Making cookies that are good for your heart
Years of research has proven that saturated and trans fats clog arteries, make it tough for the heart to pump and are not valuable components of any diet. Unfortunately, they are contained in many foods. Now, a University of Missouri research team has developed a soybean which produces oil that is naturally low in saturated and trans fats.

Going where no unhydrogenated soybean oil has gone before
A new soybean oil developed at Iowa State University not only has low linolenic acid, but also high oleic acid. That means the trans fat-free oil could go where no unhydrogenated soybean oil has gone before--into food products like non-dairy creamers and cereal and energy bars that require more stability than previous unhydrogenated soybean oils could deliver. The food industry is testing the oil. (2006-06-23)

Replacing soybean meal in pig diets
Canola, cottonseed, and sunflower products can replace soybean meal in diets fed to pigs, but they contain less protein and energy. To determine if it makes economic sense to use them, producers need to know the concentrations and digestibility of the nutrients they contain. To help them make the decision, University of Illinois researchers examined amino acid digestibility for these products. (2013-02-28)

Mussels inspire development of waterproof adhesives
Nature provides spectacular examples of adhesives that work extraordinarily well in wet and harsh conditions. Mussels stick to boats and rocks by secretion of protein-based adhesives that demonstrate adhesion even in the harsh marine environment. Inspired by these marine creatures, Dr. Abraham Joy and Dr. Ali Dhinojwala and their teams at The University of Akron have developed a synthetic mimic of mussel adhesives using soybean oil as a starting material, which is a renewable resource.

Genetically modified soybean oil only slightly healthier than regular soybean oil
A new soybean oil genetically modified to be healthier than conventional soybean oil causes obesity, pre-diabetes and fatty liver in a nearly identical manner to that of regular soybean oil when part of a typical American high-fat diet, an animal study shows. The study results will be presented Friday at The Endocrine Society's 97th annual meeting in San Diego. (2015-03-05)

Soybean grant gives researchers tools to unravel better bean
For millennia, people have grown soybeans and turned them into many useful products. But when it comes to understanding why a soybean grows, blooms or produces like it does, researchers are left with unanswered questions. University of Georgia professor Wayne Parrott aims to find the answers with a three-year, $2.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation and a jumping gene in rice found by a UGA colleague.

6 months of fish oil reverses liver disease in children with intestinal failure, study shows
A clinical trial conducted at the Children's Discovery and Innovation Institute at Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA has found that, compared with soybean oil, a limited duration (24 weeks) of fish oil is safe and effective in reversing liver disease in children with intestinal failure who require intravenous nutrition. The researchers believe that fish oil may also decrease the need for liver and/or intestinal transplants -- and mortality -- associated with this disease. (2013-08-14)

How healthy is genetically modified soybean oil?
Soybean oil accounts for more than 90 percent of all the seed oil production in the United States. Genetically modified soybean oil, made from seeds of GM soybean plants, was recently introduced into the food supply on the premise that it is healthier than conventional soybean oil. But is that premise true? Just barely, say scientists at the University of California, Riverside and their colleagues at UC Davis. (2015-03-05)

GM soybean oil causes less obesity and insulin resistance but is harmful to liver function
Researchers at the University of California, Riverside have tested a genetically-modified soybean oil used in restaurants and found that while it induces less obesity and insulin resistance than conventional soybean oil, its effects on diabetes and fatty liver are similar to those of conventional soybean oil, the major vegetable cooking oil used in the United States, with popularity on the increase worldwide. The study also compares the GM soybean oil to coconut and olive oils. (2017-10-02)
