Just checked your profile and saw that your LO has autism? alot of kids what are sensitive to casein cannot tolerate soy either.  there are other milk replacements out there though. there's Darifree, which is a potato based milk, Rice Dream which is rice based and several comapnies make almond milk. Does your son have a lot of tummy issues? Will you be eliminating gluten and phenol as well?  A great book about the diet is "unraveling the mystery of Autism and PPD" by Karyn Seroussi.

 I HAVE A COOK BOOK AND TWO OTHER BOOKS ON THE GLUTEN AND CASEIN FREE DIET. I'M JUST TRYING HARD TO AVOID IT.

I'M WAITING FOR FURTHER TESTING TO FIND OUT EVERYTHING HE'S ALERGIC TO, EVEN THOUGH I ALREADY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE.

I THINK HE HAS YEAST BUILD-UP IN HIS DIGESTIVE SYSTEM. DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THAT?

No there isn't any casein in soy milk but I would discourage you from giving that to your son.  Here are a few websites for you to check out:

Be sure to read every single label on anything you buy for him everytime!   Companies change their ingredients so you can't always be sure it will be the same every time you buy a specific product.

I do know a little bit about yeast build up.  That's another reason i recommended that book, lol. It covers a whole lot more stuff then just the diet.  But, i will answer any questions you have to the best of my ability. be careful of tose allergy tests though, my son develops hives and excema when he gets anything with milk, but when they tested him fro a milk allergy, he "didn't have one"
