- Why do so many of the products contain SOY?
At Naturli’, we always use good high quality ingredients. Soy bean is in many ways a good ingredient, since it can give a good texture to the product and it is filling. But of course, we are developing other products that do not contain soya. For example, some of our Meatfree products are made from peas rather than soy.
- I have heard that some soy beans contain oestrogen. Is this the case with your soya beans?
This answer is going to have to be a little bit technical! Soy beans contain natural isoflavones, which are plant hormones that are up to a degree, similar to oestrogen. However, they are much weaker than oestrogen.
Because isoflavones occur naturally in soy beans, they will also be in our soy products. There are many myths, theories and claims about the potential good and bad effects of soy.
Please refer to dietitians and doctors that have published articles published with well-documented sources.
- Are any areas of the rainforest cleared to create areas for growing soy beans?
No areas of the rainforest are cleared to grow the soy beans.
