SOY Deliciousness, Packed Up in a Pod
Few foods pack a nutritional punch quite like that of the humble soybean. Calorie for calorie, soy packs complete protein, unsaturated fats, fiber, B-vitamins, folic acid, potassium, calcium, zinc, and iron.
The fat found in soy is mostly unsaturated and is 100% cholesterol-free, and soy is one of few plant foods that offer a complete protein (meaning that it contains all the essential amino acids that the body can't produce).
Beyond the practical and nutritional virtues of soy, it also happens to have a great flavor profile and texture similar to dairy milk – with none of the lactose or dairy.
