New Study: Health Professionals Support Biotechnology's Use In Food Products And Sustainable Farming
Date:4/24/2012

ST. LOUIS, Mo., April 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- A 2012 study found that 77 percent of healthcare professionals recognize the health benefits of including soy in consumer diets, with menopause relief, protein source and heart health topping the list of specific benefits they identify. Study participants also view soybean oil as healthy as canola oil, and perceive agricultural biotechnology as positive if it enhances the nutritional benefits of food products. The findings were part of a comprehensive healthcare professional study sponsored by the United Soybean Board and conducted by an independent market research firm.    

Nearly two-thirds of healthcare professionals view biotechnology as a positive method for food production (61 percent). One in three study participants is aware of specific health and nutrition benefits (33 percent); within that group, health professionals most often mention increased nutrients (52 percent). Additionally, health professionals identify a number of other positive health and agriculture attributes – including many specific to soy – ranging from reduced saturated fat content in food products to the use of fewer pesticides/herbicides in farming.

Often labeled vegetable oil on supermarket shelves, soybean oil rated highly in the study. In fact, the majority of participants perceive soybean oil to be as healthy as canola oil (67 and 69 percent, respectively). Lisa Katic, RD, commented for the United Soybean Board, noting, "I'm encouraged to see health professionals recognize soybean oil as a healthful choice, given that it is rich in polyunsaturated fats and relatively low in saturated fat, and a perfect ingredient for preparing healthful meals such as a vegetable and chicken stir-fry."

Many health professionals report that once aware of biotech enhancements to soybeans that reduce saturated fat and increase omega-3s, they are likely to recommend increased consumption of soy
