Product details

 

Soybeans or soya beans (Glycine max) are a type of legume native to eastern Asia.

They are an important component of Asian diets and have been consumed for thousands of years. Today, they are mainly grown in Asia and South and North America.

In Asia, soybeans are often eaten whole, but heavily processed soy products are much more common in Western countries.

Various soy products are available, including soy flour, soy protein, tofu, soy milk, soy sauce, and soybean oil.

Soybeans contain antioxidants and phytonutrients that are linked to various health benefits. However, concerns have been raised about potential adverse effects.

This article tells you everything you need to know about soybeans.

Soybeans are mainly composed of protein but also contain good amounts of carbs and fat.

Protein

Soybeans are among the best sources of plant based protein

The protein content of soybeans is 36–56% of the dry weight.

One cup (172 grams) of boiled soybeans boasts around 29 grams of protein.

The nutritional value of soy protein is good, although the quality is not quite as high as animal protein ().

The main types of protein in soybeans are glycinin and conglycinin, which make up approximately 80% of the total protein content. These proteins may trigger allergic reactions in some people.

Consumption of soy protein has been linked with a modest decrease in cholesterol levels.

Fat

Soybeans are classified as oilseeds and used to make soybean oil.

The fat content is approximately 18% of the dry weight — mainly polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids, with small amounts of saturated fat.

The predominant type of fat in soybeans is linoleic acid, accounting for approximately 50% of the total fat content.
