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

I agree, whole soy is my favorite as well. I wasn't a fan of it either when I first tasted it, but now I don't see any difference.

soy yogurt is also great to use in recipes -- this month's vegetarian times has a great recipe for strawberry shortcake that uses soy yogurt in the dough. plain soy yogurt subs for sour cream pretty nicely! :-)

It doesn't have the TANG you expect when you first try it, but it's still delicious and creamy! Hazelnut - Thanks for the suggestion! I added the Calcium. They are all pretty similar, which I was happy to find out.

i love soy and i love yogurt, but soy yogurt.. ugh. i've bought it three times hoping i'd been wrong each time, but nope each time I just can't finish the container, the texture is just too grainy for me.

Whole Soy is my favorite brand of soy yogurt too. It's the creamiest, best texture of all the non-dairy brands I've tried.

I'll have to look out for this soy yogurt. The probably sell it at Trader Joe's.
