Protein deficiency is widespread in India, as a 2017 study revealed that more than 70 percent of Indian diets do not provide the required amount of protein. The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for protein is 0.8 grams for every kilogram of body weight, something that most Indian diets are unable to provide. The study also revealed that vegetarian diets were more protein deficient, as compared to non-vegetarian diets.

When I got an opportunity to join the bloggers meet by DuPont Nutrition & Health and Ebix India, to learn about benefits and power of Soy Protein, I felt privileged to join in and was super excited to ask questions regarding soy protein and the myths around it. The meet took place at the Courtyard Marriott, Gurugram and was really informative. The panel included Karuna Jayakrishna ( innovation leader, South Asia DuPont Nutrition & health), Dr Namita Nadar (HOD- Department of Clinical Nutrition & Dietetics Fortis Hospital Noida) and Indranil Chatterjee (Regional product line manager, DuPont Nutrition & health protein solution for South Asia and South East Asia) and it shared all the important health benefits of soy-protein.
