Soy Protein is derived exclusively from soy beans. Soy protein provides a healthy way to get non-animal protein into your diet.
They're great tasting, natural and can have a plethora of healthy effects on the body. It is ideal for high protein/low carbohydrate diets.
Soy protein is approved for those who are lactose intolerant, and can be used as a meat substitute for vegetarians. Much more than just an ingredient for a protein shake, Soy protein can be used for cooking instead of flour, producing high protein foods that are extremely low in fat - a bodybuilder's dream come true!
Types of soy products include soy protein concentrate and soy protein isolate.
- Soy Concentrate is about two thirds protein and can lead to gas in some people due to it also having indigestible carbs.
- Soy Isolate is made from soy concentrate and most of the gas causing carbs are taken out of it. This type digests slower than whey but faster than casein.
