Lecithin

Recommended Posts

I'm new here, and I just am confused about lecithin as an ingredient. I have been gluten -free for about a week, but have still used cooking oil spray and a protein powder with soy lecithin...only to read that it is a potential trigger?

Is this true?

Soy lecithin is fine, from a gluten free standpoint. However, quite a few people with Celiac disease are intolerant to soy, so that might be where the avoidance issue came from.

If you are allergic or intolerant to soy, lecithin would probably cause problems.

The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.
