What is Soy Replacement?
Soy, also known as soybean, is a legume and an important source of nutrients in the human diet. It’s products are widely used in baked goods for:
- Improving nutritional value
- Providing a convenient alternative for eliminating gluten from diets targeting celiacs
- Replacing eggs
However due rising soy allergies, food producers are looking for soy replacement solutions. Chickpeas, lentils, lupine, sorghum, broad beans and many other legumes can replace soy in many formulations. Some of these are rich in high-quality protein and fiber and contain low levels of fat compared to soy.
