I just found your website and the great (and somewhat alarming) information about soy allergy. Last month I had a very serious reaction to soy binder in the 100% cold water fish oil capsules I was prescribed by my physician. Last week, my rheumatologist recommended that I add gluten to the rapidly expanding list of forbidden products. I jokingly told my rheumatologist that all that was left to eat was the cardboard boxes that food comes in. Now I find out even the boxes contain soy and are now added to the forbidden list. Seriously, soy allergy is the pits. Thanks for the info. And I am now checking with the manufacturers of my other medication to see if it is soy free.
Soy Allergy - Food Allergy Research & Education
Soybeans have been important food for at least 5,000 years. Western science confirmed soy as very healthy food. In 1999 the FDA recognized the role of soy in reducing cholesterol saying, "25 grams of soy protein a day, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease." Whole organic soy foods, such as E, best provide the desired benefits. Whole food sources of phyotonutrients are always better than isolates and chemical imitations. The FDA further says, "Diets low in sodium may reduce the risk of high blood pressure, a disease associated with many factors." Unsweetened E is very low sodium with no salt added, rich in protein, and is a good source of potassium, iron, folate B9, magnesium, and copper. It provides 75 mg of naturally occurring soy isoflavones and is gluten free. E is made with all natural whole food ingredients, providing the highest quality soy protein and a whole spectrum of balanced nutrients.

I come into contact with small amounts of soy and my lips swell. So far, my reactions are mild discomfort and severe ugliness. So, I am grateful it takes a lot of soy to make me stop breathing. Nonetheless, I am furious that the FDA in the US and other similar government entities in other developed countries are asleep at the wheel. There is enough evidence to warrant further study into what’s causing all of these widespread allergy issues. Peanuts, wheat, soy, etc. The most significant clue to this sudden problem is genetic modification of crops. Food is life. It shouldn’t mame and kill for the sake of profits.
Milk, cheese, cottage cheese, or yogurt without soy products.
