Soy Oh Boy
0

10 posts in this topic

I usually drink water with everything, but of course that does not work with cereal. So I use soy dream, which specifically says that is gluten free. I do not get the same reactions as if I ingested gluten, but the soy drink tends to produce a knid of laxative effect. Are a lot of celiacs having problems with soy? I also have probs with corn. What are replacements can be used for Soy dream that have been easier to digested. I have been currently taking DgL, the licorice root, which I will say has taken the edge of a little.

Hi Richard,

Well, sometimes when people have one allergy the other sometimes just some along with them. In this case it is probably just that. I as well use water for everything and I too have an allergy to soy beverages. The reason you are reacting is possibly due to 2 reasons:

1. You're allergic to soy.

2. The equipment used is possible used with materials used with some forms of grains.

I cant remember where I read it but "Rice Dream" I was told to not even drink because of that exact reason. Maybe it is the same with the soy? I have pretty much just given up soy all together and stick to water. You may want to research a little on certain brands of rice milk and check with the companies to see if they are gluten-free and also process it on "clean" machines. meaniung not used as the same machine as somehting that can hurt you.

As for the corn allergy, it is in my case just one of those additional foods on the forbidden list. Do a trial and error. See what forms if all or just some bother you. Maybe start a food diary to see what happens when and yadda yadda. its helped me a ton!!!

Good luck!

Soy is on my watch list.

I haven't isolated it yet but most of the time I eat anything with soy I get a similar reaction as you.

I use Pacific Almond Milk and haven't had any issues.It is gluten-free.

It's very good and a excellent source of calcium.

What is DgL?

I have bad reactions to a lot of soy products but most that say gluten free and contain soy are okay for me. I try to avoid it all together. Maybe, you should try the same. Good luck!

I was going to suggest the same thing.... the almond milk or maybe even goat's milk. Those are the alternatives I can think of. I know that the rice milk specifically says that it is made from a barley enzyme, but I don't think that is the same with soy. I don't know....

Sorry

Steve, DGL is a licorice root that helps support stomach lining and intestinal contractions. I am not actually sure how to spell out the whole word..deglycyrihizinate..I think. You chew two tablets 20 minutes before eating. I has deifinitely helped with the bloating.

Richard,

Thanks for the info. I've actually been drinking Yogi Egyptian Licorice Tea( recommended by dietitian) and it does help.

Hi Heather,

Many licorice candy products contain wheat, but natural licorice root is gluten-free. You can get gluten-free licorice candy and the DGL supplements are good for aiding digestion, but certainly don't taste much like licorice! Read every label if you do try to get some licorice. Running Rabbit brand makes black cherry, raspberry and black licorice flavored candies. They are all gluten-free!

Richard, I am allergic to soy (I get very itchy!) and I am intolerant to dairy, so I have almond milk on my cereal. I use Blue Diamond Almond Breeze. It does have a small amount of soy lecithin in it, but not enough to bother me. Other than that, you could try Mocha Mix (original, NOT fat free). It is dairy free and soy free. I water it down. About 3 parts water to 1 part mocha mix. It makes a good milk replacement for baking as well as for cereal.

God bless,

Mariann

So far, I've had excellent luck with the Silk brand of soy milk. For me, milk allergy goes along with the gluten/wheat thing, so I have to be extra careful not to get any dairy of any kind. You might try Silk.

If it keeps up, though, see an allergist. They can do a skin test for food allergies and this helped me tremendously! I am not allergic to wheat, but am intolerant of wheat/gluten.

    • So I've been glutened....
      That sounds like a plan JMG.  If things aren't working then make a change, hopefully a positive change.  It seems to me we have more noticeable symptoms sometimes after being gluten-free a while.  I made a mistake last night and ate some tuna canned in water.  It definitely wasn't boring.  I usually have more sense than to eat tuna canned in water but screwed up last night.  They canned  it in broth of some sort.  Ingredients say vegetable broth and soy.  Yuck, not good for me.  It sure tasted good though, just ouch.  I am not saying it had gluten in it, but it does have soy and some kind of unnamed veggie monsters.  So it could be soy, or carrots or some other disgusting vegetable that got me.   Not all celiacs have additional food intolerances beyond gluten, but some do.  My gut could testify to that.  Anyway, if you have bloating, cut out all carbs and sugar for starters.  And try peppermint tea or Altoids.  Over here we have something called Pepto Bismol that helps soothe gut pain and another neat thing called aspirin.  And gluten-free beer as needed.  
    • Gluten free apparently not helping entirely
      Jean, Maybe your boss can find you a job in the office for a while?  It's worth asking maybe? It's not easy being on constant travel with celiac disease but it can be done.  Your effort to find safe food is going to be harder than most but it is not impossible.  But if you can't manage it you should really think about getting a non-travel job.  Your boss may be willing to work with you on an office position, even if it's temporary.  That would give you some time to look for a local job and also eat a safer diet. It's really up to you to control your diet and make sure it is safe.  If you can't figure out how to  do that while traveling you owe it to yourself to figure a way out of the travel. Celiac disease isn't always fun and games.  Not always.   I hope you find a way to improve your circumstances.
    • Gluten Free baby food pouches?
      Anyone know of any baby food pouches that are gluten free?  We love to have them on the go for our kids (not just baby), but I have no idea which ones to get now!  We used to get Meijer brand and Plum.   Thanks!
    • gluten free, oat free, egg free breakfast ideas needed for 6 year old
      Thanks for everyone's suggestions!  I think I felt at a loss when we had to cut oats- we used to do cheerios and oatmeal regularly and now those are out.  She has a sensitivity to oats as well as wheat/barley/rye. 
    • So I've been glutened....
      The bloating has, if anything, got worse. It seems better when I'm lay down, when I stand it gets worse. Although the lymph swelling has gone down so maybe I'm through the worst. Hope so anyway... I never used to get a great deal of GI symptoms. Certainly not so serious as the other stuff. It's making me wonder if I just react differently now having been gluten-free for some time. I've noticed lot's of you saying that reactions seem to change over time. Of course its possible the other stuff was masking the GI things. I almost dont trust my memory of those times anymore because a whole chunk of my life seems to have been lived through a brain fog. Tomorrow I'm thinking of going away for a couple of days, maybe just taking some ultra simple food with me so I can try and settle my stomach by boring it into submission

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
