ISU SOY PROTEIN STUDY NEEDS PARTICIPANTS
AMES, Iowa--Iowa State University researchers are in immediate need of women to participate in a soy protein research study.
Study participants must be healthy (no chronic diseases or chronic medication use, including hormone/estrogen replacement therapy), postmenopausal women with a body mass index between 20 and 32. Participants must be willing to avoid or limit phytate-rich (nuts, peas, whole grain and soy products) and isoflavone-rich (soy products, beans and peas) foods and discontinue any vitamin, mineral and herbal supplements.
Participants will be asked to consume 40 grams of soy protein daily during the six-week study, and will need to come to the ISU campus three or four times for evaluations. Participants receive compensation and will learn about their dietary intake, anti-oxidant status, iron status and blood chemistry results, including lipid (total, HDL and LDL cholesterol) profile.
If interested, call (515) 294-8673 for more information.
