CONTENT AND LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Soya has gained in popularity in recent decades because of the recognition that soya foods provide sustainably produced high quality protein, the consumption of which, may lead to health benefits independent of meeting nutrient needs. For example, soya protein modestly lowers blood cholesterol levels and promotes gains in muscle mass and strength in individuals engaged in resistance exercise similar to animal protein. And the consumption of soya foods during childhood and/or adolescence may decrease the likelihood of developing breast cancer later in life. Despite these benefits, animal studies have raised concerns that in some people, soya foods could cause untoward effects. However, clinical and observational studies are supportive of the safety of soya foods, a view consistent with the conclusions of numerous health organisations. This webinar will provide an overview of the current understanding of the health effects of soya including both proposed benefits and the more controversial issues.

CLEAR UNDERSTANDING OF:

  • The role of soya in breast cancer
  • Utility of soya protein for building muscle in response to resistance exercise training
  • Safety of consuming soya foods
  • The environmental aspects of soya
  • Effects of isoflavones on health outcomes

BE AWARE OF:

  • Differences between soya supplements and soya foods
  • Methods of assessing protein quality
  • Prevalence of soya allergy

BE ABLE TO:

  • Advise breast cancer patients and women at high risk of developing breast about whether they can safely consume soya foods
  • Assess the evidence in support of the cholesterol-lowering effects of soya protein and the role of soya foods in CVD 
  • Counsel patients about the effectiveness of soya foods at alleviating menopausal symptoms
