Soy nuts

homemade soy nuts Soy nuts are a healthier snack option than many other snacks. There are two types: deep-fried soy nuts and dry roasted soynuts. They are made from whole soybeans which have been soaked in water and then baked or roasted until crisp and brown. Soy nuts are similar in texture and flavour to peanuts, but are healthier as they contain far less fat and more protein than peanuts. Soy nuts are available in different flavours, such as salt or paprika. You can even find soy nuts covered with a layer of chocolate or joghurt! Soy nuts contain most of the nutrients of the whole soybean and consuming soy nuts is an easy way to get enough isoflavones.

Dry roasted soy nuts are very popular in Japan, where they play a role in celebrations of ritual purification. During the Bean Throwing Ceremony soy nuts (beans of good fortune) are placed in and then tossed through an open window into air. Each person picks a number of soy nuts equal to his or her age in years.

Availability of soy nuts

Soy nuts can be found in natural foods stores and some grocery stores. In Europe they are not that popular and therefore more difficult to find. But you can order them from online shops or make them at home.

Soy nuts from Asda
Compared to tofu and soy milk, soy nuts are a very concentrated form of soy. A portion of 100 g soy nuts contains 45 g protein, covering almost your daily need of protein. In order to get a balanced diet, I wouldn't eat more than 50 g soy nuts daily, which may be difficult because they taste like more.

Soy nuts
I recently bought a packet of soya nuts, that are eaten as a snack. they are apparently dry roasted and crunchy but not hard. Can anyone advise me how to make them from the dried beans?.

Soy nuts
I bought a pound in a bulk store of the soy nuts yesterday because the price was less expensive than the regular nuts. I was delighted to see nutrional soy health benefits are still there after the roasting and with less calories. My whole family is enjoying them and now have a container of them on my desk at work. Everyone is munching!

Unfermented soy
Hi I was just reading a few articles that said if the soy nuts are made of unfermented soy this is actually detrimental to your health. Apparently the isoflavones become harder to process and they contain phytic acid which is an anti nutrient that binds to iron and other nutrients and prevents absorption. You may be aware of this already but if not I highly recommend reading up on the difference between unfermented and fermented soy products.. Also unless you have a weight problem the fats in nuts are quite good for you like with avocado which actually help the absorption of things like beta carotene. Hope that may be useful.
