I share your pain. Soy, unless fermented, is not good fpr anyone in general, so I've been doing my best to avoid it. I have found So Delicious milk and ice cream which really is delicious and is now becoming available in most supermarkets. I know it's not much, but it's a start. Good luck.
After being sick for years my 13 yr. old was just diagnosed with a soy/barley/malt and tree nut allergy and has non-celiacs gluten sensitivity. It's been frustrating to see how many foods have soy. Even gum! The best finds so far are Rice and Corn Chex, Briannas Ranch Dressing and Litehouse Ranch Dressing and Stagg Chili.(All of their products are free of the top 8 allergens so I respect them even more.) SoyFreeFoods.com has amazing chocolate candy and chocolate chips.I haven't tried any of their baking mixes. Their customer service is beyond amazing. The Free For All Chocolate Chips are really good. I bought them from Amazon but the SoyFreeFoods chips were a better deal and taste even better. Newmans Own Organics Vanilla Alphabet cookies are soy free but not sure about dairy. They are really tasty and my son likes them even better than the chocolate. Your sons still young but don't bother with Glee Gum. It's the only soy free brand we've found but it literally loses its flavor in less than 10 seconds. Natural Jif is good. Not sure of the name but Natural cheetos puffs are good and most potato chips are soy free. Good luck and be sure to post any good finds.

Try enjoy life brands. They are good and my 8yr old loves the crunch candy bars and cookies. I also make him a trail mix with enjoy life chocholate chips, gluteen free /soy free chex cereal, popcorn and pecans (allergic to peanuts) and marshmellow and frosted mini wheat bite size. Immaculate make crissants that are great I wrap ham and cheese in them and bake them and he takes them to camp as sandwiches. Enjoy life has a honey gram cookie andi melt the enjoy life choc chips on top and throw a marshmellow on there and sandwich them when the othdr kids are eating smores. Hope it helps oh he also loves bean tacos. Get soyfree toritillas at the health food store

Best find for my teenage son with soy and dairy allergies:
Nestle makes dark chocolate chips that are soy-free, and
Hellmans now makes a Canola mayonnaise (before this he used hummus on sandwiches).
Wish that Earth balance soy-free margarine was easier to find; be careful, I bought something called "100% Canola" spread that wasn't!
Weis markets make bagels w/o soy (so do a few other places) and sometimes range rolls that are soy-free.
Food Lion carries take-and-bake type italian rolls that are great!
Giant brand peanut butter is soy-free; so is Peter Pan.
Kraft has an olive oil based dressing that used to be soy-free, but you have to always check the label because they change ingredients alot.
Fleischmann's used to make a soy-free bread mix, but lately I can't find it.
Every Friday night I make pizza from scratch, which is easy to do, but like all the rest of our soy-free food prep now it takes time!
Whenever I find soy-free stuff now I stock up, because I'm so afraid they will add soy in before my next shopping trip!
Good luck!

Please look into this Eosinophilic conditions. I was told my whole live IBS and suh until they did biopsies and found high numbers in my digestive tract. http://apfed.org/drupal/drupal/index.php

I've had issues ever since I was little where I went in to these little spells. Some lasted 30 minutes there abouts or a few days. Doctors would say that I had a stomach virus to explain getting sick. Itching spells were blamed on allergens such a grass, sycamore trees, and cows. They done allergy tests but only for contact allergens, I guess you could call them. Lately, when we started eating more vegan meals to be healthy, I have gotten dramatically worse. I've had nausea that gets more severe at times, like my body is rejecting my entire stomach. I've been having itching spells so bad that I feel like a wild monkey with a flea infestation. I go to eat and I only get about 1/3 - 1/2 way done when I start wanting to gag with every bite. I had a celiac panel, negative. Removing gluten did not help. I started looking at soy. Especially when at one point my heart beat was irregular and BP dropped to 98/61. I got very light headed. I found there's soy in my 2 protein shakes a day, vitamins, and nearly everything I've been eating. In trying to cut it out which is turning out to be a challenge, I find I'm slowly feeling a little better. I wander if it's possible for this to have been my problem all these years. I feel so frustrated trying to scrounge up meals soy free. I am having an allergy test done tomorrow evening too but it seems like forever when you feel this bad.

