Soy is good food and only if the soy is fermented. Fermentation causes the bad substances disappear and produce substances that are good for health.
This led to know less well taken because they know not experiencing fermentation

Examples of fermented soybean products

1. Tempe, is a soybean paste fermented soybean cake with a firm texture, taste like mushrooms.
2. Miso, a fermented soybean paste with a salty, buttery texture (commonly used in miso soup).
3. Natto, fermented soybeans with a sticky texture and strong, taste like cheese.
4. Soy sauce, traditionally made by fermenting soybeans, salt and enzymes; wary because many varieties on the market today are made artificially using a chemical process.
5. Soy sauce

Vitamin K2: One of the benefits of Fermented Soybean

One of the key benefits of fermented soybean, natto in particular, is that it is the best food sources of vitamin K2. Vitamin K2 is essential to prevent osteoporosis, heart disease, and brain diseases such as dementia, and protect you from a variety of cancers including prostate, lung, liver and leukemia.

Vitamin K acts synergistically with vitamin D to keep you healthy.

Vitamin K is sometimes referred to as the "forgotten vitamin" because the benefits are often ignored. It is named after the word "coagulation," to reflect an important role in blood clotting. In fact, nattokinase, an enzyme derived from natto, safer and more potent than aspirin in dissolving blood clots, and has been used safely for over 20 years.

If you enjoy natto fermented soybeans or some other food, you can get a few milligrams of vitamin K2 from them every day (this rate far exceeds the amount of vitamin K2 is found even in dark green vegetables).
