Soy Milk.

Browse By

Soy milk is made with either soybeans or soy protein isolate. And often contains thickeners and vegetable oils to improve taste food and consistency.

It typically has a mild and creamy flavor. However, the taste can vary between brands. It works best as a substitute for cow’s milk in savory dishes, with coffee or on top of cereal.

One cup (240 ml) of unsweetened soy milk contains 80–90 calories, 4–4.5 grams of fat, 7–9 grams of protein and 4 grams of carbohydrates.UFABET 

In terms of nutrition, soy milk is a close nondairy substitute for cow’s milk. It contains a similar amount of protein, but around half the number of calories, fats and carbohydrates.

It is also one of the few plant-based sources of high-quality “complete” protein, which provides all the essential amino acids. These are the amino acids that cannot be produced by the body and must be obtained from the diet.

On the other hand, soy has become one of the world’s most controversial foods, and people are often concerned over its effects in the body.

This is mostly because of the large amounts of isoflavones in soy. These can affect estrogen receptors in the body and affect the function of hormones.

While this topic is widely debated, there is no conclusive evidence to suggest. That moderate amounts of soy or soy milk will cause harm in otherwise healthy adults.

Lastly, soy milk made from soybeans is not recommended for people with a FODMAP intolerance or who are in the elimination phase of the low-FODMAP diet.

FODMAPs are a type of short-chain carbohydrate naturally present in some foods. They can cause digestive issues such as gas and bloating.

However, soy milk made from soy protein isolate can be consumed as an alternative.
