There is extensive literature on the development and management of food allergy, but some basic questions such as why some proteins are allergenic while closely related proteins from other species are not allergenic, remain to be answered. This paper is not a detailed review of food allergies, but rather an overview of current knowledge regarding soy food allergies, with a focus on the pig as a model for the study of soy allergies and with additional information on how soy allergies and use of soybean-sourced feed can affect production animal agriculture.
