Power And Joy Of Soya

Soy milk is made by soaking soybeans, grinding them with water, The fluid which results after straining and cooked is called soy milk. Soybeans contain rich protein, vitamins A, B1, B2, and other mineral elements. Research has shown potential health benefits of soy in preventing breast cancer and the growth of prostate tumors, and fighting coronary heart disease, osteoporosis,diabetes, promoting growth, healing and vitality. It is also thought to alleviate symptoms of menopause and to promote eye health.

After making tofu or soya milk, the solid residue which remain in the filter sack called okara (pronounced oh-KAR-uh) or soy pulp. Okara, low in fat, high in dietary fiber, along with protein, calcium, iron, and riboflavin, were recognized to be helpful in controlling diabetes, reducing blood sugar and cholesterol, adding in digestion and circulation, protecting the bones, and reducing cancer risk. If you make soyamilk by machine, the okara will be cooked during the process. Otherwise, I would suggest to steam or toast the raw okara for 20 minutes before using.
