I was just wondering if anyone knew, i just had to put my almost 3 year old son on a wheat free diet due to either celiac disease or an allergy to wheat (not sure yet which one it is) and i wanted to know if he could have food with soy or whey in it? I got some information on what he cant have and the list is VERY long but those two were not on it so if anyone could help me that would be great...

*I just put a title to your post*

Soy comes from soy beans. Whey comes from cheese (milk). If these are on the no list then he can't have them.

Go to a place called whole foods and ask if they can help or do a google search and
make sure to read all labels, everything that's listed...Wal-Mart is now selling gluten free products.
Good luck and well wishes on this...

There are allergy tests for wheat, blood test for celiac (although it's not highly accurate). You won't get an accurate reading unless he eats wheat for a while before the tests. See a good allergist. If the problem is celiac, it's necessary to get a diagnosis to avoid cancer.

There are plenty of foods without wheat - meat, vegetables, fruits, milk, juice, rice, potatoes, salad, ... Stay away from sauces unless you cook them yourself using corn starch or tapioca. Tapioca and rice make good puddings. Don't buy the store ones. Avoid sandwiches, quick, processed foods, fast food restaurants. Check out some recipes on the many gluten free websites.

I can't eat processed foods or a lot of restaurant foods with sauces and seasonings. I have worse sensitivities than just wheat, but at least it's a sensitivity, not an allergy.
