  • Nature's Best Soy Protein

Use Fermented Soy Essence as a dietary supplement to increase intake of protein, soy phytonutrients, calcium and magnesium.

Soy isoflavones, along with other naturally occurring soy phytonutrients, have been shown in scientific studies to have many health benefits, including maintaining healthy cells, promoting normal cardiovascular function, supporting bone health and assisting estrogen balance.

Jarrow Formulas Fermented Soy Essence utilizes organic soy milk that is fermented (predigested) using the best of the probiotic bacteria, including L. acidophilus, L. bulgaricus, L. casei, L. plantarum and S. thermophilus.

  • The cell wall contents and metabolites of the beneficial bacteria used for fermentation promote optimal immune function and intestinal health.
  • The fermentation of soy improves the digestibility of soy protein. Isoflavone bioavailability is enhanced, due to the ability to these beneficial bacteria to convert the isoflavones to more absorbable forms.
  • Predigestion makes Fermented Soy Essence superior to ordinary soy protein.
  • Calcium, added during fermentation, is converted to the soluble lactate form, thereby improving absorption of the calcium. Each serving of Fermented Soy Essence provides 400 mg soluble calcium, balanced with 200 mg magnesium, for increased benefit in preserving and maintaining bones. Additionally, replacing animal protein with soy protein has been shown to reduce bone calcium loss.
  • Folic acid and Selenium support healthy cell replication.
  • Bromelain and Papain, enzymes from pineapple and papaya, further assist protein digestion.
  • Fermented Soy Essence is Non-GMO (Non-Genetically Modified Organisms).
  • Soy Protein and Heart Disease: Consumption of 25 grams of soy protein a day, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.

One serving of Fermented Soy Essence provides 11 grams of soy protein.

Great protein supplement
I have been supplementing protein with a high quality brand soy/whey protein for about three years, I noticed significant health improvements that could be solely attributed to increasing protein intake alone. But there was a price issue as each 450g bottle was about $50NZD and I went through at least one a month. Another issue that I learnt of only when I came across iHerb is the idea of fermented or pre digested soy. Soy Essence gives approximately the same % of protein per serving as my previous staple, but in honesty no one can really claim what the bio availability and ultimately assimilation of any protein is. I now prefer to take fermented soy, it provides full spectrum amino acids and I have not noticed any negative side effects since switching to fermented soy. This is not marketed as a protein supplement, but the intention is the same. I make sure to take this with another protein source (fermented goat, and whey) plus B complex and vitamin C to enhance protein absorption. The taste was not so palatable when I first tried it, but this was the same issue with the first ever protein I tried. This is mildly sweet and slightly gritty. I had been using Now Foods because I wanted to try the difference, this is far better as it does not contain fructose and has a lower fat content. PS - this has natural calcium/magnesium and selenium (plus digestive enzymes) so I get my hit of calcium without the need to reach for dairy products. It is great to see companies using fermentation and probiotics to create specific nutrient profiles.

Great for the skin

Posted by Reviewer2740251 on Dec 14, 2007

I have had problems with oily skin and acne for a long time. I was surprised but happy to see that this product actually helps! Skin gets really smooth and acne is much better. And I can actually see the effect within hours. It does not taste very good, but I can live with it.

fermented is the best

Posted by Reviewer2144919 on May 30, 2009

I've been taking soy protein but fermented soy is less heavy for my stomach and great sweet vanilla taste.

Perimenopause and Menopause

Posted by Reviewer3291104 on Dec 22, 2009

I started spotting, having mode swings and PMS for months. I have been taking Easy Change for years, which regulated my periods, but now I need something more. I tried more herbs, but then bled for 6 weeks. My ultrasound and biopsy are normal. I know that for me perimenopause is about balancing progesterone and estrogen. Doctors can only take blood many times in one months to see what is not balanced and practitioners who evaluate saliva can also determine which hormone is lacking. Instead, I bought Jarrow Fermented Soy and a wild yam cream - one is progesterone and the other estrogen. I found that the soy really helped me - and this is very individual. I received this product first and began immediately and my bleeding stopped, my breasts are no longer tender, and my mode/emotions are stabilized. I then got and tried the cream, which gave me hot flashes. By working this out without blood work or saliva tests by just trying the two hormones, I felt more empowered and could figure out what I needed. Maybe in the future, my balance will change and I'll need the wild yam cream. This period in life is very individual, but I do want to add that every menopause soy product I found was unfermented soy and that is why I did not take soy for years even though I understood its benefits for women going through this change in life. I tried Jarrows product to see if it offered the same benefits as soy products sold for menopause and found that it gave me the same benefits - and without the scary things associated with unfermented soy. So, I am really thankful. In addition to all the benefits (my bleeding stopped, my emotions are level, my breasts aren't tender...), I take this product with vanilla Good Karma whole grain brown rice milk and it quenches my sweet cravings as well as fills me and provides me with energy. I take two TBSP twice daily - the second one at 3pm where I always would go for a cookie and now feel so much better and my energy stays level through the rest of the day.
