Bisquick And Soy Allergy

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I tried the BC gluten-free Bisquick for the first time yesterday and now this a.m. I woke up with sudden major D. Had some symptoms yesterday as well that gave me flashbacks to glutening-a familiar fatigue that I haven't experienced in a LONG time and other symptoms last night that gave me memories of an ER trip before I was dx with soy allergy but right after consuming a product with soy, strange tightness in my chest-left.

After I tested pos. to soy 2 yrs ago and eliminated it, I haven't tried re-introducing it so I don't know what my symptoms are, aside from a little patchy skin thing with a little soy oil consumed. These symptoms, if they are, are very differnt from my usual food allergy symptoms. Anybody else like this with soy? anyone else soy-allergic react to the BC Bisquick? anyone else get that chest, I hesitate to call it "pain" with allergic reactions?

I was told stearnly to "be careful" with soy when I tested pos to it because it is a cross-reactor with latex to which I am quite allergic.

I'm not sure if my daughter is actually allergic to soy since she has never had allergy testing, but she does a major problem with it and she can not eat anything made with the gluten-free bisquick. When she has soy her reaction is more GI, within no more then 4 hours she will get D and when you change her there is coffee ground looking grit in her diaper and she gets red bumps and the grit will actually cut up her bottom.

I really wish I knew if she had actual allergies to the foods she has a problem with...I just know that with soy and eggs whenever we have tried them with her the reaction seems to get worse.

My gluten, soy and casein all cause similar reactions. I can not tolerate gluten free Bisquick or any of the Betty Crocker mixes. If they are not CC with gluten it has got to be the soy allergen warning on the box.

The Bisquick and the Betty Crocker mixes are made in the same factory. The chocolate cake mix has soy flour in it. I think this is where our problem is.

I also am very allergic to latex. How do you do with bananas? I heard that they were cross reactive with latex.

Hi GFreeMO,

I haven't tried bananas since my latex allergy dx. As a diabetic at the time I didn't have insulin so was avoiding them on a blood sugar basis. Now I have insulin but am no so comfortable trying bananas due to the latex allergy. I've decided to avoid the top three cross-reactors-bananas, avacados and kiwi. I was tolerating avacados for a while but had a reaction so have given them up. I have a number of other food allergies that are listed as latex cross-reactors but not sure yet if that's the connection or they are due to my suspected leaky gut. Time may help me sort that out.

I've been talking with others who are both latex and soy allergic today and learned that it is possible to have that chest tightness as part of a reaction...can be part of anaphylaxis...

No more BC for me I guess...

The reason that I asked about the bananas was because yesterday I tried one in my smoothie for breakfast and my left lung felt heavy. I wheezed a little and it felt like I had mucus in my lung or something but nothing came up when I coughed. It sounds similar to what happened to you.

So you and me both..No more BC. (not a huge loss though..it's expensive and it really isn't THAT good)

Pay attention to those symptoms gluten-free MO. Sounds like reaction to me. I am learning the hard way recently with increasing reactions. I had similar but much worse symptoms recently with an exposure to powdered gloves. Almost sent me to the ER. Couple weeks after that I walked into a shoe store and had a dry take your breath away on a cold day kind of cough and my kiddo looked at me and said mom, that's probably all the rubber in the shoes.

Wow, I would have never thought about the shoe rubber! I hear ya about the powdered gloves. So no more bananas, bisquick or BC. My ok foods keep getting shorter and shorter. :huh:

I react to the Betty Crocker Bisquick, too. For me, I think it's just CC. I'm super sensitive and react to very small amounts of gluten. I eat soy all the time without any problems, so I know it's not soy. I hope you're feeling better. :)
