Soya protein is a protein that is isolated from soybean. It is made from soybean meal that has been dehulled and defatted. Dehulled and defatted soybeans are processed into three kinds of high protein commercial products: soya flour, concentrates, and isolates.
Soybeans can be eaten whole or made into a variety of products, including tofu, tempeh, soy milk and other dairy and meat alternatives.
It can also be turned into soya protein powder.
For vegetarians, vegans and those who avoid or are allergic to dairy foods, soya protein often serve as a major source of this important nutrient.
Soya protein isolate powder is made from defatted soybean flakes that have been washed in either alcohol or water to remove the sugars and dietary fiber. They’re then dehydrated and turned into a powder.
This product contains very little fat and no cholesterol.
Soya protein powder is used to make infant soy formula, as well as a variety of meat and dairy alternatives.
