The Soy Milk Taste Test

I as most people, have heard all the hype about how anything organic is better for you than non organic products, so I thought I would give the organic products a try. I picked a product that I thought would be well suited for the “tasting”…I turned my attention to soymilk. “Soymilk offers many health benefits”  and is lactose free, so I decided to try it.

I tried SOY Dream Soymilk in vanilla “classic” flavor. It had a very bland taste and was not sweet in any way, and it was SUPER watery, it reminded me a lot of a diet protein shake. It does however offer a good source of soy protein, soy isoflavones, a wonderful amount of iron; copper; folic acid; magnesium; and thiamin (vitamin B1), it is cholesterol free, and 100% vegetarian. However I was upset to find that it had just as much fat as low fat milk and contained just as many vitamins and minerals as the low fat milk, I guess the real selling point IS the fact that it is organic, lactose free, and suitable for vegetarians.

I will stick to buying low fat regular milk for my family as I don’t feel we are missing much by drinking the non organic and we are saving a couple bucks along the way ;-) Not worth buying unless you are into the organic thing and then even so I might add a little splenda to the cup :-D ENJOY
