In Topic: Soy Lecithin A New "no-no"?

10 September 2009 - 03:40 PM

Thank you so much for writing this Thread! Soy and Soy Lecithin has caused me trouble for sooooo long. I eliminated it early on and it is such a bummer because so many foods have it in it. Almost every chocolate bar has it :(

Thank you all for this thread; I just got back from my mother-in-laws for a labor day BBQ.

I often feel uneasy when I go there, I feel as if they do not believe that this is a real disease, I try to explain that my body actually starts to attack itself hence but it never works. They don't actually say it straight out to me but I don't feel that they are on my side either.

My mother in law likes to bring up a study that she heard about that says that people can get over there allergies by eating the food that causes allergies in small doses everyday. I want to shake her and tell that she is crazy but I reminder her that it is so much more than a mere allergy.

Today when I walked in she had 2 loaves of homemade lemon pound cake and several homemade muffins sitting out on the island of her tiny kitchen with a fan blowing right on them toward the door. I got so spooked that I held my breath walking through the kitchen and stayed out of there the entire time.

My Aunt-in-law got testy when I asked her how the baked potatoes were made and what spice was used on them.

I don't mind that I choose not to eat so many foods, I just wish other people wouldn't get edgy with me about not eating foods with gluten. It doesn't bother me but for some reason it bothers them.

Sorry this post is so long, thank you for letting me vent.

In Topic: "gluten Free" Items That "got You"

07 September 2009 - 08:35 AM

Oil of Olay soap got me :( I only use Dove now.

I called the company before using it and was told that it did not contain gluten. I used it twice and became very sick, it took a few days to get over the reaction.

I find that for me, lately, gluten sneaks up in the products that I use (shampoo, conditioner, soap, etc...)

I never can pinpoint it exactly for sure but suspect the following:
Cinnamon Flavored Chex (almost certain) - do fine with the corn and rice and honey nut.

There is soy lecithin in the Cinnamon Flavored chex but not the corn or rice chex. It maybe the soy that is bothering you. I can not have soy, I have a bad reaction from soy in addition to the gluten issue.

Are you taking any medication? Medications and OTC drugs can have fillers that have gluten.
