While soybeans provide a certain degree of nutritional value, that is not always the case with soy products. Refer to the calorie counter for your favorite soy products to determine the calories and nutritional information.

Nutritional Value

Soybeans contain a wide variety of vitamins and minerals including manganese, iron, vitamin B2 and magnesium. They also contain significant levels of protein, fiber, carbohydrate and omega-3 fats. Soy products, on the other hand, are often heavily processed and thus lose some of their nutritional value. Over 90% of the soy products made in the U.S. have been genetically modified.

Types of Soy Products

Certain soy products provide good nutritional value and act as a healthy alternative to certain foods. Soy milk, for example, is rich in protein and lower in calories than dairy milk – it also doesn’t contain casein or lactose which can be problematic for some people. Soy cheese and other soy products are also heavily consumed by vegetarians and vegans who choose not to consume animal products but still require a balance of protein, carbs, and fats in their diet.
There is a great deal of controversy regarding the benefits of soy products – they do provide benefits but too much soy can also cause problems. Refer to the calorie calculator for your favorite soy products to determine the calories and nutritional information.

Phytoestrogen Content

Soy products contain phytoestrogens, a chemical compound that is similar to the hormone estrogen. Estrogen influences several hormonal and biological processes in the body including metabolism, blood and bone health, cholesterol, and fluid balance. For women, an excess of phytoestrogen may interfere with the natural activity of estrogen which can lead to hormone imbalance.

Benefits for Men

Estrogen plays a similar role in the male body as it does in the female body, but soy products can actually have some significant benefits for men. For one thing, soy products may help to prevent prostate cancer by promoting healthy prostate function – this is due to the isoflavone content of soy products. Soy products also help to maintain colon health.
