Soy Sauce

Soya beans contain many substances which are harmful to our health. Previously some fermented soya products were allowed with provisos such as “may be tried after 3 months symptom free” However this was often interpreted as them being legal and were being consumed in quantities far more than desirable. Soya beans start off with many undesirable substances and to separate and produce other products a large amount of chemical processing is required. Even after fermentation its doubtful that all of these substances will be removed entirely, also as in any manufacturing process we are reliant on what the manufacturer tells us. There is increasing evidence of the detrimental effects of Soy therefore Elaine has decided that all Soya products fermented or not are illegal.
