In sports nutrition,
the protein source of choice has been whey protein. Although soy protein
has taken a distant second in the past, being reserved only for the
vegetarian, it is fast becoming a popular protein choice. When presented
with a clear picture of soy protein and its features and benefits, it
is apparent why soy is gaining recognition. Soy protein is derived from
soybeans, which have a higher protein content than any other legume.
Approximately 38% of the soy bean is protein, however, when the beans
are highly refined the soy is isolated. Isolated soy is the most concentrated
source of soy protein and yields more than 90% protein. Soy proteins
provide all the essential amino acids needed to fulfill human nutritional
requirements for growth, maintenance, and physical stress. This amino
acid pattern is among the most complete of all proteins.
With a Protein Digestibility
Corrected Amino Acid Score of 1, the highest rating for protein quality
according to the FDA, soy is comparable in quality to animal proteins
such as whey, egg, and milk. In fact, soy protein contains more than
twice the amount of the amino acid glutamine than whey protein. In addition,
soy protein isolate contains high concentrations of naturally occurring
isoflavones. Isoflavones are components of soy that have been shown
to demonstrate cholesterol lowering properties.
