Soybeans: Protein Rich

Along with rice and wheat, soybeans are one of the world’s great staples. Of the three, soybeans are the most nourishing. They are very high in protein (37%), much higher than meat (15 – 20%) and any other plant, and the only plant source of complete protein. Furthermore, soy protein is considered very good quality. Many Asians with a low-meat diet rely on soy foods for an adequate protein intake. Soybeans are almost as good as meat in amino acid balance.
