Soy is a food that has a high nutritional value. In fact, 1 cup of cooked soybeans contains the same amount of proteins as 100 grams of meat, poultry or cooked fish.
And the proteins in soy, unlike other legumes, are considered to be ‘whole’. Moreover, like all legumes, soy has no cholesterol and it contains only good fats: monounsaturated and polyunsaturated, including omega-3!
Soy is also a very high source of dietary fiber and has plenty of isoflavones and minerals such as calcium, iron and zinc, among others.
For all these reasons, it’s good to include soy into your diet. You will find many recipes featuring soy products (soy milk, miso, edamame, tofu etc) on SOSCuisine.com.
