The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is authorizing the use, on food labels and in food labeling, of health claims on the association between soy protein and reduced risk of coronary heart disease. The agency has concluded that soy protein included in a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of CHD by lowering blood cholesterol levels. The final rule published in the Federal Register.
The FDA recommends that consumers incorporate four servings of at least 6.25 grams of soy protein into their daily diet a total of at least 25 grams of soy protein each day. In order to claim the healthy effects of soy, a product must meet the following criteria:
- 6.25 grams soy protein or more
- Low fat (less than 3 grams)
- Low saturated fat (less than 1 gram)
- Low cholesterol (less than 20 mg.)
- Foods made with the whole soybean may also qualify for the health claim if they contain no fat in addition to that present in the whole soybean . These would include soy foods such as: tofu, soymilk, soy-based burgers, tempeh, and soy nuts.
