Where do you buy soybeans?

Quote  |  Reply

I've been reading about soybeans, and they really are a super-food!

I'm interested. Where do you buy soybeans? How do you buy them: dried, frozen, canned, or fresh? Are they expensive? Do they come just as beans, or in their pod plant things? Tell me all about your soybeans! :)

I was pretty sure they didn't carry them in regular stores like Albertsons or Publix, but I could be wrong... I really wish they carried them. ):

try asian supermarkets or chinatown.

We buy tonnes of dried soy beans, mung beans, red (mung?) beans, black beans, raw peanuts etc from chinatown. They all come deshelled. The soy beans are white/cream coloured.

He would soak it in water overnight with raw peanuts, and season with spices + ginger and steam it as a topping for rice.

you can buy frozen edamame in the pod at most stores (they are not matured soy beans (i believe)-- so green colour). Superstore also carries edameme that is de-shelled. I use them instead of peas in my cooking.

Not sure about canned or fresh soy beans tho.

Oh! you can also get roasted soybeans. Watch out tho, some look roasted but are actually oily (deep fried i think) and coated with salted.

All of these above factors lead to a build up of acidic toxins that cause

the loss of glutathione as a non-nutritive buffer leading to cellular aging,

disease and finally death.

Why is Glutathione Essential to Health?

Glutathione's three major roles in the body are summarized by the letters


- Anti-oxidant

- Blood Booster

- Cell Detoxifier

These are the three critical processes driven by glutathione.

The Master Antioxidant

Over the past thirty years, researchers have explored the role of

antioxidants in good health as well as the treatment and prevention of

diseases involving oxidation or fermentation by metabolic acids.

Well known and widely used antioxidants such as vitamin A, vitamin E and

selenium neutralize acid. They occur naturally in nature, but not in the

body. They must be introduced as part of a balanced diet.

Given the critical role of antioxidants in good health, it is not surprising that

the body itself manufactures its own natural antioxidants.

The most important of these is glutathione. Because all other antioxidants

depend upon the presence of glutathione to function properly, scientists

call it 'the master antioxidant.'

Glutathione binds to toxins, forming a water-soluble complex - which is

ultimately excreted in the urine or bile as waste.

Food for the Blood

Elevated glutathione levels enable the body to produce more white blood

cells. White blood cells are the body's garbage collectors and are the most

important cells for maintaining sterility of the body fluids.

Glutathione plays a central role in the proper function of the white blood

cells. Dr. Bustavo Bounous, a leading glutathione expert, says, 'The

limiting factor in the proper activity of our lymphocytes (the white blood

cells) is the availability of glutathione.' In other words, healthy growth

and activity of the white blood cells depends upon glutathione's

availability. Put simply, glutathione is 'food' for the white blood cells.

Cellular Detoxifier

Whether we know it or not, we are continually inhaling and ingesting natural

and synthetic acidic toxins. They are unavoidable in these modern times

both in our polluted cities and our poorly engineered food supplies. When

the body has the health and the nourishment it needs, it works tirelessly to

eliminate acidic toxins and to protect itself. But, increasing levels of environmental pollution are

depleting the body's store of glutathione more and more rapidly.

'Birds eye' do them frozen like peas. Not sure if you'll get them in the states? I have some in my freezer and try to add them to meals here and there
