About Soy and Wheat Allergies:
For some people, foods made from soy and wheat ingredients pose serious and potentially life-threatening conditions. Worse still, it may not necessarily sound as if they are derived from either of these food products. Many foods, for example, 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 many countries allow manufacturers to use (but not declare) small amounts of soy in “artificial flavoring”, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, vegetable broth and others.

Likewise, wheat (and wheat products) can also be a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions. Due to modern food manufacturing methods, wheat products may not “look” or “sound” like wheat. People with a wheat allergy should suspect products including breads, cakes, breakfast cereals, pasta, crackers, beer, soy sauce and even condiments, such as ketchup, as having wheat unless specifically declared otherwise.

Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to soy or wheat ingredients within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death. 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.
