Soy protein is a balanced plant proteins at par with egg and milk proteins.
Soy protein causes less calcium to be excreted from the body when compared to animal protein thus helping in development of bones.
The volume for soybean oil in the ink varies between manufacturers and is dependent on the application of the ink.

  Soybean
Soy oil is used to manufacture margarine, vegetable oil, salad dressing and mayonnaise, and is used as a carrier in inks and paints, as well as a synthetic diesel fuel.
Soy protein has been eaten in the Orient for centuries in the form of tofu and is also used in soy milk and in soy flour.
Although soy ink is not entirely biodegradable because of the pigment content (made from metallic oxides), the soybean oil in the ink is biodegradable, unlike petroleum inks.

 Ink Summary
An ink is a liquid containing various pigments and/or dyes used for colouring a surface to render an image or text.
Walnut ink and iron-gall nut ink were made and used by many of the early masters to obtain the golden brown ink used for drawing.
The latter is particularly suited to inks that are used in non-industrial settings (and thus must conform to tighter toxicity and emission controls), such as inkjet printer inks, include coating the paper with a charged coating.

 Soy ink - Questions and answers
Soy ink is very similar to "regular" printing ink, except that it contains varying amounts of soybean oil instead of petroleum oil.
In addition, soy ink is recycling-friendly: it is removed more effectively during de-inking, and the resulting waste is not considered hazardous and can be treated more easily, completely and cost-effectively.
Soy ink for commercial printing is comparably priced with petroleum-based ink, as is color news ink containing soybean oil.

Soy oil inks, which represent the environmentally friendly products, are offset inks that use natural soy oil as a solvent and contain no aromatic compounds (aroma free).
This ink has comparable performance to the toluene type, and also exhibits stable adhesiveness and good lamination since a great improvement has been made in printing effects such as dot reproductivity on highlighted parts and the printability with less hazing.
Our selection includes conductive ink for lowering costs of the film electric circuit, luminescent ink applied by nocturnal materials, scratch ink that are well-known for the peeling lottery, aroma ink that emits fragrance when scratched, heat-sensitive ink that changes color by temperature, and embossing varnish that heightens the design of offset printed materials.

 EPA Project Summary: Waste Reduction Evaluation of Soy-based Ink at Sheet-fed Offset Printer   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-21)
Just in terms of ink used, there were 0.39 g/sheets of volatile emissions from the petroleum inks compared to 0.23 g/100 sheets for the soy inks.
Since the inks and cleaners continuously evaporate during use and the waste inks and cleaners end up mixed together in washup trays and on the cleanup rags, it was difficult to determine the proportion that evaporated during the actual printing process.
The main environmental advantage with soy inks is that they release less than 20% of the mass of volatile organic chemicals compared to petroleum inks.
