Topics I've Started

Soy, Estrogen Issues And Gluten Free Foods

06 July 2015 - 02:34 PM

I know there are many people on here who have soy intolerances in addition to Celiac, but I'm wondering if anyone else (non-intolerant) is concerned about use of soy in substitute foods, etc.


I know it's wiser to eat whole foods and not processed, but as a busy working mom and one who likes to eat gluten-free versions of what my family is eating, I admit to eating quite a bit of processed gluten-free pasta, breads, etc.  As a result, I've often wondered if I've been increasing my intake of soy (estrogenic) and brown rice (arsenic) to dangerous levels, whether in soy/rice flours or other ingredients.


Well, now I'm facing a biopsy of something that may very well be the result of too much post-menopausal estrogen and I'm a bit worried that this is the due to higher soy consumption since my diagnosis 2 1/2 years ago.  Has anyone experienced this?  Or looked into it?



Healthy Choice Chicken & Rice Canned Soup

14 June 2015 - 05:52 PM

Hi - Does anyone know if Healthy Choice Chicken & Rice Canned is gluten free?  Does anyone with Celiac eat it safely?


The ingredients list both Maltodextrin and Potato Maltodextrin, so I'm wondering about that first Maltodextrin.  It's a Con Agra product, if that matters.  When I did a search here, the only recent posting was about a recall in spring, 2014 of the microwavable version because WHEAT wasn't listed in the ingredients (!).


Thanks.  I buy these for my kids and only just tonight thought to look at the label to see if I could have some.   Though I don't love that they had to do that recall ;-)

Hair Products/leave In Conditioner?

08 June 2015 - 08:13 AM

I know people generally don't worry about hair care products (shampoo and rinse-out conditioner). I've used my same shampoo and conditioner for years and just try to rinse without getting any in my mouth.  But I want to step up my routine and use some leave-in products (conditioning cream, anti-frizz, styling cream, etc.) and wonder if I have to worry about a stray hair strand or two getting in my mouth-  my hair is long.


Does anyone worry about these things?  Should I be?  Are there Gluten Free good quality styling products?  I specifically want to use Devachan products, but most seem to have some sort of wheat in the ingredients.



Quinoa Reaction?

03 June 2015 - 02:06 PM

My company cafeteria sometimes does a quinoa specialty station, with sauces and add-ins.  I've had long talks with the manager there about my Celiac and they've been extremely accommodating - they were very pleased to tell me about this new option.  We've discussed all the ingredients, and they have a separate prep area, so I felt quite confident about eating from this new station.


But, I have to say that each of the three times I've had it, I've had kind of a 'rumbling' tummy afterward.  I'd like to think it's not gluten, but maybe just more quinoa than I'm used to in one meal.  Is it common to get a bit of a reaction from quinoa, that is not gluten-related? Or should I fear some sort of cross contamination?


It's black quinoa if that makes a difference, and I eat plenty of quinoa otherwise, though maybe not this much at once.



Lawry's Balsamic And Herb Marinade

I know this is McCormick and their labeling is easy, but I'm just wondering if anyone's used this successfully. I looked at the label quickly in the store but now can't get to it.
