These days most are looking for ways to improve their overall health, whether it’s exercising more, eating less, or looking for healthier or more natural food choices.
In Iowa, we are surrounded by fields and fields of soybeans, yet some of us have not tried very many soyfoods such as soymilk, tofu, or other foods containing soy ingredients.
Scott Desing, vice president of sales and marketing of Devansoy, a supplier of soy ingredients, headquartered in Carroll, explains people may turn to soyfoods for various reasons. The reasons can be a “want” or a “need.” A “want” would be someone practicing veganism or looking to improve personal health. An example of a “need” would be lactose intolerance or an allergy to milk.
