Dana Jacobi is the author of The Natural Health Cookbook. Her articles have appeared in Food & Wine, American Health, Food Arts, and Natural Health magazines.From Publishers Weekly:
The FDA has announced that consuming 25 grams of soy daily may lower blood cholesterol, and other authorities claim that soy reduces the risks of breast and prostate cancer and osteoporosis, and can alleviate menopausal symptoms. Meanwhile, Jacobi, a spokeswoman for the United Soybean Board and Vitasoy USA, admits, "Soy foods vary noticeably, both in taste and in texture, from one brand to another" and "Soy cheese is another touchy question." Jacobi (The Best of Clay Pot Cooking) helps cooks navigate the array of soy flours, soy filets, tofu, edamame (soybeans in the shell) and soy dairy-replacements now available. The most useful sections are "Sources and Ingredients" and "Techniques," which cover everything from soy nuts to how to press and freeze tofu. Meat lovers with high cholesterol can find solace in California "Bacon" and Avocado Wrap, but may be perplexed by White Pizza with Prosciutto, which uses real prosciutto. Vegetarians will enjoy the easy Jamaican Cook-Up with Black Soybeans and Greens, but those watching their fat intake will need to avoid the coconut milk that gives it flavor. Laotian Lemon "Pork" with Green Beans and Smoked Tempeh Pate with Walnuts will expand a vegan's repertoire if said vegan can overlook the many other dishes using eggs and animal products. Recipes, while reliable, won't astound with their flavor, and the "hidden pill" approach is favored in Curried Butternut Squash Soup and Edamole. But all that soy can't hurt, and companies "keep working to improve products."
