How Can a Plant-based Diet Help The Environment?


How Can a Plant-based Diet Help The Environment?

Plant-based diet

The challenges we’re faced with today — with regard to the environment — are vast and diverse.

These challenges range from the destruction of animal and plant habitats through deforestation to the predictions of leading environmental experts about global warming.

If you are just like us, health-conscious and environment-conscious, the predictions can be terrifying. Thankfully, there are actionable ways we can protect our environment and the earth at large.

One way we can help save and protect the environment is by eating more plant-based diets such as soybeans products, vegetarian products, and plant-based meat.

Ways that Plant-based Diets Can Help the Environment

1. Reduce Carbon Footprint

Animal agriculture has contributed significantly to global warming. According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, livestock production is responsible for 14.5% of global greenhouse gas emissions. 

The manure produced by livestock is responsible for 37% of agricultural greenhouse gas emissions. Also, manure and its management in factory farms produce large amounts of methane — a gas that warms the earth 20 times faster than carbon dioxide.

2. Conserve Water

Agriculture takes up about 70% of freshwater use. It makes the agricultural sector the largest water-consuming industry in the world. In this statistic, meat and dairy products are at the forefront of large water consumption. 

According to the Water Footprint Network, it takes 2,000 gallons of water to produce just one gallon of milk. Which is why plant based products such as soy beans, oats, almonds and cashews are recommended substitutes to dairy products.

3. Reduce or Eliminate Dead Zones

The leading cause of pollution and ocean dead zones is animal agriculture. The wastes from factory farms are usually kept in giant lagoons and applied to crops as fertilizer — untreated. 

The thousands of toxins contained in such large amounts of manure cannot all be absorbed by the soil. The unabsorbed toxins find their way into groundwater and then into rivers and oceans, where they end up destroying marine ecosystems due to oxygen depletion.

4. Provide Cleaner Air

All those tons of manure that results in dead zones are also responsible for producing ammonia, which is the most potent form of nitrogen, that kills fish, encourages algae growth, and contributes to smog. 

Furthermore, the air surrounding factory farms usually contains high levels of hydrogen sulfide, particulate matter, endotoxins, carbon dioxide, and methane.

5. Reduce Climate Change Impact

Food production contributes up to 30% of total greenhouse gas emissions, with animal products contributing up to three-quarters of these effects. 

Future projections show that vegetarian diets were associated with the most considerable reductions in greenhouse-gas emissions. Another research  also found that consuming more beans instead of animal product such as beef could significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

6. Alleviates Hunger

There are several reports that more than 800 million people across the world lack adequate food. The reason is directly related to the fact that almost two-thirds of all soybeans, maize, barley, and a third of all grains are used to produce animal foods.

The fight to protect our environment is fought on our plates daily, with the food choice we make. By eating more plant-based diets, you can reduce your carbon footprint, eliminate dead zones, breathe cleaner air, and ensure that essential crops are available to feed people instead of livestock. 

With the abundance of plant-based meat, soybeans, and vegetarian products in Malaysia, it is now easy to eat with the consciousness of helping the environment. For more information, feel free to get in touch with us.

Benefits of Including Soy-based Protein in Your Diet


Benefits of Including Soy-based Protein in Your Diet

soy based products
There is a misconception that vegetarians and vegans often have an inadequate amount of protein because of the diets they follow. This is not true as soy-based products are able to fill in the gap and offer vegetarians and vegans a source of complete proteins. This is the main reason why soya food products form such an integral part of a vegan and vegetarian diet.

However, food products made from soybeans are not just for vegans! A meat-eater too can gain from the benefits of these amazing soya-based products without compromising on taste.

Soybean Products Nutritional Information

Malaysia vegetarian food manufacturers, such as Everbest often include soy-based products, which are full of nutrients as listed below:

Benefits of Eating Soy-based Products

1. Increase Your Protein Consumption

Eating soybean-based products is the perfect way to increase your protein consumption. Studies have shown that when you eat more plant protein in your diet, as opposed to more carbohydrate, it has more benefits, including:

  • Reduces appetite and hunger levels
  • Increases muscle mass and strength
  • Good for your bones
  • Boosts metabolism and increase fat burning
  • Lowers your blood pressure
  • Reduces craving and desire for late-night snacking
  • Helps maintain weight loss

Here are some of the best meat substitute for vegetarians and vegans.

a) Tofu (20 grams of protein)

Tofu is condensed soy milk that manufacturers press into blocks of varying firmness, similar to how dairy milk becomes cheese. It is a good source of protein, calcium, iron and amino acids.

Tofu (also known as bean curd) is very popular in Malaysia, Japan and China.

b) Tempeh (33.7 grams of protein)
Tempeh is a soy meat product that has a few differences from tofu. The main difference is that tempeh is made from the whole soybean, not soy milk, and they use a fermentation process. It has a drier texture, and some of them may contain a mixture of other beans or grains.

Tempeh can be a great barbeque meat substitute or it can be sautéd or stir-fried (to be added to salads or sandwiches).

c) Edamame (18.5 grams of protein)

Edamame beans are whole, immature soybeans sometimes referred to as vegetable-type soybeans. It is high in protein as 155 grams of cooked edamame provides around 18.5 grams of protein. It provides all the essential amino acids your body needs. It can lower cholesterol and it doesn’t raise blood sugar.

