I tried a search on this topic first, but after a while decided to post. I apologize if this topic has been beaten to death.
I have heard contrary opinions and "facts" on soy protein, protein digestion, and I am interested specifically in soy pasta. Here is the nutritional info on a specific brand:
* Effective carb count: 10 grams per serving
* 28g of protein per serving
* 80% more protein than regular pasta
* 70% more fiber than regular pasta
* 70% more iron than regular pasta
* 20% lower calories than regular pasta
Servings per package— 6 • Serving Size—3/4 cups dry (56g)
* Calories 160
* Calories from Fat 10
* Total Fat 1 g
* Saturated Fat 0g
* Cholesterol 0mg
* Sodium 40mg
* Total Carbohydrates 18g*
* Dietary Fiber 8g*
* Sugars 3g
* Protein 28g
Defatted soy flour, pasteurized egg white, rice flour, wheat gluten, isolated soy proteins.
*Total carbs = 18g minus 8g of fiber, equalling Net Impact Carbs of 10g. per serving.
I really want to build, and if I can add this to chicken breast or tuna, it would really help boost my protein intake. But I want it to be effective.

Ive tried that stuff before, and to be honest it tastes like pure sh1t! Its like cardboard. Your better off going with a whole wheat pasta, and try adding protein in other ways.

I know what you mean. I've actually found ways to season it quite well.
I'm more concerned with it's effectiveness in providing digestible proteins.
The reason I ask is because of something I've read:
...the soybean contains large quantities of natural toxins or "antinutrients". First among them are potent enzyme inhibitors that block the action of trypsin and other enzymes needed for protein digestion.
I do not know if this is true or not. I do not want to waste time eating something that won't provide the protein I'm looking for.

Well, even a broken clock is correct twice a day. There are a number of reasons not to consume soy, but this guy you're quoting is a kook. He doesn't believe in vaccines either. I wouldn't worry about "antinutrients."

My ex-GF worships that guy! I've found a few interesting things on his site before, but everytime I read something that seems to make sense, I can't help but think "this guys off the deep end, believe nothing". Still, I'd hate to through the good out with the bad, but it's often a tough judgement callOriginally Posted by yeahright

That's why I prefaced my comment by saying "even a broken clock is correct twice a day." This guy is an idiot, but it doesn't mean that everything he says is wrong.Originally Posted by Jason_L
