Miss Green asked: “Where I can find soy free bread and pizza in my area?”
Unfortunately, we can’t be a lot of help when it comes to bread, as it seems that pretty much 100% of all commercially available bread and buns have soybean oil in them. We pretty much have to depend on my wife baking bread or visiting a local artesian bakery to get bread or buns that the kids can eat. Update 6/22/2015 — Aldi’s actually carries 8 different types of bread that are soy free
Pizza is almost as hopeless, but there is one nationwide option: Donato’s Pizza
has a gluten free pizza that uses Udi’s gluten free crust which is conveniently also soy free. So if there’s a Donato’s Pizza in your neck of the woods, head on over there right away. Aside from Donato’s, every national chain we’ve researched uses soybean oil in their crust and often in their sauce.
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.
