For Those Of You With Soy Allergy...

does soy lecithin and soybean oil bother you? I was pretty sure I had read somewhere that soybean oil and lecithin are NOT suppose to bother people with soy allergy, but I am sure both bothers me. Maybe I am wrong, and that soybean oil is also bad?

Thanks!

Soybean oil absolutely makes me dizzy within 10 minutes of ingestion. I do not have an allergy to soy, just intolerant because of the gluten/casein/soy connection.

I can now handle the soy lecithin (in chocolate - maybe that's why :P ) but not the soy bean oil.

huh, interesting. You know I think the thing I'v learned the most is: nothing is absolute. What works for one person doesn't always work with the next.

Lecithin doesn't bother me, I can tolerate the oil once in a while but not too many times in a row.

I can have the oil once in a while and not too much. I do my best to avoid it. I'm not sure if lecithin bothers me or not because I avoid it too. Chocolate gives me major heartburn and that's the only thing that I see soy lecithin in alone that I could try for an experiment.

Soy oil bothers me and I avoid it like the plague, but I refuse to give up chocolate...so I say that I can tolerate lecithin!

I don't know for sure, but that's my story for now.

HaHa!!!! You sound like me; wouldn't touch the oil but walk through fire for chocolate! :lol:

I absolutely avoid the oil. Just a few Tostitos will give me that stabbing pain. I will occasionally allow small amounts of the lecithin, usually only for the sake of convenience. I drank those Boost protein shakes every day when I first went gluten-free but had to drop them because of the soy lecithin.

As for chocolate... Enjoy Life make allergen free bars called Boom Choca Boom. They make milk and dark. The dark tastes more like real chocolate... the milk tastes like a really cheap hollow Easter bunny :(

Ghiradelli is also an option: the higher the cocoa percentage, the lower the amount of other ingredients. I stick to 80+%.

I don't get Boom Choca Boom here but I do eat Lindt 70% which has no soy lecithin. Never eat anything under 70% because those are the ones that require the emulsifiers. But even some of the higher cocoa percentages do have soy lecithin and I have been known to indulge. However, there was a hug box of chocolates passed around several times at our opening night of bridge for the year last night, and I resisted!! ( :( cosI didn't know about the gluten, mainly). Looking forward to trying Boom Choca Boom in June, and getting back to Ghiradelli which I used to eat long before gluten free :D

Mushroom, I love it when you like my jokes.

You laughed at My Grain Headaches :rolleyes:

and now about Chocolate! :D

That makes me happy cause like...um...I been in bed with this disease for 7 years and haven't made anybody smile, and I certainly wasn't smiling either. <_<

Thanks for making me smile.

And thanks everyone for the chocolate information!!!

