What is soya milk?
Soya milk is a beverage made from the extract of soya beans.

How is soya milk made?
According to the Soya Handbook by Tetra Pak, the general steps of producing soya beverage are as follows:

Soybeans are first soaked then grinded to produce a slurry. The slurry is then mixed with water and cooked.

Clarified liquid soya is then extracted through filtering and pressing processes. A post-extraction treatment—which includes, among others, decanting, formulation and homogenisation— is given to the extract.

The soya milk is then pasteurised to destroy bacteria, mold and yeasts before it is sent for packaging.

What are the nutritional values in soya milk?
Soya milk is a source of proteins, isoflavones and different types of Vitamin B. Since it is plant-based, it contains no cholesterol. Soya milk does not contain lactose so it is very suitable for people who are lactose intolerant.

What are the potential health benefits of drinking soya milk?
According to the Soya Handbook, studies have found that soya-based diets can prevent osteoporosis, or the loss of bones. It also reduces the risk of several types of cancer like breast, prostate and colon cancer.

The Soya Handbook also said that there is evidence to suggest that having soya protein in diets will lower blood cholesterol. It is also helpful in managing renal disease and diabetes mellitus.

In 1999, the US Food and Drug Administration approved the health claim that 25g of soya protein a day, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.

As the protein content of soya milk is rather similar to that of dairy milk, it is an alternative to the latter. It is low in saturated fat and since it comes from a vegetable source, it contains no cholesterol.
