We’d like to show the side of the world you don’t normally see on television.
Thank you very much, Holly. This was a bit of an eye-opener. I did a little further research to find that the main producer of soy protein is a company called Solae. You've possibly never heard of them.
The Solae Company is an alliance between DuPont and Bunge Limited.
Now I'm sure you've heard of DuPont. Now, why would a huge pharmaceutical giant like DuPont be so keen to get soy protein into so many food products? Surely, they must have looked into the risks of cardiovascular disease, central nervous system disorders and cancer! Well, yes. They probably did.
Soy protein is just one of a huge array of products by DuPont, the most lucrative of which are their pharmaceutical products, specialising particularly in drugs for the treatment of... er... cardiovascular disease, central nervous system disorders and cancer.
So obviously, they have our best interests at heart.
