About Soy Allergies:
For some people, soy and soy products are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions. Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to soy or soy-based products within a very short time, possibly leading to severe injury and/or death.

Many foods have soy-based ingredients including edamame (soybeans in pods), hydrolyzed soy protein, miso, soy protein isolate, soy sauce, tamari, tempeh, teriyaki sauce, textured vegetable protein (“TVP”) and tofu. In addition, lax labeling laws in some cases allow manufacturers to use (but not declare) small amounts of soy in ingredients such as “artificial flavoring”, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, vegetable broth and others. Although levels of these allergens are comparatively small, they may cause dangerous allergic reactions, including Anaphylactic Shock, in some individuals.

If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call 9-1-1 or other local emergency number for immediate transport to a medical center. If trained and an emergency kit is available, it may be appropriate to give an injectable drug such as Epinephrine (also known as adrenaline or adrenalin) to the affected individual. Trade names of these products include EpiPen, Twinject, Adrenaclick, Anapen, Jext, Allerject and Auvi-Q. Please note: even patients who are apparently stabilized should still go to hospital for emergency evaluation. Further treatment is often necessary.
