Our expert says:
Soya Lecithin is a type of fat called a phospholipid that is extracted from soya beans and added to many foods as an emulsifier. Generally speaking even patients with soya allergy do not always react to fats extracted from soya because they are allergic to one or more soya proteins and these proteins are removed when the fat is extracted. If you are, however, finding that your son is developing negative symptoms on this product, then you may have to change to a product that is lactose-free and does not contain lecithin. Contact the Allergy Association by visiting their Website at: www.allallergy.net to find out more about products that are both lactose and lecithin-free.
Hope you lad recovers soon
