    Soy Milk?!?!

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    A question for all soy milk coffee drinkers out there.

    I picked up two cartons this week and was having a play with making soy milk based drinks.

    Do you guys find soy milk in coffee taste like dried shitake mushrooms?

    The whole cup of coffee taste like mushrooms!

    hmm.....

    Im guessing it depends on the type of soy milk. If you taste them straight, theres a huge variation in flavour from mild and innocuous through mildewed cardboard. My wife prefers soy milk for various reasons but wont use it in coffee or tea. If anyone has a good experience of soy in coffee drinks, Id also be interested to hear about it. If not, the best I can suggest is try a few other brands. The worst kind Ive tasted has been malt-free variants. I can list a few brands that taste OK straight if that helps. I havent tried any on the milk frother for years.

    Re: Soy Milk?!?!

    My preference is for Vitasoy, most there types are fine. The only one i dont like is the red container, its a bit thick and pasty.

    For preference i usually use the Vitasoy Soy Milky Lite at home. When out the better ones at cafes seem to use in the purple or green containers. Most seem froth ok.

    Bonsoy can be ok, but i prefer the Vitasoys.

    The Soy Milky ones are also Gluten free.

    Re: Soy Milk?!?!

    Ocassionally drink soy once in awhile, and mainly stock it for guests when they come over. I must say it took awhile to get use to the taste but now I quite like it. I usually go with So Good or Vitasoy, but have just bought a carton of Bonsoy since everyone is raving about it. Havent tried it yet but at double the price of other soy milks it better be good!

    My wife swears by Sungold Soy Milk. In fact the only way shell drink coffee is if Sungold is used. If shes really keen, Bonsoy is acceptable as a second choice, though she does like Sungold a fair bit more.

    Good thing is that Sungold is cheaper too! Check it out if its available near you. They sell them at Spar - thats the only place Ive ever seen them.

    Cheers,
    Ben

    Re: Soy Milk?!?!

    I am a regular soy milk user for a number of reasons and not only soy but light soy. I know it sounds terrible but once you get use to it is actually pretty good. Soy milk depends completely on the brand. Some can be OK while others are awful. I mostly only drink soy at home and have found that the light soy milk from Aldi stores is by far the best and also can be bought at a good price.

    Re: Soy Milk?!?!

    Hey guys,

    Here is my two cents. My partner is a respected barista in Melbourne, she is also lactose intolerant. She swears by the original Vitasoy (red) but also enjoys the calci-plus vitasoy (purple) that I use at my work. She says that Vitasoy blends well with coffee, where as Bonsoy "cuts" the coffee.

    As a side note as a barista, I find long-life Soy is very difficult to use. Its very difficult to steam, and is very watery. The refridgerated "fresh" Soy is a lot easier, and produces nice micorofoam. I dont know if there is a difference in taste. Ill give you an update in the near future.

    Cheers

    I recently switched from vitasoy products to Sungold Soy... its SO much better and tastes a whole lot cremier etc..

    Mecca use bonsoy and they still serve the best soy lattes going around in my opinion.. but sungold is still my favourite.

    I buy them off Dairy Farmers so Im sure youd be able to get it through them also. Its $2.65/litre

    Re: Soy Milk?!?!

    I am sure some of you may find the following disconcerting or maybe just something to be filed in the crackpot/alarmist file. I gave up adding soy to my coffee as I found I enjoyed a long black more (although they never last long enough!). This coincided with an almost immediate improvement in my constitution, although not a scientific or proven link in any way, I wondered what I had changed to make the difference and eliminating soy was the only thing I could identify, so I did a little research and was surprised at what I found. Here is a supposedly unbiased assessment if anyone is interested:

    You may need to read through that web page carefully.

    Some of it is just crap, like cooking doesnt remove the enzymes that inhibit protein digestion.

