Just wondering if anyone out there is or knows anyone who is allergic to soy. If so could you please share any foods, brands, etc. which are free of soy. This info is for a small child who cannot eat soy and so far soy free foods are hard to find.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

My son is alleric to soy also, so I have had to seriously modify my diet also ( I am currently brestfeeding). Pretty much anything that has been processed (crackers, chocolate, instant foods) will have soy in it. Your best bet is to make things from scratch if you can. I have found that alot of products from Trader Joes grocery store are soy free. Cheerios are soy free, I eat those all the time. Check out this link to give you some more info about hidden soy in foods, this helped me alot www.oasisadvancedwellness.com/forum/viewtopic .

You can find soy free snack crackers at your neighborhood publix or bloom or any health food store. They are made by "Back to Nature". My son is having to go dairy and soy free for a little trial. It is very hard to find both.

WORKING MOM'S SUGGESTIONS FOR DEALING WITH SOY ALLERGIES
Soy is in EVERYTHING and we are now starting to make our own convenience foods to deal with our daughter's soy & nut allergies. Unfortunately, even health food is laden with soy...
1. Buy yourself a FOODSAVER so you can vacuum seal your own cooking. I now have 2 crock pots and when I cook, I fill the freezer with extra convenience food in vac-sealed baggies, which my husband simply heats up in boiling water so that we have dinner waiting when my daughter & I get home.
2. Look for CONVENIENCE MIX RECIPES on the internet. I've begun to put my own bread machine, cake, soup, and other mixes together and vacuum-sealing them for later use with the FOODSAVER. Found recipes for making things like bean soup mixes, RICE-A-RONI, PANCAKE MIX, soy-free cream soup mixes, etc. When making bread machine mixes, be sure to add a teaspoon of gluten for texture that is more like store-bought bread.
One weekend of pain to prepare a cupboard full of convenience mixes pays off handsomely and we've found the foods taste better than the preservative-laden convenience foods we were used to eating before.
3. SNACKS THAT GENERALLY DON'T CONTAIN SOY(but do check the label)
- Corn or rice Chex
- Dried fruit such as raisins or prunes
- Certain brands of Baby cookies
- Cheerios
- some brands of chocolate milk mix syrup
- Jello
- Gummy bears and similar candy
4. DINING OUT TIPS
Bring a kid-container of (soy-free) DINTY MOORE BEEF STEW & ask the restaurant to heat it up.
Ask the restaurant to poach eggs (no margarine), to prepare grilled fish or meat without any seasoning at all (ketchup can be added by your child), to boil or steam pasta and toss with cheese only, or to provide vegetables cooked in water only. Most will accomodate, but if in doubt, keep a few kid-foods in your car just in case. Watch out for hidden ingredients such as flavorings and margarines in foods-they invariably contain soy. Stay out of all oriental restaurants as soy is a food staple.

I have had soy allergies for about 30 years. Our local grocery store has a natural foods section and I am able to find many soy free foods. Check out your natural food sections at your grocery stores.

I have had soy allergies for some time and found many excellent products as www.soyfreesales.com . It is harder and harder to find products in the store without soy, especially chocolate.

My son is allergic to soy and milk products. Since I am breast feeding I have to change my diet as well. It took me 6 weeks to realize that my prenatal vitamins had soy in them.

*** Just be careful because anytime you see MSG, Monosodium Glutamate, Glutamic Acid or mono or diglycerides, HVP plus many others, it means soy...

Read lables. Check ingredients on everything. In a restuarant check the way a(food) is prepared for consuming. Pam spray is also a soy used in preparation of foods. Medicines also contain soy. Don't buy anything with miso, soya, soy sauce,soybean, Tempeh,TVP, Tofu, hydrogenated veg oil,lethicin & emulsifiers,MSG, or hydrolized protein. Stick to steak or lean chicken prepared without any soys. Check seasonings for soys and usually soups are a definitely a no-no. Tomatoe soup is ok for me but I cannot make it with milk. Life is very complicated but you just have to be extremely careful at home and while out in some restuarants or grocery stores.

I am also allergic to both soy and milk. Actually it is casein the protein that I can't digest. Imagine has a soyfree and caseinfree milk product. It is very delicious plus they even have a chocoloate milk. Medicines also have soy or milk in it sometimes. I eat a lot of lettuce with olive oil and Good Seasonings. Pam cooking spray has soy in it also. REad the fine print on everything before purchasing. Be careful when cooking. Roads end's organics has a dehydrated cheese that is safe for me to eat. If you go to a Health food store one of the best aisles is for Gluten Free foods. I have found more available foods in that area than any other. Good Luck!

I drink Rice Dream milk. It is soyfree and dairyfree. It's really good. Actually I can't digest casein which is in cow's milk but this milk is casein free. All dairy cheese is not allowed in my diet. The only cheese I can igest is Road's End Organics which comes in cheddar and mozzarella cheese. It is a really good tasting product. I usually find more food that is good for me in the Gluten Free aisle in the health food store. I also have to eat pita bread that's free of the soy hydrogenated oil. I just have to read labels and ask questions if I don't I risk getting sick. I've had to send food back many times when I was at different restuarants. Don't buy a whopper at Burger King--it could be soy--they don't call it a hamburger. Usually the buns that accompany the hamburger is filled with soy. I use a safflower based mayonnaise. You just have to get used to making many adjustments so that your son doesn't get sick. Good luck!
