So, what is soy polysaccharides?

Soy polysaccharides are complex carbohydrates extracted from soybeans that have a wide range of food and industrial applications. These natural, plant-based ingredients are used as emulsifiers, thickeners, and stabilizers in various food products, including dressings, sauces, bakery items, and beverages. Soy polysaccharides can also improve the texture, mouthfeel, and shelf life of foods while enhancing their nutritional profile. Their unique properties make them an excellent alternative to animal-based additives, and they are widely considered safe for consumption. As a result, soy polysaccharides have become increasingly popular in the food industry as a versatile, sustainable, and healthy ingredient choice.
