DOSAGE

Step 1

The low fat, low-caloric source of protein i.e. soy protein is rich in fiber and minerals. Consuming 25g of soy protein per day can provide you with numerous cardio-protective health benefits. 

 

Step 2

Substitute fatty protein food items with nuts, red meat or a diet rich in fruits and vegetables to lose weight. Replacing your meal with soy protein shakes or drinks like a smoothie can help you shed those extra pounds much faster. You can also sprinkle soy protein powder on soup or ice cream to add healthy calories to them. Those healing from a recent surgery or illness might require more of proteins- soy milk or soy protein powder in whole milk can be used as a snack.

 

SIDE EFFECTS OF SOY PROTEIN

There are no reported side effects of soy protein supplements. If you’re taking any prescription medicine, consult your doctor before taking any soy protein supplement.

Soy protein found in supplements is made up of soy isoflavones, a type of phytoestrogen, a plant-based substance that produces estrogen. While a large percentage of the isoflavones may be lost during processing, but all soy products contain at least some of this phytoestrogen. These micronutrients reduce the risk of certain types of cancer and osteoporosis. On the other hand, there was one study which reported that consumption of tofu leads to earlier cognitive decline in a group of middle-aged men.

A research at Harvard School of Public Health in 2008 concluded that men who consumed soy food products every day had lower sperm count as compared to men who did not eat soy. This was especially true of obese men. 

 

 

Being the plant protein free from fat, lactose and cholesterol, soy is renowned to be one of the most digestible protein sources ever. Soy bean is a good source of metabolic proteins like enzymes, trypsin inhibitors, and cysteine proteases (similar to papain) which makes it an ideal food for the vegans since it provides comparable amount of proteins- in contrast to the animal counterparts.

A defatted soybean meal provides enough soy proteins, necessary for human nutrition. It contains phytoestrogens, the plant derived compound that binds to the estrogen receptors in the body and reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases, breast cancer, osteoporosis and even menopausal symptoms.
The three types of protein: Casein, whey protein, and isolated soy protein are complete proteins with a Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS) of 1.00.

TYPES OF SOY PROTEIN
 
Edible soy proteins are mainly available in three forms: soy flour, soy protein isolates and soy protein concentrates. 
 
Soy Protein isolate is a purified form of soy protein with 90% of protein content and a neutral flavor. It is mainly used by the food industry or by the pharmaceutical industries.
 
Soy Protein Concentrate contains 70% soy protein which is produced by removing the carbs. It is used as an ingredient in food products like baked foods, meat and cereals. When used in poultry and meat products, it increases water and fat retention and improves its nutritional value.
 
Soy Flour is gluten-free and can be used to make home-made soy milk, baked and fried foods (like doughnuts) or breads.  
 
PRODUCTION
 
Soy protein isolates are derived from soy flour that is highly soluble in water. Defatted soy flakes are soaked in water and acidified to a pH range of 4-5. The extracted protein curd is then collected and separated from whey and is neutralized with alkali to form sodium proteinate salt.
 
Production of soy protein concentrate includes several treatments like immobilizing of soy globulin proteins and other leaching processes. Necessary carbs, soy whey proteins and salts are leached from defatted soy flour which is then leached with aqueous acids and chilled water containing calcium or magnesium cations. The flakes are later on heat-treated and leached with hot water to retain proteins from them. 
 
When soybeans are grinded into fine powder, we get soy flour. It mainly comes in three forms:  full-fat which contains all the natural oils, defatted flour (which contains no oil) and lecithinated flour which has lecithin added to it.
 
HOW DOES SOY PROTEIN WORKS AND WHAT ARE ITS BENEFITS

AMINO ACIDS FOR ATHLETES

Soy protein isolate is a good source of amino acids like glutamine and arginine that work as natural signals for growth hormone release and in building muscles. Arginine regulates the blood flow and supplies your muscles with necessary amino acids. While glutamine is known for regulating your muscle protein balance and acts as a precursor of glutathione, an antioxidant that reduces free radicals in your body that lead to oxidative stress. Soy protein also contains BCAAs like leucine that provides energy to the muscles and stimulates muscle protein synthesis.
 
AIDS IN EXERCISE RECOVERY
Strenuous exercising creates an imbalance between oxidant and antioxidant levels in your body, leading to oxidative stress that further leads to cell degradation. Soy protein is rich in antioxidants that help protect the muscle tissues from getting damaged, resulting into reduced muscle soreness and fatigue.
 
SOY DOES NOT ALTER ESTROGEN OR TESTOSTERONE CONCENTRATIONS
Soy has no estrogen nor does it alter the testosterone level in healthy men, it rather contains isoflavones and there is no scientific evidence that soy protein imbalances your hormonal levels or lead to any unwanted effects in your muscle development or physical characteristics of your body. 
 
REDUCES THE RISK OF OSTEOPOROSIS 
There is a direct relationship between menopause and development of osteoporosis. Early menopause can cause hormonal imbalance, resulting into absent or infrequent menstruation which further leads to loss of bone mass. Soybeans contain isoflavones that are known to ease menopausal symptoms, like hot flashes. Even more profound is the ability of soy to reduce your risk of osteoporosis, a consequence of reduced bone density. 
According to Dr. Bahram Arjmandi, Ph.D., leading researcher of the Department of Human Nutrition at the University of Illinois at Chicago, "We found that while bone density increased with the consumption of soy isolate, more importantly, bone quality was improved. This is very important to the growing population of Americans confronting the onset of osteoporosis."
 

 

WHAT ARE ISOFLAVONES? HOW DOES ISOFLAVONES AFFECT HEALTH?

Soy is rich in isoflavones – plant-based compounds called phytoestrogens that have estrogen-like activity but are very different from human estrogen. These help build stronger bones, maintain a healthy heart and promote hormonal balance during menopause.

HOW DOES SOY AFFECT THE HEART?

Soy is a rich source of proteins and fiber. It contains heart-healthy fats and micronutrients, is low in saturated fat and is cholesterol free. Soy protein provides you with essential amino acids and improves your blood vessel elasticity. 

HOW DOES SOY AFFECT BONE HEALTH?

Soy foods contain soy isoflavones as well as bone-building calcium and vitamin K, which are essential for bone mineralization. These isoflavones reduce bone mineral density to lower down the risk of osteoporosis in women that are going through menopause.

DOES SOY UPSET YOUR STOMACH?

If you are not allergic to soy, soy proteins are safe to consume. There are no clinical studies which conclude that soy causes more gastrointestinal disturbances than any other commonly consumed food items. Furthermore, soymilk is a wholesome milk alternative for those who can't drink milk due to lactose intolerance. 

IS SOY PROTEIN AN ALLERGEN?

Soy protein is one of the eight major food allergens, along with proteins from milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, and wheat but this varies from person to person. 

CAN SOY INTAKE DECREASE SPERM COUNT, DELAY PUBERTY OR DECREASE SIZE OF SEXUAL ORGANS?

Researchers in Tokyo reported two studies that assessed the impact of soy intake on both sperm and semen parameters. In one study conducted on 32 healthy young men consuming diets supplemented with milk protein isolate, low-isoflavone isolated soy protein or high-isoflavone soy protein, no significant effect of diet on semen parameters was observed, including semen volume, sperm concentration, sperm count, total motile sperm count, sperm motility or sperm morphology. 

In the second study, 20 volunteers were given different levels of isoflavones for 3 months. When compared to baseline, there were no statistically significant differences in ejaculate volume, sperm concentration, count and motility of spermatozoa in men given isoflavones (Messina, 2009).
