Organic Soy Flour
Organic soy flour is perfect for baking. Made from stone-ground organic soy beans, soy flour is packed with fiber and protein.
Uses for Soy Flour
Soy flour is a terrific gluten-free thickener substitute in soups and sauces. Soy flour’s high protein content means that it can absorb large amounts of liquid as the silky powder dissolves into a smooth and creamy final product. This finely-ground flour has a mild bean-y flavor that fades into the background when mixed with other flours and spices.
For an organic vegetarian egg substitute, mix one heaping tablespoon of soy flour with one teaspoon of water. You will barely be able to tell that your baked goods don’t contain any eggs. You can also use soy flour to bread veggies and meats before frying for a crisp crust. Soy flour’s ability to soak up liquids turns it into a hearty crust when fried.
Soy flour makes baked goods lighter and rise higher. Substitute 1/4 soy flour in pizza dough and 1/3 soy flour in cookies, banana bread, and cakes for a lighter and crisper dough. Also, try mixing soy flour in homemade wheat sandwich bread. It adds nutritional content without a noticeable change in flavor. Soy flour browns faster than other flours so, when you’re baking with it, reduce the temperature by 25 degrees Fahrenheit.
Tips: There are about 4 cups of soy flour per pound. Refrigerate or freeze soy flour after opening.
Soy Flour Health Bits and Bites
High Protein Content: Soy flour is made up of a whopping 52% of protein. In 1999, the FDA found that an increase in consumption of soy protein decreases cholesterol, which leads to a lower risk of coronary heart disease. Protein also rebuilds muscle and other bodily tissues.
Aids the Absorption of Calcium: Soy flour contains magnesium and boron, two minerals that increase the effectiveness of calcium in your body. An increased level of calcium in your body leads to stronger bones and may prevent calcium-related illnesses in the future such as osteoporosis.
Fiber Rich to Help Digestion and Weight Loss:With 8% of the recommended value of fiber per serving, the fiber in soy flour helps your body maintain a healthy digestive system and clear out toxins from your body quickly. And, since fiber is more difficult for your body to digest, it keeps you fuller longer which is a bonus if you’re trying to lose weight.
Ratings & Reviews
I ordered it from you because the local coop i used to buy it from shut down. I used to use the flour to make soy milk. Using exactly the same blender, recipe etc your flour produces a seriously bitter taste. Im on the second of the packets i ordered from you and its the same problem. I have to wonder if thats because its a stale batch -- but the packaging has no sell by dates on it.Amar, Cambridge, MA
