Quinoa and Green Soybean Snacks
Edamame is also known as vegetable soybean, beer bean and green soybean. It requires high temperatures and at least 65 days to develop edible beans. There are a variety of cultivars that can be grown in international conditions. These Edamame varieties are ideal for American gardens:
“BSH20.” These beans are sold frozen throughout the year and are excellent fresh edamame beans during the summer. Edamame They can be found from ten inches to twenty-two inches tall, with an average weight of eleven pounds. They grow yellow flowers. “BSH Tomorrow’s Delight,” another variation, is among the most popular green soybean varieties.

This variety is also available in canned form. “BSH Tomorrow’s Fruits” can be canned and contains 21 different cultivars. It also includes three sweet black and red bean mixtures.

Soybeans that are grown in Japan and China have been introduced to the United States and in recent years have become extremely popular. Soybeans in this form are sold as “organic” but some sell for less than “natural” because they are harvested without the use of commercial herbicide. One of the most well-known types of soybeans is soybean edamame. It is made from soybeans that have been washed and then soaked in a hot bath. It is high-protein and low in fat and sodium and has a pleasant taste.
The National Soybean Board offers edamame in both large and small sizes. I couldn’t find information on the United States’ dietary recommendations regarding edamame. Based on the information I read it seems safe to assume that the high concentration of minerals and protein is safe to consume daily. I advise anyone who has difficulty digesting the regular soy protein to consume large quantities of edamame in order to overcome the difficulty in digesting regular soy protein. People with food allergies may need to reduce their consumption of soy.
A fascinating discovery is that edamame contains phytoestrogens. This is a type estrogen. Research has shown that estrogens may increase the growth of breast carcinoma cells. This could be a problem for women who are concerned about their health. I’m not knowledgeable enough about phytoestrogens to determine if there is evidence that they interfere with testosterone and other hormones. This could be a topic of study that merits further investigation. Based on my knowledge of soy protein and its capacity to increase energy the benefits of incorporating the edamame supplement to my diet will be evident.
Other legumes are grown in the United States that can grow as tall as corn, but smaller than beans. I’ve seen them at health food stores and sometimes at Asian markets in my area. They’re sold as long beans or canned edamame. I haven’t been able to find any information regarding the nutritional value of the beans, other than to say that they were high in protein and moderately low in fats.
Raw edamame is a good option if you’re considering adding it to your diet to get more protein. It is possible to eat a few ounces of it raw if you purchase it already prepared. To make it more enjoyable, you can add soy sauce, some crunchy lettuce or radishes. It’s a great source for iron and vitamin B12. The beans themselves are nutritious, high in protein, and low in fats. This snack will satisfy your cravings and keep you fuller longer.
