The National Soy Ink Information Center

The National Soy Ink Information Center was established in 1993 by the Iowa Soybean Association (ISA) and was located in the Iowa Soybean Association office in Urbandale, Iowa and was fully funded by US soybean producers. This center maintained relationships with soy ink manufacturers and printers; advises on research needed for product developments; responds to trade media inquiries; leads soy ink and environmental seminars.
The centre developed and promoted the use of SoySeal trademark on printed pieces as a way to show readers that the ink was made from renewable resources and supported American farmers. The SoySeal trademark is used to identify industrial products made with a minimum quantity (depends on formulation) of soybean oil, but other vegetable oils may also be present.

Closure of The National Soy Ink Information Center

Due to the success of soy ink, The National Soy Ink Information Center was closed in 2005. There was we feeling there is no longer a need to continue work promoting soy ink and its acceptance through the National Soy Ink Information Centre. Iowa soybean farmers believed in soy ink and committed many resources to promoting its usage. The Iowa Soybean Association is now promoting other uses and building new markets for soybeans. Soy ink is now generally accepted and used worldwide.



I wanted to know if you had soy ink for laser printers (use temporary tattoos) and the cost.
I am waiting for a response.
Best regards.

Ink for Temporary Tattoo

I have been looking for information on printing temporary tattoos which are safe for skin. Seeing companies in the US which are already doing this claim that are using soy ink (vegetable based) for printing the tattoos. I have been searching for this technology and I have had no luck so far. I recently found out that xerox has come up with a solid ink technology which is non toxic. However, I would like to know about the soy ink and if its available for printers. It would be very helpful if you help me in this regard.
Thank you
Looking forward for your response.

I developed a soy allergy..

It's sad actually..
Hi, I am writing with hopes that someone can please lead me to further information on how to avoid soy. It is in many products and because I have oral allergy syndrome it makes me physically irritate. I get itchy, headaches, hives, lightheaded, dizzy, confused, and upset with life in every aspect of it. It's the beginning of a crisis I suppose because the percentage of people developing a soy allergy is going up. Is there a soy free soy substitute? This sounds silly but it's actually killing me and there's no allergy shot for it yet (that is FDA approvaapproved).
