Soybean Oil - How Avoid In Restaurants?
0

10 posts in this topic

I've avoided soy for about 10 months now and am testing it out. Apparently, soybean oil gives me a lovely stomach ache (day 1, so not sure how long this'll last - just hoping the big C won't be too bad when it shows up next).

I know Chipotle uses it in most of their food. Any other restaurants to definitely avoid? Or types of restaurants/food to avoid? Or items that are generally safe? I don't eat out much, but I'm traveling soon. On trips, I usually make most of my food and only eat out once or twice. I tend to go to places that are high end since I think they're safer (another reason to only eat out once or twice!!). Or Five Guys burgers.

Thanks!

Sharon

Actually, if you stick with natural foods and avoid salad dressings (except oil and vinegar), you should be fine. I didn't realize that Chipotle uses soybean oil. Where is it found in their food?

Actually, I believe that the oil that restaurants use for salads is olive oil. I'm highly sensitive to soy and soybean oil, and I have NEVER had a problem with the oil and vinegar in restaurants. I can't imagine that any restaurant would offer soybean or vegetable oil to a patron with who has asked for oil and vinegar for a salad.

OMG! I have no idea that they used so much soybean oil! Guess I won't be patronizing them anymore. Thanks for the info!

Most restaurants use soybean oil. So good luck with that!

The restaurant I use to work part time for did.

So unless you give me an unopened bottle of olive oil I do not trust a restaurant(any restaurant) not to use vegetable oil (soy oil)

I love this part :angry:

""The only soy-derived ingredient is highly refined soybean oil, excluded as a major food allergen. ""

I do not understand how they can say it is not a major food allergen. It is still soy oil no matter how "highly refined " it is!!!!

I understand this is a MAJOR loop hole in the government ( US) regulation :angry: but for those of us that react, no matter how highly refined, it is frustrating !!

Good question. I've been thinking about this. Chili's has a soy allergy menu. I would have to double check but I am thinking their salmon may have soy oil.

    • 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.
