Soy products may have a protective role against certain chronic diseases, including hormone-related cancers (Adlercreutz & Mazur, 1997). Soy product intake among Western societies is lower than in Asian populations. It is hypothesized that Western subjects consuming a meat-free diet also consume higher quantities of soy products. The aim of the study was to describe the distribution of soy product intake in European consumers of a health-conscious diet (meat-free diet) by using a standardized reference dietary method.
