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.

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!
Purchased in April 2019.
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.
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!
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.
Love my soy milk!
I recently came of some medication after a year of being on it to find that I couldn't drink cows milk anymore as I'd become intolerant to the cows milk protein. I was fairly content drinking black tea and coffee but craved the creaminess back in my coffee so one day went and purchased a soy milk cappuccino and since then I've converted! I tried the vitasoy regular soy milky purely because it was on special at Coles and I haven't turned back! I can't choose if I like the vitasoy original milk or the regular soy milky better so I always keep bot...h in the cupboard and alternate lol seriously tho the best thing I ever did was purchase that litre of UHT soy that day. I can now drink milk in my coffee again without spending 2 days in agony with severe belly pain! I love drinking it straight from the carton too as it doesn't have an overly powerful soy taste, just a very mild one which I actually love! I'm now even making soy berry smoothies in the morning too! Thank you vitasoy for the amazing product! Everything! The taste, the creaminess, the no cholesterol and high in b2&b12 Nothing! Some people say it's too expensive but for me, I can't put a price on being able to have milk daily with no adverse reaction to my belly and health
Great soya milk....bad service!
This milk is SO tasty, but unfortunately, their customer service department is almost non-existant?! I was having somewhat of an issue with the opening tab, in that it often broke off before fully opening. Tried emailing regarding all this, but never received a reply. Very unfortunate really, and they're actually shooting their self in the foot...because I will keep using it, but will not recommend it to any of my friends.
Opening tab...customer service!!!!!!!!
Was never a fan of soy milk but after some persistent stomach problems my doctor recommended i switch to soy milk.. tried a couple of other brands and then a friend suggested vitasoy. Happy to say that I am now officially converted. Great taste! LOVE!! Thanks so much guys - painless switch to soy now!
After struggling with stomach problems my specialist put me on to vitasoy light. I have not looked back. No more stomach issues. My main problem is its mot always available in my area. It is a tad more expensive BUT well worth it
Long fridge life. Best and only soy milk to buy
The taste. Texture.
Vitasoy Milky Lite Soy contains Carrageenan
I've been using Vitasoy Lite for quite a while now since transitioning from dairy milk for health reasons.
I find the taste quite close to "normal" milk and is quite yummy.
However... I've since found out it contains Carrageenan, which might not be very good for you.
Of particular concern are the results of the break down products of this ingredient in the acid of the stomach when digesting this stuff.
I'm a bit worried now, I'll have to find an alternative and go through the all ingredients l...
Questions & Answers
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 :))
