WestSoy Unsweetened Soy Milk

westsoy unsweetened soy milk
You may have enjoyed my posts in the past about drinking and using coconut milk or almond milk in recipes – either of which is a great choice for calorie counters as well as those who want to live a more healthy lifestyle. Soy milk is an additional one of my staples, and while I sometimes enjoy the flavored and sweetened versions that are on the market, sometimes I just want unsweetened soy milk – which is when I drink WestSoy’s Organic Unsweetened Soy Milk.  One thing that I like about this product is that there are only two ingredients in its makeup – filtered water and whole organic soybeans. 

An eight ounce cup of WestSoy’s Organic Unsweetened Soy Milk has ninety little calories, four grams of dietary fiber, nine grams of protein, no cholesterol, and no trans-fats, and 2 weight watchers points plus points. Pretty good, huh?

Soy is a magical food.  Soy milk, in particular, is believed to help in lowering one's cholesterol and staving off heart disease. This has been a recognized  since the mid-nineties when soy milk drinkers in a research study were shown to reduce their total cholesterol and LDL “bad” cholesterol as well as their triglyceride and preserving HDL “good” cholesterol levels.  Soy is although thought to help bones stay strong and is used in some countries as a treatment for osteoporosis

I drink unsweetened soy milk from time to time, but I also like to use it when whipping up a low-cal smoothie. WestSoy also offers unsweetened soy milk in unsweetened vanilla and unsweetened chocolate flavors, and is available in a lot of natural food stores, including Whole Foods.  You can bone up on your soy intake by drinking soy milk – and you can also get soy from soy powder, soy yogurt, many breakfast cereals, tofu, tempeh, and soy nuts