    Also the article states that Soy contains certain chemicals/minerals that do such and such but does say what levels are in soy and if that level will have an effect.
    Remove a single chemical from a complex natural product, testing that chemical in health trials, chemical found to be bad, therefore complex natural product is bad is simply bad science. Remember that cancer study? People who eat carrots have lower rates of cancer. Carrots have vitamin A. Isolate vitamin A and feed to humans. Cancer goes up. Doesnt mean carrots are bad.

    Other parts dont mean much, like 90% of soy is GM covered with pesticides which then get treated with chemical X. Chemical X is bad.
    Look at VitaSoy or Bonsoy. Both use organic non GM beans.

    If you think soy is bad, just take a look at cow juice.
    It has been proven to cause juvenile diabetes in people who are genetically predisposed.
    A scientist working for the Australian diary board found that there was a link between the consumption of milk and autism, diabetes and Alzheimer’s.

    But each to their own. If you really enjoy cow lactate, keep it up. I know Id rather live a better shorter life than a long crap one.

    Also what effects you may not effect others. You feel better off soy, dont consume it.
    When I was young and fit I used to run 5 kms everyday. I tried for months and months to push past the 5km. One day I gave up diary. By the end of one week I was running 20kms. Doesnt mean that level of improvement will happen to you. The reverse might be true! Give up diary and find you perform worse.

    Re: Soy Milk?!?!

    We have been drinking Soy milk for around 30 years or so. In the States:

    Silk - I use to like it, but it does not stretch well.

    Kirkland (Costco brand)- I believe that it is made by Silk, but it stretches quite well, and woks for latte art.

    Kikoman Pearl - I tasted this for the first time at the SCAA Atlanta show and it is so remarkably like cow juice that it is amazing. The sweetness level, texture, taste, and even mouthfeel is excellent. No chalkiness or beany flavor at all.

    Many adults (most, really) have some level of lactose intolerance. A lot of folks find they feel better when they stop consuming milk for a while. After all, if we needed milk as adults we would still be nursing.

    if you dont believe that, try not drinking milk for a month, then drinking a glass. The mucous production will begin before you get half way through.

    I should add a warning!
    If you really like something, dont stop unless for a really good health reason.

    After I stopped consuming dairy I now get the mucous production that Randy G is talking about.

    Not too bad with cheese. The worst is yoghurt. One teaspoon and I am coughing up phlegm for half an hour. Sorry to those who are eating!

    I like yoghurt. Love cheese. Not fair!

    Dont really care about milk. It now has an off baby spew smell to me. The texture in the mouth is just WRONG!
    Dont mind cream or ice cream but quite happy to give them up.
    Butter and other animal fats now feel wrong in my mouth. The fat coats the tongue and it feels like I never can scrap it off.
    Margarine just doesnt cut it as an alternative. So I just dont eat it.
    Most meat is easy to pass by. It tastes boring to me. Although the aged T bone that my local butcher has ......Mmmmmmmm. Happy to live with crappy feeling after for that!

    So dont stop. If you like your meat/diary dont give up like I did, it may ruin it.

    That is the most dramatic story in this regard I think I have heard. I have heard situations caused by antibiotics in regards to taste and smell, but those were always temporary.

    I had a friend who loved the apple malted served up at a great vegetarian restaurant in California (they were freakin delicious!). For those reading in the San Fernando Valley- it was Follow Your Heart; quite famous for their soups. About one or two hours after consuming his malted he always ended up depositing it in the loo when his digestive tract was through sending it on its way. He later found out that he was allergic to a number of things including dairy and gluten.

    Sometimes when your body tells you something it is best to pay attention. :o

    Re: Soy Milk?!?!

    Ive been drinking full cream milk every almost every day for as long as I can remember.
    If I stop I get indigestion.

    I like my milk and it likes me.

    My wife and son are lactose intolerant and my daughter drinks skim by choice if/when she drinks milk.

    Re: Soy Milk?!?!

    Re: Sungold. I always found it WAY too sweet. I never add sugar to my coffee and if it was made with Sungold I could swear there were two sugars in it...terrible to someone who really doesnt like cane sugar. Malt on the other hand is a must in a soymilk for me.

