Soy Foods List

3 posts in this topic

So I'm thinking I have a soy intolerance - how do these things come on so quickly?? I was fine for awhile, and now my skin is breaking out, I have terrible headaches, and the brain fog is unbelievable. So for those of you that are soy intolerant, is there a website (such as this one) that you can turn to to look for products that may or may not contain soy? I have to do a complete overhaul of my fridge/pantry and I want to make sure I keep anything that is safe. Is everything with "natural flavoring" out?? I'm just so upset by this. I was doing so well and had a whole list of awesome gluten free recipes. But now, my house is most likely full of items I can't have. Any help would be appreciated.

If you are in the US, foods containing soy must have a allergy warning on the food label.

The exception to that is soy oil. I have discovered that most vegetable oil contains some soy oil or can be all soy oil.For some reason oil does not need a allergy warning :blink:

Check EVERYTHING (and I mean EVERYTHING) for soy. You will be amazed the products that contain soy (everything from canned tuna to chocolate candy to shampoo ):ph34r: . Since being gluten and soy free I read every label, even if it is a product I have used before.

I am careful to watch for products manufactured at shared facilitys. I am super sensitive to soy and cross contamination is a big issue for me.

I do use Udi's bread and Hot- Kid rice crisps with no problem .

I am unaware of a web site (such as this one) that deals with soy. If anyone knows of one I would also be interested .

It is possible your intolerance is temporary. Don't throw anything out yet! just avoid for a few weeks and try it again.

The following ingredients found on a label indicate the presence of soy protein.

Edamame (soybeans in pods)

Hydrolyzed soy protein

Kinnoko flour

Kyodofu (freeze dried tofu)

Soybeans Miso

Natto

*Products that are covered by the FDA labeling laws and contain soy lecithin must be labeled "contains soy".

May Contain Soy:

Artificial flavoring

Asian foods (e.g. Japanese, Chinese, Thai, etc.)

Hydrolyzed plant protein

Hydrolyzed vegetable protein (HVP)

Natural flavoring

Vegetable broth

Should be Safe:

Soy oil

Vegetable oil derived from soy

These soy derivatives should be safe for most soy-allergic individuals.

I had a soy intolerance and find I CAN use soy oil (as in mayonnaise) without problems.

I did not eat soy that much to begin with, but like gluten, it is IN everything and so, it was tricky at first. I avoided it for many months and then, added some back in. Sausages, cold cuts, prepared foods may contain soy. Candy, too :(

Some gluten-free products contain soy, so be sure to read the labels. Glutino, Scharr, Van's come to mind.

Hopefully, it is a temporary intolerance for you.

I think mine is. Oddly, the soy intolerance was DXed BEFORE the celiac.!

I tried gluten-free soy sauce recently in a recipe and crossed my fingers and I was okay! :)

Here is a good list of foods that may contain soy. Reads just like the food list we need to avoid for gluten. Wonder why? Because soy is also used most often as fillers. I had to check everything from supplements to lotions, etc. Bummer, I know. :(

I have the gluten-free/DF/SF guide by Cecelia's marketplace and it helped with buying packaged products when I was first Dxed.

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
