Best Soy Milk Ever But....
....My family drinks a lot of Vitasoy and that means a lot of empties. We consume about six 1 litre bottles/cartons in two days, maybe more when making smoothies and I use Vitasoy when cooking. This creates excess time at the supermarket, excess annoyance when supermarket runs out, excess packaging, excess plastic. It would be greatly appreciated if Vitasoy Soy Milky Regular was available in 2 litre capacity. The benefits are there for families and the environment.
Best tasting non-dairy milk alternative that I've ever found
Most soy milks have a raw bean taste which most people dislike. Regular Soy Milky doesn't have much of this taste, so it tastes good in tea etc.
All almond milk and boxed coconut-based alternatives to milk that I've tried taste watery and/or awful.
The ingredients stated on the box are: Filtered water, whole soybeans (min. 14%), raw sugar, sunflower oil, mineral (calcium phosphate), natural flavour, sea salt.
It is a long-life product (presumably UHT?). I see there is also a refrigerated version in plastic bottles in the supermarkets. I thought...
It used to be good, now it's creepy with an aftertaste
It used to be good, now it is strangely white and leaves an aftertaste. Can't work out what they've done to it. It only changed recently but since then I haven't had a good soy cappuccino. Please change it back!
Purchased in January 2020.
Great flavour, love the milky taste!
As someone who normally dislikes soy milk I was pleasantly surprised with the flavour of this one. I found it easy to drink on its own or in tea/coffee. I normally have regular milk - light or skim however purchased soy to cater to a friends dairy allergy when they came to stay. In the past I had to have soy when breastfeeding to cater for my daughters allergy (which she has grown out of). I tried different brands and disliked the flavour of all. However found this one enjoyable to drink with a great flavour. It will definitely be the soy milk I purchase the next time I need some.
If you're looking for a soy milk that actually tastes good, look no further
Whether you're hopping on the vegan bandwagon or just looking for a dairy free milk alternative, vitasoy will be your friend.
You can try all sort of different soy milks or dairy free milks but vitasoy, I can guarantee is definitely one of the best in terms of texture and taste.
I've never looked back!
This Product also Contains potentially harmful Carrageenan
Although this product has a nice silky texture, it contains the potentially cancer causing ingredient Carrageenan.
Professor of clinical medicine at the University of Iowa, [name removed] says 'There is very good evidence in the animal studies that carrageenan poses a definite risk,' her review of 45 studies of the effects of the gum, also known as E407, has convinced her that it can cause gastro-intestinal cancers.
I actually contacted Vitasoy and was told they only use Food Grade Carrageenan and it is safe. End of story.....I have to admit, for some reason I didn't feel very comforted by that response. Food Grade Carrageenan, however, may also contain low levels of the Carcinogenic Degraded Form. March 2003: The European Commission's Scientific Committee on Food, reviews Tobacman's 2001 article, and reviews recent safety data on carrageenan. The Committee suggests that the amount of Degraded Carrageenan in Food-Grade Carrageenan be kept to levels below 5%, 2005: Marinalg, the industry trade group, tested 12 samples of food-grade carrageenan from a variety of suppliers in six different laboratories. The results from the industry's own test results are cause for serious concern with one sample found to contain 25% degraded carrageenan. [url removed]
vitasoy a favourite
This isn't something i personally drink but my son and his girlfriend are both into soy milk in a big way. They like it, and this is a preferred brand of theirs. They usually drink it in tea, coffee and use it over their cereal.
If you are after a reliable brand that tastes good, then this might be the one for you. I personally like to buy the long life milk as I can store it for a while without taking up fridge space. The container is a good shape, easy to fit in the door of the fridge.
Good taste, easy to store
Not always the cheapest.
