Soymilk

  • Soy milk is actually made from soybeans, a type of vegetable. It has been used for centuries by the Chinese and Japanese people in making their staple food which is the tofu.
  • Soy milk (also called soya milk, soymilk, soybean milk, or soy juice, although some do not believe soy to be a milk) and sometimes referred to as soy drink/beverage is a beverage made from soybeans.
  • Plain soy milk is unsweetened, although some soy milk products are sweetened. Salted soy milk is prevalent in China.
  • Soy milk has about the same amount of protein (though not the same amino acid profile) as cow's milk.
  • Natural soy milk contains little digestible calcium as it is bound to the bean's pulp, which is insoluble in humans.
  • Soy products contain sucrose as the basic disaccharide, which breaks down into glucose and fructose.
