Boston Market

It looks like some of the standard items are soy free at Boston Market: Rotisserie Chicken, Roasted Turkey Breast, Fresh Steamed Vegetables, Rice Pilaf, Mac and Cheese and Creamed Spinach (somewhat surprisingly).

I’m somewhat concerned that Boston Market takes the “Soybean Oil isn’t Soy” route, as they claim that their Broccoli with Garlic Butter Sauce is soy-free, as I would have to imagine that there’s margarine (aka hydrogenated soybean oil) in there somewhere, but maybe I’m in for a pleasant surprise.

Back in February, Susan (see comment below) ran into problems with soy at a Boston Market. Susan’s list is much more limited than what I’m finding from Boston Market’s allergen list, which makes me think that Boston Market is indeed ignoring soybean oil in cooking oil, margarine, or non-stick spray.

We don’t live near a Boston Market, so we’ll have to stop in and grill a manager next time we’re near one.

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.

  1. I heard my daughter with the characteristic throat clearing after eating a Boston Market cornbread, so was led to look it up. Pretty much all a soy-allergic person can eat is the CREAMED (not garlic) spinach, and ceaser salad WITHOUT DRESSING., so, not much there.
    I also found your website. Thank you.
