In 1999 the FDA affirmed the role of soy in reducing cholesterol: “25 grams of soy protein a day, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.” As soy became popular for its health benefits, food makers rushed through shortcuts to make imitations and exploit this. Though labeled healthy, most soyfoods are made with cheap processes and cheap ingredients like the cheapest imported soy and grain, hexane extracted soy protein treated with a variety of toxic petrochemicals and unsavory additives, mass-produced sugars, etc. Almost all soymilk contains undeclared chemical flavor maskers and refined sugars. Evaporated or dried cane juice is sugar. Organic sugar is an oxymoron because they burn down everglades to grow it. Whole organic soyfood like Edensoy best provides healthy benefits and phyotonutrients from good food sources, which are always better than isolates and chemical imitations.
Soybeans require precise preparation and thorough cooking to properly prepare them as human sustenance. This requires specific equipment and know-how. Only Edensoy provides this value, based upon thorough research into how to best choose and prepare soybeans, overlapped with over 240 continuous quality control checks. From the double reverse osmosis purified water, a patented enzyme invalidator, to the Swedish aseptic packaging equipment, every step contributes to greater value and the best possible nourishment from whole soy. Edensoy is the only soymilk made in the U.S.A. that is properly prepared to nurture human beings.
In 1993 Eden pioneered and created a system to avoid genetically engineered organisms and their derivatives in food. This became important as soybeans became mostly genetically engineered. Much work is demanded to keep Edensoy free of GMOs, including stringent tests of seed, in growing, at the elevator, and at the manufacturing plant. We avoid the use of pharmaceutical enzymes and know all farms, fields, farmers, and suppliers. When the New York Times tested eleven soy and corn based foods, only one tested GMO free — Edensoy.Eden Foods submitted Edensoy to the Non-GMO Project (The Project) August 18, 2008. After a thorough scientific study covering everything from seed to aseptic cartons, Edensoy became the first soymilk in North America to be verified compliant with The Project's standards for avoiding GMOs aka GEOs — Genetically Modified or Engineered Organisms.
Eden Foods achieved the highest score, 955 out of 1,000, on the Organic Soy Scorecard. The results of an investigation carried out over a year-and-half researching the social, environmental, and health impacts of most of the soyfood brands in North America. Cornucopia Institute, an independent advocate working to preserve organic integrity and create economic justice for family farmers, released the report May 2009. They evaluated sixty-two organic soy brands; only seven were in the positive category. Eden ranked highest by far and was declared a “Hero” in the organic industry.
