So what's the difference between Soya Powder & Soy Flour?
Soy flour is made by grinding whole dry soybeans into flour in the same way wheat
kernels are ground into flour. Soy flour often contains considerable hull

and it may also be used in baking recipes.

because it's made from good
quality soybeans by washing the beans in water and then
steam cooking at a maximum
temperature of 215°F. The hulls are removed to avoid grittiness and because they are
not a good source of nutrients anyway. The final step is grinding into a fine powder.

of healthy protein.

Powder and Protein Isolate can be harder to locate, but can be ordered online from
most of the lowcarb specialty shops in our Shopping
