Tong T. Song, S. Hendrich and P.A. Murphy, J.Agric. Food Chem., 47,1607-1610, 1999. In most soy foods, genistein and daidzein account for about 80 – 90% of total isoflavones. In soy germ, the major isoflavones present are daidzein (45-60%) and glycitein (35-45%). In studies, the estrogenic activities of genistein and daidzein were reported to be […]
and in SoyLife
it is rich in isoflavones plus a myriad of natural soy micronutrients (shown in the graph below). SoyLife 40% can therefore be seen as a multicomponent ingredient
Soy germ (hypocotyl) is only 1-2% of the soy bean by weight Soy germ contains over 40 different soy phytonutrients Scientists observe that bio-availability and effectiveness of isoflavones may be enhanced by other phytonutrients naturally present in soy = Soy Matrix
Soy germ contains the highest natural level of isoflavones combined with more than 40 other phytonutrients.
Daidzein: 50-70%, Genistein: 10-20%, Gycitein: 30-40%, which are present in the glycoside form.
Isoflavones are natural phyto-estrogens; which have an estrogens-like activity resulting in hormone balancing effects.Isoflavones are natural phyto-estrogens; which have an estrogens-like activity resulting in hormone balancing effects.
SoyLife isoflavones derive from soy germ hypocotyl. Therefore SoyLife® contains beside the isoflavones over 40 phytonutrients. They have a higher content in daidzein than in the beans. For most SoyLife products we ensure the phytonutrients content because of our gentle manufacturing process.
