You're so right about not advertising for Soy-Free like they do for Gluten Free, etc.

On a different note, what do you think of Rice Milk and Brown Rice syrup? I've heard the syrup for some reason is good for runners (my guess is the energy)?

Thanks for the advice. I do try to eliminate most processed stuff, but occasionally, I don't have time to do that. I will look into stuff at Whole foods. I guess my biggest complaint (and yes it is a complaint) is that there isn't a "soy-free" area of the store, or that food items aren't labeled "soy-free" but they are labeled if they are gluten or lactose free...

Oh Molly!
That is so aggravating! Possibly make your own bars? Zone bars, Clif Bars, i think they all have soy in them. Can you eat/drink whey protein (i know it's a lactose derivative)? I know the "Think" Bars are lactose and soy free, I have no idea how they taste.

Lara BARS!!! Yes, i knew i would think of something. Try Lara Bars. My fav is the chocolate. " Clif Nectar" bars may work too They are essentially nuts and fruit. Maybe a stop at whole foods or trader joes and read through some ingredients.

The company 'You Bar' allows you to customize bars. It's pricey though.

Here are some links:

If it were me, then I would avoid processed food entirely. I know that is hard but it would eliminate painful episodes.

Does anyone else have one? I recently found out that I have an allergy to soy. It affects me the way lactose intolerance affects others, so it is rather unpleasant at times - there is lots of stomach cramping and stuff. I am finding out that many processed "healthy" foods contain some form of soy (i.e. Fiber one bars, and other nutrition bars) Does anyone know of any healthy choices in processed foods that do not contain any soy. Lots of times when things are advertised as all natural, they contain soy. I'm just looking for stuff that doesn't. Switching my vegetable oil to canola or olive was a big help, and not eating fried foods when out is another, but it's still annoying when I go to peoples houses, because I don't know how they cook. I cannot eat anything at my SIL/BIL's house because they are Chinese, and use soy sauce like we use salt. Any suggestions?
