There are more than just a few people these days who avoid eating soy-based foods for various reasons.
If you’re throwing a large dinner party or having people over for a casual weekend brunch and one of your guests doesn’t eat soy, here’s what to look out for when you’re cooking up a storm.
The easiest option is to avoid all products with soy, soya, or soybean written on the label. But then you should also keep an eye out for:
- bean curd, soybean sprouts, edamame, miso, tamari, tempeh, tofu and hydrolised soy protein.
Some products which may also contain soy include:
Dairy-free yoghurt, ice cream, pasta, some margarines
Vegan cheese, ice cream, burger patties and sausages
Textured vegetable protein (TVP), hydrolyzed plant protein (HPP) or hydrolyzed vegetable protein (HVP)
Natural flavourings, stabilisers and thickeners
Vegetable gum, starch, shortening, or oil
Vitamin E tablets
Vegetable stock cubes, gravies, and tinned or packet soups
