Historical note Soybeans were one of the first crops grown by humans and have been consumed for approximately 5000 years in China where they are regarded as both a food and a medicine. During the Chou dynasty 1134-246 BC fermentation techniques were developed to produce tempeh, miso and tamari soy sauce, with tofu being invented around the second century BC. Soy first reached the West as imported soy sauce, and soy bean cultivation began in the 1 770s, primarily for animal feed. It was not until World War I that soy became a significant crop for human consumption (Natural Standard Patient Monograph 2005). Soy protein was first produced in the 1 930s for its functional properties and used as a pigment binder for paper, a foam for fire extinguishers and a fibre for making artificial silk before being used as a food supplement in the 1 960s (Wikipedia 2006).
