As you look down the aisle of your local supermarket, there is no doubt you have noticed the array of options when it comes to milk-like drinks and substitutes. From soy to almond and even rice milk, it is sometimes difficult to know which one to choose, if any. Looking to try something new and healthy? Soy milk could be the answer. Here are some pointers about this cool concoction.
- Soy milk is made from cooked and pressed soybeans; it is often used as a milk substitute.
- Plain soy milk can be used in place of cow's milk in various recipes such as puddings, soups, and sauces.
- If you opt to utilize soy milk instead of cow's milk, it can affect the taste of the end product - so utilize caution. You can try replacing half of the cow's milk with soy milk to be on the safe side.
- Soy milk is available in many flavors and varieties: low-fat, fat-free, fortified, chocolate, vanilla, etc.
- Soy milk is high in protein, low in saturated fats, and cholesterol free.
- Individuals who are lactose intolerant can use soy milk in their favorite recipes.
- Soy milk can sometimes curdle… so caution must be taken when adding it to acidic foods.
