No, soy is a legume. Soy in any form is on the avoid list for people with G6PDD. The majority of processed foods has some sort of soy in them. It’s cheap and it enhances the texture and stability of the foods that are designed to sit on the shelf for long periods of time. There is also strong evidence that most of the soy in processed foods is grown using GMO seeds as well as pesticides, as it saves the manufacturer money and makes the product more affordable for the consumer. Avoiding soy is just another reason to make your own meals from scratch. You will save money and feel much healthier, even if you are not g6pd deficient.
