  1. Thanks Arlene! However, a very short Google search using the string "Soy Wheat Rotation" yielded hundreds of articles about crop rotations including wheat, soy, corn and the list goes on. In fact, One short info article from Ohio State University http://ohioline.osu.edu/iwy/croprota.html recommends planting wheat following soy. It would appear there is nothing truly safe as far as crops go as it seems to be a largely common practice to rotate wheat with just about any other crop. Guess we Celiacs should just stop eating period! :-) Does anyone else out there know if wheat crop rotation is really a concern for those suffering from Celiac disease?
  2. I'm relatively newly diagnosed Celiac. My understanding of the whole Soy issue is that while Soy itself does not contain gluten, it is often suspect due to the high likelihood of cross contamination. This is due to the fact that most Soy growers also grow Wheat, Barley and Rye in rotation with their Soy crops. This means the soils are contaminated with the gluten containing grains and the equipment used to harvest and process the Soy is shared with the other gluten containing grains. So, the bottom line is, it's pretty much a crap shoot with Soy unless the product containing the Soy is specifically labeled gluten free. This would and should imply that the Soy used in the product is grown independently and isolated from other gluten containing grains.
