Soy has been part of the traditional Asian cuisine for centuries – and it is fast becoming an increasing part of the global diet. In Asian cuisine, soy is a key source of protein and it has been incorporated into local cuisine in many formats according to local preferences. However, in the Western world there is less familiarity with soy as a healthy part of the human diet and there are various concerns about the impact of soy components on health.
