Do I Need To Be As Worried About C.c. With Soy, Corn, Etc As Gluten?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

hi everyone :)

i was wondering if i need to worry about cross contam with my other intolerances like i do with gluten? does anyone get sick from their food TOUCHING things like corn, soy, dairy, nightshades, peanuts, etc... or is that only a gluten thing? right now i'm being super crazy about gluten, and then just not eating things with my other intolerances in the ingredients. but not feeling 100% yet, so thought i would ask!

thanks!

How did you determine that you had those other intolerances? I found out that I am sensitive to very small amounts of gluten. I think that this is genetic. I found out that reactions that I was having that I was told were intolerances were actually due to traces of gluten. I found out that if I could get these items in a pure form, that I didn't react to them after all.

Do you know if you react to oats? If you do, then you have to be careful about oat cross contamination too.

I hope that you can start distance soon.

I have to be just as careful with soy as I do gluten. I'm pretty sensitive to small amounts of gluten, and the same with soy. Thankfully, the reaction soy gives me doesn't last nearly as long as a gluten one, but it makes me feel pretty gross for a couple of hours.

Although, I am one of those people that can handle soy lecithin, so, go figure :huh: So much of this is a trial and error, unfortunately.

I tested positive to soy protein. My doctor said I should be able to handle soy lecithin. Still, I'm scared to try anything that lists soy lecithin as an ingredient.

i noticed reactions to some of the intolerances (corn, peanut, soy, nightshades, rice) and the rest of the foods i'm avoiding (almonds, eggs, yeast, most nuts) showed up on an IgG test I had done from Immunolabs.

My Enterolabs results also said that i do in fact react to yeast, soy and dairy.

i too am super ultra sensitive to even a micro amount of gluten. i've really sworn off restaurants for now, i'll have to think about that again later...

so maybe for now i'll be super diligent about hidden corn and soy in products as well!

the other day at whole foods market i was buying veggies and grass-fed beef, and the checkout belt had flour all over it!! the poor employee did not understand why i started freaking out and handing the groceries straight to him :) haha

I ask the checkout lady to make sure that DH's bread is in its OWN bag, and I place it at the far end of the counter, and I put it away first thing when I get home, wash my hands, and then put the REST of the groceries away, lol.

My DS is severely allergic to milk, and we have to be just as careful about CC with that as with gluten. His aunt tried to give him bacon off her plate, and DH was like NO!! Don't do that!! LOL. They just don't get it...
