Certain factors may put you at greater risk of developing a soy allergy:

  • Family history. You're at increased risk of allergy to soy or other foods if other allergies, such as hay fever, asthma, hives or eczema, are common in your family.
  • Age. Soy allergy is most common in children, especially toddlers and infants.
  • Other allergies. In some cases, people who are allergic to wheat, beans (legumes), milk or other foods can have an allergic reaction to soy.
