It can occur at any age, but how can you detect it? Let’s discover its symptoms and which soy-free foods can be eaten to follow a good and healthy lifestyle with taste.

Foods containing soy to avoid

The simplest solution to avoid soy allergy is to avoid consuming it. It is therefore essential to carefully read the labels of the products and verify whether there are some traces among the ingredients. The presence of soy is indicated, in compliance with the law, only when it is more than the allowed quantity. In that case it is written “may contain soy”.

The foods containing soy are:

  • Soy drinks, soy yogurt, soy creams, soy panna or other products derived from that;
  • Soy and green beans sprouts;
  • Soy flakes;
  • Soy flour;
  • Soy pasta;
