Al Rabie Saudi Food Company
In an initiative to generate awareness regarding soya drinks, Al Rabie Saudi Food Company participated in the scientific seminar held at the Kingdom Hospital in Riyadh recently. Dr. Mona Sanan, Consultant for Heath & Nutrition Services, delivered a presentation titled ‘Soya food: Potential biological effects and its relevance to human health’, for the medical and paramedical staff at the hospital.
Citing scientific evidence and meta analysis studies, Dr. Sanan highlighted that soya drinks are healthy and contribute to a healthy heart and bones. She added that consuming soya foods is beneficial in numerous ways. According to Dr. Sanan, soya contains the plant protein that supports bone formation and minimizes bone loss preventing the risk of osteoporosis.
- Consuming soya foods is good for the heart health. "Epidemiological studies suggest that consumption of soya foods is associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease", said Dr Sanan.
With an aim to provide healthy options in beverages to its consumers, Al Rabie recently launched ‘Al Rabie Joya’, a soya drink. The company said it will continue to invest and act proactively to provide the best nutritional food choices to its consumers. “It is our mission to set a benchmark in food quality and help cultivate a greater sense of responsibility among food manufacturers to offer products that are genuinely healthy,” said Dr Sanan.
“Nutritional foods are a fundamental concern in any society. We believe that people must have easy access to nutritious food products to meet their dietary needs,” she concluded.
