Fresh soya bean milk and it’s derivatives are very commonly and easily available throughout Asia. Often recommended as an alternative to milk, it’s health benefits are fast catching on in the West but it’s availability is still limited to packed cartons in the cold section of the supermarket.
The appeal of soya-bean milk is often as a lactose-free alternative to milk but it does beyond that. It also offers benefits in the form of non-animal protein content.
Making your own soya bean milk at home, although not difficult is a rather lengthy and messy process, involving the blending, boiling and filtering of pre-soaked soya beans.
With a dedicated soya milk maker, the hard work is taken out allowing you to make perfectly smooth, silky soya milk at home. With your own machine of course, there is also the option of using organic, non-GM beans ensuring that you know exactly what your soya milk is made of with no additive or preservatives.
All soya milk makers are also able to make rice and nut milks from cashew to almond milk (with a little adaptation to the process – often involving soaking nuts), and some even come with soup-making recipes.
