The impact of the consumption of soy foods on a range of diet and health issues are discussed, including protein quality and growth promoting effects of soy protein, allergies in children, hypocholesterolemic effects of soy protein and soy fiber, effects of soy products upon glucose tolerance, and the bioavailability of zinc and iron from soy foods.
