SOY FREE DIET

The soy free diet is a modification of the normal diet with the elimination of soybeans, and all foods containing by-products of soybeans. Soybeans are a legume and are a staple in some Asian cuisines. The following ingredients should be avoided.

Ingredients to avoid:
• Hydrolyzed soy protein
• Miso
• Shoyo sauce
• Soy flour
• Soy grits
• Soy nuts
• Soy milk
• Soy sprouts
• Soy protein concentrate
• Soy protein isolate
• Soy sauce
• Tempeh
• Textured vegetable protein (TVP)
• Tofu

The following ingredients MAY indicate the presence of soy protein:
• Flavoring
• Hydrolyzed vegetable protein
• Hydrolyzed plant protein
• Natural flavoring
• Vegetable broth
• Vegetable gum
• Vegetable starch

Noteworthy
• Food companies continually change product recipes so ALWAYS read labels. ALWAYS ask about ingredients in restaurants, bakeries, etc. ALWAYS call the manufacturer if you have a question (they will be most accommodating if you tell them you have a soy allergy). WHEN IN DOUBT: DO NOT EAT IT!
