What is Soy Protein?
Coming from the humble soybean (part of the legume family), soy protein isolate is a completely meat-free, plant-based protein option that is a great source of protein for both vegetarians and vegans alike with an impressive nutritional profile.
Most importantly, soy protein is a complete protein containing all 9 essential amino acids; this allows it to fully serve protein's function of building muscles, supporting cell functions and maintaining healthy bones and body tissues. Read more about the importance of protein here.
Health Benefits of Soy Protein
Soy protein is a high quality protein option with no cholesterol and low amounts of saturated fat compared to a meat-based equivalent. There’s further evidence that minimally processed soy might actually lower LDL levels (the “bad cholesterol”) and raise HDL levels (good cholesterol)!
It's also high in vitamin B, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, and potassium, which are needed to support the immune system and energy production. Soy protein is also relatively high in zinc, unlike many other plant-based sources - essential to keeping your energy levels up and promoting overall physical wellness.
