DALLAS, April 11 — Sun Soy® soymilk is proud to announce
its third annual partnership with the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation
supporting 16 local Komen Race For The Cure® events throughout the United
These cities include San Diego; Dallas; Phoenix; Houston; Denver;
Baltimore; New York City; Portland, Ore.; Seattle; Washington, D.C.;
Philadelphia; Pittsburgh; Peoria, Ill.; Detroit; Minneapolis/St. Paul; and
St. Louis.

Sun Soy will have a booth at these 16 Races for participants to experience
the great taste of Sun Soy with a free sample, valuable coupons, and a drawing
for free one-year magazine subscriptions.
Consumers can register for each
race by using the Komen Race For The Cure® link on .

“One in eight women is at risk of developing breast cancer,” says Bing
Graffunder, president and chief operating officer of Morningstar Foods Inc.,
maker of Sun Soy.
“Whether a mother or grandmother, sister or aunt, wife or
daughter, every woman is at risk.
Sun Soy is committed to ending this battle
through our local support of the Komen Race For The Cure®.”

In 1999, the FDA stated that consuming 25 grams of soy protein daily, as
part of a diet that is low in saturated fat and cholesterol, can help reduce
the risk of heart disease.*
In addition, research has shown that isoflavones,
a naturally occurring plant chemical in soy, are particularly effective in the
fight against hormone-dependent tumors like those found in breast cancer.
Isoflavones have effects that are similar to the female hormone estrogen.
Soy contains 6.25 grams of soy protein and 33 milligrams of isoflavones per
eight-ounce serving.

“Drinking Sun Soy is a simple part of a healthy lifestyle, and we are
proud to be associated with Komen Race For The Cure® in promoting health
maintenance in local communities,” said Graffunder.

Sun Soy is a non-dairy, lactose-free, low-fat and cholesterol free drink
made with organic ingredients.
It comes in four delicious flavors including
Creamy Original, Vanilla, Chocolate and new Coffee Latte.
The product carries
the American Heart Association certification seal as a low-fat, low-
cholesterol “heart healthy” product.

  • Statement made by the FDA in October 1999.