    I use dairy in my coffee again now and am thankful for that, but have remained on soy for my cereal and cold drinks - I really like it. I have settled on Natures Soy - nice and creamy, doesnt curdle coffee, and cheaper than Bonsoy (which I also love but cant afford regularly).

    Re: Soy Milk?!?!

    I dont drink soy, but I have tried soy coffees. *I used to use Vitasoy and personally found it has quite a thick, oily texture and quite a powerful flavour of its own, mainly nuttiness. *Where I work now we use Bonsoy. *The texture is much smoother and the flavour less over-powering. *It is also much easier to steam and pour and it has excellent feedback from customers.

    Re: Soy Milk?!?!

    Hmm I think you cant go past Bonsoy. Its the most organic out of all the brands on the shelves (most expensive too), its made 100% in Australia and it has the cleanest taste, it really isnt sweet compared to most of the other brands. And if you go to any good cafe you will notice they use Bonsoy.

    Try not to drink too much soy milk too people. A lot of studies showing that its a carcinogenic. Test show that two cups of soy a day can alter a womans menstrual cycle as well. Do a little google and you will see quite a bit of research. In saying that what are the effects of two cups of coffee a day... or more!

    You can Google and find any research you want to support any hypothesis you care to support. Remember Aluminum and Alzheimers? False. Remember soy and reduction in sperm count? Soy is why there are so few Chinese people living today. I have advertisements that quote MDs who state that smoking tobacco is good for you. "A lot of studies.." is misleading. Please feel free to post the source of your information and who funded it. Additionally, do a search for "Dangers of Dihydrous oxide" and how the government allows it to be pumped into our homes even though it causes so many deaths each year.

    Kikoman has an excellent soymilk that is excellent, not only in taste and texture when compared to "real" milk, but also it stretches very well.

    i cant believe how many people drink dihydrous mon-oxide. The Gov. should do something.

    Is that the reconstituted concentrate form?

    Careful steaming that stuff - you dont want to burn it.

    Re: Soy Milk?!?!

    i use vitasoy (purple, and green for lite soy) and im quite fond of them. i never used to like soy milk but with a growing intolerance to milk, ive had little choice.

    i find with soy as far as pouring goes, letting the milk sit for a few moments after steaming yields a much shinnier, and easier base to pour designs.

    Re: Soy Milk?!?!

    I find the purple vitasoy is great for those times when I feel hungry but dont want/need to eat. It seems to give coffee a much fuller body, filling me up without actually weighing me down (so to speak).

    I concur with Leon, letting soy sit for a moment produces a much nicer texture for pouring. Its amazing how many people will comment on that when all they drink is soy milk ("How come no one else can produce good foam like that with soy?!" Is music to my ears at work ::) )

    Hmmm that is interesting i might give the fresh stuff a try. At Atomica in Melbourne they use the red vitasoy which gives a very malty flavour. Im using it at home right now and the maltiness is all there - it combines nicely with the right bean. Pure Harvest is what we use mostly because its so cheap and organic whole soy beans and tastes fine. Seems like bonsoy is a status symbol among cafes - but it is good stuff and I recon it leaves very little impression on the flavour of the cup, in a good way... some like Australias Own i cannot stand the taste off. A real range of flavours out there, when it comes to soy. Cow or bean? Seems to me that one is as strange as the other.

    Re: Soy Milk?!?!


    Having used Vitasoy UHT for the past 7+ years I too was sold on it until I tried Bonsoy. We still use Vitasoy at home as we appreciate the malty flavour over cereal, but in coffee, Bonsoy leaves it for dead. As much as milk, it is fairly neutral in flavour and IMO compliments, rather than challenges the flavour of coffee. I also find that Bonsoy texturises easily and well. And every one of my soy drinking customers have also given Bonsoy a big thumbs up.

    I guess though that soy milk is like coffee, in that its up to you to find the one you like.

    Re: Soy Milk?!?!

