Excessive intake, especially of processed soy products, e.g. Texturized soy protein, as opposed to natural sources like edamames, tofu, tempeh, could conceivably be a problem; mostly not. Soy oil doesn't have those chemicls. ...Read more
I'm allergic to peanut & soy products and I need to know what can I eat, I've even Google d it and I can't find anything please help?

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 more

I'm allergic to peanut & soy products and I need to know what can I eat ive Google but I cant find it?
Ive?: Have never heard of ive. However avoidance is of primary importance and don't let anyone tell you that any genetically modified peanuts or soy is non-allergenic until scientifically proven. Although there is cross-sensitivity in term of skin test reaction between soy and peanut, rarely would a peanut-allergic person react to soy. Make sure that these are not just skin or blood test findings. ...Read more
