Soyfood Market The Soyfood Market

The soyfood market has grown significantly over the last 10 to 15 years — particularly since 1999, when the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a health claim on food labels related to soy protein.  The claim states that 25 grams of soy protein per day, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, reduces the risk of coronary heart disease.  The UK Joint Health Claims Initiative (JHCI) issued a similar claim in 2002.  Now more than ever, soy is the healthy protein of the future.

Soyfood Market Soyfood Benefits

For more than 2,000 years, people in Asia have consumed soyfoods as a staple in their diet.  The soybean is the only legume that contains the nine essential amino acids in correct proportion for human health. Research articles suggest soyfoods play a potential role in heart health, may maintain healthy weight, may potentially have an effect on menopausal symptoms (such as the occasional “hot flashes”), and may have an effect on other health factors. Research also suggests soyfoods also might be a factor in improving the environment.  While soy protein is similar in value to that of meat, dairy, and eggs, growing soybeans requires fewer natural resources.{1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10}
