This is a non-animal derived milk often used as substitute for other milks by vegans and by those allergic to any form of dairy milk. It is made frim pulverized soya beans, is suitable for both cooking and drinking, and is used to make yogurt, creams and cheese. Soya milk is interchangeable with cows milk, although it has a slightly thicker consistency and nutty flavor that is quite different. It also trends to curdle in very hot tea or coffee.
Some soya milk has added sugar, so it is advisable to check, the label before buying. Chocolate – and fruit- flavored soya milk, and versions fortified with extra vitamins and calcium, are widely available in health food shops and larger supermarkets.
