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

The following ingredients found on a label indicate the presence of soy protein.
Edamame (soybeans in pods)
Hydrolyzed soy protein
Kyodofu (freeze dried tofu)
Okara (soy pulp)
Soy nut butter
Soy protein, soy protein concentrate, soy protein isolate
Textured soy flour (TSF)
Textured soy protein (TSP)
Textured vegetable protein (TVP)
Yuba (bean curd)
*Products that are covered by the FDA labeling laws and contain soy lecithin must be labeled "contains soy".
May Contain Soy:
Asian foods (e.g. Japanese, Chinese, Thai, etc.)
Hydrolyzed plant protein
Hydrolyzed vegetable protein (HVP)
Should be Safe:
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.
