My husband has been reading the book about the super foods. We have started trying to use them. I bought some soy yogurt today. The list of super foods posted above said for soy to eat 15 grams a day. This container of yogurt (4 oz) said 113 grams. If I ate the whole container ~ would that be my soy for the week, or would I eat it just a spoonful a day? :?:

Thank you for your help.

From what I've read, the recommendations are for grams of soy protein. Your container may have 113 grams but doubtful it is 113 grams of protein. Also, I'm not sure if the recommendation is a minimum recommended amount of soy or a max.

im not sure what kind you have or what the label says but nelie is right. I use silk soy yogurt and a 6oz container has 4grams of protein. Read the labels and check to see

Thank you ~ after reading your posts ~ I read the label on the yogurt more closely ~ it says 5 gm of protein.
