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!
