Fortified soy milk is a wonderful source of cow-friendly calcium, vitamin B12, and other nutrients. But how can one choose from the plethora of brands that crowd the store shelves? In this installment of our continuing series on nutrition, the authors discuss their favourite brands of soy milk.
vegetable95: In the breakfast department I see no other choice than Light Silk for your cereal. Light silk is the cow teat free cousin of skim milk, lacking the overwhelming creamy richness of other kinds of soy milk. As an added bonus, the company that produces it purchases wind power credits, internalizing production externalities, and thereby making your soy milk consumption more economically efficient.
Another big part of my liquid soy lifestyle is hot chocolate, which I shamelessy purchase from evil coffee corp intl. Unsurprisingly, both Starbucks and Second Cup play a role in the systematic oppression of the vegan people by charging extra for soy milk. Both produce a tasty chocolate beverage though.
therecreationalvegan: Soy chocolate milk is a pretty serious matter for me, likely a result of a childhood love for chocolate milk. I had given up on the product because of it’s all too often chalky taste… until I discovered Natura chocolate soy, a surprisingly creamy/smooth and delicious drink. Blend with ice, plain soy milk, vanilla, and frozen bananas for a healthy treat.
