About soy milk

Friday, April 20, 2012

Each time I read yet another article or see another person on Dr. Oz tell us about the high probability of allergic reactions to cow's milk, I try another brand of soy milk--and can't quite adjust to the taste, even though I only have it in cereal and coffee.

So today I was in the dairy section about to try the vanilla almond milk my daughter (a milk hater) gave her OK to, when I saw a lady reaching for the store brand organic soy milk (Meijer). I told her about my never having found a good one, and she said she'd had the same eperience until she'd tried this one. I was skeptical, but she was positive, so I bought it. She was right. It tastes fine. It's a keeper.

So if you've been like me--so sure the best tasting ones (of anything) would be the brand name one, think again. And save some money besides. Thankfully this store is stocking more and more organic products under its brand. It's a midwest store, but I'll bet your area stores are doing the same.

Save your money, and save your kidneys from having to clean out all that toxicity--they have enough to do, poor things.

Spark on. emoticon

    LOL to the side effect. But supposedly so does eating extra vegetables. I don't know if that's true but its not going to stop me. :-)

    Well, an unfortunate update is that after really enjoying the soy milk for 2 days, I have discovered a side-effect that I didn't know about--soy produces awful gas! So I guess I'll have to try the almond milk next.

    I'm glad that you found a brand of soy milk that you like. I prefer almond milk, and try to get the one that doesn't have carrageenan, like Silk Almond milk. It's important to check the label. emoticon

    I'll have to check that one out - thanks! I love the 40 calorie per cup, unsweetened, vanilla almond milk - I use it every day! Even buy it when I travel; very tasty!
