more labelling questions a little long
I am currently going through our kitchen to find out if there's anything DS can't have. The doctor specifically told us that it is only peanuts he's allergic to, however I'm not willing to take any chances so I want to take away anything with nuts. My question is about soy. He's not allergic to soy, has a little soy milk every so often but I think I read that it's related to peanuts. At least that's what I read in my many pages of research I'm overwhelming myself with. Here are some ingredients I'm not sure of:
partially hydrogenated vegetable oil (soybean and/or cotton seed) then it says contains soy sesame and sunflower ingredients
hydrolyzed soy protein.
any kind of soybean.
Also what else am I looking for? So far I'm looking for peanut or peanut oil, hydrolyzed vegetable protein (which I think is misleading to some people who may not know that, I know I sure didn't know what it was till now) and any other kinds of nuts. Are there more things I should be looking for?
Editing for more questions. Ok so as I've read here before they don't have to label any may contains so we are supposed to call every company of every single food we want to buy (I mean I will if htat's what it takes but that's insane) also restaurants aren't regulated at all? Do a lot of restaurants use peanut oil or use peanuts (Can't think of that many items with nuts except desserts)
