Confused About Soy

Recommended Posts

I'm finding conflicting information. Soy isn't on the list that the Doctor's office gave us however, I have found on a number of sites that soy is listed as a no no. On others isn't listed at all. Soooo in what form, if any, is soy safe? Soybean Oils? Soy Flour? Tofu? Just curious because I'm very confused.

Soy in general is safe for Celiacs. However, many Celiacs also have other intolerances, some of which are soy related.

Hi Jamie,

From a gluten standpoint, soy is perfectly safe. Soybean flour and oils are fine.

There are people who react to soy, but that's because they have an intolerance to it--not because it contains gluten. :)

So I can continue to cook with soy products providing they don't have any other banned ingrediants, yes? This certainly opens up more salad dressings, it's tough to find one without soybean oil! Thanks so much. I know I'll ask a ton of questions but one day DH and I will get this down.

Soy SAUCE isn't gluten free, with a few exceptions. Most soy sauce is made with wheat and soy.

Luckily one of the mainstream brands (La Choy) is gluten-free. Other than that, I think it's only one or two others that are gluten-free. My favorite is San-J Wheat-Free Tamari. I think it tastes a lot like Kikkoman.
