well to say that "it takes as little as 10 minutes" is misleading since the beans would certainly NOT be edible in 10 minutes.
My problem with soy is in how it is presented to us as "food". Soy is formulated as cheap protein to feed the masses, period. And when I say "cheap" I'm talking about the bean itself, the raw material from which to concoct endless non-meat products. I'm sure that the profit margin on these products is huge.
I don't hear of people enjoying a dish of soybeans and rice, from what I've read, the bean is bitter. It HAS to be processed to make it edible.
And therein lies the problem, IMO. I stay away from processed foods and I think that I can safely say that other CZers try to do the same. I feel very blessed that I can choose:)
Good info in this book about how soy is processed:
Traditional and non-traditional foods By Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, R. Ferrando ~1981 (yeah I know it's old but it's good)
processing of soy info starts on page 101, "industrial processing of non-traditional foods".
