Understanding health benefits of soya
In South Africa, most long-term vegans were introduced to Good Hope Soya as their first dairy milk alternative. Soya-based foods – such as tofu, tempe, edamame and miso – often form an integral part of the vegetarian and vegan diet. Soya is high in protein but is still characterised as controversial at times, with uncertainty surrounding it’s nutritional profile and impact on hormone levels.
Soya is high in protein, containing all of the essential amino acids, as well as important minerals such as magnesium and potassium.
The concerns surrounding health effects are as a result of the presence of isoflavones in soya beans. Isoflavones are similar to the structure of human estrogens, binding to estrogen receptors and are therefore called “phytoestrogens”. Read more about Soya on the ProVeg blog, here.
