"This national event fits perfectly with the goal of the Center to encourage consumers to eat more healthy products made from soy," said Barbara Klein, professor of food science and human nutrition and co-director of the Center.
She notes that the Center will be offering a 50 percent discount on all products for sale at the Soy Source store located in the Bevier Hall cafeteria on the U of I Campus. The special offer will run from April 5 to 16.
"This store offers a wide array of conveniently packaged soy foods suitable for individual consumers," Klein said. "These items provide a great opportunity to sample many of the healthy and delicious soy products available in the commercial marketplace."
People can also call the ICSF for the entire month at (217)244-1706 to order a free two cup sample of soy flour or textured soy protein with a recipe card included. Samples are available while supplies last.
