    Soybeans belong to the legume family and are native to East Asia (China). They have been an important protein source in the Orient for over five thousand years. Soybeans have only been introduced to the Western world since the 20th century. Soybeans grow on a variety of soils and a wide range of climates, ranging form tropical Brazil to the snowy island Hokkaido in the north of Japan. As soybeans mature in the pod, they ripen into hard, dry beans. Although most soybeans are yellow, there are also some varieties which are black, brown or green coloured. A given area of land planted with soybeans can produce much more protein than land planted with other crops, or if the land were used to raise cattle.

    The key benefits of soya are its high protein content, vitamins, minerals and insoluble fibre. The soya bean has been transformed into a number of popular soya based foods including:

    • Miso - a fermented soya bean paste that is used as a flavouring, popular in Asian cuisine. It is a good source of many minerals.
    • Tempeh - is an Indonesian specialty typically made by cooking and dehulling soya beans and forming a textured, solid 'cake'. It is a very good source of protein, B vitamins and minerals.
    • Tofu - also known as bean curd is made from soya milk by coagulating the soya proteins with calcium or magnesium salts. The whey is discarded and the curds are processed. It is an excellent source of iron and calcium and a very good source of protein.
    May contain nuts, celery, mustard or sesame seeds.
