Tofu is NOT a fermented food. Natto, tempeh, and miso are all fermented soy foods.
All of these are fermented soy foods
Soybeans also contain phytic/ acid which can act as an anti-nutrient and compromise the absorption and assimilation of important minerals and vitamins like iron and calcium.
True or false?
Soybeans DO contain phytic/ acid, an anti-nutrient that can prevent the proper absorption and assimilation of important minerals and vitamins in the body.
Fermenting soybeans can significantly reduce the levels of phytic acid found in the bean.
