There is a new soy based food bar on the market.  Perhaps you’ve seen it…touting many benefits.

Well, their claims are only part of the story.  My commentary below is in bold.

Rich in bone-building calcium, zinc, magnesium and iron.

High levels of phytic acid in soy reduce assimilation of calcium, magnesium, copper, iron and zinc.

Only plant-based protein with all the essential amino acid.

Trypsin inhibitors in soy interfere with protein digestion and may cause pancreatic disorders. In test animals soy containing trypsin inhibitors caused stunted growth.

Contains isoflavones, which have antioxidant properties. 

Isoflavones disrupt endocrine function and have the potential to cause infertility and to promote breast cancer in adult women.

This marketing hype is only part of the story for more info see the links below.
