Does any one know if it ok to eat soy beans or edamame? Could it cause a flare-up? It is one of my favorite things to eat. Thanks for the input!!

Can't really say for sure, Just try some and see how your body handles them.

Welcome to HealingWell, Kimeeee. Diets are extremely individual for those of us with UC. What bothers one doesn't another. Sometimes it's helpful to keep a food diary for a while to see what bothers you, because it can be hard to sort out. What you eat today could bother you tomorrow or in three or four days, so you have to see the same results over time.

Try a little, see if it causes you any problems and go from there. I find that I can eat beans and other legumes in moderation when I'm in remission, but they cause a lot of gas and pain when I'm flaring. Foods don't cause UC or cause flares, but they can make the symptoms worse sometimes when we are flaring.

I drink soymilk every day and have no problems. I eat tofu about once a week as well. I have not had any plain soybeans though.

I personally can drink soy milk and eat tofu and be ok. I've been afraid to eat edemame because i just got out of the hospital because of a really bad flare. I'm waiting a few weeks to see if i feel ok to try it. maybe i'll wait a few days after my next remicade infusion. I love edemame and sushi. i'm afraid to eat sushi too. ugh. soon.

has anyone had any problems with seaweed...like from sushi rolls?

I haven't had any problems with seaweed in sushi. I only eat vegetarian sushi, but I feel fine when I eat it.
