Plastic bottle change: a reply
I have seen that some people are complaining about the plastic bottles. I just want to address this by saying that yes, we need to reduce our plastic usage, and yes this would generally be seen as a step in the wrong direction.
But Tetra packs - which basically all long life milk comes in, are actually three or more layers of different components (laminated paper, aluminised plastic foil, thin LDPE soft plastic inner, hard polypropylene lid) make it really difficult to actually recycle. It is actually considered a contaminant. Some councils w...ill recycle it and just accept that it increases the contanimanion content, others are trying to reduce their contanimanion rate to increase quality of their end recycled product. I'd actually go for the plastic bottle over tetra-pak. Glass would be the best, but it's heavy and increases shipping costs and emissions. It's a tricky one! As for this product, I find it pretty good for a person who doesn't actually like the taste of soy that much. I'm glad they have reduced the additives.

Vitasoy Soy Milky
The taste is great, not like other soy milk. Healthy, with lots of calcium. Best of all, no cow or calf has suffered in the making of it, fantastic!
Purchased for $2.
One of the few soy milks that do not add oil and other fillers, and uses organic whole soy beans. Great tasting too.
Purchased at Woolworths for $2.50.
Great tasting and healthy
Vitasoy lite is great tasting, terrific on Weetbix in the morning, I find better than cow's milk of any %fat, very settling for digestion.. I was concerned about mentions on this board about additive E407, which I did used to see listed, but no more. It looks like Vitasoy has responded to the concerns and removed?

Why plastic bottles!
I have used Vitasoy calci-plus for years now and though I realize the cartons must also contain plastic I'm sure the bottles contain more, so why convert to them? I may have to buy something else now as the long life alternative does not last as long!

New plastic bottle
When everybody is trying to eliminate plastic you change the carton container to a plastic bottle. You have done the wrong thing. I will never buy your products again. Do you know about CLIMATE CHANGE?

The best quality on the market and very well priced. This company knows what it is doing. I have been purchasing their products for years now because I know they don skimp on quality.

Unlike previous Vitasoy soy milk products this product is not made from Whole Organic Soybeans
Vitasoy Soy Milky Lite Soy has been suggested as an alternative to the now discontinued Vitasoy Reduced Fat Soy Milk that I have been using for 10 or so years. But unlike their now discontinued product Vitasoy Soy Milky Lite is not made from Whole Organic Soybeans something that was a plus for me and an important reason why I chose Vitasoy
There is a tasteless soymilk
Growing up I've used to drink this brand name in breakfast since I was a child in Hong Kong, unfortunately, the soymilk here is tasteless even with the same name. I prefer to buy the other brand names that carry in the grocery stores there in China town it is more expensive but worth the price.
I have tried all the soy milks and Vitasoy Soy Milky Lite is by far the Best and the tastiest. It is so popular that it is often almost sold out at my Woolworths supermarket. No other soy milk has the low carbs and tastes this good.
Almond Milk unsweetened
Love the taste of this after comparing to other brands and after much back and forwarding with the company this product does not contain carrageenan Also this is one of the very few that doesn’t curdle in your coffee.
My kids love it!
I am lactose intolerant but my kids are not. So I had to teach them to still drink milk, I usually Vitasoy to set an example and I find them it very light. My kids also love the taste so I am not worried that it would cause them any tummy ache. Plant milk and cow's milk has no difference at all!
Good alternative to light A2 milk
Also more creamy, same price .. Good with cereal also Rolled oats (porridge)& will stick with it for a longer trial!.will recommend .
Best tasting soy milk, problem with the carton
I'm pretty intolerant to dairy products so I've used this for a long time and really like it for all uses.
The current batch is a bit of a problem. When I succeed in twisting the top off a new carton, it sometimes comes loose or comes right off. I can hear a tearing sound and know I have a problem.
So now I open a new carton before I discard the old one, and funnel it into the old one if necessary.
I've just written to them about it - maybe I'll get a reply.
FOOTNOTE: Since I posted this I've had a call from Vitasoy for more information, and an assurance they will send me a supermarket gift card as compensation.
Loved it until I realized it has carageenan.
I'm usually cautious about using anything that has numbers in the ingredients, but somehow I managed to miss them when I decided this was my new favourite. Back to the drawing board with find an alternative.
Questions & Answers
I've been drinking soymilky for years now, lately the taste has changed which isn't as nice. Has it changed ?
I've noticed that too, but only with the shelf milk. The refrigerated one is fine.
I have not been able to buy Vitasoy Protein Plus for several weeks. Is it discontinued?
I found it via a basic web search
Where can i buy this from..?
Hi briony, I usually buy mine in UHT form from the supermarket but I've noticed they're now doing a cold form in the normal milk section! Hope that helps :)
Most supermarkets stock it, and if your local one doesn't, just ask them to get it in for you. By the way, I now prefer the Vitasoy Creamy Original :))
Coles and Woolworths both have it.
