Soya Allergy – The Facts 

The soya bean belongs to the legume family, which includes fresh and dried peas, beans, carob, liquorice and peanut. Research has shown that a symptomatic reaction to more than one member of the legume family is rare. It is therefore in most cases not necessary to avoid all foods from this plant family. 
Soya is widely used in foods and is difficult to avoid. As many as 60% of manufactured foods contain soya. Soy comes from soybeans and immature soybeans are called edamame beans. Soya can be ingested as whole beans, soya flour, soya sauce or soya oil. 
Soya can also be used in foods as a texturiser (texturised vegetable protein), emulsifier (soya lecithin) or protein filler. Soya flour is widely used in foods including; breads, cakes, processed foods (ready meals, burgers and sausages) and baby foods. 
Avoidance of all these products containing soya would make the diet very restricted. However, as with many other allergies, the level of avoidance required will depend on each individual case. Some people may need to avoid all these forms of soya, whereas others may be able to tolerate, for example, soy sauce and soya lecithin. In fact, most soy sauces contain very small amounts of soy, with most of the protein in the sauce being derived from fermented wheat. 
Soya-derived lecithin is an emulsifier, it is a lipid (fat) which stabilizes foods which contain water and fats, which do not normally mix. This is why you have to shake many salad dressings as they contain oil and water/vinegar which do not mix. For example, lecithin stops the cocoa and cocoa butter in chocolate bars from separating. In addition, lecithin improves the texture of many foods such as chocolate and spreads, and also helps preserves some foods. Since lecithin is fat, soya lecithin contains very little soya protein, and most people with soya allergy can tolerate it.

Advice from our expert solicitors: 

Most supermarkets and many manufacturers produce lists of their food items, which are soya free. However, do be careful as these lists quickly go out of date and food products often change their ingredients. These lists however are a very useful guide to identifying potentially suitable products which can add taste, variety and nutrition to your diet. 

Soya in the UK 

In the UK, the Food Standards Agency advises that refined soya oil (the main component of vegetable oil) should be safe for people with soya allergy, because the proteins that cause allergic reactions are removed during the refining process. However, cold-pressed soya oil, usually sold from delicatessen counters or health food shops, can contain soya protein and should be avoided. 
Under government legislation, soya is classed as a major food allergen, and must therefore be clearly identified on all food ingredient labels of pre-packed foods for sale within the EU. Remember foods sold outside the EU, do not have to comply with these laws. All foods that may not be labelled because they are sold loose including a delicatessen, bakery and butcher products, have to provide a list of product ingredients under the EU food labelling regulations of December 2014. So ask before buying or consuming.
