- Why do so many of the products contain SOYA?
At Naturli’, we always use good high quality ingredients. Soya 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, Naturli’ Minced, made from peas rather than soya.
- I have heard that some soya beans contain oestrogen. Is this the case with your soya beans?
This answer is going to have to be a little bit technical! Soya 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 soya beans, they will also be in our soya products. There are many myths, theories and claims about the potential good and bad effects of soya.
Please refer to dietitians and doctors that have published articles published with well-documented sources.
- How is soya grown for your products?
The soya beans for Naturli’ Minced are grown in North America.
- Are any areas of the rainforest cleared to create areas for growing soya beans?
No areas of the rainforest are cleared to grow the soya beans.
- Does your soya contain GMO?
Naturli' is stringent when it comes to high-quality ingredients that do not contain any GMO and that have not been grown in any areas that have been cleared from the rainforest. We ensure this by entering into direct contracts with selected farmers with GMO free crops.
