Soyfoods Are Ideal For The Heart

The Soyfoods Association of North America (SANA) has welcomed the new recommendations issued by the American Heart Association (AHA). These recommendations// include eating foods high in fiber and using vegetable-based substitutes, leaner animal products and fish so that saturated fat, trans fat, and cholesterol in the diet are decreased.

Soyfoods fit the profile of foods recommended by the AHA, providing fiber, high-quality protein, vitamins and minerals with low saturated fat and no cholesterol.

Furthermore, we are pleased that the expert committee specifically recognizes the potential benefits of soy protein replacing protein from meat and dairy foods in lowering low-density lipoprotein (LDL, or 'bad' cholesterol), especially in people with hypercholesterolemia, who are at high risk for coronary vascular disease (CVD). In a statement released by AHA earlier this year, studies comparing soy proteins to animal sources found that soy proteins resulted in a weighted average decrease of three percent LDL, translating to a 6 percent reduction in a person’s risk for developing heart disease. A recent meta-analysis of 33 studies involving more than 1,749 subjects, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, which showed that the addition of soy protein to the diet resulted in a 5.3 percent reduction in LDL cholesterol, which translates into a 10 percent CHD risk reduction. The impact on a public health basis could be significant and reduce CHD morbidity and mortality rates. Intriguing evidence also suggests that soy may exert other coronary benefits such as decreasing triglycerides and improving blood vessel elasticity.

Soyfoods can be enjoyed in many forms beyond soy-based burgers and tofu. Try calcium-fortified soy-based substitutes for milk, cheese or yogurt, or squeeze edamame fresh from the pod as a snack or tossed into a salad.

Replacing the last set of guidelines published in 2000, the new recommendations appeared in the June 19, 2006 issue of Circulation on line. The Diet and Lifestyle Recommendations emphasize:

- further reducing saturated and trans fatty acids in the diet compared to the last set of guidelines;

- eating a diet rich in vegetables, fruits and whole-grain foods;

- achieving and maintaining healthy cholesterol, blood pressure and blood glucose levels

A non-profit organization founded in 1979, Soyfoods Association of North America (SANA) represents more than 50 members, comprised of large and small soyfoods companies, growers and suppliers of soybeans, nutritionists, equipment representatives, food scientists, and retailers. SANA encourages sustainability, integrity, and growth of the soyfoods industry by promoting the benefits of soy-based foods, and is committed to increasing consumer awareness, establishing and adopting standards for new and existing soyfoods, and being the key resource on soyfoods and ingredients in the industry.
