Soybean (Glycine max). "The seed pods develop in clusters of 3 to 5 cm with each pod usually containing 2 or 3 beans. These beans are sometimes big or small, long, round or oval." (Los Angeles Chinese Learning Center). "The beans from the soybean plant are rich in a group of compounds called isoflavones" which can lower your risk of heart disease, reduce the risk of cancer, help prevent osteoporosis, fight diabetes, lower your risk of kidney disease, and decrease menopausal symptoms (Sharon Howard, R.D., M.S., C.D.E, FADA).
