    Welcome to the board. Packaged foods will consistently list these ingredients but there can be many things to look for on a label. THis is a great resource from the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network that lists common ingredient names:

    FAAN is just a good site to look through all around for food allergy info. GL to your friend, and let her know there are a few of us who have done such elimination diets and she's welcome to come for support or advice.

    LOL welcome and thanks for "coming out"...I did an elimination diet for soy, milk, wheat and egg when I bf'd my DS. It was tough for sure. I ate a lot of produce! I would double-check with your doc about what oils you can eat, sometimes people are able to eat soybean oil and soy lecithin even if they are avoiding soy. That will open up a lot of food for you if you can include those things. Milk hides in a lot of food so read those labels carefully and don't assume anything. GL and I hope you get some answers.
