5th Soy Symposium 21-24 September 2003, Disneys Contemporary Resort, Orlando, Florida
This international symposium on soy, the fifth in a biennial series, covered the latest and evolving ideas relating to the actions of soy, its protein and other bioactive constituents.
Lectures from an impressive number of the leading researchers on the cutting edge of soy research were complemented by more than 150 posters covering a wide range of areas of relevance to human nutrition and disease. Special sessions addressed some of the newest and hottest topics.
For the first time, an entire session devoted to soy peptides reviewed the evidence that peptides formed during the digestion of soy protein may contribute to some of the physiological effects of soy.
An entire session explored the actions of soy isoflavone metabolite and reviewed the evidence suggesting equol producers benefit more from soy diets than non-equol producers.
Plus, presentations covered several new areas of research that might help to shape your own investigations, such as the effect of genistein on tissue Vitamin D levels, obesity and on cataract formation.
