Soya beans Are Valuable
One of the richest sources of protein is found in the Soya bean. This simple food contains a complete protein in itself. The soybean has been cultivated in China and Japan for many centuries, long before any written history in these countries.
Soyabeans are very rich in protein. They actually contain twice as much protein as meat and four times as much as eggs! Soyabeans also contain a high quality vegetable oil that has no cholesterol in it. In addition to this, soyabean oil also contains lecithin, which is of value in controlling the level of cholesterol within the body. Soyabeans are also low in carbohydrates so that diabetic patients can use them freely. Soyabeans are highly alkaline, and in addition also contain all the important vitamins.
Sprouted soyabeans are used in many parts of the orient. They are an excellent source of vitamin C and are rich in vitamins A and B complex. Babies who are allergic to cow’s milk can usually take soyabean milk without any trouble.
Modern nutritionists and food chemists are busy in many areas searching for new ways of using this important protein food. Without doubt, the soyabean is an overpopulated world. It is one of our best foods, nature’s great gift to man.
