Celebrate National Soyfoods Month This April


April is National Soyfoods Month, and celebrating with delicious and affordable soyfoods – high in high-quality protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals – has never been easier, according to the Soyfoods Association of North America (SANA).

Throughout the month of April, soyfoods will be promoted in supermarkets across the US via cooking demonstrations, coupons, in-store displays, and recipes, and online with videos and giveaways, making it a perfect time for consumers to give soyfoods a try – or stock up on their favorites! In addition, SANA will host a Twitter chat with retail dietitians on Wednesday, April 10 at 1 p.m. ET, hosted by Rebecca Scritchfield, MA, RD (@ScritchfieldRD). The chat will focus on the role of soyfoods in a healthy diet and easy ways to incorporate them into everyday meals, using the hashtag #SoyChat.
