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

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

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.

    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep. 
    • Hi DKH0614, I use aspirin, Pepto Bismol, and peppermint tea or Altoids peppermints.  Pepto Bismol has a soothing effect on the gut.  Pepto Bismol also has aspirin in it.  Peppermint is helpful for relaxing smooth muscle tissue and getting gas out of the stomach. As per KarenG, you may be reacting to dairy.  Dairy has a sugar called lactose in it that some people with celiac have a hard time digesting.  You could try avoiding dairy for a few weeks to see if that helps.  Or try taking lactaid type pills when you eat dairy. It doesn't take very much gluten to cause an immune system reaction.  So it is important to avoid even traces of gluten if possible.  The stuff is hard to avoid sometimes if people around you don't understand how much a small amount of it can affect your body. Let us know if we can help with any  more questions, or if you have concerns we haven't addressed. And welcome to the forum! Also, if you subscribe to the thread (notify me of replies) you'll get an email when people respond to your thread.    
    • After a year and half, if you are eating gluten-free, you shouldn't be having pain from Celiac.  Perhaps you need to find out what is really causing your issues?  Dairy/ lactose is an obvious first place to look.
    • Hi! I am 15 and have been diagnosed with celiac disease for about a year and a half now and I am woundering what do some of y'all use to relive some of the abdominal pains that come along with celiac/gluten allergies?  ( Ibuprofen,  Tylenol, etc.) 
    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms.
