The use of soy beans for human food has of late been the subject of a number of scientific investigations. The literature is not available to the writer at the present time, hence will not be discussed in this brief paper. The nutritive value of soy beans has, however, been established, and a future for this commodity as an article of human food is almost certain. The Chinese and Japanese have used soy beans for many years and prepared them in quite a variety of ways. In our own country little is known of soy beans except as a forage crop for cattle and swine.
