Delicious, Nutritious Soyfoods of 2013

To celebrate Soyfoods Month this April, ASA/WISHH salutes its partners in developing countries for their introductions of exciting new African and Hispanic foods made with soy protein ingredients. Below you can find some of the great examples of these new delicious, nutritious soyfoods that were launched.


Sesaco SoySip
SoySip is a combination of US value added Soy and Uganda full fat Soy. This product requires only hot water. Sugar and ginger are in the packet that gives you a quick, hot drink—much like a cup of coffee. This product is a convenient and affordable protein option.

As a way that SESACO is expanding the marketplace with soy, the public is being served Soymeat samosa as a breakfast accompaniment. Also, chapati makers have started enhancing their products with soy —using it for side dishes.
