Soya. Do you know what he looks like?

The soybean is undisputedly an extraordinary crop. It contains complex proteins, with a content of up to 35%. This is the common value; we use soy with a protein content of 40-43% for our tofu production.

Soybeans have established their position on the world market primarily as an oilseed, a part of compound feed and also as a very important vegetable source of protein.

Soy products are becoming increasingly popular. Traditional (tofu, tempeh, soy sauces, miso, natto, etc.) and modern (soy drinks, yoghurts, spreads, smoked soy, etc.).

What do soybeans look like?

Soy is a legume. Soybeans grow in hairy, green pods, usually with two to three round beans in one pod. The plant is bushy, growing up to waist height. It has little competitive ability and multiplies exclusively through seeds.

Most soybeans are harvested only when they are ripe or dry. At this stage they are yellow, or brown or black in some varieties. In Asian countries, soybeans are often harvested at 75% ripeness when they are already grown but still green.

Unfortunately, in recent years people began genetically modifying soybeans and adding them in various forms to foods where you would not expect it.

However, Veto Eco uses only non-genetically modified soya in its production.

Some people, especially children, may experience soy allergy. However, it’s not a significant allergen and allergies usually subside in children by the time they are 7 years of age.
