Glycine Max(Soya Bean)–The Greatest Oilseed Plants with more Natural Powers which may even cure the most worst of diseases.
Posted by seshdotcom on December 10, 2008
Soya bean was first domesticated in northeastern China in about the eleventh century BC. From there the crop spread to Manchuria, Korea, Japan, and Russia, and to other Asian countries. It was introduced into the USA at the beginning of the twentieth century as a hay or pasture crop,but became cultivated for oilseeds and is now the most important crop in that country bringing in Bulky Cash(To be precise it is Cash crop).
Soya bean is one of the world’s greatest oilseed(Very rich in Oil) plants.Unfortunately Soya bean is a subtropical plant and is cultivated throughout the middle latitudes of the world and because of this you cannot find many of soya bean stuffs over there in Europe(Countries like Germany,England etc.,)
1.One of the important Products made out of Soya is Soya Milk it is made by adding water to defatted(The soya Bean with fat removed)soya bean meal together with some sugar and refined soya oil. It is manufactured by traditional and industrial methods. As the milk is free of lactose, it is suitable for lactose intolerant people.And the other Good thing about Soya Milk is it is easy to prepare and I say you it takes only some 20 to 30 Minutes to prepare (Wow what a damn Good drink it was).
2.Soya is a very good source of calcium, iron, zinc, phosphorus, and magnesium, although because of a compound called Phytin(Present in it) it may reduce the Absorption of Iron in the Body.
3.As far as I know I discussed with a dietician and I heard that Soya is also a very Good dietary fibre
And some of the other things were also said about Soya—Soya is depicted as the best anticancer food.People consuming Soya Products regularly are said to have lower levels of breast cancer in females and prostate cancer in males, less osteoporosis.
