    My learning for the day.

    And here I thought it was Apple related. iSoy containing a single drop from Steve Jobs tear.

    Great product, though I've been enjoying Australia's Own unsweetened soy milk which can be had for $1.40/L on special at Coles. Not at the same level but better value personally

      Which products have the most in terms of Soy ingredients %?

      A very nice, unsweetened alternative to Bonsoy is Vitasoy Soy Milk Protein Plus. It's high in soy bean content (min. 19%) and generally sold for $3, often at $2 on special

      https://soy.com.au/product/soy-milk-protein-plus/

      Difference to note, and this may not affect you, is that Bonsoy works well for steaming and foams nicely, but the Vitasoy will separate

      •  

        I'll give a +1 for VitaSoy, but the Lite version. It goes really well with coffee, ceral and shakes as it seems to have less of a powdery feeling in my mouth. (I know weird but that's the only way I can describe it)

        I'm so annoyed that all the Woolies and Coles in my city have decided to stop stocking this, I've put in feedback but I don't see it coming back. I have to drink Coles soy milk now as that's the next best thing for my tastes. Vitasoy protein plus was really the best.

        •  

          Yes I’ve noticed both Woollies and Coles have stopped stocking the Vitasoy ranges. So disappointed.

    •  

      Agree, Bonsoy is the best for taste and purity but the price reflects this. It's a bonus when cafe's use it as their go-to.
      Australia's Own seems ok, haven't tried frothing it for coffee but may do. The cheap ones often have more oils and other nasty's like soy isolates.
      I've been Using the 'Just Organic Soy Milk' from Aldi which is always $1.49 standard. Seems pretty good, 13% soy beans but still has organic rice syrup & sunflower oil, sea salt.
      It's annoying that Vitasoy soy milks don't seem to be on special often at Coles/Woolies, as they were the best balance of taste when reduced to $1.50-2.00.

    Out of all the soy products on the shelves (except for the 'barista made' milks), Bonsoy still froths the best on my machine (Sunbeam EM7000).

    I've tried most of the supermarket varieties, and while bonsoy is the best my every day is pure harvest unsweetened ($1.70/L). It's worked perfectly as a milk substitute in every recipe I've tried, it actually tastes like soy milk and it's high % soy. Ingredient list is short and simple

  •  

    Its good stuff. Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't aldi have it for under $4 normal price?

    •  

      Exactly $4

      •  

        Yes $3.99 at Aldi everyday and where we have been buying. I only switched to Soy for coffee in the last couple of months and Bonsoy is very good, we had also been buying Vitasoy which is pretty good however as both now drinking we are getting the Bonsoy from Aldi. Should be save 49 cents. Will be watching to see if Amazon price matches.

    I tried the Coles brand one the other day. I can't say it quite won the battle but was $1.50 or so and one of the better alternatives I've tried.

    How come soybeans only 14% of the ingredients? I would usually buy soy milk from the asian grocery.

    What's the difference guys? The one from asian grocery seems to be more traditional and less chemical?

    Anyone in the know can shed some light?

      Cuz there's a lot of water in soy milk. I make soy milk at home using a Philips soup maker and I can confirm that 1 to 6 ratio (therefore 14% soy) is about as high as it gets.

      Asian supermarket ones are indeed more traditional and has less added thickener like tapioca syrup, xanthan gum, or god forbid veg oil. However, because of this it simply doesn't froth. Most people buying Bonsoy or Milk Lab are looking to make latte / flat white with them. If you just want to drink soy milk straight up, get the Asian ones. Or make your own. It's super simple.

      Edit: just want to add that $2 worth of soy bean makes about 30L of soy milk.

    Never tried it, but it seems expensive and they use a very cheap tetra pack without a closing fixture

    •  

      The better of quality products. When people pay .50c (extra) for a soy milk coffee, and don't get something like this there is a very noticeable difference.

      Again, this I find is not used as a bulk ingredient or use to fill out or substitute milk in a large way. Adding it to coffee I feel is well worth it, as the expiry date is long and you can use it sparingly, the same can not. be found for many high quality milks out there - which generally are fresh and thus have a short shelf life.

      Cafe style milks at the major supermarket are in the same order with $/unit when compared to this. deal.

    I switched to soy recently to try and remove as much animal products from diet (no im not going veagm - yet)

    Best i found was from woolies is the macro brand at $1.60 for %16 soy beans.

    Havent tried oatmilk yet but i hear it good. Probably makr it at home for cheap with a blender.

    •  

      Have you considered trying Almond milk as well?

    •  

      Thanks will try the macro soy milk. This should be the deal. Seems healthier than bonsoy according to the NI. At half the price.

        Yeah that's been debunked dude. You would have to be constantly drinking over 2.5 liters daily for it to have any measurable affect. Any affects would also be reversed when you stop having excessive amounts. I think it all started because they did a rat study that did affect the male reproduction, but it was later noted as being useless as rats process soy totally different to humans.

        •  

          I remember that But then there was another study soon after that showed it does have an affect but mostly on young children, not adults.

          •  

            @BongoOB: @BongoOB do you have the link to that study? As mentioned it's been debunked so many times and cow's milk contains the same amount anyway

  •  

    Orange Supermarket in Wolli Creek (NSW) has Bonsoy 2 for $7 usually.

  •  

    Terra Madre in Northcote, Melbourne has a case of 6 for $20…all the time

  •  

    What's with the fancy ingredients?

    Soy milk is made from soy beans and water blended, strained, and cooked. Maybe some salt if you want.

    No tapioca syrup (sweetener?), no Job's tears, no calcium carbonate (aka chalk!).

  •  

    wtf is job's tear?

  •  

    Going to grab a couple, have to Work out of The ALDI beans or their organic soy is stuffed. Have had luck with the first bag I got, last one or two in the Columbian not so good at all. 1kg for 13$ is pretty good though
