Taco Bell

Tragically, there’s really nothing here that doesn’t have soy in one form or another.

At least they have the decency to note that soybean oil is used in items that “otherwise don’t contain soy”.


Interestingly enough, they list that their tortilla chips don’t contain soy or soybean oil, but I’ve yet to meet a tortilla chip that wasn’t fried in soybean oil. I may have to check things out next time I’m at Taco Bell.

According to this chart he could also have the Nachos, Cheesy Nachos, Chips and Guacamole, and Pintos n Cheese. Again, color me skeptical on the chips, but the Pinto n Cheese has merit.

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. Just FYI, a while back I ate the Pintos n Cheese, thinking I was safe and I had a reaction to them, so I looked for an ingredient list. Looks like there’s not much of anything I can have at my favorite fast food place any more, which really stinks. http://www.tacobell.com/nutrition/ingredientstatement The pinto beans have soy oil in them (and msg, which unfortunately I also react to). I’m grateful for the full ingredient list, though! I love it when restaurants put those out there for us, because I won’t eat anywhere that doesn’t. 🙂
