Soy proteinÂ is a proteinÂ that is isolated from soybean. It is made fromsoybean mealÂ that has been dehulledÂ and defatted. Dehulled and defatted soybeans are processed into three kinds of high protein commercial productsÂ : soy flour, concentrates, and isolates.Â Soy protein isolate, no matter if it is GMO-free or organic, contains processed free glutamic acid - MSG.Â Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) is considered an excitotoxin, a substance that overstimulates neurotransmitters in the body. The exitotoxic process plays a major role in many life-threatening maladies: strokes, brain injury, brain tumors, degenerative brain diseases (Alzheimer\'s, Parkinson\'s and Lou Gehrig\'s disease,) meningitis, neurological Lyme disease, encephalitis, schizophrenia, depression, bipolar disorder, addiction behaviors, multiple sclerosis and there is growing evidence that excitotoxins play a central role in autism.
