Topic: Good can dog food without soy products - Dog Food Advisor
When analysing the presence of allergen traces in foods with or without precautionary statements, the presence of detectable allergen does not always correlate with the package labels. (Pele et al. ; Crotty & Taylor ; Ford et al. ; Spanjersberg et al. ; Robertson et al. ; Zurzolo et al. ; Remington, Baumert, et al. 2013a). Soy allergen in processed foods has not been surveyed on a large scale even though it was the third most recalled allergen from 2007 to 2012, responsible for 153 recalls of USFDA-regulated foods (Gendel & Zhu ). Therefore, food products without soy disclosed on the ingredient list and with no precautionary statement were of particular interest in this study.
Ever since we had a friend with a wheat allergy come over for dinner, I’ve been thinking about how to prepare Asian foods without soy sauce or finding a nut-safe, wheat and gluten free soy sauce alternative. One of the first questions that popped up shortly after I published my first few recipes revolved around soy sauce: How to make Soy Free Soy Sauce? This is a huge topic and I believe the humble soy sauce deserves its own post!
My dog has had food allergies since I got him as a puppy, but they have gotten worse as he has gotten older. Hes a 2 yr old Lab, who gets frequent ear infections. I started taking him to a dermatologist and are doing food trials. So far I know that Need dog food with No Soy, Potatoes, Rice, Oats, Peas/Lentils, Squash.
Also, i've tried giving him perscription diets with hydrolized protein. Didn't work. I also tried Hill's ZD and he won't go near it. Even tried starving him to get him to eat it.
I've beens searching the internet like crazy. I found possible raw diets, but I can't afford them. Any suggestions?Sarah, I just moved to Spokane, WA and am trying to find foods without soy. Soy is horrible for premenopausal women since it is a competitive inhibitor with estrogen (ie it competes for the same receptor sights in all of the places all over the body that estrogen uses–thus blocking estrogens ability to start the proper cascade of events making a woman’s body function properly). So, I am trying to find food choices and stores without soy in the products. Have any more suggestions?? Thanks!!Snacks
• Yogurts: Soy-, coconut-, and nut-based yogurts all can be found in major grocery stores and health food stores, with soy-based versions being the most readily available. A convenience sample of 558 packaged bakery and snack foods with or without precautionary labelling regarding soy were purchased from seven local grocery stores in Maryland. The samples selected were food products with no soy disclosed as an intended ingredient on the label. Bakery products included products that were fresh, refrigerated or frozen. Many food products were ready to eat or needed some further preparation, such as baking. Snack products were mostly prepackaged and shelf stable. About 27% ( = 151) of total products had precautionary labelling indicating the possible presence of soy allergen traces. Precautionary labelling was found on 73 out of 284 (26%) bakery products and in 78 out of 274 (28%) snack products. Several different precautionary statements were identified on the labels: may contain, may be present, processed in a facility that also processes, made on equipment with, etc. The food categories of bakery and snacks were chosen following the classification and definitions used in the USFDA () Reportable Food Registry (RFR) report (see ). Purchased bakery products were divided into five major categories and snacks into seven. The food categories and number of products tested in each category are indicated in . Bread constituted a greater proportion of the bakery samples because it was more widely available and chips and crackers comprised the major fractions of the purchased snack products. All products were analysed for the presence of undeclared soy protein using two commercial ELISA assay kits. The results were then compared with the information on the food label related to a soy precautionary statement.
