Soya Beans

About the product:

Soybeans are a popular Asian legume. Soy is frequently used to replace meat in vegetarian diets. People can consume them, drink them as milk substitutes, and take supplements containing them. Soy oil may also be extracted and used to manufacture environmentally friendly gasoline, as well as candles, crayons, and motor lubricants. For individuals wishing to eliminate dairy from their diet, soy milk and cheese are also viable solutions. Soybeans also produce soy oil, which may be used in cooking or as a food additive. People can utilise the residual material after separating the oil from soybeans to manufacture food for farm animals and pets. Soy protein powder and isoflavone supplements are made by several businesses.
