View Full Version : Soy Protein

Does anyone eat soybean or soybean products? It is a cheap and quick way to get protein. I eat a lot of soy burgers. They are relatively low in fat and taste pretty good (if you get the right ones) . The fat they do have is of the good kind. They have chicken patties that for the life of me taste like real chicken patties.

This leads me to be believe that either Tyson or the fake chicken patty factory is lying. :D

Seriously though, i find that Morning Star Farms make some good stuff. I like it a lot better then the Boca burgers.

Does anyone else eat this stuff?

I strongely suggest running a search on soy through the diet and nutrition forum.

You might consider limiting your consumption.

(Boca burgers are...were good though :))

Vegetable protien tends to have a lower absorbtion rate than meat protein but it's not bad despite what some people say. I like roasted soy nuts myself (very iso-caloric) as a snack because they pack easily.

I hear a lot of people bashing soy products, but I've never seen anything substantial indicating it's bad except opinions and wives tales tuttut
