Did You Know: Soya Chunks contain 54.2 grams of protein, which exceeds the amount of protein found in meats, eggs, milk and wheat. It is said that the soy protein contains all the amino acids needed by the body and is an excellent replacement for meat-based proteins, which in addition also help in the growth of strong bones and teeth in children. Soy is high in fiber, which is known to benefit cholesterol levels, and can indirectly lower cholesterol by replacing fatty animal proteins in the diet.
