    Soy Protein Isolate

    Anyone else taking Honeyville Soy Protein Isolate? A 4lb bag has 24g of protein per oz. Has anyone had personal experience with Soy Protein Isolate?

    I can tell you that soy is def not optimal due to the amino acid profile. Whey is far better
    Anything said by exerciseordie is for educational purposes only! PERIOD!!!! Don't do illegal shit.

    Why not take the money you would spend on soy and buy some real food. Like beef. It has a superior amino acid profile and ZINC which you may be deficient in. Good luck.

    I plan on eating both, but was interested supplementing a small portion (about 1/4 to 1/3) of my daily protein needs. Soy protein seems to be the least expensive and very affordable. It would be 1,555 grams of protein for $24.

    Soy protein is cheap because its awful. Its also not a particularly good choice for males. Its a phyto-estrogen. Just do some research. Beef, chicken, fish, and eggs are great and supplement with whey or a whey egg protein blend. All of those give more bang for the buck than soy and taste better.

    Everything I've read places soy protein on the bottom end of protein choices. There are several better sources as many listed above.

    No. Aside from the poor amino acid profile, soy contains trypsin inhibitors which block protein degrading enzymes. If you don;t fully digest protein, you don't absorb it. There was a study a while back that showed eating soy even lowers the bioavailability of other protein sources you consume with it because they don't get broken down.

    Here's a good rundown from John Kiefer on soy.

    Not True

    Soy is higher in...

    1) Glutamine

    2) Branch Chain Amino Acids (Leucine/Isoluecine/Valine

    3) Argenine
