Right To Protein, one of India’s foremost protein awareness initiatives is inviting the nation to join countries around the world to commemorate the month of April as ‘Soy Month’ to spread awareness about protein-rich soy foods and soy-fed animal protein sources that help meet the daily protein requirements.
Globally many countries recognize April as Soy Month. A nationally celebrated Soy Month will encourage Indian citizens at large to also learn and know more about different types of protein rich soy foods and their importance in daily meals for better nutrition and health.
The month will also aim at bringing in increased focus on adequate quantity and quality of soy for human as well as animal consumption.
The key focus area for the Right To Protein initiative and its supporters throughout Soy Month will be to increase knowledge about the various soy foods that are available to the people and how to include them in daily diets.
Moreover, this time will also be dedicated to starting correction of prevailing misinformation and myths around soybeans that have been a barrier to adequate consumption of this protein rich wholefood.
In addition to bringing soy-based foods to the spotlight during Soy Month, the Right To Protein initiative will also be highlighting the importance of consuming poultry foods, meat, and seafood, that are fed soybean meals to achieve better nutrition profiles and go on to become rich sources of protein foods for people to fill their protein gaps.
