I've read a few times people using a specific brand of vitamin as it uses, say, olive oil instead of soybean oil as a carrier.
How do you know which carrier is used? Here in Sydney I've just searched the health food shops for the best vitamin D I could find. Only one brand didn't mention soy/ lactose/ sucrose which is this : http://www.naturalalternative.com.au/SP_V_D.asp
It doesn't specifically mention a carrier (but presumably it must have one)? Am I missing something? Perhaps that is why it includes the fish oil?
Cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3 1000iu) 25??g Fish Oil - Natural 500mg Equiv to Omega-3 Marine Triglycerides 150mg Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) 90mg Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) 60mg

hello from a fellow Sydney-sider!
you need to check out iHerb.com ....our health food stores have barely any range, we get ripped off with price and can't get the right version of many supplements (different forms of mag or zinc for example). iHerb is great.
this is the D I take, I've got my level up to 92 (100 is optimal). it has no soy, uses olive oil carrier
feel free to use my discount code ISO110 on ypur first order for $5 off.
i order quite often from them using airmail - takes about 2 weeks and i make sure it's under $80 worth and less than 4 pounds in weight - so I get shipping for only $4

If it has a carrier it will be on ingredient list. The site you posted doesn't list ingredients so you could shoot them an email to find out.
I personally don't think minimal amounts of soybean oil in supplements is a big deal, how much soybean oil could it be? .5g at the most?
