►Soybeans are legumes and part of the pea family that is the world’s major food crop today. They are also processed into oil, milk, tofu, and soy protein. The two major variety of soybeans cultivated are the yellow and black. They are also known as Edamame in China and Japan. Soybeans are low in fat and calories and are a rich source of protein, fiber and many other essential vitamin and mineral.
►Replacing more than 40 percent of other flours with soy flour is not recommended because soy-rich dough browns faster. Since soy flour is gluten-free, it cannot replace all the wheat or rye flour in yeast raised bread. Soyfood cookbooks, soy flour packages, and company web sites supply tasty recipes.
►Soy flour is a great source of high quality soy protein, dietary fiber and important bio-active components, such as isflavones. Soyfoods are a healthy protein source because of the high quality of protein that contains all essential amino acids needed for growth.
