Soya Bean Milk @ Pulau Tikus, Penang

15 05 2008

Soy milk is nutritionally close to cow’s milk, though most soy milk commercially available today is enriched with added vitamins such as vitamin B12. It naturally has about the same amount of protein (but not the same proteins) as cow milk. Natural soy milk contains little digestible calcium as it is bound to the bean’s pulp, which is insoluble in a human. To counter this, many manufacturers enrich their products with calcium carbonate available to human digestion. Unlike cow’s milk it has little saturated fat and no cholesterol, which many consider to be a benefit. Soy products contain sucrose as the basic disaccharide, which breaks down into glucose and fructose. Since soy doesn’t contain galactose, a product of lactose breakdown, it can safely replace breast milk in children with Galactosemia.

Soy milk is promoted as a healthy alternative to cow’s milk for reasons including:

-Source of lecithin and vitamin E
-Lacks casein
-It is safe for people with lactose intolerance or milk allergy
-Polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats are good for the heart.
-Contains isoflavones, organic chemicals that may possibly be beneficial to health.

I had taste many places of Soya Milk.. but the one i love the most is along Jalan Burmah and there is a van that sells soya milk drink from around 10 am daily along the Poly Coffee Shop. You can try them and tell me wats the taste like

Price: RM 1.20
