A definition of the term "soybean" is presented. It refers to a legume that is used as a source of several nitrogen-rich foods, including beverages, curd, flour, textured meat substitutes, and oils. The bean can be processed to remove its oils and carbohydrates to isolate soy protein. In the U.S., most of the soybean crop has been genetically modified.
