– unlike cow’s milk, soy milk contains no cholesterol or lactose, making it healthier for your heart
– soy milk is also low in fat, making it a particularly good milk substitute for baking, cooking, and drinks
– it is a recommended beverage for those with casein allergies, lactose intolerance, diabetes or heart diseases
– all soy milks are gluten free and can be used by people with coeliac disease, although soy allergies are becoming increasingly common and are a lot more serious in children
– soy milk contains omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids which aid blood pressure and cholesterol reduction, in addition to which they help protect against cardiovascular and neurological diseases
– the milk holds more natural protein than that of other alternatives (and the same proportion as in cow’s milk)
– while unfortified soy milk lacks B vitamins (especially vitamin B12) and calcium, most commercial brands are fortified with these, as well as vitamins D and E
