Soft commodities are generally agricultural products that are grown or bred for human consumption, as opposed to those that are mined. Soft commodities are traded on futures markets where people speculate on price fluctuations as supply and demand changes. Examples of soft commodities include coffee, corn, cotton, orange juice, soy bean oil, and wheat.
