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

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.

    • I had a negative biopsy and was still diagnosed with Celiac. My GI ran a bunch of tests looking for the cause of my 15+ years of diarrhea and the only thing that came back positive was the entire Celiac panel. All very high. So he performed an endoscopy with biopsy. The biopsy was negative. So he ordered a genetic test. When that came back as "high risk" he decided a trial gluten free diet was in order. After 8 weeks my symptoms resolved and my antibodies were back to normal. Since then, follow up testing had shown I have osteoporosis. I am a 40 year old male.  So yes, you can definitely still have it and have significant damage with a negative biopsy. 
    • Annual celiac antibody testing is, in my opinion (and based on what celiac researchers have published), is critical, especially for a 12 year old.  Life is going to get harder for her.  Peer pressure is huge (I have a 15 year old daughter), and remaining diet compliant can be tough.   In Dr. Fasano's, Gluten Freedom, he discusses a young patient who became ill in high school after being gluten free for years.  His parents were perplexed.  Dr. Fasano took the young man aside and he confessed that while on a date, he didn't want to bring up his celiac disease.  So, he ate pizza.  He was too embarrassed to tell his parents.   My daughter does not have celiac disease.  She was first tested two years ago.  Since she is symptom free, is not anemic and her other lab work is fine, we'll wait to test her in another year.  It all depends on the patient, but every few years, testing is recommended for all undiagnosed first-degree relatives.   It certainly sounds like your younger children should be screened.   I wish you both well!      
    • Perhaps you should consider asking for a GI referral.  You might just skip the blood tests and go directly to an endoscopy/biopsies while you are still consuming gluten.  It is the "gold" standard for a celiac diagnosis anyway!   Here's the deal with going gluten free.  You can do it.  It costs nothing, but you must give it six months or longer.  You'd need to think like a celiac, but it can be done!  I'll tell you my tale.  My hubby went gluten-free 15 years ago per the very poor advice of his GP/PCP and my allergist.  After a year of mistakes and learning, he got well.  It worked!  Thirteen years later, I was formally diagnosed.  (It was a shock as I was only anemic at the time.)  Hubby would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical.  I must say, it's nice to see those lab results.  It really helped me adhere to the diet in the beginning too.   So, you know your medical situation.  You must do what's best for you!   I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I'm sure going to have a long talk with my doctor.  Then I'll find a new one that will support me and make sure that my daughter and I both have the proper testing done yearly.  
    • also:  glutendude - i don't get it.  shouldn't it be glutenfreedude?  lolz i eat out few and far between.  most of the times i've been glutened it's been eating out.  this weekend i'm getting my bacon cheeseburger on at red robin  i always get my 'good' waitress - lucky, i guess, paula takes good care of me   and i will eat at bonefish but they have a limited 'safe' menu.  look for places that have the 'GiG'  training they know their stuff.  mellow mushroom, melting pot, california pizza kitchen, pf changs are all supposed to be trained that way.  they know to avoid cc and change their gloves, etc.
