During the 1970s, founder Ted Nordquist began making delicious soyfoods using traditional Asian methods. After starting the first tofu factory in Sweden, he moved back to the U.S. and began making soy yogurt. In 1999, WholeSoy sold its first cup of soy yogurt. The company still remains independently-owned and is located in San Francisco, California.
WholeSoy yogurts are naturally crafted from whole, U.S. grown, organic soybeans. All 12 flavors are certified vegan, gluten-free, kosher pareve, organic and non-GMO. They also provide all the health benefits of yogurt, including complete protein, calcium and live probiotic cultures, without any of the dairy or cholesterol!
The One Green Planet Verdict: We sampled 5 of WholeSoy’s 12 soy yogurt flavors and loved them all!
All the varieties had a thick, smooth, and delightfully creamy consistency. Each flavor had a unique and distinctive taste, and recommendations really come down to personal preference!
The vanilla variety has a delicious, classic taste; the peach and blueberry flavors have awesome chunks of real fruit; the key lime is a tasty combination of sweet and tart; and the tangy, unsweetened variety is great mixed with fresh fruit or in a smoothie.
Aside from the great taste, we also love that WholeSoy supports sustainable manufacturing practices! They use only certified organic soybeans, and use other certified organic ingredients whenever possible. All of their yogurts are free of any GMO’s and all packaging is BPA-free. WholeSoy is a yogurt you can feel good about eating!

So far, my palate has had the pleasure of experiencing the delicious flavors of Lemon and Vanilla. I must say that considering this product is made from soy, it is still very much like regular yogurt- if anything, it is more yummy! I add bananas and any other toppings to add to the flavor depending if I want a little more crunch or filling feeling. I LOVE it!! It's 5 stars + another one!
What can I say? So far, I've tried five flavors of the WholeSoy brand Yogurt: peach, mixed berry, strawberry, raspberry and blueberry. Excellent substitute as far as flavor, consistency and nutritional value. Plus, they're quite filling. :) To date, Mixed Berry is my favorite! The creaminess, tartness and overall 'oooo-goodness!' feeling you receive while eating this yogurt makes it hard to resist. I won't go back to dairy anytime soon!
WHOLESOY Yogurts Review
What can I say? After trying WholeSoy Yogurts, I won't go back to dairy! It's a very good substitute that captures the tartness, creaminess and umm-umm goodness of regular yogurt, without the added health concerns. I've tried five flavors: peach, mixed berry, strawberry, raspberry, and blueberry. So far, all are good. But, the mixed berry is awesomely my favorite! :)
Discretion the better part of valor
I had given up on soy yogurts. I had two bad experiences and that's enough for my blacklist. I had also tried nearly every brand of dairy yogurt and didn't like them. After becoming a vegan this year, I have been trying many new products. I decided to give WholeSoy a try so I bought one blueberry. OMG! Now I buy 7 a week and really want more. These are unbelievably delicious. How do they do it?
