Soybeans are not nuts. However, they take on a nutty, crunchy texture when roasted. For this reason, roasted soybeans, or soy nuts, are often included in snack mixes. To achieve their crunchy texture, the beans can either be deep-fried or dry roasted. We carry dry roasted soy nuts, which are lower in fat because they don't have added oil.
If soy nuts are new to you, there are several ways you can incorporate them into your diet. Roasted soybeans can be used in the place of nuts in many recipes. They can be ground and made into a spread similar to peanut butter. You can add them to baked goods. They also make a delicious salad topping. Adding a seasoning of your choice makes them take on the characteristics of your custom blend of herbs.
Soy nuts are an excellent source of protein. A one-ounce serving provides 10 grams of protein. Soy isoflavones boost bone health, act as an antioxidant, and may ease menopause symptoms. They may also protect against certain cancers.
Soybeans have a high fiber content, which supports gastrointestinal health. B Vitamins, iron, and zinc are among the other important nutrients that are found in large quantities in soybeans. Soy isoflavones may affect hormone balance. Therefore, those who have an elevated cancer risk should consult a doctor prior to adding soy to their diet.
