Soy Beans are the most nutritious plant food available.

They consist of:

  • All 3 of the macro-nutrients required for good nutrition:
    • COMPLETE protein, i.e. contain ALL the essential amino acids in the amounts needed for human health; in an amino acid profile close in quality to meat, milk and egg protein
    • Carbohydrate; and
    • Fat (soy oil is rich in essential fatty acids, phospholipids, natural sterols – all of which have known important health benefits)
  • Vitamins (including folic acid)
  • Minerals (including calcium and iron)
  • Prebiotics (e.g. Raffinose and Stachyose, which “feed” the good colonic bacteria = probiotics, resulting in a stronger, healthier colon with enormous benefits to the immune system).
  • Fibre
  • Isoflavones (accounting for 75% of soy’s protective effects in the human body)
