Do those of you with soy intolerance also have a problem with "soy lecithin" in all cases? This ingredient seems to be in all chocolate except for Enjoy Life Bars and just curious of any of you who are normally sesitive to soy can tolerate this "soy lechithin" in small quantities? Thanks for any insight you might have.

I cannot tolerate soy lecithin either. It seemed to be a cumulative effect at first, but now I seem to react to it almost immediately, and if it is in tea, I react to it within minutes.

If it is in tea, bad news. So far, I'm okay with chocolate coatings--so, very small amounts, in very limited doses, preferably spaced out.

My daughter has a problem with all soy so she can't handle it in the chocolate, but we did just see that Lindt 90% dark cocoa has no dairy or soy in the ingredients. I loved that one beforehand so we will be trying it soon for the girls and I.

Thanks so much for these replies. Very helpful and based on this will continue to avoid. Thanks for helping me deal with craving that could have had bad consequences and keep me motivated towards healthier way of life! Will look for this Lindt bar, to be sure. :) Thanks Again!

News Flash! Wanted to make sure you knew this--when I went to check this bar out on (Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned) (I have to avoid 8 Main Allergens, not just wheat and soy)--I saw this and wated to let you know: "Safety Information

May contain traces of peanuts / tree nuts/soy bean/milk"

Thank you so much! I guess I will have to keep looking:( We are avoiding gluten, dairy, soy, eggs, fish, bananas, sweet potatoes and she can only tolerate little amounts of corn, so thank you again.

I can relate. It can be so hard to find good products that fit our needs. I found a "protein" bar called NuGo Free Dark Chocolate--it's gluten, soy and dairy free--they actually taste pretty good--decent chocolate flavor especially if you are otherwise limited and have a decent protein profile (I am vegan and have difficulty getting enough each day) they have some ohter flavors as well. I get them on Amazon. If you find any other products that are clean, please advise and I will do the same. Good luck! I feel for you!!!! :)

I am convinced since tracking the foods that I react to, that there is a BIG difference between organic and non-organic. The two main differences are pesticide residues and GMO's. Pesticide residues create a reaction of their own. Some are neurotoxins, which are some of the worst for me. PAN is a data base to look up fruits and vegetables and find out what they are sprayed with in the US. If you click on each pesticide listed you can see the symptoms caused by them. If they are from out of the country they can very well have DDT on them. That includes chocolate and coffee. DDT's half life in the body is 50 years!

An example is bananas. My mouth breaks out almost immediately with a non-organic banana. If it is truly organic (like I can find in Hawaii grown in a friend's yard) my mouth doesn't break out. Lately, some of the organic bananas I bought at WF made my mouth break out, so don't think they are really organic. Same goes for chocolate. I can tolerate organic, but not non-organic. Also, chocolate is a nut and I think I react to most nuts, some worst than others.

GMO's are another issue. I don't have proof right now, but I have noticed that more people reacting to corn which is mostly GMO now. I don't think our digestive systems were created to handle these different molecules. The newest research on GMO's shows they are showing up in Mom's blood and baby's blood. Yikes. An example is I can eat organic corn tortillas, but react to non-organic ones. Weird. It could be the organic factory has no chance of cross contamination. I am hyper sensitive celiac.

For protein, I found a great organic sprouted brown rice powder that is highly bioavailable. I love the vanilla flavor. Super clean. Found it on the internet. Also found a new sprouted tofu by Wildwood for those who tolerate soy beans. I can't usually digest regular tofu, but this one is great. I just finished my second container of it and no reactions! Wow. The sprouting turns the soy bean into a vegetable which is much easier to digest. Then they process it into tofu. So it is a very different product. My blood tests were negative for soy allergies, so think my reactions were because of the digestibility of regular tofu.

Pacific Organic Foods makes a great tasting organic almond milk. Almonds are one of the heaviest sprayed crops and they are all irradiated now (new law), so organic is best. They list on the box "Gluten free". I have been drinking it for 2 or 3 months now with no reactions. Plus it is delicious and low in carbs. I switched from an organic soy milk because the soy milk had too many sugar carbs.

I seem to be getting this too. Was a gradual build up at first, but now it's within half an hour, I generally have to go lie down for a while, my body starts to ache, neuro symptoms, weakness, headaches and irritability. Most of it goes fairly quickly, but I get left with the neuro stuff for days after. I just got done yesterday by a gluten-free crispbread in fact.

    • You might consider the endoscopy.  Like I said, some celiacs (about 10%) have negative blood tests.    The endoscopy can rule out other issues too (like Crohn’s).   Not all celiacs are wasting away either.  I hope they figure it out and you feel better fast!  
    • Yes, I do not take iodine salt as well (forgot to add it), I get bubbles after it... That actually worries me a little because in long run what is my thyroid going to say (I do not eat seafood so there is no source of iodine for me at all)? I tried taking iodine supplement but got bad reaction to it. I am taking DEVA multivitamin supplement now (that's vegan, gluten, dairy etc free) and this seems to cause no reaction (it does contain some iodine, so that's covered now) and the hand seems to heal quicker and better now. It does not prevent bubbles or flare ups from appearing, but the skin does seem to recover quicker (I don't know if it's the strict diet without deviation or the vitamins really). I'm taking it with digestive enzymes (also for vegans, and all-sorts-of-things-free) to make sure the vitamins are digested. I also get some neurological reaction to gluten and the other bunch of allergens - recently I ate chips (the package did not say it contained gluten traces, I found out about it only later) and I felt very weak and unable to stand properly, legs become very shaky (I am 31, not an old lady who you'd expect to feel weak at times). Sometimes I can get severe mood swings also. After taking absorbent medication I felt relief and the next day was normal. I never ever get such weakness bouts when on diet.  Thanks a lot for your comment and encouragement!
    • I was eating wheat and gluten at the time of the test. No test or diagnoses was done while I was in hospital they just Gave me a list of could be’s and nothing was done they just sent me home once the sepsis was gone. I went to my auto immune dr because they thought I had lupus or hypothyroid and he suggested having a colonoscopy to test for chrons and endoscopy to test for celiac after the blood work. Having the colonoscopy Dec 7th. Getting tired of being sick, bloated beyond belief all the time and just flat out drained and sluggish.  Gaining weight for no reason at all to which is strange. I read the blood work as negative as well just wanted to see if I was reading it right and see if I could get more info. 
    • So that means 20ppm or less for the cough drop? So it is safe? Does anyone know of any other cough drops?
    • Hi!  These results are negative.  However, you stated that you knew that you had a wheat sensitivity.  All celiac testing requires you to be on a full gluten diet for about 8 to 12 weeks prior to the blood tests or the results will be negative/invalid.  Were you eating wheat/gluten at the time?   Some celiacs are seronegative, but still have intestinal damage.  Some  are IGA deficient (this control test was not run).  Some test negative to many of the celiac tests like me.  I test positive only to the DGP IgA which you did not have.   What was your diagnosis given at the hospital?
