Product Description

Originating in Northern China thousands of years ago, soy is one of the first cultivated crops. Some information indicates that it was being grown as early as 11,000 B.C. and it has been an important food crop throughout Asia ever since. Soy was domesticated, selected and bred for specific traits resulting in a huge diversity of varieties and subsequent uses. Some of the classical foods that have resulted are tofu, edamame, tempeh, miso, natto, kinako, and tamari.

Sadly, in North America, although a huge commercial crop, soy is overwhelmingly grown in a mono-cultured farming model, using genetically altered seed (GMOs). The resulting harvests are then primarily used in animal feed or processed into component parts like protein meal and oil to be used in manufactured “food.”
