Parve soy yogurt (lemon flavored)

Does anyone know of a soy yogurt that has reliable certification. I am familiar with the Whole Soy and Co brand that they sell at Whole Foods but not clear on their hechsher.
I appreciate any information.

  1. Susie,

    The rabbi who provides the hechscher is Rabbi Jacob Traub. He seems to be associated with some legitimate sources.

    1. it is kosher by Orthodox Rabbinical Council of San Francisco Rabbi Traub

        trader joes has pareve yogurts unsure of the flavors/heckshers. there is a blog that is all things yogurt and she may have leads for you too

      2. Wow is this the real Susie Fishbein? I can't believe you read chowhound! If yes, I just wanted to tell you how much your cookbooks have done for me. I never knew the first thing about hosting or cooking (didn't grow up frum and my family didn't entertain much) but always have relied on you to show me how to put out a great spread for my guests. Thanks.

        1. We're not supposed to talk about various hechsherim here, as far as I understand it, so I realize this whole thread might be censored, but I have asked a well-respected OU kashrut rabbi about all the hechsherim I've ever seen on any yogurt that calls itself parve and been told that none of them are good. However, I was also told that the Scroll-K DE (the one from Denver) is good, so I have used Silk brand soy yogurt for desserts to be served AFTER a bisari meal, but of course halacha forbids them from being used with meat itself. No tandoori chicken or the like, in other words!

            the Chicago Rabbinical Council (which is a well known and well respected agency) considers the scroll-K to be legit.

            I have found the above list to be extremely helpful.

          2. It's hard to find a soy or coconut milk yogurt that is pareve (I could only find DE) which bothers me like crazy.
