How to Invest in Soybeans
The soybean is a legume native to Asia, known for an edible bean that is an efficient source of protein. Soybeans are used in the production of numerous foods, including soybean oil, soy meal, and various meat and dairy substitutes.
Soybeans have some appeal as investable assets, though many prefer to employ other agricultural commodities to hedge against rising food prices.
Options for investors seeking exposure to soybeans are somewhat limited; though this commodity is included in several ETFs, there are no pure play options available. There is a market for soybean futures that allows pure play exposure.
