Do croissants and good quality bread contain soya ?

Update:

Americans can you only answer if you know about croissants here in Europe, I am asking this on Yahoo UK

    it might contain soybean oil but that would then be listed on the ingredient label. Since there are allergies to soy products, it is generally listed where ever its in food.

    Real brioche (used for croissants) and bread dough contains flour activated by yeast, water and fat (small amounts although brioche has twice as much as bread and traditionally uses butter).  Most recipes also contain salt.  The stuff you buy in the supermarket can contain soya flour and any amount of chemicals.

    That depends on the bread and even ones you find that don't say it, they may have used a soy starter(bread starter) so you would need to ask your grocer/artisan bread maker and when they have dozens of rolls and loaves and you saunter in saying, any of these have soy? and you'll probably get a sideways look. Oh and which one of these contain gluten? Were peanuts made at this factory? Is there a meat processing plant within 100 miles of your factory? As it sits your question looks like it came out of the backside of a vague troll.
