That's the question which the best scientists and doctors in China must answer.

For a country that is experiencing the greatest economic expansion in the history of mankind, its top priority remains the same: to feed a billion-strong population.

However, the China of today is vastly different from what it was a generation ago.  This is the land where the past meets the future. 

No longer is it an underdeveloped country, and starvation and hunger are becoming outmoded.  With increased affluence, especially in the urban areas, the Chinese population is no longer satisfied with the basic necessities.

They are looking for the best in life, not just what they wear, but also in what they eat and how they live.  The trend now is to stay fit, to live longer, to enjoy the fruits of development.  But where does the good life come from?

From the food we eat, according to the scientists and doctors.

They conducted an extensive study on different segments of the Chinese population, trying to find a co-relation between dietary habits, lifestyle and health. What intrigued them was a particular group:
the monks.

Chinese monks are strict vegetarians, and yet they enjoy substantially better health and longevity than most other groups.  What is it that sustains them?

A scrutiny of the monks' diet reveals a heavy intake of soya products.  The nutritious goodness of soyabean has long been acknowledged, but now, the scientist are able to pinpoint the role it played in keeping the body strong and healthy.

What is it that makes Heilongjiang Soya so good?

To find that answer, the scientists literally split the beans. In doing so, they made a startling discovery. The skin and embryo are useless and detrimental to health. For people who suffer from gastric and gout, an intake of soya product that contains the skin and embryo will actually worsen the condition. 

Unfortunately, almost all soya products in the market are made from whole beans, and the inclusion of the skin and embryo has lessen the nutritional value of the product, while making it out-of-bounds to gastric and gout patients.

The scientists concluded therefore, to enjoy the true goodness of soyabeans, both the skin and the embryo must be discarded.

The scientists also discovered that the nutrition from soyabean is volatile. If left standing for over an hour, the nutrition will quickly be lost. To enjoy soya nutrition, soyabean milk must be taken fresh, in other words, not more than an hour after it was prepared.

Now armed with the information, the scientists set forth to create the finest soyabean. It was easier said than done, but not entirely an impossible task.

First of all, a site in Heilongjiang Province was chosen for the planting, as the place is relatively distant from the fast growing industrial zones of China, and pollution of the air and water is minimal. An organic farming method is employed, thereby only organic fertilisers are used, and no chemical pesticides are used.

What makes Heilongjiang Soya™ different from normal soya beverages is the processing. The beans undergo a manufacturing process in which the skin and embryo are discarded, and only 45% of the bean is actually used to make the soya powder. The beans are sterilised and deodorised, but other than that, NO preservatives, artificial colouring or chemical solvents are added to the powder.
