Soy Lecithin

13 posts in this topic

Well I already know that soy makes me sick. I have really been trying to talk myself into the fact that soy lecithin won't bother me.

Wrong. Maybe I can get away with one Sees bordeaux. Although now I'm scared. But that's it. I got a box for Christmas. I apparently can't do 3 one day, and 2 the next day without paying the price for over 24 hours. It felt just like being glutened. Nausea, severe fatigue and muscle weakness.

Will this ever go away? Will the soy intolerance go away? Soy is in flipping everything. I can't find a salad dressing that does not have soy in it. And now I'm supposed to give up See's bordeaux to this stupid disease?

Ugh.

Soy overall, probably not; soy lecithin, maybe. I can do it now. But that's after four years or so.

Well that's better than nothing! I'll take it.

Since my diagnosis 8 1/2 years ago and going gluten-free, I have had to take one food after another out of my diet: corn (which causes me gluten reactions/damage), dairy, soy, beef, pork, sulfites (onions, garlic, brussel sprouts, cabbage, and a hundred others). I can only do very few things with soy lecithin in them. I think it has to do with how the particular soy lecithin is made and if the soy proteins have truly been "processed out." I think my problems all come back to leaky gut so this year, my plan is to go on the extremely limited diet to try to heal it. Hopefully, someday I'll be able to eat like a semi-normal person again. Gluten-free wouldn't be so bad if I could eat all the other things that keep coming out of my safe foods.

It could go away. It did for my daughter but... Now she has a thyroid problem so still has to avoid soy.

Before the thyroid problem, her soy issue went away? Or just soy lecithin?

It took my daughter a year to get all soy back, it may have been sooner but I waited to try it with her since she is young.

Hi Kiki, soy lechitin gives me heart problems (extrasystoles). I also avoid it because of my thyroid disorders, and I am currently making my own pretty much anything. Have you tried looking up recipes to make your own salad dressings et cetera? I never use dressings, but I am pretty sure it can't be impossible to make?

Soy is now officially my worst enemy.

I also like to think that a little soy lectin won't hurt me. And probably a very little of it won't. Like, 2 chocolate chips or something. Maybe.

More than the tiniest bit send my head spinning in minutes. It's not worth the risk.

You can indeed get things without it, though it takes serious hunting, and shelling out more. Get organic dark chocolate, usually the darker the better. Check your local organics store to see what they have. I think some of the Green & Blacks chocolate is ok.

Enjoy Life and Camino dark chocolate chips are soy free.

Salad dressings - get something vinegar based. Again with the organic. Though I just found some vegan and soy-free "cream" dressings. Can't remember the name. Uses a lot of coconut instead. I got the ranch. It's runny, but not bad.

Ask at your local store and maybe they can help. Making your own is also a good idea.

Oh! and soy-sauce substitute: Coconut Aminos. It's made from coconut sap, is a bit sweeter than tamari, but it does the trick.

For me the effects of soy are worse than dairy and, for immediate reaction, almost worse than gluten. It suuucks!

Good luck.

I found a recipe for easy mayo -- so I will try that this weekend. And I found a ranch dressing recipe I will try. :)

Thanks for the tips! I only like milk chocolate, but I can probably live without it. It's just disappointing. I really don't understand why soy is in nearly everything these days.

If you're ok with milk, then there is probably some soy-free milk chocolate out there too.

(If you're ok with milk, then I'm jealous. I miss cheese so much!)

Good luck!

Pegleg84 thank you so much for this. I've finally accepted that I can't have soy anymore, but I love stirfrys. My daughter has decided she's vegetarian now, so stir frys were my go to meal. I'd do tofu for her and meat for her dad and I. I was wondering how this was going to work. I'm going to look for the coconut aminos today. :)

Amen to that! I can deal with giving up milk, yogurt, and ice-cream, but cheese?!? That one is so difficult. And sorry to all you vegans out there, but that vegan cheese is NOT the same.

Look at a good natural foods store, or ask if they can get it. It's a bit pricy, but it's worth it.

    • It's not the Teflon that is the problem. It is the tiny amounts of gluten that are hidden in the cracks of previously used cookware. Personally, (and I have had this confirmed by the UCLA celiac center), it is not necessary to purchase new cook ware when going gluten free. Once you have cleaned the cookware well and cooked on it a couple of times with gluten free food, all of the gluten will be gone. What IS necessary is to not continue to cook gluten containing items in those pots and pans. Now that you have your new pots and pans (and hopefully a gluten-free colander and a toaster), label them all gluten-free or not). Don't cook any gluten containing foods in your new pots and pans and you should be good to go.
    • Short answer to this:  Has anyone else been through the denial phase and emotional upset upon realizing the life changes that have to happen just to feel better when eating? All of us!!!!!! It's mourning & it's normal. Breaking down in the grocery store & sobbing? Yep. Normal & I think we've all done it at least once if not multiple times. I would love to say more but dinner is calling me to go make it so I have to run for now. HUGS!
    • I found out roughly 3 -4 months ago by accident that I am gluten sensitive.  One day I woke up and had joint pain in just about every joint on my left side. ie, elbow, wrist, knuckles, hip, knee, ankle and feet.  I was already having issues with intense foot pain that I mistook for plantar fasciitis.  Once I googled the symptoms, and realized ALL of several other things were happening at the same time as a result of gluten as well, I knew the answer.  I had been bloating in my belly for decades, and also having migraines for years,  but as of this year, I was looking VERY pregnant after each gluten episode. This was highly upsetting.   I am 52, and fairly active otherwise.  I had Migraines, depression, anxiety and now joint pain and peripheral neuropathy.  I'm on anxiety meds, and have hypothyroidism and diabetes 2.   Getting to the bottom of the problems with my symptoms finally, has been exhilarating and exhausting at the same time.  I cannot test for Celiac because my insurance won't pay for this since I am not anemic and have no family history of Celiac.  Since I have been eating gluten-free, I have been feeling better, besides the mistakes that produce symptoms within 30 min-an hour. When I make a mistake, my symptoms come on faster and faster, and also more intense.  For example, I ate at a restaurant thinking I was okay, and by the time I got home and exited the vehicle I looked 7 months Prego, and my feet felt like I was walking on razor blades. The last week or two has been the best for not making mistakes, and finally I can eat without feeling horrible. Here's the thing:  I still can't wrap my head around this!  I comb through the forum for answers and have learned so much!  I have an extremely supportive boyfriend.  I just am in so much denial about this.  It's emotional for me and some days I just can't handle it.  I know many people with full blown Celiac's disease have it way worse than I do, I just can't deal with this very easily.  Has anyone else been through the denial phase and emotional upset upon realizing the life changes that have to happen just to feel better when eating?  What did you do about it?
    • The basic idea is that you don't want to use something that might have gluten in/on it.  Pots and pans are easy to wash and get clean - a colander is not - all those little holes full of pasta goo.  A toaster with crumbs.  
    • Newbie mom of 15 yr old DD diagnosed 3 weeks ago. Just purchased brand new Farbwrware, nonstick items. Are these safe to use for her needs? Is it just scratched or oldish Teflon that's not suitable or all Teflon? These will only be used for gluten-free cooking. Trying to learn e as we go.
