The Soy Nutrition Institute (SNI) was formed to assist the U.S. soybean industry in collecting and disseminating soy-related nutrition information based on responsible scientific research. This information is obtained through either primary or secondary research projects and can include market research into consumer views and understanding of matters related to soy nutrition. In addition, SNI encourages and promotes harmony and cooperation among those in the domestic soybean industry and those with other assets that may assist in the growth of the industry through the communication of soy’s nutritional benefits, and to carry out such administrative, financial, management, and other functions as are necessary and appropriate for the accomplishment of the purposes of the SNI.
