Soya is safe to eat for most coeliacs.

However do be aware that about 20\% cannot tolerate soya either.

soya milk: from roz on 2008-05-11

can anyone tell me please, should children only drink soya milk and avoid other milks?

cheers anyone x

soya milk: from Peter on 2008-05-11

Only a very small number of children need to avoid cows milk for medical reasons. Cows milk is a very useful addition to the diet for children, It should be full fat milk, not skim or reduced fat.
For those children not able to take cows milk, goats milk should be tried.

Soya milk causes problems to more children than does cows milk. It is also a source of phyto-oestrogens that interferes with the sexual development in boys and girls. I would not recommend it for children.

I see that you have posted a lot of info so I wondered if you might be able to help me too. I'm supposed to be gluten free, corn free, soy free, dairy free, sugar and all sweeteners except stevia free, peanut free,yeast free, and more. I'm currently trying to make or find recipes to bake such as breads, cakes, cookies, etc. that will fit into these restrictions. Is there any chance you can lead me to some help.

Gluten free plus soy free plus dairy free is not uncommon. Corn free as well is unusual. Sugar in the diet cannot be avoided - and there are several different sorts of sugar - but you can avoid adding extra sugar.

So the first question I would ask is what is the basis of the diagnosis?

You can bake with eggs, rice flour, sorghum, gram, potato, sticky rice flour, tapioca flour, chestnut flour, sago flour, various oils - I use olive oil for baking. You could use lard.
Other useful ingredients: ground almonds, cocoa powder ( not chocolate) , coconut flour / cream.

I tend to eat very little baked food. breakfast is freshly cooked rice with fruit. Lunch rice or baked potato with vegetables, supper - main meal, meat or fish, potato, variety of vegetables.

Hope that is useful
