That's the rough equivalent of 78 9oz steaks a years if you consume 2 4oz cappuccinos a day. So for someone trying to keep heart and other disease away it's worth trying to see if you like it. I think it better than going the 1% milk or 2% milk route especially with the sat fat reductions.

Here's the line up they have -


I thought I would give it a try until I saw the price... $8 CAD. Not a lot for some people but is for me :)

Agreed, not cheap. However far cheaper than major medical procedures. I would rather buy this than pay for doctors. I am trying to making systemic diet changes and am willing to try this one in that regard. As I turn 60 in June, it is worth it for that reason.

For a few years we made our own soymilk using a home machine. As you said, fill, push a button and it did the rest. We were getting a variety of soybeans grown in the midwest. They were a variety that did not have the "bean" taste and they made excellent soymilk. We were buying it in 50 pound bags but the company changed to Yahoo shipping and the price was ridiculous so we stopped. We tried "regular' soybeans and did not like the taste.

I just saw that the cafe here at work is now offering Ripple Pea Milk for their milk drinks.

This is the best I've tried so far.
