For April, Economize With Tasty Soyfoods
Date:3/31/2009

WASHINGTON, March 31 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In tough economic times, grocery shoppers want the biggest bang for their buck. Soyfoods help save money, while providing high quality protein without cholesterol and low in saturated fat. During April, Soyfoods Month, several Soyfoods Association of North America (SANA) members are offering coupons and discounts on a variety of tasty soyfoods to help ease the stress on grocery budgets. To learn more, visit www.soyfoods.org/news/soyfoods-month-2009. Mohamed Obanni, President of SANA and Senior Director of R&D, Hain Celestial Group, says that with good taste, good health, and good price, "soyfoods have it all!"

Protein and nutrient-rich soyfoods can replace other protein foods higher in saturated fat and cholesterol in the diet to help consumers practice good nutrition. Since new research in the Archives of Internal Medicine encourages reducing the amount of red meats in your diet, using more soy-based meat alternatives makes good health and economic sense. Start today -- pour soymilk on cereal, enjoy a veggie burger, stir fry tofu or chicken-less chicken slices, snack on healthy soy bars, or cut calories with non-dairy frozen desserts. For more ideas on including soyfoods in your diet and tips for soyfood meals, download Simply Soyfoods at www.soyfoods.org/news/soyfoods-month-2009.

Money-smart soyfoods help consumers to gain health without spending a fortune. A large variety of tasty soyfoods appear on shelves of supermarkets nationwide. "Soyfoods generally contain significant amounts of key nutrients that Americans are advised to consume more of, and are low in nutrients that Americans should avoid," according to Julie Obbagy, R.D., Ph.D. Vice President of Scientific Affairs for SANA. For example, fortified soymilk, which is the most popular soy product consumed by Americans, is a "high" source of calcium and vitamin D, a "good source" of vitamin A, and also provides high quality protein, iron and potassium. Whole soybeans, or edamame, are "high" sources of fiber, magnesium, potassium, and calcium, all nutrients Americans lack in their diets. Soyfoods lack or have reduced amounts of several nutrients which are in excess in American diets such as cholesterol, saturated fat and calories.

Science shows that soyfoods are a key part of a healthy heart diet and can help consumers maintain a healthy weight. Soyfoods fit into nearly every category of USDA's MyPyramid -- including milk, vegetables, meat and beans, grain products, and oils sections.
