Soy 101, please

nemo | Dec 19, 2013 02:37 PM

Can someone please educate me on the good, the bad, and the ugly about soy. I stopped eating tofu a while back because I thought it wasn't good for a North American's diet. But now I'm reading about the benefits of miso and tofu.

What is fermented soy? Is it tofu or not? If so, what is UNfermented soy?

I did a CH search, but all I get is how to cook with tofu. I'm just confused.
Can someone please spell it out for an idiot!

Thank you in advance for your thoughts.

Many thanks in advance.
