Abstract

This paper deals with aspects of the production and use of soybeans in Brazil, and the contribution by the Instituto de Tecnologia de Alimentos, ITAL, to the research and development of popular institutionalized products, based on soybeans. Two programs for food supplementation, one on a national level, and the other on a regional level, are described. All the products utilized contain soybeans as a protein source, and are directed at 6-to-14-yr-olds. The paper also describes products that the food industry has commercialized for the official institutional programs, industrial and hospital restaurants. The report also shows the results of a campaign to increase the use of soybeans by the population.
