The Trade-in: Dangerous processed soy products for fermented soy products

January 27, 2015

Trade-in the dangerous processed soy products for fermented soy products.For years we’ve been bombarded with information promoting the health benefits of soy. We’ve been told that it’s a super food – all the while its adverse effects have remained hidden.

Recent studies have exposed its true nature including its contribution to impaired thyroid functioning, developmental abnormalities in children, various cancers, pancreatic disorders, infertility, and kidney stone formation. It’s filled with anti-nutrients like phytic acid and phytoestrogens which deplete nutrients when processed by the body, leaving us nutrient deficiencient.

Soy is also one of the leading genetically modified (GM) foods on earth (including corn). You really have to watch what you eat because soy is found in protein bars, bottled fruit drinks, baked goods and cereals. It’s also on the labels of many processed foods today.

While the culprits of these effects include soymilk, soy cheese, burgers, ice cream, and other processed forms, fermented soy products actually contribute positively to human health. Fermented soy products provide the body with natural probiotics, which aid in digestion while the fermentation of the soy reduces the level of the structures that interfere with estrogen production and function. Examples of these healthful sources include Natto, Tempeh, Miso, along with Tofu. Each type boasts a different kind of flavor and texture, so start exploring, mix up your dinner routine, and make the switch today.
