Betty Crocker Devil's Food Cake Mix--Soy Free
0

6 posts in this topic

While browsing the grocery aisles the other day I noticed Betty Crocker gluten free products have a new design on the box.....I loved their Devil's Food cake mix when it first came out, but then they switched the flour mixture  to a formula that included soy flour, which I am allergic to. Out of curiosity I picked up the box and read the ingredients.......no more soy!! The box does say "may contain soy ingredients" but I've never had an issue with many products that contain the words "may contain xxxxx". I live at 4,000 feet and never had a problem with this product coming out perfect every time. BC is also now selling an all purpose rice flour blend. I'm so tired of cooking everything from scratch because of my food allergies, that I am now leaning toward buying convenience mixes.....at a reasonable price. I also love the King Arthur brand, but BC often has coupons which I always use. Kudos to Betty Crocker.

I always am astounded by the amount of things soy is in. I consider myself beyond fortunate that I can get away with lecithin without ill effects, but the tradeoff is that I can't do the oil which doesn't have to be listed as an allergen. <_< I've never tried any BC products because of the soy but this is great news. While they're always a little pricey, I have seen coupons so if I can snag a coupon I may grab a box or two to try and see what I think. I do usually prefer baking from scratch but lately I've just become so freaking sick of being in the kitchen that the thought of going into it for a glass of milk seems like being there too long. :ph34r:

I went back to my local supermarket to buy another Devil's Food  cake mix...be very careful....an old box was on the shelf and I almost accidently purchased it. The newer gluten and soy free box has a photo of a cupcake on the front......the old mix has a photo of a slice of cake on it.

 

I can get away with eating soy lecithin in small amounts, but soy flour bothers me if I eat it more than 2 days in a row.

I, too, was thrilled to see it no longer has soy flour. I had a very adverse reaction last summer that lasted for a couple of days. we have been eating a cake I made with lemon icing yesterday. So good!

    • I actually looked into growing my own, I hear they grow GREAT on coffee grounds. Issues is all starting seeds, and spore batches EVERYWHERE are on rye, wheat, and barely seeds. LITERALLY, the standard for growing them is planting the spores on gluten containing grains. Check yourself on this, while mentioned in several articles the gluten protein is not in the grown mushroom cap/plant. If anything I might have issues with gluten at the base or stalk in which case playing it safe by just harvesting the caps and washing them would be good. I just wish they would use something like buckwheat, rice, sorgum, etc for a seed to put the spores on........I know it is paranoia just saying. Side note I have had no issues with the last 7 batches of mushrooms I have purchased, I even tried the overly sensitive nima on a batch of them blended with a smiley, and these where unwashed ones. SO yes it is a hit and miss thing. I found some brands have never given me issues like a few local portabellos, and polar canned. While others from a local farm got me twice with the bella mushrooms.   As to Gemini response, yes I have the same issues with certain foods always making me sick......olives, peanuts, pork, few others, No logical reason I just very sick and start puking violently when I eat them.    I will admit sometimes things make me sick in weird ways almost like gluten but not. Hell last time I spent 4 days on a elimination diet just ot learn it was the oddest things, a batch of rancid almond butter was doing it. I thought it was just overly roasted but fact was it was just starting to go rancid. I know this was not gluten by day 2 as I analyzed the effects which were a little different.  
    • Hi Mermaid's Mom I used to always feel very hot and found it very difficult living in a hot country, which I did a few years ago.   Since my diagnosis and adopting a gluten free diet I've felt cold in a way I never have before.  I don't know if it is a coincidence, but it seems to me a bit too much of a coincidence! I think the first port of call is to check if your daughter has a thyroid issue.   I assumed that was my problem but the TSH and T4 tests say things are good, but my friends on this forum say I need to have other levels looked at so possibly I do have a problem lurking. Problem is that here in the UK it is difficult to have 'a full thyroid panel' under the National Health Service.  If you can get one for your daughter it would be worth a try, I'm sure.    
    • So 3+ weeks gluten-free.  She is on B12 weekly injections, iron and magnesium supplements. She has ALWAYS run hot.  Never - literally never cold. I noticed that she is now sleeping in socks and a hoodie.  Every night. Now during the day she has more than a few times said she is freezing. Now I have ALWAYS been a freezing person.  The only one -everyone else in the family runs hot but me.  I am abnormally cold.  But even I am not cold when she says she is?? Any thoughts?
    • Knowing my luck, the fish would get Celiac disease and I'd have to stop eating them too!!! lolol   Thanks.......
    • You can try some basic tips: Eat a high-protein breakfast. Avoid sugary drinks and fruit juice. Drink water a half hour before meals. Choose weight loss-friendly foods. Eat soluble fiber. Drink tea. Eat mostly whole, unprocessed foods. Eat your food slowly. Don't be so upset. A lot of people don't receive results when they just start their diet. As for that was the same when I started my diet, I start losing weight on the third month. I try to avoid some food and especially coffee I threw away coffee from my life. So I drink only tea, I bought special Tea here. I think you can try it too. Keep going!
