Description

Organic Soya Beans – try making your own tofu.

Organic Soya Beans are well known as a great meat substitute for vegetarian and vegan diets due to their high protein content and unique amino acid profile.  They are best slow cooked with a range of herbs and spices to make soups and stews.  If you like being creative you can make your own soya milk or tofu.

These little creamy coloured beans originated in Asia where they have been eaten in various forms for thousands of years.  They are a popular choice because they contain isoflavones (antioxidant polyphenols) and saponins which are beneficial plant compounds.

These popular protein rich beans are particularly nutritious and one 70g serving is a source of Riboflavin (B2), Folate, Vitamin K, Magnesium, Potassium, Manganese, Iron & Copper.

Origin: China

Allergen Information: Packed on premises that handle gluten, tree nuts, sesame, peanuts.
