Nutritional Balance of Standard Soymilk

Authors: Jose D Perezgonzalez

This article offers descriptive data regarding the nutritional balance of standard soymilk. These data were collected for a research on milk and milk alternatives in New Zealand between 2007 and 2008 (Perezgonzalez, 2008). Standard (original or regular) soymilk is made from soybeans and water, and contains around 3% fat. This article, however, analyzes the nutritional balance of standard soymilk beyond its fat content. Indeed, the average standard soymilk is high in fat but low in saturated fat, adequate in protein, low in carbohydrate but high in sugar, low in fiber, and within maximum recommended limits for sodium. On average, standard soymilk has a nutritional balance of BNI 43.16f, being particularly unbalanced towards excess of fat.
