Luis Mojica, Vermont P. Dia, Elvira González De Mejía

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter presents an overview of soybean proteins; it includes world soybean production, distribution, and utilization. Special emphasis has been given to important physicochemical properties of soybean proteins, examples of laboratory and industrial preparations of soybean protein ingredients, their functional properties, and applications in foods. The chapter also highlights soybean proteins composition. Most recently reported modifications on protein structure through new technologies and chemical and enzymatic reactions are presented. Health benefits of soybean proteins and their principal allergens and inhibitors are also reviewed.
