Soy

Both vegans and non-vegans are mostly protein deficient. This is a common problem among Indians. 68% of Indians suffer from health disorders related to protein deficiency. And this is not only among the population below poverty line but also in middle and upper class of society. Sometimes due to lack of knowledge about food value and sometimes due to in-proficient food habits such deficiency occurs.

Poor muscle health, deformed growth, and many other deformities are the outcome of protein deficiency. Soy Protein is the best environment-friendly and health-friendly food that is easy to make, tasty to have and is rich in essential amino-acid, minerals and vitamins. It is highly economical and environmentally sustainable.

Soy = Milk+ Egg+ Meat   

It is the only plant protein that has enriched food value. It is superior to milk, meat, and egg. Less water, less energy, and less land capacity are required to cultivate it. It has reduced impact on the earth as releases fewer greenhouse gases. With a variety of food products array, soy is well addressing the demand of the age. It is commercial and has a low carbon footprint. It keeps carbon down due to low emission and thus supplies amino acid in adequate amount.

Director of Department of Nutrition at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Kathy McManus stated that “It’s high in polyunsaturated fats, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, and low in saturated fat. Natural soy products — like tofu or edamame — could replace red meat and other animal sources of protein rich in saturated fat,”

Footprints for Soy Protein

Livestock production and even crops production has bio-chemical emissions that affect eco-system. Livestock has a devastating and large environmental footprint. Its ruminant produces methane and also nitrous oxide emanation. But for soy cultivation such emissions are negligible. Carbon footprint is again 8 to 80 times lesser than animal protein.

If you want to reduce your impact on the earth, make the earth a sustainable plant then Soy protein may be your initiator in this regards. While we bang on organic products nowadays Soy Protein is best to kick start health friendly and eco-friendly food staff. Less water, less fertilizer, and lesser field space are required to grow it but food value is on a higher scale. Induce it in your food chart and make your family healthy with a healthy environment for long existence.
