Like corn and some other crops long domesticated by man, the relationship of the modern soya bean to wild-growing species can no longer be traced with any degree of certainty. It is a cultural variety (a cultigen) with a very large number of cultivars. However, it is known that the progenitor of the modern soya bean was a vine-like plant, that grew prone on the ground.
Beans are classed as pulses whereas soya beans are classed as oilseeds. The word soy is derived from the Japanese word shoyu (soy sauce/soya sauce).

USES: Soya bean is a stunning oil and is now becoming very popular with forward thinking therapists, principally because the oil is very light, high in vitamin E etc. and a really good alternative to Sweet Almond Oil which is probably the most popular of all carriers.
