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?

Vegetable Gum 407
I used to love Soy Milky - until I was told that Vegetable Gum 407 (which this product contains) is another term for carrageenan. If you don't know what carrageenan is ... Google it ... this emulsifying (thickening) ingredient isn't good for your body.
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]
