Stealth Soy

It’s bad enough that the world can’t even admit that soybean oil is made of soybeans, but there’s also a bunch of other weasel words that can be used to hide soy.

According to the Soy Allergy page of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), here are other terms that may also imply soy ingredients:

  • Soya
  • Glycine max
  • Hydrolyzed vegetable protein (HVP)
  • Lecithin
  • Miso
  • Mono-diglyceride
  • Monosodium glutamate (MSG)
  • Natto
  • Tempeh
  • Tofu
  • Vegetable oil
  • Vitamin E contains soy bean oil

Glycine max? What’s that about?

We’re already familiar with many of the weasel words for hiding MSG. But, gee, soy is being touted as The Most Healthy Thing On The Planet That You Can Put In Your Mouth, why are they putting in so much effort to hiding it?
