Technical Abstract: The invention is related to the preparation of an ionic polymer composition containing soy spent flakes, defatted soy flour, or soy protein concentrate composite reinforcement. The composite composition is formed by incorporating soy spent flakes, defatted soy flour, or soy protein concentrate composition with ionic polymers. The composites have a significantly higher elastic modulus when compared with base polymer. The elastic modulus of defatted soy flour or soy protein concentrate composite is higher than the elastic modulus of soy protein/ionic polymer composite or soy spent flakes/ionic polymer composite.
