About Soy Beans Organic
The soya bean is a species of legume native to East Asia, widely grown for its edible bean, which has numerous uses.
Soy beans contain significant amounts of phytic acid, dietary minerals and B vitamins. Soy vegetable oil, used in food and industrial applications, is another product of processing the soybean crop. Soybean is the most important protein source for feed farm animals (that in turn yields animal protein for human consumption).
Storage and shelf life
Store soya beans in a dry and sealable food storage container – we recommend glass. Keep the container in a cool, dry and dark area out of the sun and heat.

How to use
Soak beans overnight in plenty of water (in a large bowl with room for beans to triple in size).
Allow the beans to simmer for about 3 hours, or until they are tender. Overtime, the water will evaporate. Add more water to the pot as needed. Use a slotted spoon to scoop out any floating foam or hulls.
For making tempeh, these already hulled soy beans speed up the process considerably. Normally you would need to manually remove the hulls/skins, in order for the spores to inoculate the beans. This is typically the most labour intensive part of the process.
