Ankeny, Iowa, April 3, 2024—National Soy Foods Month in April is the perfect time to refresh your enthusiasm for plant-centric eating by downloading the new Soy Foods Guide. The free guide is available on The Soyfoods Council website at www.thesoyfoodscouncil.com. In it, you’ll find recipes, new research, cooking applications and nutrition benefits of various soyfoods, and information about the soybean farmers who grow the sustainable soy you eat.


Recipes in the illustrated Soy Foods Guide demonstrate why soy is a star in the plant protein world. There’s even a shopping guide for finding soy ingredients and products in your local grocery store. If you want to compare the calories, protein, carbs, fat and fiber in your favorite soyfoods, check out the guide’s composition chart. 


Food professionals, social media influencers and culinary students have contributed recipes. Inspired soy desserts include the Mixed Berry Delight featuring tofu. To make it, cook frozen mixed berries, cornstarch and sugar until the mixture thickens. Blend firm tofu and cream cheese until smooth, then fold in whipped topping. Fold in the cooled berry mixture. Press a mixture of graham crackers and melted margarine into a  9”x13” pan, top with the tofu/berry blend and chill before serving. Top with fresh berries if desired.

About soyfoods and sustainability: Sustainability is a soy tradition. U. S. soybean farmers have been practicing sustainable agriculture methods for decades. Currently, 95% of U.S. soy growers are committed to sustainable farming practices and partner with the USDA to implement conservation programs. Soyfoods may play a significant role as a source of protein that minimally contributes to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in comparison to other protein sources.

About the Soyfoods Council: The Soyfoods Council is a non-profit organization, created and funded by Iowa soybean farmers, providing a complete resource to increase awareness of soyfoods, educate and inform media, healthcare professionals, consumers and the retail and foodservice markets about the many benefits of Soyfoods.
