Soybean Oil

For those of you that are soy intolerant, do you react to soybean oil? I figured I should exclude it,but now I'm reading that it's not considered an allergen. I assume it's akin to ghee being ok for dairy intolerant folks since it is pure fat with none of the allergy-triggering proteins. Do you find soybean oil to be a trigger?

An intolerance is different than an allergy .

I am intolerant of soy and I react to soybean oil.

Right, but I believe I've read that the protein in an item tends to be the more reactive part. I have some allergies and some intolerances, but soy is an intolerance.

I react to soybean oil but my reaction is different than the reaction I get from other soy products. I get an instant migraine with soybean oil. Other forms of soy make my stomach hurt, give me fatigue, joint pain and joint swelling. I had a PA tell me one time that I should be able to tolerate soybean oil because of it not having the proteins, but everytime I have tested it I get a migraine. I trust my body's reaction over the theory that I "should" be able to tolerate it. You will just have to experiment if you want to find out if you can tolerate soybean oil.

I believe you may be thinking of soy lecithin, not soybean oil. I recently read why people who are intolerant of soybean oil are able to tolerate soy lecithin, and it's the same explanation that you provided for why people should not be intolerant of soybean oil. Personally, I have no problems at all with soy lecithin...but I definitely canNOT tolerate soybean oil, which makes me extremely ill. And, of course, food manufacturers have added it to EVERYTHING!! I want it out of my mayonnaise and out of my tuna! Because of the excess production of soybeans in the U.S. as a result of government subsidies, food manufacturers are using it because it's so inexpensive right now. Of course, it's all about making $$, so now we're stuck with soybean oil in everything.

This all started when I read and noticed that Wendy's doesn't count any items with soybean oil on their list of foods with soy. I thought it was an error at first. Then Pollo Tropical, which caters to special dietary needs, included on their allergen free food list that soybean oil is not counted because foodallergy.org indicates that most people allergic to soy can tolerate the oil.

Foodallergy.org states that the govt has specially excluded soybean oil from consideration as an allergen. It is exempt from needing to be disclosed as an allergen on foods based on medical studies. It goes further to say that some people allergic to soy can tolerate soy lecithin too.

While it applies to packaged foods, not restaurant meals, FALCPA specifically exempts "highly refined oils" from the definition of an allergen. It is not just soybean oil that is exempt.

Well, I don't eat any soy on purpose. But that's me and my preference. For you to know if you react you do have to try it yourself. But to know if you are reacting you should stop all soy for a month or two and then test soy oil. Although I think it is better to just use a different oil if there is any doubt at all. What's the big attraction to soy oil? Its not good for you and not a good choice for health reasons. Olive oil or corn oil are better.

Oh I don't use it myself. But restaurants and food makers sure do.

My worst reactions are to soy oil. Instant migraine and a feeling of "chemical haze" that lasts for 2 days. It's so bad I have to stay home from work, and I've gotten to be quite adept at working and socializing like nothing is wrong when I feel like my insides are dying. :)

I find it interesting that people feel they can decide that an allergy or intolerance follows a certain set of rules when no one really knows how it all works to begin with. If I react to something I stay away from every part. Good to know that it isn't regulated and labeled. That's bogus....and might answer some of my "mysterious" reactions.

Considering an anaphylactic reaction can be life threatening and is (medically )treated differently than a digestive reaction,,it can be important to differentiate between an allergic reaction and an intolerance

Personalty, I consider an anaphylactic reaction a symptom of an allergy .Digestive and neurological reactions I consider to be symptoms of an intolerance ,,but that is just me :)

It bothers me that the government regulations cater to allergy sufferers and not those with food intolerances, as if the intolerant people don't exist. My reactions are long-term only at this point, so I won't know if a restaurant grilling in soybean oil affects me.

I'm even scared of trying out ghee, which everyone swears is fine. I have an allergy and an intolerance to dairy. I won't go into shock from eating it, but I don't want to silently damage myself either.

    • Yeah I have 2 stationary pedal bikes. I use one on the desk sometimes while watching a show and work out my arms. I keep one under the desk and pedal on it for hours a day, really helps with my restless leg issues and stress (just gotta keep moving or I start feeling like a panic attack is coming on trapped by life like a rat in a cage. If you need to know were to find the ground cocoa nibs look up crio bru, they sell it as a coffee replacement for $23 for 1.5lbs they have different origin and different roast levels so you can get different flavored cocoa nibs I get several and mix them up.
    • Yeah the histamine thing hit home a bit for me, as it mentioned everyone has their upper limits on it...explains why green canned fresh tomatoes fine...overly ripe sweet ones....instant puking, and why I have to really limit anything the citric acid, lemon, lime, garlic, onion, etc to very small amounts. Sorta funny how that works. like everything has a invisible number and if they add up to above my limit I am puking Makes eating annoying sometimes lol.  OH bit of a thought, I RARELY make almond milk cause it leaves a almond paste behind that I only have one use for and if sales at the bakery are bad I am better off just buying the stuff at the store and drinking in moderation. ANYWAY I use the almond paste mixed with coconut flour, left over almond butter batches, xylitol, apple sauce, and a tsp of a extract of choice to make the almond butter mini muffins for my bakery. They are a bit of a product of recycled foods lol. Taste great, super moist, grain free, mostly sugar free, and I can eat them no problems...they also freeze for months.   Love making them with our pirate butter (butter rum), Cheese cake butter (dairy free cheese cake extract in the almond butter) or any of the others for that matter.  
    • Did you get any of your vitamin and mineral levels checked for deficiencies?  You don't have to be Celiac to develop deficiencies.   Peripheral neuropathy may be caused by deficiencies of B12, copper, vitamin E, B6, B1 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4208100/ Not dreaming can be caused by B6 deficiency. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11883552 Tachycardia may be caused by deficiencies of B1, B12, vitamin C http://www.livestrong.com/article/503879-vitamin-deficiencies-racing-heart/ Ehlers Danlos can be helped by calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, and others https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15607555 And that funky color of your colon, melanomas coli, vitamin E deficiency https://www.researchgate.net/publication/22087649_Ceroid_enteropathy_and_vitamin_E_deficiency IMHO, doctors would rather treat the symptoms than cure the real problems. Hope this helps.

    • Absolutely nothing to apologise for Awol. I'm sorry for getting on my sugar hobby horse. In any case I'm a dreadful hypocrite, cutting out fruit juice but still indulging cravings for gluten-free cheesecakes and the like I wish I had some advice for you. Bone broth helped me, I think it can help leaky gut, maybe worth a try?  Dr Fasano's diet could be another option?
