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.
