Soyabean protein can prevent heart disease

Written by: Staff

Dewas, MP, June 4 (UNI) Consumption of soyabean protein can help Indians control heart disease as it reduces the ailment by 20 to 30 per cent.

''Every year, 25 lakh people in the world are moving towards death due to heart-related diseases,'' American Soyabean Association advisor Kavita Reddy said while addressing a seminar on advantages of soyabean here recently.

''The number of heart disease patients are increasing in India because of lack of knowledge of proper eating habits,'' she said, adding that soyabean protein developed immunity against heart diseases, cancer and other diseases.

Dr Reddy said soya protein contained 40 per cent high-quality proteins, which helped in reducing heart diseases by 20 to 30 per cent. Providing soyamilk to children was immensely beneficial.

She said increase in soyabean consumption had helped in controlling heart diseases in the US. However, less consumption of soyabean protein and improper eating habits had increased the number of heart patients in the country.

Soyabean Processors Association of India's Soya Products Promotion Committee convenor Girish Matlani said the demand for soya products in India was increasing.

He suggested that intake of soyabean protein could be increased by consuming soyamilk, soya 'paneer' and other soya products.

He added that a person must consume at least 25 grams of soyabean everyday.
