Studies have shown that adding soy to a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may help reduce your risk of heart disease. According to The American Heart Association, 25 grams of soy protein per day is needed to show significant cholesterol-lowering effects. One-half cup (128g) of raw soybeans has 188 calories and provides an excellent source of protein, fiber, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, manganese, vitamin C, thiamin, and folate, as well as a good source of riboflavin, and niacin. In addition, studies show soy isoflavones such as genistein may help prevent and treat prostate cancer and may reduce breast cancer risk. Soy is versatile as it comes in many different liquid and solid forms, including such foods as soymilk, soy yogurt, soy cheese, tofu and tempeh, which serve as popular meat substitutes in vegetarian diets.Back to Top
