Soya Beans

What are soya beans?

Soya beans, sometimes  cold soybeans, are a legume grown extensively in Asia. They are very popular with vegans and vegetarians as they contain all of the protein found in meat, Eggs and milk products and are considered a superfood. The soybean, or as the Japanese call it, Shoyu, is used to make a number of soy products ranging from soy sauce right through to miso and tofu. Mature beans are fairly bland to taste, however, the younger green soya bean is much more appetizing. 

Organic soya beans are grown using traditional methods and without synthetic fertilizers, chemicals or genetically modified organisms.

Benefits of eating soya bean

Half a cup of soya beans contains between 40 and 75 mg  of isoflavones. It is generally accepted that between 30 and 50 g of isoflavones provide health benefits. These specific health benefits include -:

  • Decreased risk of cardiovascular related disease including heart attack and stroke. This is due to soy’s ability to reduce total and LDL levels of cholesterol [1]

  • Decreased effects of menopause, particularly reduced instances of hot flashes [2], 

            thought to be due to the high level of phytoestrogens contained within soy.

  • Lowering blood pressure levels[3] and improved elasticity of artery walls[4]

  • Better bone health [5]

  • Potentially improve cognitive function [6]
