This project is an SIU-industry joint project that will take a team approach to identifying anti-obesity and anti-diabetic soybean ingredients using a host of markers. The project has the potential to generate new and improved uses for soybeans and possibly increase the value of soy as a raw material for the expanding health and medical foods industry. In addition, identifying the health benefits of soy ingredients could have potential socioeconomic impacts, such as increasing the overall health and general quality of life for people by preventing and reducing the disease conditions associated with obesity and diabetes.
This project is funded by Illinois Soybean Board
