Celebrating the Super-Versatile Soybean
Consumers may know soybeans are used to feed livestock that eventually make it to their dinner plates. They may also know about soybeans feeding people directly through products like soy oil, soy milk, tofu and more. Some may even know that soybeans are also a renewable fuel source.

And in many instances, using soy-based products decreases the use of fossil fuels. Learn more about how the tiny soybean is already making a big difference in creating greener, cleaner, home-grown alternatives throughout society — and has massive potential to do much more.
