A soybean textured protein induced a 14% decrease of plasma-cholesterol levels after two weeks and 21% after three when substituted for animal proteins in a group of 20 patients with type-II hyperlipoproteinaemia. Comparison of soybean diet with a standard low-lipid diet in the same patients, according to a cross-over protocol, indicated that this hypocholesterolaemic effect was not due to differences in the lipid composition of the two diets. The hypothesis that a soy protein has a… CONTINUE READING
