- The soybean has a unique composition. It offers a good balance of nutrients which include high quality protein, fiber and essential fatty acids such as omega-3 and omega-6. In fact, soybeans are often referred to as the best protein source originating from the soil. The legume is the only vegetable which contains almost a complete protein equivalent in quality to protein found in dairy and meat products. Our bodies produce 11 of the 20 amino acids we require - the building blocks of protein - the remaining 9 amino acids must come from the foods we eat. Soy protein provides 8 of these 9 amino acids essential for human health.
- Soyfoods, such as tofu, are an excellent source of iron, zinc, magnesium and B vitamins. Tofu is also easy to digest, cholesterol-free and low in saturated fat & sodium. Tofu made with calcium sulfate also provides a good source of calcium. The firmer varieties of tofu provide an excellent source of soy protein since the tofu contains less water content and more soy concentrate. In general, the firmer the tofu, the higher the protein content.
- The National Cancer Institute has identified several potential anticancer substances, or anti-carcinogens, in soybeans. Specifically, cancers that are "hormone dependent" such as breast and prostate cancer, are most impacted by soy consumption.
- Many foods that are rich in protein are also high in saturated fat and cholesterol. That is not the case with soy. In fact a link between soy and lower cholesterol levels has been demonstrated through a number of studies.
- In October 1999, after much review, the FDA (Food & Drug Administration) approved a health claim regarding soy consumption. "25 grams of soy protein a day, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease."
- In December 2000, the AHA (American Heart Association) endorsed soy consumption. The American Heart Association's Dietary Guidelines for Healthy American Adults, now recommends including foods with soy protein with naturally occurring isoflavones for heart health along with other heart-healthy diet modifications.
- Whole soybeans, fortified soymilk, texturized soy protein and tempeh are foods especially rich in calcium. Some brands of tofu made with a calcium salt (calcium sulfate) are an excellent source of calcium.
- The calcium in soyfoods is very easily absorbed by the body, thus improving its efficacy against bone loss.
- A number of studies have demonstrated that consumption of soy, and the isoflavones present in soy, help to minimize the symptoms of menopause. The isoflavones, or phytoestrogens, are essentially plant hormones that have a slight estrogenic effect when consumed, which helps ease menopausal symptoms.
- A diet low in fat, high in complex carbohydrates, and moderate in protein is recommended for those who suffer from adult-onset diabetes. Soy foods possess these characteristics. In addition, the high fiber content of soy foods like tempeh, soy flour, and texturized soy products aid in slowing the absorption of glucose into the blood stream.
