Soybean can be processed in three ways, namely soy protein isolates (90% protein), soy protein concentrates (70% protein), and soy flour (50% protein). Soy protein ingredients are key ingredients in the meat processing industry and also for infant formulas. They are equipped with a complete amino acid profile and are used variously as a stabilizer, emulsifier, tenderizer, binder, gel, and thickener in food and beverage processing.
