Other characteristics and properties of soybean

Soy is a food of great value that is getting increasingly successful in power supply not only vegetarians but to all people that care for their health. There are also many supplements on the market from soybean sources.
The soybean has a similar taste to beans and can be eaten as a vegetable.

gens.
