The pros and cons of soy for your body.
The Bottom Line About Soy
A little soy each day can be good for you. Most experts recommend eating just one to two servings a day. (One serving = 1⁄2 cup tofu or shelled edamame or 1 cup soymilk.) You can be a bit more liberal with fermented soyfoods like tempeh and miso as fermentation helps neutralize the calcium-interfering phytic acid in soy.
