The effects of soy-protein consumption with and without soy fiber on plasma lipids in 26 mildly hypercholesterolemic men were studied. Four, 4-wk dietary treatments included 50 g protein and 20 g dietary fiber from soy flour (SF), isolated soy protein/soy cotyledon fiber (ISP/SCF), ISP/cellulose (ISP/C), or nonfat dry milk/C (NFDM/C) in conjunction with a(More)
Twenty-one mildly hypercholesterolemic men consumed a diet that was low in fat (< 30% of energy) and cholesterol (300 mg/d) and were given muffins containing 25 g protein + 20 g dietary fiber daily from either isolated soybean protein + soybean cotyledon fiber, isolated soybean protein + cellulose, casein + soybean cotyledon fiber or casein + cellulose.
