What causes soy intolerance?

In recent years, the soybean has increasingly developed into a foodstuff that is used in a wide variety of foods. Whether as flour, lecithin or cooking oil, soy has become an integral part of modern cuisine and it is no longer so easy to get past soy. This quickly triggers allergies that are not easily recognized as such. 

The consequences are all the more recognizable: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and flare-ups of neurodermatitis can be signs of a soy allergy. In addition to gastrointestinal problems, adults can also have respiratory problems (asthma). The severity of the intolerance ranges from mild sensitivities to anaphylactic shock - a soy allergy should not be underestimated! The alternative to soy lecithin is sunflower lecithin.

In general, it can be said that only a change in diet helps against soy intolerance. You have to be very careful not to buy any food with traces of soy. Unfortunately, the soy origin is not always sufficiently indicated on the labels.
