From this chapter, I learned that:

^ Soybeans consist of 20 percent oil and 40 percent protein. It is the second most widely grown crop in America.

^ It is the second most widely grown crop in America.

    1. I can’t remember when I last ate beans and I think I tried soy milk once and didn’t like it. Memory is kind of hazy at the moment.
