What are the benefits of consuming soy protein?
Consumption of soy protein in place of animal protein has been found to reduce serum concentrations of total cholesterol, low-density lipoproteins (LDLs), and trigylcerides (Arliss & Biermann, 2002; Morrison & Hark, 1999). Soy in your diet can lower cholesterol. Many research studies support this claim. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) agrees that 25 grams per day of soy protein may reduce the risk of heart disease. Health benefits of soy products may be due to their high levels of polyunsaturated fats, fiber, minerals, vitamins, and low saturated fat content.

Can soy protein increase uric acid levels and cause gout?
Soyfoods have long been a part of traditional Asian diets; they provide plentiful amounts of high-quality protein and have a favorable fatty acid profile. In addition, provocative research suggests soyfoods offer health benefits independent of the nutrients they provide. However, there is a widely-held belief among Asian health professionals and the public that soyfoods increase risk of gout and potentially precipitate acute attacks in patients with this disease. Data from the five human intervention studies evaluated indicate soy protein does elevate serum uric levels, but in response to amounts comparable to Asian intake, the expected rise would almost certainly be clinically irrelevant. Although there is a need for long-term research, on the basis of the existing data there is no reason for individuals with gout or at risk of developing gout to avoid soyfoods.

Soyfoods are also sometimes considered to be contraindicated for patients with gout because they can be high in purines.  However, epidemiologic research has shown that plant proteins are not a risk factor for gout. In fact, the British Society for Rheumatology and British Health Professionals in Rheumatology recommends that gout patients consume soyfoods and other vegetable sources of protein. This recommendation is consistent with clinical studies showing soy protein doesn’t substantially increase serum uric acid levels.

If you have experienced a gout attack or have high uric acid in your blood (hyperuricemia), it may help to reduce your intake of meat, seafood, and alcohol.

What are the effects of FOS and inulin as Dietary Fibers?
Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) and inulin are found naturally in chicory root. Both are fructo-polysaccharides, comprised of glucose-fructose subunits. Since FOS and inulin are indigestible by our bodies, they get transported to the large intestine where they feeds microbes and promote fermentation. FOS and inulin have been dubbed as a "prebiotic", essentially serving as fertilizers for the bacteria in the colon. Certain lactobacillus species of bacteria have been shown to preferentially ferment FOS and inulin. For this reason, they are being promoted as supplements to feed the good bacteria in the gut.
What are the differences between FOS and inulin?
Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) are linear chains of fructose that range from 2 to 60 units and often terminate in a glucose unit. Since FOS are shorter polymers, these will feed only the ascending colon.
On the other hand, inulin which is a longer polymer, will feed more probiotics because it can reach the transverse and descending colon. Inulin is a term applied to a heterogeneous blend of fructose polymers found widely distributed in nature as plant storage carbohydrates.
