Hi, I have been diagnosed with Celiac disease 4 weeks ago. I thought I was getting a handle on the dietary needs by reading all the info I can find and meeting with a dietician. Today at my Dr. appointment he said I also had to be aware of cross contamination with Soy. I guess I'm back to the deer in the headlights feeling. I'm wondering if I could get some advice on where to start sorting this out? Thanks for any advice.

Generally, some celiacs are fine with soy; others are not. Its the same with dairy and nightshades; some people can handle them and others not.

He may have meant that most soy sauce contains gluten (wheat). It is clearly listed on the label.

Soy beans can be grown in the same fields (not at the same time, obviously). So it's not an outrageous concern.

But, I would suggest that you concentrate on removing all gluten from your diet for an extended time period. If....after you're satisfied that you have been "clean" from all gluten (as much as possible), then explore other potential intolerance's.

One step at a time! ;)

And welcome!

Good advice. I'm learning each time I log in I feel better every day without gluten in my diet. Thanks for the welcome.

I am also a new celiac and was warned of soy which I have found to be troublesome. Also tapioca which is disappointing since so many products that are gluten-free contain either soy or tapioca flours. Learning to cook decent means has been a challenge and I do miss bread terribly. Pizza was a fond memory until Dominoes gluten free which I actually find quite tolerable. I have a supportive boyfriend, however, and friends have finally stopped offering cakes, pies and cookies. I am new to researching it and looking forward to learning more. Thank you all for being here.

Are you saying that you think tapioca has gluten or that you cannot tolerate it? Tapioca flour/starch is a gluten-free product, which a lot of us use in baking. You might want to check these lists of safe and unsafe ingredients and also the Newbie 101 topic.

Edit: If for some reason you cannot tolerate tapioca, there are other starches that can be substituted in baking (potato starch, cornstarch, etc.)

Some of the dangers you will find will be in products like soy sauce, teriyaki, worchestershire, chicken and beef broth and other additive products. Archer Daniels Midland is a giant company that makes tons of food additives (citric acid, xantham gum, etc) and you'll need to learn which of those products are derived from wheat, barley or rye. Plus watch for things like "natural flavoring" as well. Sometimes those are safe, sometimes not. Your body will let you know, but that's the worst way to find a food contains gluten. I have an app on my phone just for gluten containing ingredients...basically lists whether they are safe or not. Works great in a crunch when I can't recall from the hundreds of ingredients whether something is safe.

Probably your doctor meant soy sauce, which usually includes wheat.

However, some celiacs (me included) end up with an intolerance to soy (including me). However, since you have just started eating gluten-free and are still healing, as another poster said, give youself a few months to heal before worrying about other food intolerances. If you're getting symptoms after that, then you can look at soy (dairy/casein is another common problem) as a culprit.

In the meantime, just be very careful when reading labels. There are great gluten-free soy sauces out there, and you can make your own teriaki, etc, or carry some with you to sushi restaurants and such.

Happy healing

Peg

    • Hello and welcome I'm sorry you're having such a tough time. There are lot's of people here who have been through tough times of their own and come through the other side. There's no shortage of support and good advice available. However, it would probably help if you could put down some details about what medical checks your Doctors have conducted? Have you had a celiac blood test for instance?
    • This pain is constant and nauseating it's in my back and stomach burns all the time.  My GI doctor barely knows about cealic they did an ultra sound came back clear.  I can't sleep my stomach hurts it feels like someone ripped a scab off and like it's being eaten by acid 24/7 I'm starting to fail school, I can't work because of the pain I feel like crying, I kind of just want everything to end I've been in pain for a year and half now and doctors are just taking my money and not solving the problem it's driving me insane. Just a burning nasunating feeling that never goes away, makes it hard to walk hard to live hard to drive to do anything I feel like I'm being tortured everyday.   dont know what else to do, I kind of hope someone on this site had similar pain and maybe can suggest what this may be? Because I can't function anymore.
    • Jersey Mike's Subs sandwich chain is known for its in-house baked bread, and tasty submarine sandwiches. To offer gluten-free buns for its customers, Jersey Mike's has partnered with Udi's. Starting in December, Denver-based Udi's will provide fully cooked, individually wrapped gluten-free buns at all 1,320 Jersey Mike's locations nationwide.

    • I only ever have black coffee, either espresso or americano (pretentious name annoys me but what can you do). It's listed as ok here: https://www.costa.co.uk/nutrition/Costa-ANI-data-November-2017.pdf so its only if there's cc that there would be a problem. I've been ok so far  
    • Just read the ingredients?  Its very unlikely to have gluten in pickled stuff or cheese (except the beer cheese).  Never seen a marshmallow with gluten (I like Kraft because I think they are better).  I use McCormick for most spices & vanilla..  they are just spices.  Never seen a vanilla with gluten.     IN the US, wheat will be clearly announced in the ingredients (its a law).  Rye is only in a few things like bread or crackers & its an ingredient so it will be listed as an ingredient.  Barley is listed as barley or malt (usually barley malt).  Brewers yeast sometimes contains gluten - so avoid.  Oats need to say gluten-free oats or the product needs to be listed as gluten-free.   Lots of pre-packed lunch meats actually say gluten free on them.  Go to the store and look!
