5 Foods you didn't know had soy, 2nd edition

In my continuing efforts to eliminate all soy products from the foods we eat at home, I've found even more foods that I never realized contained soy - so much so that I'm making my posts on "Foods you didn't know had soy in them" an occasional series!  This one is my second post (in case you couldn't tell from the title...); be sure to check out the first post.

1. Margarine


2. Potato chips

Baked Lay's Barbecue Flavor, 9 Ounce (Pack of 3)

3. Bottled tomato sauce

Ragu Pasta Sauce, Chunky Garden Style, Super Mushroom, 45 Ounce Bottles (Pack of 4)

4. Vegetable oil

Pure Wesson 100% Natural Vegetable Oil 24 Fl Oz ( Pack of 3)

This might sound obvious, but I was so surprised when I checked my bottle of 'vegetable' oil and the only ingredient was soybean oil.

5. Non-stick cooking spray

Smart Balance Omega Non-Stick Cooking Spray, 6 oz (Pack of 12)
I have this brand in my cabinet.

The above spray has an oil blend that contains soybean oil and it also has soy lecithin.  For each spray I checked, all varieties, even olive and sunflower oil, had soy lecithin.  Your best bet here is to either get one of those pump spray things or go old-school.

Note: While not all varieties of a product contain soy, each of the items pictured above does.  For most items, there are a variety of alternatives; some, however, may be harder to find than others.
