Food Review: Whole Soy Yogurt

If you're watching your cholesterol intake, are lactose intolerant, or are concerned about the connection between milk and acne, then you may be looking for alternatives to the dairy products you love. If you're a fan of yogurt, check out this Whole Soy yogurt. Not only is it free of saturated fat, cholesterol, and lactose, but it's also gluten free. Don't worry — even though it's made with soy instead of milk, it still contains live active cultures, which are so good for your digestive system.

So how does it taste and compare nutritionally to other kinds of yogurt? If you're curious then


Here's the nutritional info of one 6 oz. cup of yogurt.

If you're used to regular cow's milk yogurt, then Whole Soy yogurt will definitely be a change. When you take your first bite, it tastes more sweet than tangy. The consistency is a little different too. It's not as runny as regular yogurt can be, but I really enjoyed the thick and smooth quality. Plus I liked that it wasn't at all gritty or chalky, like some soy products can be. The flavor is very mild, so it's perfect if you like to mix in fruit, nuts, or granola. Although it contains more calories than cow's milk yogurt, it also contains less sodium and sugar. I was also surprised to see that compared to regular yogurt and another brand of soy yogurt, Whole Soy contains the most calcium.

This yogurt is priced similarly to other organic yogurts (about $1 a cup), so you won't end up paying more. Knowing it's so healthy and tasty, I'm excited to try the other flavors. I'm not saying I'd switch over to Whole Soy yogurt completely, but I'll definitely be picking this up to enjoy at least once a week.
