Abstract

Soybeans were treated with proteases to reduce allergenicity. By immunoblotting with a monoclonal antibody against a major soybean allergen (Gly m Bd 30K), two of eight proteases so far tested were selected to achieve a reduction in allergenicity. Both antigenicity to the monoclonal antibody and allergenicity to the sera from soybeansensitive patients proved to be markedly reduced by processing with either protease. Thus, soybeans treated with an appropriate protease may possibly be supplied as a hypoallergenic foodstuff for patients.
