Soy protein, melamine, China


#1

I’ve seen several posts on food safety and China, but they are several years old.

I became concerned about melamine content in soy protein sourced in China after hearing about it and then reading some real research on the problem.

I contacted the support team, and they replied:

“At this time we source our soy from American producers, and we do not include soy sourced from China. We use only reputable food sources, and have documents that breakdown the actual contents of each ingredient.”

Just thought I’d share the info since it’s not in their FAQ section.

USA annual soy bean production is 108 metric tons; Brazil, 87; Argentina, 53; China, 12. Shipping soy beans to the USA is like shipping coal to Newcastle. The Internet really is a wonderful thing…
