Which Vegetarian Items Are Soy Products?

Is It a Soy Product?

Now that April Fools' Day, Easter, Passover, and the NCAA Championships have come and gone, what's left to celebrate? Well, for starters, it's National Soyfoods Month. For vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores alike, soybeans and soybean-derived products are a source of complete protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and isoflavones. Soy products are often used in vegetarian cooking, but not all meatless protein sources are derived from soybeans. Can you guess which foods are soy products and which ones aren't? Test your know-how by taking my quiz!

:( Maybe they switched the ingredients, but didn't update the site. I'll check the box next time I go to the store. Have you tried Sunshine burgers?

@ Danakscully64 Well, you will not believe this, but I was determined to find this Gardenburger without the TVP. I checked every kind including the original & they all have TVP in them. Perhaps it's different in California (or wherever you are) or something? Not sure. Kind of aggravated because I don't want the TVP. Guess I'll have to make veggie-burgers homemade (not difficult).

No, we all get paid. You mean, you don't get your check at the end of the month? :p

Um, the quiz says that Gardenburgers "contain soy". I supposed if we were playing for money it would be important. This is just for fun, isn't it?

9/10 ^^my thoughts exactly, there are a lot of veggie burgers you could have used that are totally soy-based, but Gardenburgers are basically just veggies, rice and cheese smashed together... not a great example of a "soy product"

9/10. I still don't see how Gardenburger is a soy product. The very last ingredient on the list of the Original Burger is SOY LECITHIN. I didn't know less than a dash made it count as a soy product. When I think "soy product," I think that at least 1/8 of the dish contains soy. That's a bad question.
