Soybean Consumption And Health Benefits

[Full Text]



Kusuma Neela Bolla



Keywords: health benefits, uses, amount of consumption daily



Abstract: soy foods are rich source of dietary protein. soy based foods are rich in a class of compounds called isoflavones. Isoflavones have chemical structure that is similar to the hormone estrogen receptors commonly called phytoestrogens. the consumption of soy isoflavones appears to result in health benefits for cancer, heart disease, menopausal symptoms and osteoporosis. so as a result soy protein have become major components of food.
