I'm trying to track allergen information for every restaurant that we eat at. With my son's soy allergy, each time we eat at a restaurant, it can take up to 30 minutes to figure out what he can eat. Especially since most restaurants don't accurately represent their usage of soy.

We're tracking what soy free (including soybean oil free) foods our son can eat at all restaurants we go to. If you've got a soy allergy in your family and have any information you can share, please contact us.

Wendy’s Frostys are soy free. Both the chocolate and the vanilla are ok.

Online Materials Used:
Allergen List: http://www.wendys.com/food/pdf/us/allergen_list.pdf
Ingredient List: http://www.wendys.com/food/Nutrition.jsp

Restaurant Visit:
Wendy’s fries in a vegetable blend oil that contains soy. I was told, before their “Natural cut with salt french fries” they fried in 100% soybean oil.

Notes:
Wendy’s represents what is tragically the classic restaurant response to soybean oil. They note items that contain soy, but do not include items containing or fried in soybean oil.

Two examples:
Allergen list says no soy in Hamburger Jr. but according to ingredient list, Sandwich Bun includes: Vegetable Oil (contains one or more of the following: soybean, cottonseed, canola)

Allergen list says no soy in Classic Single Burger but according to ingredient list, Sandwich Bun includes: Soy and/or Canola Oil

What we order:
The kids meal with the cheeseburger, oranges, and chocolate milk. Wendy’s American Cheese has soy, while their Swiss Cheese does not. For restaurants that have Swiss Cheese, we would get a cheeseburger with Swiss. For restaurants that did not have Swiss Cheese, we get a hamburger. We’ve only recently discovered that there is soybean oil in their buns (contrary to their allergen information), so we now bring our Nickles One Buns.
