Background  Soy sauce is well‐known as a Japanese traditional seasoning, namely shoyu. Usually, shoyu means sauce made from soy. Shoyu does have not only benefits but also adverse effects. Soy sauce allergy which is not caused by soy or wheat allergy is rare. 

Criteria for prick test using soy sauce

TLDR
Four cases of soy sauce allergy are reported and new criteria are necessary for the prick test and it is important to discuss how to interpret the results of prick tests.

Soybean and Allergy

TLDR
This study showed that some cases of occupational disease were caused by foods; these included a patient working in a bakery with a flour allergy, a green grocer with a vegetable and fruit allergies, a noodle shop worker with an egg allergy, and a cook with a fruit allergy.

Contact Urticaria Syndrome from Tofu

TLDR
This case should be classified into stage 3 of contact urticaria syndrome (CUS), and since CUS can be fatal, the authors must be careful in management for such patients.

Production of Bacillus subtilis-fermented red alga Porphyra dentata suspension with fibrinolytic and immune-enhancing activities

TLDR
The fermented marine alga Porphyra dentata suspension showed its immune-enhancing activity by increasing cell proliferation and stimulating the secretion of IL-1β, IL-6, and TNF-α in J774.1 cells.

Addition of Coriander during Fermentation of Korean Soy Sauce (Gangjang) Causes Significant Shift in Microbial Composition and Reduction in Biogenic Amine Levels

TLDR
The results of this study suggest that the addition of coriander during Korean soy sauce fermentation is beneficial, as corianders significantly reduces the levels of biogenic amines and the bacteria that produce them.

TLDR
Fermented soy sauce contains three tartaric isoflavone derivatives called shoyuflavones, which were shown to have inhibitory activities against histidine decarboxylase, which produces histamine, a mediator of inflammation, allergy and gastric acid secretion.

TLDR
In conclusion, soy sauce would be a potentially promising seasoning for the treatment of allergic diseases through food because of its hypoallergenicity and antiallergic activity.

In vitro and in vivo anti-allergic activity of soy sauce.

TLDR
Results suggest that SPS may have anti-allergic activities, and soy sauce is a potentially promising seasoning for the treatment of allergic diseases through food.

Hypolipidemic effect of Shoyu polysaccharides from soy sauce in animals and humans.

TLDR
SPS of soy sauce reduce lipid absorption, and soy sauce is a potentially promising seasoning for the treatment of hyperlipidemia through food.

Degradation of wheat allergen in Japanese soy sauce.

TLDR
It was clearly demonstrated that wheat allergens were degraded into amino acids and peptides losing the IgE-binding ability in both salt-soluble and salt-insoluble fractions of soy sauce during fermentation, and it was concluded that no wheat allergen is contained in soy sauce.

Promotive effect of Shoyu polysaccharides from soy sauce on iron absorption in animals and humans.

TLDR
SPS of soy sauce enhanced iron absorption, and soy sauce is a potentially promising seasoning for the treatment of anemia through food.

Inhibition of benzo(a)pyrene-induced mouse forestomach neoplasia by dietary soy sauce.

TLDR
It is shown that Japanese-style fermented soy sauce (shoyu) contains anticarcinogenic activity, and mouse forestomach ornithine decarboxylase activity was induced by soy sauce, contrary to expectations.

Measurement of Gly m Bd 30K, a major soybean allergen, in soybean products by a sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.

TLDR
The allergen, Gly m Bd 30K, was clearly shown to occur in meat balls, beef croquettes, and fried chicken that contained soybean protein isolate, and its content in kinako was small.

TLDR
The role of histamine in food and wine intolerance is indicated and that histamine‐rich food causes a worsening of symptoms in patients suffering from chronic headaches and the hypothesis of a deficiency of diamine oxidase in patients with intolerance to food or wine is supported.