I know this is an old post but I understand how your daughter feels. I was told IBS for over 25 years. Guess what not IBS, please check out this site.

Hi Arlen,
My daughter's allergy test don't show an allergy to soy or dairy, but she would argue otherwise. She is VERY sensitive to those ingredients. She is allergic to sugar, white rice and several other things including a preservative found in most baked goods.
She, too, cooks all her own foods at home and is afraid of eating out. It is a rough life for an 18 year old but she is a tough girl. IBS was the diagnosis but who knows. I only know that she rarely is able to attend school, is afraid to leave the house for any length of time and feels pretty cruddy most of the time.

My soy-free blog is now combined with all my allergy friendly blogs from my Your Not-So-Professional Personal Chef blog series under a new name. It is now called Natural and Free ( http://NaturalAndFree.blogspot.com/ ). It contains recipes that are soy, fish (shellfish, fish, seafood), wheat, nut (peanut and tree nut), egg and/or milk-free. It also contains a list of alternative names for gluten and some helpful links on gluten/gluten-free living, and a list of alternative names for soy and soy-free foods. Hope this is of help to some of you!:)

Are there any soy free blogs? I see so much support for gluten free, but I have found very little information on soy free. I guess I am more sensitive than some, even tocopheryl acetate is giving me a reaction.
I see some lists on what we can not have, but I am curious on what we are allowed to have. I am having a hard time adjusting. Every time I turn around I have used another product with soy. I think I am getting the food part down, and then I realized it was in my facial scrub, lotion and body wash. I have no idea if it is in my makeup because the ingredient list is not on the product but on the package and I don't have it anymore. It was even in my dish detergent.
Is there soy makeup?
I am feeling overwhelmed and depressed. I enjoyed dinning out, and now I am too scared to. Since I found out, it seems all I do, is go to work, come home and spend the night in the kitchen. blah. rant over.
I am 31 and created a website/blog for those with soy, peanut or tree-nut allergies which I have all three. You and many others on these pages may find useful info and support:

Cheerio's, Kraft Mac/Cheese, Petridge Farm Bagels, Spectrum Mayonaise, some Spectrum Dressing, Canola Oil, Olive Oil, some Humpty Dumpty chips because they fr in Canola oil, Freetos, Motts Apple Sauce, Some angel hair pasta and other pastas are soy free, Philly Cream Cheese, Hershey Cocoa, Heart Healthy Bisquick, 100% cheeses, Popcorm cooked in Canola Oil, some mini bagels. Good LUCK!!
No, as someone with a soy intolerance, I get sick from Kraft Mac N Cheese, and Hershey's Cocoa. The cocoa is processed on machines that also process soy. Anything with "natural flavor," including apple sauce, usually has soy.

I found Rudi's Bakery items contain no soy, but some have sesame seeds. Check in the freezer section in the organic area of your grocery store.

I just found out I'm allergic to soy and it has been rough finding anything not containing soy. I haven't found replacements for the breads, cookies, cakes, etc yet but will share once I do.

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 .
I am allergic to soy also. I have found that Enjoy Life products are soy-free. Also, a lot of Simple Truth products are soy-free. Read the label to be sure. If you do some baking, King Arthur flour, spectrum shortening, coconut oil and almond oil are good. Hope this helps. I really feel for your son. Buying is a real challenge but there are things out there. Fred Meyers is getting pretty good about carrying soy free products. Simple Truth has peanut butter that is soy free. I have been having a lot more success but have had to do a lot of searching.

I am allergic to soy also. Have found Dave's Killer Bread to be soy free and it is delicious. Also, Pamela's cookies are soy free, and very good. I found them in the health food section at Fred Meyers.
