Hi, you all-
I'm the vegan outreach person for SoCal CEA How. There's good news and bad news: the good news is that the volume of calls and emails from abstinent vegans is increasing. The bad news is that my answer to a frequently asked question is lame. Maybe someone can help.
When asked, "Why is soy flour not considered abstinent?" my stock response is "Well, to me soy flour is about as much a grain as cauliflower, but I just obey the food plan because it works for me and nothing else has."
But there MUST be a more scientific explanation somewhere, somehow...isn't there? None of us are hankering for soy flour in bread-like substances, but it's been ten years since I've had a decent tuna substitute. Here is the link to the one I liked: http://www.dixiediner.com/tuna-salad-p-92.html
Can anyone help? I think I'll ask the Santa Fe Springs office...
