Can You Have Soy If You Are Gluten Free?

I am now gluten intolerant. I am a little confused. Do you have to eliminate soy too? Lots of things are wheat free but then it has soy. Can we have soy?

Soy is gluten-free. Some people with celiac disease are also intolerant to soy, but certainly not all of us. I have no trouble with soy.

Thank you. I think I am getting the gluten free part. But still have confusion over things that are ingredients in products. I guess it is the wording that gets me.

I also have a burning in my mouth and gums. Could this be from being gluten intolerant?

Gum/enamel problems and sores are relatively common with people who have celiac disease, because most of us have some kind of vitamin deficiency. Smoking makes dental problems worse. Consult your dentist for advice on how to address these problems.

everyone has different symptoms, it's hard to say if yours are specifically from gluten intolerance or from something else. Burning sensations in the mouth I think are more common with allergic reactions rather than an auto-immune reaction. When do you notice the burning? All the time, or only with certain foods?

Many at least start off with issues to common allergens, soy, dairy, etc until things heal up. Dairy and soy get me bad. Heck, it seems like my GI accepts and rejects things at will with no rhyme or reason.

Just a side note! Some products are wheat free but not gluten free, you will want to look for products that are labeled gluten free therefore making them wheat free...Wheat free means no wheat but could have rye or barley....

1. Look for "gluten-free" label ("a naturally gluten-free food" doesn't always mean the product is gluten-free; three cheers for Wal-Mart brand, which likes to screw up "naturally gluten-free foods" by adding "may contain wheat" disclaimers.) If it is certified gluten-free, stick it in your buggy and move on to the next aisle.

2. Look for wheat listed (I tend to look at 2 products from same brand - one of which I am certain has wheat in it - and compare how they list their ingredients.)

3. Look for barley, rye, malt (not maltodextrose - that is safe) in the ingredients list - this will not usually be listed in the allergens, etc. area.

P.S. - Yes, soy is safe in terms of being gluten-free.

While I am not condoning this practice, my allergy testing revealed both a soy and tomato allergy (some time before any celiac-related problems arose, etc.) I don't pay attention to either, only focusing on the gluten-free side of things.

This is good to note. I found some products at Walmart that are gluten free. Watching for the barley and rye too

I have the burning most of the time. I don't know of a certain food that causes it. I don't eat things that are acid.

Be careful of Wal-Mart brands. Wal-Mart has done a better job at labeling their products, but they still sometimes have gluten in products that most other brands don't (canned vegetables, for example.)

I have just found out i am gluten intolerant and these posts have been very helpful in finding answers. And in one article (not on this site) said that soy is gluten free. I was excited cuz there is a lot  of soy in most everything it seems. But i also saw an article in "about Health" that says, 

 

Pure soybeans do not have gluten in them, since the gluten protein responsible for reactions in celiac disease andgluten sensitivity only occurs in the grains wheat, barley and rye.

But unfortunately, that's not the end of the story for soy and gluten.

Soybeans commonly are grown in rotation with wheat crops. That means the farmers use the same fields to grow soy and wheat, along with the same combines to harvest them, the same storage facilities to keep them and the same trucks to transport them to market. As a result, soy can be subject to gluten cross-contamination — in some cases, lots of gluten cross-contamination.

For example, a 2010 study by celiac dietitian Tricia Thompson on gluten in so-called 'gluten-free' grains found that soy was one of the worst offenders — in fact, one sample of soy flour contained a whopping 2,925 parts per million of gluten (for comparison, less than 20 parts per million generally is considered "gluten-free," although many people react to even less gluten than that). This gluten free living is very confusing. So i guess its back to no soy again.  :(

Soy sauce caN be an issue. Most has gluten, but gluten free versions are available, and most good sushi joints now carry them.

Welcome to the forum, Drifter! :)  This thread is a few years old but it is always a good idea to make sure what we buy is truly gluten-free.  Soy, like anything else, can be CC'd when processed, especially when milled into a flour.  While most processed food containing soy has fairly small amounts of it and won't have much issue from field cc (like soy lecithin, etc), something like a soy flour (or any flour) definitely needs to be verified gluten-free before consumption, as it may be processed in a facility or on equipment with gluten containing grains.  This is why it is a best practice when buying gluten-free grains to get certified gluten-free or from a company that can verify its practices, since those are the most likely whole foods to be contaminated.  Now, whole soy things like edamame are an example of where CC isn't going to be as big of a deal.  But any processed food does need to be checked before we eat it.

Thank you Laura and this has been very helpful.  :)

    • No anti-sm(lupus)? Yes, anti dsDNA is for SLE(lupus). No ENA panel,anti-RNP, anti-SS-A, anti-SS-B, anti histone, scl-70, etc? I'd ask for a referral, if you feel that there is something going on. I think that would be a logical step because of the positive ANA and lack of investigation. 1:640 is definitely positive. 
    • My MCH is always high too. Have some other oddities but doc always say labs are great as well. I dont think they ever really bother with the MCH. I'm also in testing and showed negative on the same ones you did. My IGA is fine though. As far as the other tests, maybe your girls GI can order or you could try your primary. 
    • Hi there!   I follow a low histamine diet that Cycling Lady brought to my attention a long time ago.  Citrus fruits and their juices are histamine releasing foods.  High histamine levels can cause hives just like in an allergic reaction.  Here's a helpful site:   https://www.histamineintolerance.org.uk/about/the-food-diary/the-food-list/ I don't drink orange juice because because of the hives and stomach upset I get from it, and also because I'm type two diabetic and my system can't handle all the sugars in it.  High glucose contributes to inflammation. I also avoid things with added flavors and scents because they often contain sulfur components like sulfites or sulfates.  Corn products are often processed with sulfuric acid.  Some Celiacs, like me, develop a sulfite sensitivity.  Here's a helpful site:  http://www.thepatientceliac.com/tag/celiac-disease-and-sulfite-intolerance/ Garlic and onions are high in sulfites.  People who can't tolerate foods high in sulfites are often deficient in a trace mineral, molybdenum.  Molybdenum is also involved in blood production.  Here's another site:  http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=nutrient&dbid=128 So, there's not always a simple answer.  I'm leary of processed foods because you don't really know how they're processed and what really goes into them.  I'd rather stick to fresh foods.  Hope this helps.
    • No, no, no!  Don't cut yourself off from your friends and social life because you feel you can't eat what everyone else is eating!  I can't think of a single bar or restaurant I've been to where I haven't found something to eat.  It may not always be what I would like to order/eat, but I'm not sitting without food while everyone else is eating!  If I'm going to a private party or someone's home where I'm concerned about food selection, I bring my own, tell the hostess and without making a big deal of it, eat what I brought.  Other times I eat a bit before I go, snack on the veggies or other obviously safe food,  and eat when I get home. If I go shopping for the day or somewhere that it's difficult to pick up a quick gluten-free snack, I put a piece of fruit or a gluten-free granola bar in my purse in case I get hungry.   It's only a big deal if you make it one.  I have been gluten-free for 7 years.  My attitude about food is now this:  eating out is strictly a social event. I always find something to order though at times it seems the gluten-free selections are kind of bland, but I won't go hungry.  If I want a good, tasty meal, I make it for myself at home.  There is nothing that I can't duplicate in my kitchen in a gluten-free version.   It's only been a couple of months for you so I'm hoping you will gradually see that this becomes such a way of life that you won't even give it a second thought.  Your meal prep will take less time as you grow accustomed to this--any new diet takes time to learn.  Good luck and hang in there!
