On the lookout for the best plant-based milk alternatives? Soy milk is healthy, affordable, and undoubtedly delicious but if we’re talking about soy experts here, Vitasoy is up the ranks!
HISTORY OF SOY MILK FROM VITASOY
Vitasoy’s origins start back in March 1940 where founder Dr. Lo Kwee Seong was on the move to provide the people of Hong Kong a nutritious, protein-rich, and affordable alternative to milk delivered door-to-door to address scarcity and lactose intolerance of most Chinese.
After the war, retail sales for soy milk began picking up, prompting the establishment of a new factory. By the mid-70s, Vitasoy became the first company in Hong Kong to utilize the Tetra Pak packaging, or the boxed paper carton packaging that we are familiar with, to improve shelf-life of their soy milk without refrigeration.
But what makes them soy experts?
Vitasoy built their reputation from the ground up, literally!
They only use healthy, non-GMO soybeans grown from the best possible soil and water, permitting the soybeans to soak up as many nutrients as they could. Remember: healthy soybeans are also the best-tasting ones!
Vitasoy also practices strict quality standards to ensure that their soybeans have the proper protein and fat content. These standards are implemented across all their markets so the soybeans remain nutritious and delicious wherever you’re getting their products from.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF SOY MILK
The health benefits of soy milk is a long one!
For starters, soy milk is rich in protein which promotes muscle and organ health. It’s an abundant source of omega-3 fatty acids which are linked to improved brain health, particularly reducing the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
Soy milk also contains potassium that plays a significant role in lowering blood pressure and cholesterol while regulating your pulse. Each drink also serves as a refreshing energy booster thanks to its vitamin B and isoflavone components.
Not only is it good for your health, it’s good for the environment too! Like most plant-based products, soy milk production consumes fewer natural resources than in meat or dairy.
Truly, a little soybean makes a big impact!
