We’ve answered all your questions about and provided you a variety of options for Plant-Based Whole30 Soy Nuts. Whole30’s new Plant-Based Whole30 program allows minimally processed soy products to help you meet your daily protein intake. Soy Nuts are a healthy plant-based complete protein option to add to a variety of dishes for additional protein, crunch and yummy goodness.
What are Soy Nuts?
Soy nuts are mature soybeans soaked in water, drained, and then baked or roasted. They are an excellent plant-based source of protein, rich in omega-3s, high in fiber and antioxidents. Soy Nuts can be used in place of nuts (they might look like nuts, but they are legumes) and are one of the best ways to eat soy as it is minimally processed.
What is the best way to consume Soy Nuts?
Grab a handful as a snack on the go, add to salads, soups or stews for a crunchy topping, ground and made into a “nut” butter and used as a spread on veggies or apples.
What to avoid when buying Soy Nuts?
Avoid brands that contain unapproved seed oils (that are high in omega-3’s and cause inflammation) and preservatives. Purchase organic or Non-GMO when possible as most soybeans grown in the US are genetically modified. (GMO’s)
Are soy nuts Whole30 Compliant?
Not always! Minimally processed soy products are only compliant for the Plant-Based Whole30 program (rules here!) and NOT the traditional Whole30 program (rules here!).

These soy nuts are by FAR our favorite choice, as every other choice below uses seed oils, which are high in inflammation-causing omega 3’s. (Read this article on the effects of seed oils if you want to know more!)
