Characterised by its creamy, smooth texture, and distinct beany taste, Soy Milk is also widely used in desserts as well as in cooking as an alternative to cow’s milk. For those who are lactose intolerant, it wouldn’t be an understatement to say that Soy Milk is their Lord and saviour. This drink is also popular among health-conscious individuals as it has a high nutritional value—having as much protein as cow’s milk, very little saturated fat, and more.

Origin of Soy milk 

Originating from North-eastern China, where it was first popularised during the Qing Dynasty, Soy Milk has become a global drink that is loved by people from Asia, Europe and North America. In China, there are two types of Soy Milk—“Dou Jiang” and “Dou Nai”. The first refers to the more traditional beany beverage produced as a by-product of tofu production; in contrast, the latter refers to the store-bought products designed to imitate the flavour and consistency of dairy milk.

In Malaysia, some well-accustomed ways of consuming Soy Milk would, of course, be in the form of desserts and beverages. Some famous deserts being Tau Fu Fa and Soy Milk Ice cream. Being a versatile drink, Soy Milk allows for much exploration. Even then, if you’re not sure how you want to have your Soy Milk, you can never go wrong with adding some black sugar and Cincau to make Soya Bean Cincau.