    Since reading through this thread, I thought it was time to give the soy latte a go... i have a new fave drink at work! I had a laugh. We use So Good and I actually really enjoyed that rich, malty taste. It was like a hug from mum! haha.
    You guys are great - gunna have to track down some of these other brands to try out at home.

    Re: Soy Milk?!?!

    cant digest dairy proteins here, it was a good thing I liked soy lattes before I had to change! Bonsoy has a great texture and is very creamy, but you also need a very bold coffee to cut through it. I use the So Good regular, but only the stuff from the fridge as I am able to enjoy that on muesli also whereas the other soy Ive tried tastes like crap.

    TG may have been attempting the tofu latte....gorgeous with higher acidity coffee and some soys...You eat it with a spoon or strain it and use it for caffeinated cooking
    The thickness is good for a capp.

    Re: Soy Milk?!?!

    TG,
    The things with soy, its not "milk", so it doesnt act like milk when stretching it. When you steam soy, use minimal air right at the start. Soy milk doesnt expand to much when you stretch it, so it is really hard to visually perceive how much foam it will have. So its practice, practice, practice.
    I usually put as much air in for a soy latte as i would for a flat white with full cream milk. And you stop heating soy a little earlier than full cream too, this will yield better tasting results.
    Hope this helps a little.

    Re: Soy Milk?!?!

    i find the red vitasoy really puffs up and does become thick - almost like tofu, 2mcm. but timing the plunge of the wand right can achieve the thickness you want - a little earlier on the plunge for a slightly thinner milk.

    Re: Soy Milk?!?!

    Ok Ive started buying some soy lately.

    I found that no matter how I steam it, it turns into chunks of soy curds!!

    Its definitely not a temperature issue as I keep my milk/soy at very low temperatures.

    It even happens with bonsoy for some reason......

    Anyone experiencing this?

    Re: Soy Milk?!?!

    Soymilk is turned into tofu with the addition of magnesium chloride (a salt). It is possible that if there is any residual salt in the soy or salt-related minerals in the water you use, this could be a factor.

    I did have this happen to me, and I seem to remember it was a batch of a particular soymilk. It created a tofu-like foam on top of the coffee. I like tofu, but this stuff was disgusting.

    Re: Soy Milk?!?!

    Hi All, I have been a soy drinker for many many years as i am intolerant to dairy. I have to say lately I have been drinking the Woolies select organic soy milk long life and it is awesome.... I can stretch this as good as
    fulll cream and it is a fairly consistent soy. A few tips for stretching soy.
    Make sure it is super cold and always shake it or tip it upside down and get it all mixed.
    I personally have never liked Vitasoy in coffee but thats just me...I find Vita soy is to inconsistent too stretch.
    Bonsoy is definitely the best on the market for consitency and the least crap in it. Bonsoy is also the least processed and the best for you. I implore all of you to have a look at the ingredients in all these soys. Thats why i choose woolies select organic or Bonsoy. :)
    Hop I didnt waffle too much very passionate about soy and coffee.

    Re: Soy Milk?!?!

    Happy new year.

    Thought Id revive this thread in light of the bonsoy recall.
    I havent drunk cows milk for 2.5 years due to the onset of allergies. I tried some this week to test my reaction and I couldnt stand the taste of it in coffee (previously drank milk in coffee for over a decade and loved it). Now it tastes fatty and buttery (even light milk). So going back to milk isnt an option (and prob not the best for my health anyway). With bonsoy off the shelf Im looking for options....

    Does anyone know where and if Sun Gold soy is available. Its generally hard to find and I heard they stopped producing it???

    Cheers,

    sd

    Re: Soy Milk?!?!

    Have you tried Vitasoy?; that appears to be the next most popular (by cafes).

    Re: Soy Milk?!?!

    hi TG,

    Vitasoy is a good product but I find it too dominant a flavour with coffee. I havent tried the new "cafe" or "late" version as I cant find it. Anyone know where to get it?
