soy allergy suggestions-please!

Hi all!

I am new to the Diet & Nutrition boards! I just found out I am allergic to soy. I cannot believe all the stuff that has soy in it!!! Here I thought I was to just cut out my soy milk and tofu, but now my veggie burgers are gone, tuna, mayo....and etc.

Any suggestions on soy-free products? Thanks.

A couple come to mind: tuna in WATER, any mayo made with corn or canola (should be a couple out there.) FGat-free salad dressings, or make your own with canola or olive oil.

Unfortunately, you must steer clear of anythig called "vegetable oil"...that's a euphemism for soy.
No "hydrolyzed vegetable protein" either.

You'll be reading LOTS of labels for the next couple weeks...oh, stay out of Chinese and Thai restaurants.

Thanks zip---

Yeah even the tuna in water has soy in it, I guess you have to get spring water or something.

Lots of label checking for me. Thanks for the suggestions.

Re: soy allergy suggestions-please!

If I were you, I would FIRST cut out the soy milk and tofu, the "main" soy foods, then see what happens. You may not be allergic to products that have minute amounts in it, like for instance, something that contains "hydorolized soy protein." Like, some lactose intolorant people can still digest products that have small amounts of milk in it. I know, there IS alot of products that contain soy, and if you were allergic to the one's with small amounts, that would blow! I wish you luck.
