    Ummm... It's soy. No go.

    If it has soy in the ingredients, it is not okay.

    Edit: Beaten to the punch.

    Anything made from soy is not primal. Soy is a bean AND it has some hormonal effects (particularly when not fermented) that some believe are unhealthy. A processed soy like soya-mince is even less primal than snacking on the raw beans. Just eat real food.

    It's from a legume. Legumes, by definition, are NOT primal. So that'd be a great big NAY.
    Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.

    "Soya" is just the UK term for "soy"

    It's cheap because it is probably the waste protein from making soya oil. I guess they found that vegetarians will pay more for it that hog farmers. Are man boobs an added bonus?
