Soy protein is considered a complete protein in that it contains ample amounts of all the essential amino acids plus several other macronutrients with a nutritional value roughly equivalent to that of animal protein of high biological value. Soy protein is unique among the plant-based proteins because it contains bioactive isoflavones, a group of compounds with a variety of biological properties that may potentially benefit human health.* Soy Protein Concentrate provides a very economical concentrated source of soy protein for those who wish to augment their food protein with this convenient supplement.
In October 1999, FDA approved a health claim that can be used on labels of soy-based foods/products as protective against coronary heart disease. The FDA based this decision on clinical studies showing that at least 25 grams of soy protein per day lowered total and LDL cholesterol. To qualify for the claim foods must contain 6.25 grams of soy protein per serving and fit other criteria, such as being low in fat, cholesterol, and sodium.52
Moreover, an increasing body of evidence from nutritional intervention studies in animals and humans indicates that dietary soy protein has beneficial effects on weight management. Consumption of soy protein can favorably affect satiety and reduce excess body fat in overweight animals and humans. Soy protein ingestion also improves insulin resistance.53
