Melissa asked us to tell her “every fast food or chain restaurant and baked goods that are soy free”.
Well, Melissa, I wish I knew! 🙂 Seriously, trying to answer that exact question is what led to the creation of this website. Unfortunately pretty much every national restaurant has soy in a large percentage of their offerings. The most notable exception would be Chipotle, and Donato’s gluten (and conveniently soy) free pizza.
Rumor has it that Panera Bread is starting to carry some baked goods that are soy free, but I have not had the opportunity to check them out personally. Unfortunately, between the shortening or the frosting, pretty much every baked good made in America is going to have soy in it. If you’re looking for not-made-by-yourself baked goods, your best bet is going to be a local artesian bakery that realizes that soybean oil is not a requirement when baking.
