Bloatilla The Tum, yup that’s me.
Let me go back in time a few days. Nosing around the gluten-free shelves upstairs at Fairway a few weeks ago, I spotted some of the Josef's line of cookies. A local GF company, right from Brooklyn. I was very excited, creme filled GF delights! I opted to try something simple to start, vanilla cookies, no crème.
I noted that they were made in a GF, nut-free facility, RAH!
I also noticed that part of their GF flour mix included soy. Hmmm.
My history with soy these last few years has been complicated. I cut it out entirely by 2005-2006 due to some tummy issues. But that was now over two years ago. I had a soy mishap recently (and I mean GF soy sauce) and my tummy was upset for about 12 hours but not majorly and mostly ignorable. So I was thinking that my stomach is so much better these days that I could try a product with soy flour.
I was clearly wrong.
This is not a reflection on Jo-sef’s fine product; it is clearly my error for trying something with soy flour as a main ingredient. The result: three days of Bloatilla The Tum. Yup. I will spare you the intimate details but lets say the past three days my body told me: no soy.
Such a shame because the cookies were delightful.
Has anyone else who is GF and NOT soy-free tried their product?
