Is There Any Chocolate Without Soy

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I think that soy makes my nose and cheeks tingle. About a week or so ago, I started eating dark chocolate and my nose and cheeks started to tingle. It went away after a couple of days. I tried chocolate yesterday and guess what.....tingle! Drats. So now it is gluten, soy or chocolate in general, eggs, and milk. Cheese and sour cream seem okay. What do you think? I wonder if my other neuropathy issues are soy too?

Enjoy Life makes chocolate chips without soy, gluten or dairy. I find them in the organic section of my regular store, Wegmans, and also at my local health food store.

When I was on the elimination diet I had a chocolate craving and asked at my local health food store if there was any such thing as a gluten, soy, and dairy-free chocolate bar. They called me back and told me the name of it, which I of course forget right now, but when I'm back in there (I go fairly often) I'll check for you!

There are a number of dairy and soy free chocolates, but most of them are the more expensive chocolates.

The ones that come to mind at the moment are:

Theo

Cluizel

Castelain

(I don't remember the others at the moment)

I understand Pacari is as well, but haven't tried it yet myself. If I'm ordering a bunch of chocolate, I generally get it through chocoworld.com, as some of these are harder to find, but i've been surprised by what I find at specialty grocery stores and cost plus world market.

ENjoy Life also makes chocolate bars, too, including one like the gluten-filled Nestle Crunch. I found them at the local health food co-op.

I buy the Enjoy Life products. They don't contain any soy. They taste really good too! B)

If you are craving brownies Trader Joes makes a yummy gluten-free, dairy free, soy free and nut free brownie mix. That or an Enjoy life bar usually satisfies my craving these days.

There is a great list at http://surefoodsliving.com/ . The list contains allergen information for the top 8 allergens - wheat and soy included. Hope this helps. I personally don't eat soy. If you live in the USA you are most likely consuming non-fermented, GMO - (genetically modified organism) soy. Remember when you hear people talking about the health benefits of soy they are referring to fermented soy - tempeh, miso, natto, soy sauce. The offenders are what we are normally exposed to - soy milk, soy in candy, soy lecithin, soy oils we see in canned and frozen foods. Japan reports great health results with soy, however, in Japan soy is consumed sparingly and only fermented, non-GMO soy. Here are some links with good information about the perils of unfermented, GMO-soy.

^They've also been consuming it for generations as well, so that lowers the risk :/
