Finding allergy-friendly snacks can be a hassle. That's why we compiled a list of 23 soy-free snack ideas to help you on your next shopping trip.
Soy is used in a wide range of foods, and even some you wouldn't expect, like bread and soup broth, to name a couple. If you or a child has a soy allergy, read the food label for ingredients like:
- Hydrolyzed soy protein
- Soy sauce
- Soy flour
- Soy protein isolate
- Soy sprouts
- Textured vegetable protein
That isn't a comprehensive list of all soy-based ingredients, but it covers many common ones. If you've been living with a food allergy for a while, you probably know the importance of double-checking ingredients.
Companies sometimes change the ingredients in a product or may start processing the product alongside soy-containing products. The products gathered in this list are free of soy products, but we always recommend checking and rechecking labels for changes.
