Unfortunately, as a Las Vegas allergist will tell you, it’s impossible to avoid developing a food allergy. However, you can at least learn about the food sources that contain soy to ensure safe dining.
If you see these items on a restaurant’s menu, steer clear:
● Soy-based cheese, yogurt, milk, and ice cream
● Soy sauce
● Bean sprouts
● Vegetable-based broth, oil, and starch
Soy can also appear in unexpected places such as canned meat, crackers, peanut butter, canned soup, and baked goods. Additionally, some types of natural and artificial flavoring may contain soy, too. If you have questions, you can also ask a staff member at the restaurant if a dish includes soy.
