(2003) demonstrated that isoflavonoids
found in soybean seeds arise either from de novo synthesis in embryos or are transported from maternal tissues such as the seed coat and other non-maternal tissues.

in non-leguminous taxa: a rarity or a rule?
Naturally occuring isoflavonoids
possess a variety of biological activities including anti-cancer effects.

The main herbivore-induced compounds in this cultivar are the flavonoid rutin and the isoflavonoid

According to Brouns, Van Nieuwenhoven, Jeukendrup, and Lichtenbelt (2002), the isoflavonoids
that are present in soybean products may reduce the free radical contents and have antioxidant properties in human health.
compounds extracted from Pueraria lobata suppress alcohol preference in a pharmacogenetic rat model of alchoholism.

Processing of soy therefore seems to affect isoflavonoid
metabolism and may need to be factored in when recommending exposure to isoflavones from soy foods.
