What is Edamame and how is it different than other soybeans?
Edamame is a specialty soybean harvested as a green vegetable when the seeds are immature and have expanded to fill 80 to 90 percent of the pod width. Like field-dried soybeans, the seeds of Edamame varieties are rich in protein and highly nutritious. Worldwide, it had only been considered a minor crop or used as a cover-crop, but was quite popular in East Asia as a snack food. In recent years it has become very popular as a vegetable used in many recipes including soups, stir-fry's, casseroles and salads. As a snack, the pods are cooked in lightly salted boiling water and then only the beans are eaten by pushing them directly from the pods into your mouth. Seapoint Farms Edamame are sold in the pods, shelled beans or in a variety of veggie blends and dry roasted varieties. They are available in most Supermarkets, Club Stores and Natural Food stores nationwide.....
Do you offer Vegan products?
All of their products are Vegan; they use no animal products or bi-products of any kind.
Where can I find their Edamame products?
Their products can be found in the freezer section and grocery departments of many supermarkets, natural food stores and club stores throughout North America. Many supermarkets now have "natural" sections, so look there if you can't find us in the main frozen vegetable doors or in the Natural Frozen Food section.
How long will the products last after I defrost or cook the Edamame package?
Their products will last in the refrigerator for about two to three days after defrosting. They don't use preservatives so they need to be tightly wrapped after opening and kept refrigerated!
Can their products be re-frozen?
They suggest you pour out what you desire from the bag and may keep the remaining product in the freezer.
Do I have to cook it or can it be eaten just defrosted right out of the package?
All of their Edamame & Veggie Blend products are blanched when you purchase them, so there is no problem eating them as is; however, people have different taste preferences so you will need to experiment on how firm you enjoy your Edamame. In addition to their traditional blanched Edamame, they do offer a ready to eat variety that you can just defrost and ENJOY!
Is soy a complete protein?
Yes, soy protein is a complete protein because it contains all the essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce.
They have wheat and gluten allergies in the family, which of their products can I eat that contain no gluten?
All of their Frozen and Dry Roasted Edamame product lines are wheat free and gluten free
How much soy protein should I incorporate into my diet?
The Food and Drug Administration states that: "25 grams of soy protein a day as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease". By serving soy-based protein, you can help lower your family's cholesterol level. Seapoint Farms can help with delicious Edamame based products that the entire family will enjoy!
Why does their packaging say Non-GMO and what is that?
Non-GMO indicates that they do not genetically alter or modify the seed or structure of their beans. GMO is the process of copying a gene from one living organism (bacteria, plant, or animal) and adding it to another living organism using biotechnological methods. Genes are the instructions all living things use to build and maintain their cells. Adding a new gene(GMO) to a crop may give it a trait that is useful to growers and consumers, creating plants that are more resistant to insects and disease, that simplify weed control, or that produce fruits with longer shelf life. Since there is not enough research on the long term effects of GMOs, Seapoint Farms has taken a position of avoiding any GMOs in all of their Edamame.
Is Seapoint Farms Edamame low in Carbs?
Actually, they are proud to say that Edamame is naturally low in Carbs. One ½ cup serving of the beans (without the pods) is only 5 net effective carbs.
The Seapoint Farms Story
Seapoint Farms is the largest importer and manufacturer of Edamame products in the United States, offering high quality, good tasting and convenient Edamame vegetable products and snacks. Seapoint Farms began in 1996 as the first American company to pioneer Edamame into the American supermarkets and health food stores. Seapoint Farms has been instrumental in the public's early education and awareness about the health benefits of Edamame. The Seapoint Farms brand has gained national success and is now the leading brand of Edamame in Supermarkets throughout the U.S.
When the FDA concluded in 1999 that foods containing soy protein included in a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease by lowering blood cholesterol levels, Seapoint Farms became a vehicle for bringing soy's health benefits to consumers in great vegetable options. In January 2007, Seapoint Farms signed a multi-year licensing agreement with Nickelodeon/Viacom and created an all new line of Thaw and Serve - Organic Kid's packs of Edamame with Dora the Explorer shelled Edamame and SpongeBob SquarePants Edamame pods. Seapoint Farms believes that a great and healthy future for our children begins with eating the right way from the very start!
Seapoint Farms uses only non-GMO (non-genetically modified organism) soybeans. Seapoint Farms products retain their naturally-occurring levels of healthful Isoflavones and include the same soy protein proven to reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering blood cholesterol. Seapoint Farms' mission is to provide all natural, delicious and convenient Edamame food products that make it easy to incorporate the benefits of soy in your everyday diet.
