Soy

Although the incidence of allergy to Soybean proteins is quite low in comparison with other major food proteins, the gradually increasing consumption of Soybean products makes the identification and characterization of major Soy allergens a focus of investigation (Helm et al 2000). The major allergens of soybean have not been as well characterized as peanut allergens. However, two Soy proteins have been identified as antigenic.(Eigenmann et al. 1996)
