This is a sequel to our earlier paper presenting a supersymmetric Nambu–Jona–Lasinio (NJL)-type model for a real superfield composite. The model in the simplest version has only a chiral superfield (multiplet), with a strong four-superfield interaction in the Kähler potential that induces a real two-superfield composite with vacuum condensate. The latter can have supersymmetry breaking parts, which we have shown to bear nontrivial solutions under a standard nonperturbative analysis for a Nambu–Jona–Lasinio-type model on a superfield setting. In this article, we generalize our earlier analysis by allowing a supersymmetric mass term for the chiral superfield, as well as possible θ2 components for the soft supersymmetry breaking part of the condensate. We present admissible nontrivial vacuum solutions and an analysis of the resulted low energy effective theory with components of the composite becoming dynamical. The determinant of the fermionic modes is shown to be zero, illustrating the presence of the expected Goldstino.
