How does soy fit into the new Dietary Guidelines?
Many soyfoods are nutrient dense. Increasing the intake of nutrient dense foods allows one to easily decrease added sugars, sodium and solid fat in the diet. Soy can be used as a lower fat, high protein alternative. Many soy products are good sources of fiber, iron, calcium, and potassium (ADA, 2003).
