Exploring The Power of Soy Protein with Dupont

Bloggers Meet by Dupont

Recently, I was invited to a blogger’s meet organized by DuPont to spread awareness on the power of soy protein. The panel was educative and they shared everything through a shiny presentation and with high-end stats. The meet kicked off with introductions which was then followed by a discussion on various topics ranging from science & benefits of soy protein to trends & perception around soy protein, consumption and Q & A. The event ended with networking over lunch and a wonderful discussion between the bloggers and panel experts.

My takeaways from the event:

  • Not all proteins have the amino acids required by the human body.
  • Soy protein is a high quality protein that supplies all essential amino acids to the body and in the right amount.
  • These proteins support the growth and development in children as well as adults.
  • Studies show that replacing a low-protein and high-fat snack with a soy protein snack improves overall diet quality of the consumer.
  • We feel fuller when we chew on a soy protein snack, which reduces the thoughtless eating.
  • Soy protein helps us in maintaining weight. It promotes weight loss and enhances the feeling of fulfillment at the same time.
  • Consuming 25 grams of soy protein in a day reduces the risk of heart diseases since this diet is low in saturated fat and cholesterol.
  • Proteins are the building blocks of the body and soy supplies the kind of protein required to build and repair the muscles.
  • Overall, as per the panel, soy protein promotes healthy living through out the life span of the regular consumer.

  • Milk
  • Eggs
  • Whey

This meeting was truly enlightening and I now feel more comfortable consuming the soy chunks and soy snacks. I plan to include some soy based foods in my diet and see the difference. What do you think about it?
