Arby’s Updates

Arby’s doesn’t seem to carry the Kraft Macaroni and Cheese any more.

Found a newer ingredient list from December 2014:

Interestingly enough, somewhere along the line, Arby’s started frying in corn oil. The potato cakes and onion rings are the only soy free items that they fry in the corn oil. These all contain some form of soy: crispy chicken, curly fries, fish filet, french toast sticks, Jalapeño Bites,  Jalapeño hushpuppies, and Mozzarella sticks.

Most of Arby’s sauces contain soy (most likely soybean oil). The only soy-free sauces are: Bronco Berry Sauce®,Cheddar Cheese Sauce, Ketchup, and Tangy Barbeque Sauce (not to be confused with Arby’s Sauce®)

Most cheeses seem to be okay, except for the pepperjack cheese and Swiss Cheese (Processed Slice) not to be confused with Swiss Cheese (Natural Slice), which is fine.

All of Arby’s bread contains soy but they do (?now?) have a Hearty Grain Wrap that is soy free.

I’ve gone through the entire ingredient list and these items have no Soy in them:

Breakfast Bacon
Bronco Berry Sauce®
CapriSun® Fruit Juice
Cheddar Cheese Sauce
Cheddar Cheese (Sharp Slice)
Cheddar Cheese (Shredded)
Chocolate Shake
Corned Beef
GoGo squeeZ Applesauce
Hearty Grain Wrap
Jamocha Shake
Ketchup
Nestle® Pure Life® Bottled Water
Orange Juice
Pepper Bacon
Peppers & Onions
Potato Cakes – Cooked in Corn Oil (same oil as items that contain Soy).
Roast Beef
Roast Ham
Roast Turkey
Sauerkraut
Sausage Patty
Seasoning Blend
Shamrock Farms® Lowfat Chocolate Milk
Shamrock Farms® Lowfat White Milk
Smoked Brisket
Smoked Gouda Cheese
Steakhouse Onion Rings – Cooked in Corn Oil (same oil as items that contain Soy) — not to be confused with Crispy Onions which has soybean oil.
Swiss Cheese (Natural Slice) — not to be confused with Swiss Cheese (Processed Slice) which has soy lecithin.
Tangy Barbeque Sauce — not to be confused with Arby’s Sauce® which has soybean oil.
Vanilla Shake
Vermont White Cheddar (Sharp Slice)

That’s every individual ingredient on Arby’s list that doesn’t contain soy. I didn’t bother listing the carbonated beverages. As usual all of them are soy free, except for the Mountain Dew that has Brominated Vegetable Oil, which we assume to be soybean oil.

We certainly have some mix and match potential and the kids will be ecstatic to be able to have the potato cakes and onion rings — I don’t think they’ve ever had either of those ever before.

With the hearty grain wrap, we could conceivably not have to bring our own bread to Arby’s, but I think we’ll still carry some, just in case.




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.
