Hi Sally,

I enjoyed reading about Edamame. I just had some today for lunch. It was on the Wholefoods Market lunch buffet. They prepared the Edamame with Arame, a sea vegetable; it made a terrific pairing. You can buy the beans frozen, but why do that when you can shop from your own garden.

We just put up a new fence. In past years, the bunnies seemed to get to our bean sprouts before we did! You've inspired me to try growing soy beans again.

Also, as you know my specialty is nutrition. I did a nutrition analysis of Edamame based on USDA nutrient values. Just fyi: 1 cup of cooked Edamame beans are an excellent source of protein, dietary fiber, magnesium, folate, vitamin K and iron. Soy beans also contain calcium and other nutrients.

I think your predictions are right on ^_^

Happy Gardening,
Diana
ps: I love the title of your article!

Sorry to be a party pooper... but soy contains all kinds of antinutrients that inhibit the bodies' ability to absorb calcium, phosphorus, zinc, magnesium, iron, and many vitamins. Soy in products like SPI (soy protein isolate) and HVP have been linked to all sorts of dis-ease. Google the government's PubMed and research some articles. I counted 208 that definitely link obesity (esp. childhood obesity) to HVP (hydrolized vegetable protein).

93% of all soy grown in the US in 2009 was Monsanto's GM seed, and every farmer growing it is assessed from 1/2% to 1% of their crop value to pay into a marketing fund.

Sally, thanks for a great article! I'll be looking for some edamame seeds for our garden.

I like shopping from my garden, too.

wind- nice to hear from you, especially that you understood my (attempt at )catchy title

darius- You have me beat hands down on researching skills. (probably gardening too) I was unaware that soy is a controversial food.

critterologist- thanks for reading ; ^) especially in your busy schedule

Sally, I never miss your articles... although I admit I often read them already when they're in Terry's "approval" queue and then re-read on the actual publishing date!
