Soy allergy is one of the most common food allergies in infants and children. This food allergy is often outgrown by the age of 3 years. Symptoms of a soy allergy may be mild or severe, and can include:

  • Hives, itching or eczema
  • Tingling sensation in the mouth
  • Swelling of lips, face, tongue, throat or other parts of the body
  • Wheezing, runny nose or trouble breathing
  • Abdominal pain, diarrhoea, nausea or vomiting
  • Dizziness, light-headedness or fainting

Some people may have a serious reaction to soy called anaphylaxis, which is potentially life-threatening, if it is not treated. This may make the batch unsafe for consumers, latter who are allergic to or intolerant of soya.
