What Should You Look For Before You Buy Soy Protein

By Edited Feb 21, 2014 0 1

What Should You Consider Before You Purchase Soy Protein

Many experts claim that we should avoid consuming Soy Protein because it leads to many health problems such weight gaining, endometriosis, ovarian cysts and even cancer. 

Here are two tips on what you should look for before you buy a Soy Protein:

1. Is it GMO-FREE?  Most soy protein on the market today is made from Genetically Modified Organism – food that is processed and chemically altered therefore in such stage created the soybean itself is therefore unnatural and does not have same effects as soybean of organic source.  So look for a label on the package which should read GMO-FREE and if the label is not there you now know it is not made from organic soybean.

2. How is the product made?  Do your own research.  Find out how the product was made?  Was it made from organically grown soybeans and/or was it made from chemically grown soybeans preservatives? What clinical study did it go under?  Was the product published in medical journals? In other words, look for peer reviewed studies and/or medical journals - was it published in such a source? If yes, it will describe how the product was made and/or what scientific procedures were taken prior to the development of the product. 

In addition, find out where the soybean originally comes from and how it was cultivated. Soybeans that are GMO-FREE only grow on Organic Certified Farms. It is important to note that land which has been cultivated by pesticide and chemicals takes about a decade (if not more) to come to its natural state of being. Apparently, a land that was previously cultivated with pesticide and/or was chemically altered takes approximately seven to ten years to come to its natural state and only when it is cultivated naturally (that is without the chemical usage) it then can be referred to as Organically Certified Farm.

In a nutshell, simply look at the quality of the product not how much protein it contains in the jar that you will consume in one month but what kind of quality of protein is in it and what you will be putting into your body.

You will find a huge difference in price once you find the right Soy Protein and if you do your research you will then find out why one is more expensive than the other. It will simply boil down to the quality of the product vs. the price.

In this day and age, the majority of soybean products come from Genetically Modified Foods therefore I am not surprised if studies conclude that the soybeans are bad for you if the research is conducted on individuals who consumed soybeans of a food source that is chemically depleted.

I've always only heard about how "good" soy was for us. Thank you for the information about Genetically Modified Organism!
