Hi All, As there has been so much negativity around soy products, I decided I'd look up if all soy products are bad or just some. It seems the meat substitutes are made from soy protein isolate which is quite different from the natural state of the soy bean. I know this as I worked as a nutritionist for a top dog food company and we used it in one of our products for dogs with allergies, the soy had been hydrolysed and therefore broken down into very small particles called daltons so it didnt have the same affect. All dogs with allergies or intolerances to soy were ok on this product so there must be some truth that soy protein isolate is much better for us, it's even used in babymilk formulas. This protein when as soy protein isolate was far more digestible than any other animal protein from what I remember and we used it for dogs and cats with digestive problems that worked v well. I think it's more a case that it's processed and contains lots of additives such as mdg etc when its in a meat substitute? What do you think?
