful" it would cause a reaction by what the chickens digest. I said "Well, there is one study from 2009" and he asked--"Are there any others??"

I looked and I cannot find any.

After about 11 months gluten-free and my gut healing, eggs and I made peace. :lol:

I know someone on here is going to post the ONE lone article out there on soy feed and chicken eggs and isoflavones now and refute all this (because I saw it too) ... :lol: but...

in the end, if you are really worried, use a different egg brand.

That's what I did.

Just my humble opinion.

Soy isoflavones have been found in eggs and chicken tissue. I don't know if the amounts would be enough to cause a reaction or not.

According to this article, to be safe, soy levels need to be under 10 ppm. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12911777

The levels found were higher than that in some cases. http://etd.ohiolink.edu/view.cgi/Vargas%20Galdos%20Dante%20Miguel%20Marcial.pdf?osu1236706764

I still don't know that you had a soy reaction from eggs, but it seems like it could be possible.

I think that I have had problems with eggs, but I'm not soy sensitive.

Well..I've been able to eat the cheaper eggs I've gotten at Krogers all along with no problem, so I didn't think it was the egg that made me so sick, but rather whatever they did to it to make it a "super egg"?

If they can make the claims that their eggs are 10 times higher in vitamin E, double the omegas, and 35% more lutein, etc., it stands to reason that whatever they're feeding the chickens is coming through to the egg? :(

I bought a new carton of the cheapies this afternoon and will try them in a day or two, once my system has settled down. I'm a walking science experiment I tell ya!

It looks like there are a lot of providers of soy free eggs, if it is a concern for anyone.

Also keep in mind that while it could be soy, it could also be something else that happens to look like a soy reaction. If a different mainstream brand works for you, go with it. If you cant find something in the store that works, then start trying the brands that keep their chickens on a carefully controlled diet.

Thanks SO much for those links about soy and eggs! It looks like I'm not the only one to react to the soy that's fed to the chickens?

Makes me wonder if some people that have egg intollerances might actually be reacting to the soy rather than the egg? :blink:

I am egg intolerant (worse than gluten), milk, all dairy, butter, raw vegetables, raw fruit, creamy sauces, soy, gluten, alcohol gives me terrible headaches and more but I can't think of them right now. It's easier if I just say what I can eat: cooked vegetables, cooked fruits, most meats (small amounts). I have a terrible time eating out. I try to make it as plain as possible but sometimes foods are hidden and I get sick. This blog is giving me some great insight especially about chicken!

I get sick from eating eggs too. I am more bummed about that than gluten to be honest. I never dreamed a different brand of egg would make any difference at all. But now I will try... cause I sure do like eggs. I'm one year gluten free and hoped it was just temporary, but seems to happen every time I test it. But thanks y'all...cause I wanted another reason to test eggs again!

    • Need help with "positive" blood test results
      You'll want to keep an eye on all your vitamin levels, as absorption problems are quite common with gastritis. You've probably already looked it up, but this is the WebMD page on gastritis. http://www.webmd.com/digestive-disorders/digestive-diseases-gastritis  It's not the best article as they mention 'treating' it with antacids which is pretty much the opposite of helpful. (https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2002/01/020115074441.htm) If the medication they were going to prescribe is an antibiotic, you might want to reconsider. If you have H. pylori, an antibiotic is the only sure way to get rid of it. If you don't get rid of the bacteria, the B12 deficiency will worsen.

      Thanks for pointing all that out Gemini! I look forward to finally getting off gluten for good to see how much everything changes.  I never thought about the absorption of my synthroid with all my other issues.  I just see my primary dr. for all my thyroid, perhaps I will ask for a referral to an endo dr for further evaluation and treatment.  Thanks for all the information! 
    • Gluten And Vertigo
      Christiana, I just felt to look at the site. I thought I had clicked to get email alerts. But, actually my email has been 'fritzing' sort of.  Thank you for your note. It is important for my diagnosis. I was diagnosed with chondritis of the collar bone a few months before the fall that resulted in the immobile right arm. The osteo surgeon gave me a cortosol shot that helped a lot. That MRI showed a rotator cuff tear nearly 2/3 thru the strip of tissue that connects the muscle tissue to the bone and makes the shoulder 'rotate' in place.  That was almost a year ago now. I have been learning to be very very mindful about how I use that arm, when I reach, carefully, how I rest it and sleep position. Interesting that I did see a search answer that said ' they are saying now that there could be a connection btn rotator cuff tear and inflammed collar bone. My primary doctor also said I could have an inflammed chest wall that resulted in the chondritis. I remembered that word from a child's diagnosis years ago. That was in his knees and was treated by this same osteo surgeon, by casting the legs over summer holiday, which ended in healed x-rays. That was osteo chondritis desicans. He said then, 'if it is horses, we would have to shoot them.'  I tried to get a blood test three weeks ago for the same antibody we were treating that child with thru his then pediatritian, for rheumatoid antibodies/ recurring strep throat. I had gotten a 'sort of' diagnosis, or agreement from that primary care doctor, allowing me to get the recommended antibiotics (one of the few treatments that it is allowed, because of the need to keep the hearing). But, his new nurse did not relay the request properly. I hate doctor office politics. I hope this newbie is not going to mess with this doctor's little family as well. Last month when researching Meniere's one of the things listed about it was that autoimmune disease is connected to it also. I was hurt before the falls and the inflammation and the collar bone chondritis and the rotator cuff tear. I was very very concerned about it setting off some kind of autoimmune inflammation reaction or worse that can happen when tissue cells are being repaired rapidly and it felt like lots of toxins were being cleansed and processed over a period of many months. The only similar feeling I have ever experienced was when I had a 'deep tissue massage' to release and cleanse a cortisol 'hump' I had after a prolonged period of high family stress situation. Right now, my primary (an O.D. , or osteopath) is working with me. There are two ENTs in this area he offered for Meniere's and has given me Physical Therapy at his complex for Balance Therapy. It is great that that therapist has a MIL that is also dealing with Meniere's and getting exercises from a major hospital complex in the city. I was able to give her some celiac's diagnosis information. Sounded like her MIL and her son were likely to be candidates.  I did not know what the definition was of the term 'vestibular' as in vestibular migraine, another connection to Meniere's. I just typed www.bing.com and then typed 'definition of vestibular.' That had information about the connections btn hearing and sitting positions. I will look up costochondritis. Thank you, again. Best wishes, Anne
    • What Are Your Brands & Flavors Of Gluten Free Ice Cream ?
      I don't worry about the same facility, but I check if it is on the same lines. I think it is usually a good idea to find out if things are made on shared lines. And if they are made on the same line as gluten-containing products how good is the cleaning in between? Chocolate is a good example of this. For example, I contacted a company whose chocolate I used to eat before being diagnosed and they outright told me they are not good about cleaning on shared lines and it is not safe for allergies or celiac. I have had this response from other companies as well (especially when it comes to chocolate sadly). I think this is why Godiva is not safe. Its just a good idea to check.

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
