Note: Ipriflavone, a synthetic isoflavone, has been studied as a possible way to treat or prevent bone loss in post-menopausal women. This monograph concentrates on natural soy. Ipriflavone is discussed separately. Soy isoflavones, genistein and daidzein, have been studied as treatments for various conditions. This monograph concentrates on soy protein or foods containing soy protein. Isoflavones are discussed separately. Soy lecithin is derived from the processing of soybeans. It is a mixture of fatty substances separated from soybean oil and used as a food additive. Its chemical name is phosphatidylcholine and contains the constituents of choline, phosphoric acid, glycerin, and fatty acids. Soy lecithin is discussed in a separate monograph. Soybean oil and soy-derived sterols are not specifically discussed.
