Thanks to Angela for reminding me of the wonderful news: Chipotle is finally (mostly) Soy Free! We were in a Chipotle a couple of weeks ago and were pleasantly surprised to find out Chipotle now uses canola oil in their tortillas. That makes everything we care about 100% soy free at Chipotle. They do ?now? ?still? offer a tofu concoction as an alternative to meat, but if it’s been there for a while, I’ve just ignored it.
So the tofu concoction is the only thing with soy in it in the entire restaurant. Our son was so ecstatic to finally be able to eat a Chipotle burrito again. It was one of his favorite restaurants before we found out about his soy allergy, and now he gets to go back!
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.
