Master plant: Glycine max L. MERR.
Fabaceae (Pea family)
INCI: Glycine soja
Soybean is cultivated mainly as fodder plant, vegetable and for oil production.
This pea family member probably stems from a native East Asiatic, very similar wild species (Glycine soja SIEB. & ZUCC.). Our PREMIUM organic soybean oil comes 100% from Austria.
Characteristics and substances:
Soy beans yield a low viscosity, dark to yellowish oil by cold-pressing with a typical taste and aroma.
Alpha-linolenic acid (8%), linoleic acid (57%), oleic acid (22%), saturated fatty acids (15%), vitamin E and plenty of natural lecithine are among its components.
It is a valuable edible oil, which is used in both the hot and cold kitchen.
