Soy oil doesn't have those chemicls. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

This is why a board certified allergist is needed to sort out these issues with you. Sometimes an in-office food challenge is required - I would not just 'try and see' on your own. It is the job of the allergist to give you adequate info. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
