Silk Organic Unsweetened Soymilk is a good source of soy protein and has as much calcium as dairy milk. It’s also certified organic, has no added sugar and is dairy free, gluten free and verified by the Non-GMO Project’s product verification program. There are no artificial colors, flavors or, as the website says, funny business. I picked this up because I’m lactose intolerant and don’t drink milk.
The packaging of Silk Organic Unsweetened Soymilk uses bold green to conjure up images of fresh from the farm (at least that’s what it does for me), and it looks like it has a picture of the actual product splashing into a glass. So imagine my SURPRISE when I poured out a glass to have with my cereal in the morning, and I saw a tan, off-white liquid instead of the snow-white image pictured on the front. If you’re going to show what is intended to be an image of what’s inside the container – then I feel it should be accurate. And this, is NOT.
❧ Taste & Texture
In my book, the taste of soymilk never really changes. There is a slight nuttiness and not much else. There is some body to this and it’s not as watery as skim milk for example, but soymilk is not something I typically drink by itself. It’s always added to cereal or used in making smoothies.For those purposes, Silk Organic Unsweetened Soymilk was just fine.
❧ Serving Size and Nutritionals
Each 1 cup serving of Silk Organic Unsweetened Soymilk provides only 80 calories from 4 grams of total fat (6% of the DV), 2 grams of fiber, 1 gram of sugars and 7 grams of protein. There’s also 50% of your daily dose of vitamin B12, and 30% of calcium, vitamin D and riboflavin.

❧ Price / Worth It?
I purchased a quart of Silk Organic Unsweetened Soymilk for $2.76 from my local grocery store. I buy it because I’m lactose intolerant and can’t tolerate cows milk so it’s definitely worth it for me.
