Modifications in the structure of soybean proteins can enhance functional properties compared to natural proteins [19].
Soybean proteins considered the best among other plant proteins due to as: 1) provides a good balance in amino acid composition, since all the essential amino acids are confined, 2) contains physiologically beneficial components which are shown to lower the cholesterol, and reduce the risk of hyperlipidemia and cardiovascular diseases, 3) has excellent processing ability such as gelling, emulsifying ability and water and oil- holding capacity.
Clinolipid should not be used in patients with a known hypersensitivity to egg or soybean proteins, or in those with severe disorders of lipid metabolism (hyperlipidemia).
Moreover, the investigators have shown that the fermentation of soybean proteins reduces soybean's immunoreactivity toward human IgE, through the removal of epitopes (parts of antigens) present in the native soybean protein.

As you may know, soybean proteins are divided into three basic groups: soy flours, which are about 50% protein; soy concentrate, which is about 70% protein; and soy protein isolate, which is about 90% protein.
