Applebee’s fries in soybean oil. That eliminates wings, shrimp, fries, fish, chicken tenders, and tortilla chips. The pasta is “cooled” in soybean oil. Manager mentioned that proteins in soybean oil that cause reaction are burned off at 300-350 degrees. I think I remember that he said they run their fryer and grill at 400-450°.
Website & restaurant allergen info assume that soybean oil is non-allergenic.
What we order:
steaks, they have a 4 ounce kids steak – he ate better than we did!
garlic mashed potatoes (in theory) manager made them for us potatoes, butter, milk
plain broccoli (steamed) with real butter

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.
