Silk Vanilla Heart Health Soymilk Review

Silk Vanilla Heart Health SoymilkI recently tried Silk Soymilk again to find that I like it way more than I remember. In fact, given how hard 8th Continent Light Soymilk is to find at some grocery stores near me, Silk may be edging in for the lead in terms of soymilks that I buy. I was curious about the new Silk Heart Health Soymilk, which according to the company's website, combines the benefits of soy protein and phytosterols, thus providing heart-healthy benefits. Sounds good to me and at $2.99 per 1/2 gallon, the cost definitely wasn't prohibitive.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 cup
Calories: 80
Total Fat: 1.5 grams, 2%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 95 mg, 5%
Carbohydrates: 10 grams
Fiber: 1 gram, 4%
Sugars: 7 grams
Protein: 6 grams

I poured myself a cup of this milk and took a sip. To be honest, I didn't notice much of a taste difference between this and the Light variety, although it might have a bit heartier of a flavor. It's smooth and vanilla-y, which is all I really need in a soymilk. I love this plain, in coffee, in smoothies, on cereal, and the list goes on and on. Given the delicious taste but lack of "light" on the package, I worried about the calories; that is, until I turned the package over.

Each 1 cup serving of Silk Vanilla Heart Health Soymilk provides 80 calories, 1.5 grams of total fat, 5% of the daily value for sodium, 1 gram of fiber, 7 grams of sugar, 6 grams of protein. There is also 50% of the DV for vitamin B12 and 30% for calcium, vitamin D, riboflavin

The ingredients include, all natural soymilk (filtered water, soy flour), all natural evaporated cane juice, plant sterols, calcium carbonate, natural vanilla flavor, sea salt, carrageenan, vitamin A, palmitate, vitamin D2, riboflavin, and vitamin B12.

I'm so glad that I tried Silk Vanilla Heart Health Soymilk and will definitely be buying it again.
