For a long time I have been using rice milk in my cereal and oatmeal as well as using it in any recipes that call for milk. However, when my son became old enough to drink milk, I wanted to switch to soy milk for the higher protein content. As the result of the sale I decided to try out some Westsoy Organic Plain Soy Milk.
This was the first time that I had tried this soy milk. I use to regularly have soy milk on hand so I was very familiar with the taste, or at least the taste of the Silk brand soy milk. I thought that the taste that this soy milk had was good but I also thought that it had a distinct taste that I was more mellow in the previous soy milk that I had tried before. Although this did not bother me and I didn’t look at it as a negative thing I wondered how my son would feel about it. As a two year old he isn’t completely open to all tastes but he definitely is less picky than most toddlers, still I wasn’t sure how he would feel about this new taste.
He didn’t complain when I gave him a bowl of cereal with the Westsoy Organic Plain Soy Milk. This did not surprise me nor did it disappoint me as my son had never been much of a fan of drinking rice milk either unless it was vanilla flavored. Keeping all this in mind I decided to get this soy milk again the next time that we went shopping. At three one quart containers for five dollars I thought that it was a fair price and a great way to get some calcium and protein among other nutrients.
I am very fond of looking over the nutrition facts of the foods and beverages that I buy for me and my son. In a cup of the soy milk there was ninety calories with thirty calories from fat. There was only one hundred and twenty-five milligrams of sodium and forty grams of potassium. There was six grams of sugars and seven grams of both carbohydrates and protein in this soy milk as well as twenty-five percent listed for phosphorus, riboflavin and vitamins A, D and E. Also listed was thirty percent for calcium and ten percent for both iron and magnesium. I was pleased with what I saw in the Westsoy Organic Plain Soy Milk’s nutrition and ingredients.
The ingredients in this soy milk are filtered water, organic soy milk made of more filtered water and whole organic soybeans, organic dehydrated cane juice, tricalcium, phosphate, sea salt, natural flavors, carrageenan, vitamins E, A, and D, and riboflavin. I think that I will continue to get this brand of organic soy milk as long as it is on sale. One quart has about four servings of soy milk, or four cups of soy milk. We go through a couple containers a week and since this brand is the cheapest I’ve found, I am happy to get it. I would recommend for anyone who likes soy milk to give it a try.