2. Great Way To Boost Your Fibre Intake
Eating soy-based products is the perfect way to boost your fibre intake. Eating a diet rich in fibre has many benefits like:
  • Promotes a healthy gastrointestinal system
  • Reduces cholesterol
  • Reduces the risk of developing cardiovascular disease
Including fibre-rich soya bean foods like edamame, soy nuts and tempeh in your diet will help you boost your daily dietary fibre.
3. Help Weight Loss
Including soy-based products in your daily diet can help you lose weight without limiting calories and nutrients. Studies show that soy-based high-protein diets are as effective for weight loss as animal-based high-protein diets.

Keep in mind that people who follow soy-protein-based diet can lose an average of 2 kilograms more than those following a standard diet.
4. Soy-based Products Are A Good Source of Vitamins and Minerals
Soy foods are a great source of B-vitamins, Iron, Zinc, Omega-3 fats, Calcium and Vitamin D.

The Bottom Line
So, as you can see, including soy-based products in your diet has amazing benefits. No matter if you are a vegetarian or a meat lover, including soya beans products in your diet makes a lot of sense. And they taste delicious too!

Recommended Seasonings
Step by Step Cooking:
  1. You can use normal cooking oil or olive oil to first preheat the oil. Then, proceed to deep fry Everbest vegan roasted chicken until it turns slightly brown. After you have finished deep frying your chicken, pick it up and drain the excess oil from the chicken.
  2. Leave the Everbest vegan roasted chicken to be drained and proceed to boil your pasta in a pot filled with half of water for about 6-8 minutes. Once your pasta is fully cooked, drain the excess water and add 1 or 2 tbsp. of olive oil. Mix the pasta with olive oil and put it aside.
  3. Preheat 1 tbsp. of olive oil or other cooking oil and mix the secondary ingredients with the recommended seasonings to stir fry until it turns brownish and gives a sweet aroma.
  4. Lastly, add in your carbonara sauce and cook it under low heat. After it boils, mix it with your pasta and stir it well for about 3 minutes.
  5. After it has been mixed and stirred, serve onto a plate and sprinkle it with a pinch or two of parsley over your pasta.

vegan chicken
The Everbest vegan roasted chicken is made from soy meat products that are safe for vegans. You can obtain this type of vegetarian meat in Malaysia from vegetarian food manufacturers in Malaysia, such as Everbest. In this case, you only need half of the chicken which weighs around 80 gram.

The amount of spaghetti you need depends on how much servings are you making. In this cooking, a serving of 200g of spaghetti is used (enough for 3 adults). You can use more if you like. The use of parsley helps to produce sweet like aroma when making the sauce. A pinch or two is used in the making of this meal.

You can make your homemade sauce for your spaghetti carbonara on your spare time if you like. However, in this meal, we are using 1 can of carbonara sauce from Prego. It’s easier and faster to prepare the sauce.

Mushrooms are one of the well-known ingredients in spaghetti. Here, we need 4 pieces of button mushrooms which are then cut into half. Fresh mushrooms gives a different taste and wonderful aroma when added into your cooking. In this meal, we’re using 3 pieces of fresh mushrooms that are cut into half.

Capsicums have a lot of vitamin C and A. A green capsicum is also prepared in a serving of 15 gram that is cut into small cubes. Red capsicum gives sweeter taste due to their more natural sugar than green capsicum. We also use 15 gram of red capsicum that is cut into small cubes. Olive oil adds a heart-healthy fat and is good for your health compared to other cooking oils. We recommend using 1-2 tbsp. of olive oil when preparing this meal. A pinch of sugar is added to give a little sweetness to the taste. The use of sugar (in moderation) is recommended to maintain your overall health.

Aside from a pinch of sugar, we will also add in a pinch of salt as part of the recommended seasoning to enhance the overall taste. Similar to the use of sugar, you are also advised to use salt in moderation when seasoning your meals.

Finally a dash of white pepper is used to give a little spicy taste. It also helps to enhance the aroma of your meal.

History of The Soybean and How It’s Affecting Our Food


History of The Soybean and How It’s Affecting Our Food

Soybeans are often called the miracle crop because of their great nutritional value. They provide vegetable protein and oil, and can be grown in a wider variety of soil and climatic conditions than any other major world crops.

The green soybean plant is a legume that is related to peas, peanuts and alfalfa, and is included in the category of oilseed. Soybeans are the third most valuable crop in the world, and the number one in versatility. ​ ​

History of Soybeans

Soybeans originate from China. Soybeans with four other plants (rice, wheat, barley, and millet) were named sacred by Emperor Shen-Neng of China in 2853 BC.

It was between 11th and 17th century BC that soybean plants were cultivated into a food crop in eastern China.

Soybeans spread to other countries such as Japan, Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Burma, Nepal and India via the establishment of sea and land routes in the first century AC to the Age of Discovery.

In the early 1800’s, the first soybean arrived in America aboard a ship. But it was not until 1879 that farmers in America started planting soybeans. Soybean plants flourished thanks to the hot and humid summer weather conditions in the United States.

During World War II, the US government raised soybean popularity. They asked farmers to grow more soybeans to help feed wartime America and its allies. During this time, the US production of the miracle crop tripled.

And while the soybean has been consumed for centuries in many countries, it was not until the 1960s that it began to emerge as a common food source.

Now the market for soybeans has gone global. The soybean processing industry has arisen throughout Asia and has spread to the Middle East, North Africa and throughout America. Without a doubt, the use of soybean products has continued to expand worldwide.
Soybeans are now more popular than ever, thanks to their versatility as a food. The nutritional value offered by soybeans is great because they contain fibre, zinc, iron, protein, calcium, and they are low in saturated fat and besides having zero cholesterol.
