Both soy protein and soybean oil carry a FDA heart health claim. The FDA’s authorized health claim recognizes soy’s cholesterol-lowering effects and that soy may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.

The widespread growing regions in the U.S. ensure a steady supply of soybeans, despite inclement weather. The shorter supply chain translates to reduced transportation costs and a lower carbon footprint.

  • 4X more growing acreage for U.S. soybeans compared to other oilseed crops ensures stable production volume from year to year, regardless of weather.
