She then compared the activity of beta-conglycinins with glycinins and found that hydrolysates from beta-conglycinins inhibited almost 50 percent of lipid accumulation in the fat cells.
Her research shows that soy that is low in glycinins and high in beta-conglycinins is preferred for its ability to inhibit lipid accumulation and inflammation.
"The peptides fight inflammation by blocking key enzymes in the body's immune response," said the scientist. de Mejia said that soy contains, among others, two types of protein, glycinins and beta-conglycinins, and the most important factor influencing a soy cultivar's healthful effects is the proportion in which they occur.
Soy is low in glycinins and high in beta-conglycinins which is at the best ratio to stop fat from accumulating and to reduce inflammation.
There are two types of proteins found in soy, glycinins and beta-conglycinins which the researcher says are the most relevant contributors of soybeans healthy effects.
