Hidatsa Seeds – Glycine Max
Consumption of soybeans and food products made from them is increasing because of their desirable nutritional value. However, the oxalate content of seeds from 11 cultivars of soybean showed relatively high levels. Oxalate primarily was found as calcium oxalate crystals. Thirteen tested commercial soy foods contained between 16 and 638 mg of total oxalate per serving. These values compare to those of three other legume foods, peanut butter, refried beans, and lentils. After oxalate has been absorbed from the diet, it cannot be metabolized. Also, it is excreted by the kidney into urine. It binds to calcium forming an insoluble salt that may form kidney stones.
