"Soy is more than 'the food of the year' as Jack Challem and his coauthors demonstrate in this balanced, well-researched book."
--Nan Kathryn Fuchs, Ph.D., Editor, Women's Health Letter
Over a billion people worldwide eat soy foods each day. Once relegated to the hardcore health-food menu, soy has gone mainstream and is used in everything from hearty main dishes to delicate desserts. And scientific evidence shows that the components in soy help protect against major health problems, including cancer, osteoporosis, heart disease, and diabetes.
Now The Soy Sensation explains how to forget your tofu fears and replace many of the high-fat, high-cholesterol foods in your diet with delicious soy substitutes. Written by three nutrition experts, this celebration of soy includes a selection of savory recipes ranging from chili to chocolate pudding. The authors also explore research pointing toward soy's positive health benefits, including reduced hot flashes, increased bone density, lower cholesterol levels, a slowed aging process, and a decreased likelihood of breast or prostate cancer.
