Dr. Mcilvena, a member of our Scientific Advisory Board, says dry-roasted edamame is like new and improved popcorn—it’s green, easy to eat, low calorie and nutrient-dense. We love the powerful crunch of these legumes, and the flavor is mild yet satisfying. And the nutrition is off the charts. One serving is only 1/3 of a cup, boasting 13 (yes 13!) grams of protein, 8 grams of fiber. And the micronutrient profile is pretty impressive as well; one serving has 10% of your daily iron, 4% daily calcium, and 2% of vitamins A and C. The ingredients are about as simple as you can get, just salt and soy beans. Edamame, one of our favorite SuperFoods, has been shown in studies to have some anti-cancer properties; soy also promotes bone health, and lowers the risk of heart disease. Show us another snack that can do all that!
We eat these green snacks right out of the bag. They’re one of our go-to snacks on busy days when we need something tasty and healthy.
