This event is the second part of a special three-part webinar series on "The Future of Soya for Health and Sustainability – Sharing Global Learnings". Soya has been part of the traditional Asian cuisine for centuries – and it is fast becoming an increasing part of the global diet. In this series, you will hear from internationally-acclaimed experts discussing the latest research across the globe and exploring the future of soya – for both health and sustainability.

Part 2 of this series will provide you with an overview of the very latest peer-reviewed research papers on soya and the endocrine system. It will investigate the latest data on the safety of soya for human consumption as well as opinion among research and nutrition professionals.
