A house made from soybeans debuts at the Royal

The Ontario Soybean Growers (OSG) have found a homey way to showcase the many consumer products from soybeans at this year’s Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto.

It’s called Soy House, an entire two-bedroom bungalow made and furnished with as many soy-based products as possible. Everything from the insulation, carpet under-padding, paint, kitchen cupboards, bedding and soy foam in furniture to components and fluids in the car parked in Soy House’s garage has soybeans in them. Even the potted plants inside are soybeans, says Dale Petrie, OSG general manager.