    • I'm going to play Captain NCGS to Posterboy's Professor Pellagra (No doubt the Marvel and DC Cinematic Universes will soon be bidding for our services) and say that regardless of the blood test results, this: is exhibit one. You have a reaction to the gluten free diet. That doesn't necessarily eliminate fodmaps or issues with other components of wheat, but it's at least suggestive and the main reason I think you need to get back on it and give it a longer go. In fact, as I hinted at in the previous post, I'd be doing my 'goodbye gluten' top 10 croissant and bagel bucket list because I don't think you should go back to it simply based on exhibit one. It's messing with you in a way that it shouldn't. I had sciatic back pain for 20 years which I attributed to a disk injury. It was left sided and when bad travelled down my left leg following the sciatic nerve. I had all the scans, treatments, exercises etc. Nothing really worked and it was at times intensely debilitating.  Drum roll... Gluten free diet cured it. My new theory is that gluten related inflammation was localised in that area and it caused the pressure on the nerve. Now why there and not elsewhere? No idea, but it could be inflammation causing your pain? I went for several diabetes tests because I would suddenly become very weak, hungry and I would feel unwell. Weak, hot, light headed, on the verge of passing out. The tests were normal but I knew that I seemingly had a blood sugar issue. Another win for the gluten-free diet.  It sorted the tremors in my hand (begone thoughts of early onset parkinsons or ms) and the nerve twitching under my eye and etc etc. well you get the point. I've said above I sometimes wonder if I'm undiagnosed celiac but there are certain aspects of NCGS which seem to fit me and maybe you too. My digestion stomach etc is much better now but I wouldn't have said before all this that it was particularly bad. I read this http://www.bmj.com/content/345/bmj.e7982 and I have a similar experience that neuro symptoms were more apparent than digestive in the 'classic celiac' model. (more of that sort of thing here though I already sent you the Umberto Volta I think. I would be fascinated if you, your brother and myself were to do the gluten challenge and then take this test: http://www.medicaldaily.com/non-celiac-gluten-insensitivity-blood-test-392850 what the result would be. But you know what, unless the scientists put out a call for more volunteers I won't be doing it. In the search for answers, validation, certainty, it's easy to forget the real goal, feeling better. After several years on the gluten-free diet I feel better. I'm no longer thinking that the next bout of chest pain will be my last minutes on earth. I no longer worry about going blind because half my vision has gone grey, I'm not trembling, I don't have cardiac arrythmia, I don't have rheumatic pain, I don't have crippling back ache like I'm 40 years older, I don't get  faint, dizzy and heart pounding when I stand up,  I don't have brain fog, anxiety, depression (well sometimes!), painful stomach cramps, weird white tongue, rashes on my torso, horrible greasy skin on face, horrible dry peeling scalp, sores on my scalp and neck, white spots on my fingernails, I'm not sweating so much I have to douse myself in antiperspirant, I don't have all this and more and I don't have a letter from a doctor saying I have celiac and I don't give a **** about it. I don't have gluten and as the Godfather of soul would say...  I feel good  Feel good IT. You've done as much as anyone could to find an answer. Maybe there's one around the corner or maybe there'll be one in 5 or 10 years when the likes of Marios Hadjivassiliou, Umberto Volta or Alessio Fassano have completed their research. Or maybe not or never. It's in the 'nice to have' than the essential's for me now. Do the diet, note your symptoms, stay connected with your doctor so that if there is anything that sticks around suggestive of other things you're on top of it, but feel good and focus on that and enjoying life.  All the best!    
    • I think he's right. It's a hard burden at times at any age but there will be particular challenges for your daughter as kids don't want to stick out or have to be continually monitoring things like their food. Check out this advert from a UK retailer. Beware it's so sugary it could probably give a diabetic person a sugar crash! Maybe you could do similar? Just get or make a selection of kid friendly foods but don't say anything about it to your daughter, just everyone go in and start filling their plates.  If she asks you if you've done anything for her you just tell her that she can eat everything on the table. At least this would show both that choice is still available to her and that because everyone is eating the same thing that she won't feel like she's being singled out?  
    • Hi Michael and welcome The celiac diagnosis process can be a little confusing. Some time ago I tried to put together some info and links that may be of help:    The key point would be to stay on gluten until you and your doctors are satisfied that celiac has been excluded. In your case that may include another test with a more complete panel as CyclingLady says above. If you go gluten free independently during this time you risk invalidating the results and adding to uncertainty. The second suggestion would be that should you succeed in eliminating celiac as a diagnosis then you have nothing to lose from trying the gluten free diet. I tested negative on blood and endoscopy, but removing gluten resolved or greatly improved a whole load of symptoms including anxiety, depression and that feeling of not being right that you outline above.  I say greatly improved because I can still suffer from anxiety or depression, as anyone can, but if I do, they're nowhere near as severe as they were when I was consuming gluten.  In the meantime, one thing you could do is to keep a food journal to see if you can track any relation between what you eat and how you feel. It's good practice for if you later try the gluten free diet and you never know what you may learn.  This is a good site full of friendly help and advice. I hope you get the help you need

    • Good advice Ennis!  I would add baking and freezing some gluten-free cupcakes to have on hand, so that she is never left out.  Be sure to read our Newbie 101 tips under the coping section of the forum.  Cross contamination is a big issue,  If the house is not gluten free, make sure everyone is in board with kitchen procedures.   Hopefully, your GI talked about the fact that this AI issue is genetic.   Get tested (and your TD1 child).  TD1 is strongly linked to celiac disease.  About 10% of TD1's develop celiac disease and vice versa.  Get tested even if you do not display any symptoms.    http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/diagnosing-celiac-disease/
