Making Soy Yogurt

  • 9

As a departure from an earlier thread, I want to make soy yogurt at home. Do I make it the same way as dairy yogurt, just heat the soy milk, let it cool, add the culture, and incubate? Or are there extra steps?

Thanks!

  1. I, too am interested in making soy yougurt, so I googled "how to make soy yogurt" and quite a few sites popped up. See what you think. I haven't checked out any of these sites yet, but from the headings, I think you'll get your question answered, maybe more quickly than here. Good luck!

    1. The soy protein acts a lot like the milk proteins, so that should be all you have to do.

        Really? Thanks! I'll have to give it a try. I'd like to try it with almond or other homemade nut milk, and I haven't been able to find much on google about that.

          Nut protein is a lot different from soy or milk. You could give it a try, but I'm not optimistic. It would taste very yummy though.

            Do you think it would taste good with the same fermentation?

            1. re: morphone

              Yes it would. I worry that the proteins might not coagulate and you'd get a runny yogurt. I guess you could add some starch like they do for commercial yogurts though.

                Bleh, that doesn't sound like good eats. Hrmm, may have to think on this more.

                  I'd try a small sample batch! What could go wrong?
