Original soymilk has a mild beany flavour. Though it doesn’t have the richness of normal dairy milk, it is cholesterol-free, low in fat and offers all the goodness of soy. Soymilk can be an acquired taste at first, so when introducing soymilk, it can be creatively “disguised” or substituted in other dishes.
Serve hot or cold. Substitute anywhere you’d use regular dairy milk. Use in coffee or tea instead of cream – but be sure to warm up the soymilk first, otherwise the heated beverage will make it curdle. Add hot chocolate mix or capuccino-flavoured powders to soymilk for a tasty low-fat dairy alternative. Add almond flavouring or maple syrup to create your own homemade hot drink. Pour soymilk over your favourite breakfast cereal or granola. Use soymilk to make traditional breakfast favourites such as oatmeal or “cream of wheat”. Unsweetened soymilk can also be used in cooking or baking where traditional milk is called for, such as in scalloped potatoes or creamy soups.
Storage and Handling
Soymilk is pasteurized without preservatives. As a perishable product, always refrigerate soymilk and handle it as you would any dairy product. Good for 5 days after opening. An unopened jug of soymilk is good up to the stamped expiry date, if it hasn’t been subject to temperature abuse.
