Additional Information:
Soya beans and soy beans are exactly the same and the names are used interchangeably according to fashion, preference or habit. The many subsequent products, such as soya/soy sauce, are also exactly the same, whichever spelling is used.

Shoyu is the Japanese word for the same vegetable and its products – shoyu sauce is soya/ soy sauce.

The vital claim of the soya bean is that it is the only vegetable product that has all the protein content of meat, eggs or milk products and thus it’s essential to the diet of vegetarians and vegans. The beans themselves are bland and generally unappealing as they never quite develop the rich, meaty textures that other beans do with long cooking. Thus mature soya beans are used to make tofu, which is a soft or firm curd made from the milky liquid obtained by boiling and pressing soya beans and which retain the full protein content.

Soya beans are the basis of many recognised and popular products such as soya sauce, tofu, miso and soya milk but the basic soya bean is just fine eaten the way it is. Soya beans are an excellent source of protein which is perfect if you prefer not to eat meat or dairy products. These beans contain virtually no saturated fat which makes them a perfect candidate for a low calorie, healthy, balanced diet.

How to cook the Soya Bean
It is recommended that you pre-soak soy beans the night before, to help them soften. This will also shorten cooking time.

Add to boiling water and leave them bubbling for 1 hour. (Top up water if it gets low).
Skim off any skin that may form on the surface. Next, either: Lower the temperature and simmer for up to 3 hours. OR If you have a ready pressure cooker, lower in and cook for 20 – 25 minutes. Once the beans are soft, stir them around in the water. This loosens the husks, allowing you to skim these off the surface. (this is optional. The husks are very fibrous and aren’t that easy to digest).
Drain & serve. (If you want, you could save the water. This makes a healthy base that could be used for soups, stews and other sauces).

Storage Advice:
Dried beans last for years, However the older they are the longer they will take to cook. Canned beans last for years and fresh beans last about a week.

You can help dried and canned beans stay fresh longer by storing them in a cool, dark place at a temperature under 75 degrees Fahrenheit.

Fresh beans are best kept in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

Once cooked, beans should be stored in a tightly closed container to keep out moisture and other contaminants and then placed in the fridge. Always place leftover product into a proper airtight container before storing in the fridge. For a long-term option, you can freeze your beans while preserving their taste if you use a freezer safe container.

Some benefits of proper food storage include eating healthier, cutting food costs and helping the environment by avoiding waste.
