Beneficial and Avoidant Population of Soy Protein Isolates

soy isolate protein powder

Soy protein isolate is a protein powder obtained by immersing soybean meal (excluding oil and water-soluble non protein components) in an alkaline solution under low temperature conditions, then precipitating, washing, and drying to obtain a protein content greater than 90%. Its structure and properties basically replace pure soybean protein. There are nearly 20 types of amino acids in soy protein isolate, which contain essential amino acids for the human body. It is nutritious and cholesterol free, making it one of the few plant protein varieties that can replace animal protein.

Beneficiaries
The food that modern people need should be both appetizing and have no adverse effects, and rich in nutrients. Among the existing food groups, soybeans are the most abundant crop with the above conditions and abundant sources of raw materials. Beverages made from soy protein are known as “green milk” by nutritionists. Soybean protein has a significant reducing effect on people with high cholesterol. These soy proteins are essential nutrients for everyone, but their daily intake is mostly insufficient and must be supplemented by consuming protein powder, especially for certain special populations such as children, pregnant women, nursing mothers, and the elderly.

Avoid crowds
Excessive intake of soy protein isolate is also a burden on our body, as it can lead to some health problems. Therefore, some people should avoid consuming soy protein. Soy protein isolate refers to soy protein that has been removed from fats, soluble and insoluble carbohydrates in soybeans. People with gout, liver disease, and kidney disease should avoid consuming it as much as possible.

1. Gout population: Due to the high content of purines in soy protein isolate, it is necessary to avoid consuming soy protein isolate as much as possible for gout population, so as not to cause purine substances to enter the human body and not be fully metabolized, thereby transforming into uric acid and depositing in the body in the form of uric acid crystals, further exacerbating the condition of gout;

2. People with liver diseases, including hepatitis, cirrhosis, hepatic encephalopathy, etc. Due to the fact that soy protein isolate needs to be excreted or synthesized by the liver, it is necessary to avoid consuming soy protein isolate as much as possible for those with poor liver function to avoid increasing the burden on the liver and further exacerbating the patient’s condition;

3. Kidney disease population: including nephrotic syndrome, nephritis, etc. If excessive intake of exogenous proteins can aggravate the permeability of the renal basement membrane, leading to protein overload nephropathy in the kidneys, which exacerbates kidney disease and is not conducive to the recovery of existing kidney diseases. Therefore, people with kidney disease need to pay attention to avoiding consuming soy protein isolate as much as possible.

    In addition, the normal population also needs to pay attention to consuming soy protein isolate appropriately to avoid excessive consumption that increases the burden on the gastrointestinal tract, leading to digestive discomfort symptoms such as abdominal pain, bloating, and nausea, which can have adverse effects on physical health.
