WILMINGTON, Del., Sept. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- CEO Deb Pace today announced the official launch of the company EarthSpring Foods at the Natural Products Expo East conference in Baltimore, Maryland. EarthSpring Foods has perfected PrimaSoy, an all-natural, patented process for deactivating estrogen, phytic acid, oligosaccharides and trypsin inhibitors from soy, giving people the option of enjoying soy products without the associated concerns of eating estrogen while increasing its adaptability in fighting global malnutrition. Soy flour and soy butter made with the PrimaSoy process will be on hand at booth 959 at the Baltimore Convention Center, September 22-24.
There are strong reasons for people to reduce the amount of estrogen in the food they eat. Hormonal imbalances caused by too much estrogen are found in half of all women over age 35. Because of this, women can suffer from symptoms of estrogen dominance, including mood changes, weight gain and water retention. Men can also suffer from hormonal imbalance, which can result in weight gain or an inability to build muscle-mass. In addition, women who have breast cancer or are breast-cancer survivors are at risk because research has shown that dietary estrogens (phytoestrogens) promote breast cancer cell growth in animals.
"EarthSpring Foods has an ambitious agenda throughout 2011 and into 2012," said Deb Pace, CEO of EarthSpring Foods, who has suffered from problems of hormonal imbalance herself. "We will follow a two-tiered track of creating estrogen-free soy products for boutique US markets, while licensing the PrimaSoy process to manufacturers, making estrogen-free and nutrient-dense soy available to consumers globally. We are excited by the countless options that PrimaSoy presents."
EarthSpring Foods was initially founded to alleviate the global problems of malnutrition with a soy solution. In addition to deactivating the protein-blockers that prevent soy from playing a significant part in the battle against malnutrition, the PrimaSoy process also creates a new option for people who are tracking their estrogen levels for health reasons, or who want to make a conscious choice about the hormones they eat.
