Question

egg allergy

Good morning. I have a child that is allergic to eggs and bee stings. I read the labels, but am puzzled by emulsifiers. Some packaging states emulsiefier (soyo), other just say emulsifier or the e code in brackets. Most say soyo E322, but i believe that e322 can contain egg traces. How can i be sure if the emulsifier contains egg or not. Star bread for example just states emulsifier. I phoned them, but they could not for definate say what it contained, as they receive it pre packaged. please help me. thanks

Hi Vanessa
I would just avoid products that don't specify what they used as emulcifier, to be safe.
