Soy beans - protein or starch: from on 2004-06-14

Hello Peter,
I always thought that soy is very rich in proteins, so I should group it with them.
Last week I was reading a book written by Jackie Habgood "Get Well With The HAY DIET", where she said that soy and all soy products are in the starchy group.

So how it really goes?

And if she is right, is soy milk also a starch?

You are right.
Soy products such as tofu are almost pure protein.
