I am allergic to dairy products so i have come to rely on soy products instead, are soy products a problem? I have just found myself very sensitive to msg and would appreciate any advice.

Soybeans are very high in natural glutamic acid. To produce soy products, several methods are used, most of which create free glutamic acid, the form of glutamate most readily absorbed into the blood stream. Most of us here react to products such as tofu, soy milk, hydrolyzed protein, lecithin, soy protein, soybeans oil, etc. Of course, the amount of free glutamate in these products varies. A study done in Hawaii showed that after several years of including soy bean products in the diet of the test volunteers, all of the subjects showed to have diminished brain capacities, compared to control groups...another reason to avoid soy. Have you tried the Rice Dream rice milk? It may not be as tasty as soy milk, but it works well in cooking and baking. I also use it to make hot cocoa.

Do you still have an allergic reaction if you use a product such as Lactase which contains the enzymes required for normal digestion of milk products?
