Earth-Friendly + Water Wise

Organic soybeans are next-level Earth-friendly amongst plant-based dips, besting the chickpeas, almonds and cashews proliferating the category. Soybeans use less than a tenth of water that almonds do and provide the highest usable grams of protein per acre of any crop (Bastyr University). The nitrogen-fixing abilities of soybeans also help restore soil health.
