Health & Nutrition - Fall 2016 - Vol 24, No 4 Soy Oil and Protein
In This Issue:
- Soybean oil has a very heart-healthy fatty acid profile as it is comprised of almost 90% unsaturated fatty acids, about two-thirds of which is linoleic acid. Soybeans have great potential for use as human food because of their high level of good quality protein and their unique functional and nutritional properties. Soy protein supplies all nine essential amino acids and provides many functional benefits to the food processors. The future of soybean oil for food manufacturing and home food preparation continues to be bright as new varieties with health-promoting benefits and food applications are being developed, and novel ways to modify fats and oils are created.
