Serving Customers with Soy Allergies

Soy is one of the main staples in the United States food chain. Though we do not eat soy beans the way we eat corn, soy products and extracts are used in a number of our foods and recipes. Since soy is very widespread, it is important to read all food labels and recipes when serving customers with a soy allergy. A single protein is enough to cause an allergic reaction.
