Soy protein in meat?


So reading the label of some meat I bought at the local butcher shop and it lists the ingredients as follows: buffalo, salt, spice, water, honey, soya (not sure if that should read soy) nitrate, natural smoke, garlic

My question is with the soya, is that a filler, high carb??

soya nitrate probably means a nitrate sourced from soy. Nitrate (usually sodium nitrate) is a preservative added to red meat that helps keep it red. The previous ingredient honey is going to be a bigger issue with respect to carbs though it depends on the quantity used. I think nitrates have been shown to be carcinogenic when fed to rats in very high dose and some avoid them as potentially harmful.


A typo perhaps? Soy instead of sodium??


That is not just plain meat — it’s got either a rub or a marinade on it.

soya is just another word for soy

Might want a pure source of meat
Soy … not as heart healthy as once thought. U.S. moves to revoke claim that soy protein protects the heart

Not sure where to put this but here might do. They are determined to keep us sick

Soy meat alternatives are a healthy, high-quality protein source that contains all essential amino acids needed for growth. Soyfoods are a good source of essential fatty acids and contain no cholesterol and little or no saturated fat.
