Nutrition Highlights

A serving of soy tempeh is an excellent source of dietary fiber and soy protein. It is also a good source of folic acid, potassium, and iron. Important bio-active components called isoflavones and saponins, found naturally in soybeans, are being studied in relationship to relief of menopause symptoms, such as hot flashes, maintaining healthy bones, and preventing prostate and breast cancers.
Tempeh is a healthy, high-quality protein source that contains all essential amino acids for growth. Soy protein is equal in quality to meat, milk and egg protein, and comes without saturated fat and cholesterol.
In addition to the quality of soy protein, scientists have found that soy protein may help reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering blood cholesterol and increasing the flexibility of blood vessels. The FDA has approved a health claim stating that 25 grams of soy protein in a daily diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol can help reduce total and LDL cholesterol that is moderately high to high.
