Best soy milk?

I want to start drinking soymilk instead of regular lowfat milk. What kind is the best?

    1. Where do you live? In SD at 99Ranch and other Asian markets, soymilk is made and delivered fresh and hot daily by Lifesoy.

      1. I can wholeheartedly reccomend Silk soy milk. I work in university food service, and Silk is THE one the students prefer. It also contains no artificial ingredients like some of the others.

          Second that. Silk is one of the least "chalky". Try 8th Continent too and West Soy.
          I prefer "shelf-stable" over refrigerated only for convenience and I don't have to worry about consuming it immediately. I can't comment if there's any difference in taste.


          West Soy:

          8th Continent:

          These are all pretty good and readily available at most supermarkets.
          There's no need to venture to any health food stores, unless you want to, and once there, you'll find a whole world of products.

          1. Thanks for all the suggestions. I tried Silk this week (the unsweetened, refrigerated kind), and I like it a lot. But I think I'm going to gradually sample all the different kinds mentioned until I have established my personal favorite. :)

              I put Silk (plain) on my cereal everyday. I've tried others and like this one the best so far.
