Overview
Soy protein is an excellent way to add vegetable based protein to one's diet. In October 1999, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved labeling claims for dietary soy protein stating that it may reduce heart disease. Diets rich in soy protein have also been found to reduce serum levels of total cholesterol. In addition to providing both essential and non-essential amino acids, our Soy Protein Powder is an excellent source of Soy Isoflavones.

Scientists classify Soy Isoflavones from the plant Glycine max as phytoestrogens. Phyto is a Greek root word meaning plant, so phytoestrogens are plant-based compounds that have estrogen-like activity. Because they are structurally similar to estrogens, isoflavones exert weak estrogenic activity in the body. Because of their estrogen-like effects, isoflavones have been studied for a wide spectrum of health benefits. Soybeans and Soy foods like tofu are the best dietary source of isoflavones; however many Soy protein concentrates and Soy products processed with alcohol may not contain isoflavones. Our Soy products are processed using only water and are derived from Soy that has not been genetically engineered.

Our Soy Protein Powder is available in creamy vanilla flavor (16 oz. offering 24 grams of protein per serving) and rich chocolate flavor (17.9 oz. offering 14 grams of protein per serving).
