Soy Yogurt v. Cow's Milk Yogurt

Soy Yogurt v. Cow's Milk Yogurt

OK, so I already told you the unpleasant news that eating dairy can cause acne. So what's a yogurt lover to do?

You've got to give soy yogurt a try. My fave is made by Whole Soy & Co. They take soymilk (made from whole organic soybeans) and culture it with vegan cultures including L. Acidophilus and B. Bifidum. It's creamy and very much like cow's milk yogurt, but has all the benefits of soy protein, with no cholesterol.

You can try Whole Soy yogurt in 11 delicious flavors: Plain, Peach, Vanilla, Strawberry, Raspberry, Cherry, Lemon, Blueberry, Apricot Mango, Strawberry Banana, and Mixed Berry.

I think it is worthwhile to compare soy yogurt with cow's milk yogurt. Here's the nutritional info:

6 oz Whole Soy & Co. Vanilla

6 oz Fat Free Stonyfield Farms French Vanilla
