WHAT IS EDAMAME?

Edamame are young soybeans in pods. Soybeans are native to East Asia and have been consumed by the Chinese, Japanese and Korean people for over 2,000 years. Asians have enjoyed soybeans in the form of tofu (first known to be used in 164 A.D.); as soymilk; as a tasty ingredient in soups and entrees; and finally as beans eaten directly from boiled pods similar to the Edamame that we eat today.

NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS OF EDAMAME

Edamame are packed with nutrition. The beans contain many of the organic compounds and amino acids essential for good health and are naturally high in protein and fiber. Beneficial compounds that are found in Edamame include isoflavones such as genistein and daidzein, which act as antioxidants, and alpha-lineolic acid, which may be beneficial for cardiovascular health. A 1 cup serving of Edamame contains 8 grams of fiber, equivalent to 1/3 of the U.S. recommended daily allowance, and 17 grams of protein.
