The soya bean (Glycine max) is a species of legume native to East Asia. The plant is classed as an oilseed rather than a pulse. It is an annual plant that has been used in China for 5,000 years as a food and a component of drugs. Soya contains significant amounts of all the essential amino acids for humans, which makes soy a good protein source. The plant is sometimes referred to as greater bean or edamame, though the latter is more commonly used in English when referring to a specific dish. The English word soya is derived from the Japanese pronunciation of shoyu, the Japanese word for Soya sauce; soya comes from the Dutch adaptation of the same word. Soya beans are an important source of vegetable oil and protein world wide. Soya products are the main ingredients in many meat and dairy substitutes. They are also used to make soya sauce, and the oil is used in many industrial applications. The main producers of soy are the United States, Brazil, Argentina, China and India. The beans contain significant amounts of alpha-linolenic acid also called Omega-3 fatty acid, and the isoflavones genistein and daidzein. The most important point regarding the use of soya beans for human nutrition is the absolute necessity to cook the soya bean with "wet" heat in order to destroy the trypsin inhibitors; serine protease inhibitors. It is not advisable to eat raw soya beans. Soya beans are considered by many agencies, including the US Food and Drug Administration, to be a source of complete protein. A complete protein is one that contains significant amounts of all the essential amino acids that must be provided to the human body because of the body's inability to synthesise them. For this reason, soya is a good source of protein, amongst many others, for many vegetarians and vegans or for people who cannot afford meat. According to the FDA, "Soya protein products can be good substitutes for animal products because, unlike some other beans, soya offers a "complete" protein profile. Soybeans contain all the amino acids essential to human nutrition, which must be supplied in the diet because they cannot be synthesised by the human body. Soya protein products can replace animal-based foods-which also have complete proteins but tend to contain more fat, especially saturated fat-without requiring major adjustments elsewhere in the diet." Because soya beans contain no starch, they are a good source of protein for diabetics.

Split peas are the dried peeled and split seeds of Pisum sativum. They come in yellow and green varieties. They have been mechanically split so that they will cook faster. Yellow split peas are sometimes wrongly referred to as a synonym for the Indian toor dal (split pigeon peas) or chana dal (split yellow gram, chickpeas or garbanzo beans); while all commonly known as peas the latter are from other legume species. Split peas are a great source of protein. Green and yellow split peas are commonly used to make pea soup, and sometimes pease pudding. Yellow split peas are used to make a sweet snack in Beijing cuisine. Wandouhuang is a sweetened and chilled pease pudding, sometimes flavoured with osmanthus blossoms and dates. A refined version of this snack is said to be a favorite of Empress Dowager Cixi.

The sultana (also called the sultanina or sultaninini) is a type of white, seedless grape of Turkish, Greek or Iranian origin. In some countries, it is also the name given to the raisin made from it; such sultana raisins are often called simply sultanas or sultanis. These are typically larger than the currants made from Zante grapes, but smaller than "normal" raisins. Sultana raisins have a delicate and unique flavour and are especially noted for their sweetness and golden colour. The sultana raisin was traditionally imported to the English-speaking world from the Ottoman Empire. According to popular folklore from the Empire, the sultana was invented when the Sultan left his grapes in the sun after fleeing a tiger attack, hence the name sultana, from the feminine form of sultan. Turkey and Australia are major producers. Raisins and Sultanas have been the object of phytonutrient research primarily for their unique phenol content; they are also one of the top sources of the trace mineral, boron.
