Soy Lecithin
0

13 posts in this topic

Well I already know that soy makes me sick. I have really been trying to talk myself into the fact that soy lecithin won't bother me.

Wrong. Maybe I can get away with one Sees bordeaux. Although now I'm scared. But that's it. I got a box for Christmas. I apparently can't do 3 one day, and 2 the next day without paying the price for over 24 hours. It felt just like being glutened. Nausea, severe fatigue and muscle weakness.

Will this ever go away? Will the soy intolerance go away? Soy is in flipping everything. I can't find a salad dressing that does not have soy in it. And now I'm supposed to give up See's bordeaux to this stupid disease?

Ugh.

Soy overall, probably not; soy lecithin, maybe. I can do it now. But that's after four years or so.

Well that's better than nothing! I'll take it.

Since my diagnosis 8 1/2 years ago and going gluten-free, I have had to take one food after another out of my diet: corn (which causes me gluten reactions/damage), dairy, soy, beef, pork, sulfites (onions, garlic, brussel sprouts, cabbage, and a hundred others). I can only do very few things with soy lecithin in them. I think it has to do with how the particular soy lecithin is made and if the soy proteins have truly been "processed out." I think my problems all come back to leaky gut so this year, my plan is to go on the extremely limited diet to try to heal it. Hopefully, someday I'll be able to eat like a semi-normal person again. Gluten-free wouldn't be so bad if I could eat all the other things that keep coming out of my safe foods.

It could go away. It did for my daughter but... Now she has a thyroid problem so still has to avoid soy.

Before the thyroid problem, her soy issue went away? Or just soy lecithin?

It took my daughter a year to get all soy back, it may have been sooner but I waited to try it with her since she is young.

Hi Kiki, soy lechitin gives me heart problems (extrasystoles). I also avoid it because of my thyroid disorders, and I am currently making my own pretty much anything. Have you tried looking up recipes to make your own salad dressings et cetera? I never use dressings, but I am pretty sure it can't be impossible to make?

Soy is now officially my worst enemy.

I also like to think that a little soy lectin won't hurt me. And probably a very little of it won't. Like, 2 chocolate chips or something. Maybe.

More than the tiniest bit send my head spinning in minutes. It's not worth the risk.

You can indeed get things without it, though it takes serious hunting, and shelling out more. Get organic dark chocolate, usually the darker the better. Check your local organics store to see what they have. I think some of the Green & Blacks chocolate is ok.

Enjoy Life and Camino dark chocolate chips are soy free.

Salad dressings - get something vinegar based. Again with the organic. Though I just found some vegan and soy-free "cream" dressings. Can't remember the name. Uses a lot of coconut instead. I got the ranch. It's runny, but not bad.

Ask at your local store and maybe they can help. Making your own is also a good idea.

Oh! and soy-sauce substitute: Coconut Aminos. It's made from coconut sap, is a bit sweeter than tamari, but it does the trick.

For me the effects of soy are worse than dairy and, for immediate reaction, almost worse than gluten. It suuucks!

Good luck.

I found a recipe for easy mayo -- so I will try that this weekend. And I found a ranch dressing recipe I will try. :)

Thanks for the tips! I only like milk chocolate, but I can probably live without it. It's just disappointing. I really don't understand why soy is in nearly everything these days.

If you're ok with milk, then there is probably some soy-free milk chocolate out there too.

(If you're ok with milk, then I'm jealous. I miss cheese so much!)

Good luck!

Pegleg84 thank you so much for this. I've finally accepted that I can't have soy anymore, but I love stirfrys. My daughter has decided she's vegetarian now, so stir frys were my go to meal. I'd do tofu for her and meat for her dad and I. I was wondering how this was going to work. I'm going to look for the coconut aminos today. :)

Amen to that! I can deal with giving up milk, yogurt, and ice-cream, but cheese?!? That one is so difficult. And sorry to all you vegans out there, but that vegan cheese is NOT the same.

Look at a good natural foods store, or ask if they can get it. It's a bit pricy, but it's worth it.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
