Soy and Me
I added soy into my diet a while back just because I know it’s a healthy decision to make for myself and my family. When you hear the word Soy or Soya, you’re probably thinking tofu, right? Tofu is delicious but lots of foods are made soy protein. Soy milk, cheese, and tons of snacks are included in this nutritious bunch. Did you know that oil is also in the mix of soy products? Soy bean oil is commonly known as vegetable oil.
About Soy Bean Oil
Soy bean oil promotes smart eating and doesn’t break my bank! Soybean oil offers better-for-you health benefits and is about a tenth of the cost of some competing oils.
Soybean oil has several better-for-you health benefits that make it the perfect choice for family cooking:
- Contains 0g trans fats per serving
- Serves as a principal source of omega-3s which can help reduce blood pressure and prevent heart disease
- Great source of vitamin E which prevents cell damage that may lead to diseases such as cancer and heart disease
Soybean oil is one of the most versatile ingredients that you can use in the kitchen, helping you create all your favorite traditional meals without compromising taste. Here’s how easy it is to incorporate soy into your diet too. This recipe is from www.unitedsoybean.org – http://www.soyconnection.com
