Soya milk is amazingly versatile and one of the best for tea, coffee and cereal. It has the highest in protein content out of all the milks (about 3g per 100g… the same protein content as cow’s milk). Soya is naturally high in essential fatty acids, proteins, fibre, vitamins and minerals, lowers cholesterol and may reduce the risk of breast cancer.
It’s creamy in texture and is very good for tea and coffee. It’s best to wait for the water to cool down a bit before adding the milk or you can get curdling. Soya milk comes in a variety of brands, flavours, sweetened, unsweetened and is widely available in supermarkets, independent health food shops, online, restaurants, cafes, coffee shops and even small, local shops. It's great to drink from the glass, to use in hot drinks, smoothies, cooking (it can be used in place of cow's milk in any recipe and is stable at high temperatures).
