Recommended Posts

I'm enjoying a cup of delicious Miso soup right now, and thought I'd start a thread as an homage to this truly divine food.

I am a miso supporter. Can I have some help clearing something up?

 

I bought some tempeh from the health food store last week. I started talking to the cashier about fermented soy. She said it is best to avoid all soy, especially for men.

 

 

I told her that fermented soy is different. It was my belief that fermented soy did not contain the substance that mimics estrogen. She said it does to her knowledge.

 

Well, I looked it up. It seems that it does contain the same phytoestrogens.

 

 

Does this mean I should avoid foods like miso and tempeh?

 

 

Is this bad information? If so, what exactly is the difference between soy and fermented soy products like miso and tempeh?

Fermentation gets rid of the phytic acid in soy, which inhibits mineral absorption, but does not get rid of the phytoestrogens.

So fermented soy (miso, tamari, tempeh) are okay for menopausal females (who MAYBE could use the estrogen) but soy is not good for babies (soy formula) or guys period. However, the amount you'd get in tamari and miso is probably not an issue.

 

Unfortunately, there are other serious problems over and above mineral absorption and phytoestrogens.
