Soy milk is a replacement
for real milk
, for those who either can't stomach lactose
or are vegan
. Soy milk contains no animal fat
(so no cholesterol
) and actually has fiber
, unlike regular milk. Brands include Edensoy
(this author prefers the former).
Dr. Weil (drweil.com) claims that drinking soy milk is a way of "getting all the benefits of cow
's milk, without the problems"
A web page extolling the benefits of soy
can be found at http://www.mayohealth.org/mayo/9705/htm/soy.htm
Soy milk can be made at home by adding 1 part soy flour
ed) to 3 parts boiling water
, simmering for 20 minutes, and straining.
