U.S. soybeans have long been a mainstay for industrial uses, tracing back to the 1930s, when carmaker Henry Ford funded a laboratory to find industrial uses for abundant and sustainable U.S. soybeans. U.S. soybean farmers support innovative research and, today, U.S. Soy derivatives are employed for a number of uses including car seat cushions, rubber, plastic, lubricants, candles, and even crayons. U.S. Soy is not only sustainably produced, it’s also versatile and has a favorable environmental impact. Watch to learn more how useful this little bean can be.
