Soybean (Soja hispida), in Britain also Soya Bean, is a species of legume, and annual plant in the Pea family (Fabaceae), native to East Asia, widely grown for its edible bean which has numerous uses. The plant is classed as a oilseed rather than a pulse by the UN Food and Agricultural Organization(FAO).

Soybean varies in growth and habit. The height of the plant varies from less than 0.2 – 2.0 m (0.66-6.56ft). The pods, stems, and leaves are covered with fine brown or gray hairs. The leaves are trifoliolate, having three to four leaflets per leaf, and the leaflets are 6 – 15 cm (2.5–6in) long and 2 – 7 cm (0.75–2.75in) broad. The leaves fall before the seeds are mature. The inconspicuous, self-fertile flowers are borne in the axil of the leaf and are white, pink or purple. The fruit is a hairy pod that grows in clusters of three to five, each pod is 3 – 8 cm long (1–3in) and usually contains two to four (rarely more) seeds 5 – 11 mm (0.25-0.45in) in diameter.

Remarkably, seeds such as Soybeans containing very high levels of protein can undergo desiccation, yet survive and revive after water absorption.

Fat-free (defatted) Soybean meal is a significant and cheap source of protein (39%) for animal feeds and many prepackaged meals; Soybean vegetable oil (17%) is another product; textured vegetable protein (TVP) are ingredients in many meat and dairy analogues. Soybeans produce significantly more protein per acre than most other uses of land. Traditional non-fermented food uses of Soybean includes Soy milk, and from the latter tofu and tofu skin. Fermented foods include Soy sauce, fermented bean paste, natto, and tempeh, among others. The oil is also used in many industrial applications.

The bio-active ingredients include many polyunsaturated fatty acids (lowers cholesterol levels), linoleic acid, oleic acid and linolenic acid. It also contains lecithin, glycerin, phosphoric acid and choline. Choline is a integral component of the cell membrane and part of the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Lecithin is part of the metabolism of the nervous system; if you feel tired and lack focus, a small dose of lecithin will improve your performance. Soybean oil is also rich in vitamin E and phytoestrogens. The most important ones, genistein and daidzeine, are subject of ongoing scientific research; it is believed that they are instrumental in reducing heart disease and cornoary thrombosis.

History: Soybeans were introduced to America in 1765 by Samuel Bowen, a former East India Companysailor who had visited China, in conjunction with James Flint, the first Englishman legally permitted by the Chinese authorities to learn Chinese. Bowen grew Soy near Savannah, Georgia, possibly using funds from Flint, and even made Soy sauce for sale to England.

Soy took on a very important role in the United States after World War I. During the Great Depression, the drought-stricken (Dust Bowl) regions of the United States were able to use Soy to regenerate their soil because of its nitrogen-fixing properties. Farms were increasing production to meet with government demands, and Henry Ford was a great leader of the Soybean industry.

In 1932–33, the Ford Motor Company spent approximately $1,250,000 on Soybean research. By 1935, every Ford car had Soy involved in its manufacture. For example, Soybean oil was used topaint the automobiles, as well as fluid for shock absorbers. Ford's involvement with the Soybean opened many doors for agriculture and industry to be linked more strongly than ever before.
