Should we avoid soy lecithin? What about food that "may contain traces of soy"?
Lecithin is safe.: Now for the "traces of soy" question: it all depends on the reaction that triggered the soy allergy discovery. If she had a severe reaction when she ate something which contained soy, then you have to be careful with those products. Be extra careful. They are warning you.

For 8-10 years, I supplemented with a high dosage of soy lecithin for its cholesterol-lowering and anti-atherogenic benefits. Recently this is not popular. Is it likely I did any damage? No symptoms.

Absolutely: Alimentum and nutramigen are the first two that are readily available that come to mind. They are a bit more expensive, but very easy to digest and no soy anything.

I got a rash from nose-chin after halloween. I had 3 antibiotics, nothing happened. Could it be an allergy to chocolate/gluten/milk/lecithin....?
