A lot of you must have heard that soya bean is good for health. You must have wondered, how is
soya bean so beneficial to our lives. Let me just tell you a few important things about soya bean
and its benefits.

Soya bean is cultivated extensively for centuries in South East Asia & USA. In India
soyabean cultivation was introduced in 1977. In our country it is mainly cultivated in North-Indian
sub Himalayan belt. In India people started liking this pulse mainly among the vegetarians.

The nutritive value of this wonder bean is enormous. Other than being the cheapest source of high
quality vegetable protein, it also has a good amount of energy and fat. Soyabean contains 43g of
protein per 100g, which is the highest among all pulses. It also contains 19.5g of fat, 21g of
carbohydrates and 432 kilocalorie per 100g. The protein of soyabean contains all the essential
amino acids in adequate amounts except methionine and cystine, due to which it is considered as
the best vegetarian source as far as protein is concerned. It is a good source of vitamins thiamine,
niacin, folic acid, carotene and a fair source of riboflavin. It is also a good source of mineral zinc.

It contains many compounds which can powerfully influence the reduction of the risk of cancer.
Studies have shown that people with high cholesterol who are already on low fat, low cholesterol
diet, 8 weeks substitution of animal protein with soya protein reduce the cholesterol by 23-25%.
Soya products also helps in having a good control on the blood sugar levels as its a good source
of fibre. Due to its high fibre content, it also helps in beating obesity and overweight. Soya proteins
may help in better calcium utilization in order to ward off the agony of osteoporosis.

Beyond contribution of human well being, soyabeans enhance taste in edibles. Supermarket
shelves now carry a wide range of soya products such as chunks, flakes, granules, soymilk, soya
curd, tofu(soya paneer), soya flour and of course the soyabean oil. You could use these products
in your day to day life. Add the soya flour in the breads and cereal preparations like dosa,
chapathi, idli, etc. Add a little of the soya flour to the porridge you make. Just add a fist of the soya
flakes or granules in any of the dishes you prepare. One advantage of these flakes or granules, is
that they have a bland taste. Just soak it in hot water for 2 minute; squeeze out the water and add
it to any dish and it will take up the taste of your dish without making any changes to its original
taste. Use soy milk as a substitute for the regular milk. You can be as innovative as you can in
food preparation and utilize the benefits of soya bean.

Soyabean being the only vegetarian source of high quality protein, is really a great boon to the
vegetarians. It has surely proved to be great flavor of fitness due to its nutritional and other
