What Gluten Free Chocolate Products Do Not Contain Soy

I have found so many gluten free chocolates - but everyone I have found has some form of soy included in the ingredients. Can you recommend to me some chocolate that is gluten plus soy free? I am so a chocoholic and I am no longer able to tolerate the many foods that have soy in combination to the chocolate.

Thanks for your help!

Enjoy Life makes some soy-free chocolate chips for baking and soy free chocolate bars: http://www.enjoylifefoods.com/

You may also want to look at some high-end organic dark chocolates. I know I saw someone post a few companies that make organic dark chocolate with not much more than cocoa but I don't recall the names. They were really pricey though.

I also really enjoy chocolate coconut milk ice cream made by Turtle Mountain. It's soy free as well as dairy free: http://www.purelydecadent.com/products/purely_decadent_Coconut_Milk_Chocolate.html

We are also dairy-free and the 2 brands we buy are Enjoy Life (already mentioned) and Terra Nostra. Not all of the Terra Nostra Ricemilk Choco bars are soy-free though. Stay away from the truffle filled one. It has soy.

Any idea if the Purely Decadent is gluten free? It doesn't say so on the label and there is "Natural Flavoring" in all the ones I was checking out today. Enough doubt to make me at least try to find out. Sure would love it if it was gluten free as well as soy and dairy free.

Thta's strange. The last time I had it, it also said it was gluten free on the seal where it now just says soy free and dairy free. I did a search on their site and found this chart: http://www.turtlemountain.com/products/TM_Products_GlutenFree.pdf

Which shows that the chocolate is gluten free (along with several other flavors). But if you are really worried you might want to e-mail them and make sure that chart is up to date. I swear it used to say gluten free on the label where is says soy free and dairy free.

Michel Cluizel, Theo, and Castelain are some soy (and gluten) free chocolates. Where you can find them depends on where you leave. I have ordered chocolate from ChocoSphere (online retailer) in the past and they were great!

I went to the store and found the purely decadent ice creams. They did not have the chocolate coconut milk one but all the others they did have did contain soy :( I read each label for the other flavors....boo hoo!

like chocolate ,lol, the taste is excellent but they do have a bit of a chalky texture,probably from the cocco,, my daughter suggested using bakers chocolate instead of cocco but I havent checked to see if it is soy free yet.

The Baker's brand unsweetened chocolate is soy-free and dairy-free. It is 100% cacao.

    • You make a good point about being neurotic. I'm slowly getting better. I guess time will tell. But thank you for the insight.   As far as roommates go, that's a good idea. I've definitely been thinking about that. But these guys are my best friends and the process of getting a new roommate this late in my schooling might be hard. Although, I will keep my eye out for the opportunity. 
    • Yes I have seen the allergist, dermatologist and tonight my general doctor and they all pretty much say I am crazy.  The dermatologist did a scratch test and the results came back saying allergic contact dermatitis.  So she has ordered a blood test for allergens gluten.  Will this be the proper test?  I know there is a celiac panel blood test as well.  My general doctor claims that a result that says allergic contact dermatitis means whatever it is needs to be in contact with my skin so it cannot be gluten, same as my rash comes and goes and she said since I eat gluten all the time it can't be DH and lastly since I don't have any bowel issues it can't be gluten.  I tried to dispute all of these from what I have read on here.  Believe me I hope it is not a gluten allergy, but I have not had an answer in 10 years so signs lead to this I need to explore it.  Why do all of the doctors not have the information that is being spread here, what is right?  I believe all of you guys as you have been through it.   Will the blood test for gluten allergy be sufficient?  Or should I have a full celiac panel or should I highly push for the punch test? Unfortunately money is an issue so I am trying to make sure the proper test is administered instead of just going through all of them. Thank you!
    • My son is 5 and his symptoms are all behavioral and neurological. If he eats a few pretzels he will develop something called a stereotypy where his fingers become sort of stuck in distorted positions for days. If he eats gluten he also experiences auditory and visual hallucinations, insomnia, loss of balance and fine motor, periods of confusion (doesn't know where he is), dialated pupils, chronic post nasal drip, keratosis pilaris covering torso, extreme behavioral issues, constipation and bloating. We've been to 3 neurologists, 2 allergists, an endocrinologist, psychological, psychiatrist, dermatologist,  infectious disease specialist and soon will see a gastroenterologist. He's tested negative for celiac and doesn't have the gene which would indicate gluten as an issue for him. Despite these facts, we entirely removed gluten and dairy from his diet and he is a normal happy playful child again, living the life he should be living.  He's had a few instances of dietary mishaps at school which were difficult to recover from. We implemented the AIP diet which for us included no grains (no corn, rice or quinoa), no dairy, no legumes (especially soy), no eggs and limited nightshades. Basically, we have been eating only vegetables, fruits, meats and nuts. Nothing processed. It works. Now we are at the point of adding things back into his diet and it's going well. We've determined that he's sensitive to a particular baking mix brand called Simple Mills. So there are only two possibilities to this a) Simple Mills brand isn't as gluten free as it needs to be or b)my son is actually sensitive to baking soda.  I also think he might be dealing with intestinal permeability or "leaky gut". I've been reading about a protein called zonulin and I question whether that could be a potential biomarker in our case. Prayers for your daughter. If you think it's a dietary trigger then you are right and I encourage you to never give up. You will find an answer if you keep looking. I promise.  
    • Well.... it can be... the plastic lid on the lovely chicken salad you brought for lunch sticks, you pull too hard and it, and half your salad going flying all over the company computer?  
    • @cyclinglady I heard that there were problems with Armour Thyroid when it came to gluten a few years ago. I thought it was no longer safe? @Megamaniac I had forgot to put that in my original post that I have a lot of issues with anxiety as well. I've never actually been officially diagnosed with a type of depression/anxiety/etc, but I've had problems with that ever since I was pretty young (I think before puberty). I'm sorry to hear about your medical field experience. I've actively sought out doctors (and got lucky having a great primary dr) over the past few years since very few seem to know much about it. The fact that a doctor would laugh at a patient for anything is pretty infuriating. Sorry to hear that. I went to a gastro that barely listened to a word I was saying and only offered a short term "solution" so I never went back to him.
