We are never failed to be amazed at where soy can show up. Herbal Tea would certainly be the last place that you’d ever expect to find soy. The really weirdest part is that soy is not listed in the ingredients for the Stash Tea wild blackcurrant herbal tea, but after the ingredients it says “Contains soy”. How? Where? For what? But it’s there. Which, like the stunning surprise that Country Time “lemonade” drink mix has soy but no lemons, shows you that you have to read EVERY label, because you just can’t keep up with the food industry’s creative use of soy.
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.
