Canadian soy food products adhere to rigorous standards of quality of safety, closely monitored by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
Canada’s soybean industry works with partners to develop new traits and uses for soy-based products, from concept to completion.
Canada is expanding into a broader range of soy-based products as demand grows and more is learned about the value and versatility of soybeans.
Most soy products now commercialized in Canada are made for the food industry. Canadian food scientists routinely consult with national and international soy food processors to keep pace with their requirements.
Canadian researchers are also exploring new uses for soybeans in nutraceuticals, biofuels and industrial products. Development is facilitated by the Soy 20/20 Project, which builds links between market opportunities and the resources needed to realize them.
