Soy milk is nondairy, a plant-based beverage made out of soybeans. It's packed with nutrients, and it stands out among other types of milk like almond and oats, and here's why.
Soy milk contains lots of protein, fiber, a little bit of naturally occurring sugar (not added), carbs, and fat. Organic soy milk has no residues from a toxic pesticide called Glyphosate, which is toxic to human bodies. Non-GMO soy is not free from this toxic chemical.
It's the only plant-based milk that contains all nine amino acids, and it is most similar to low fat cow milk. Coconut milk has almost no protein and a lot of saturated fat, while almond, rice, and oat milk have much less than soy milk.
Soy milk is a power station of health benefits and nutrients. It can help you reduce the risk of heart disease, osteoporosis, cancer, and kidney failure. It also helps in lowering blood cholesterol, as it contains none. Promoting weight loss is also one of the top benefits of soy milk.
All the studies that say it's not, were conducted with rats and not humans. Soy milk is safe to drink, and it can only aid your medical issues and keep you healthy. Unless you are allergic to soy, it is a traditional healthy food when consumed in moderation. Make sure you are drinking pure soymilk without added sugar, thickeners or artificial flavors which could cause many health issues by themselves.
According to the American Institute for Cancer Research, you can consume 1-2 servings per day, whether it is soy milk or tofu stir-fry.
Anyone who's not allergic to soy can enjoy a soy milk smoothie for breakfast. They are also wonderful in coffee, tea, baking cookies, cakes, protein snacks, and ice creams.
