Gee, what an embarrassing subject. I loved soy milk from the first time I tasted it, before I became Vegan.



However, I find I'm more gassy now. Anyone else have this reaction?

Just out of curiosity, do you buy yours or make it? I've never seen it available commercially. I make mine in small batches in my blender.

it could be that you have a sensitivity to soy; like everyone else suggested, you could alwyas try other kinds of "milks." personally, i don't use any kinds of milks.

Do you have the same effect with all the brands of soy milk you've tried? It could be an additive like carageenan (algae used to provide a thick texture) causing the gas.



I found soy milk made me gassy at first, but since I've been drinking it exclusively for a number of years the effect seems to have passed. So it might go away once your body gets used to it. You could also try having smaller amounts of soy milk more frequently and see if that makes it easier to digest.

Soy makes me a bit gassy, but I consider that lucky since I'm completely allergic to other beans. (Hummus! Why must you treat me so? )



Almond milk is a delicacy My mom got me some of the chocolate kind... That stuff is SMOOTH... ahh...

Gawd, I was just mentioning this too my roomate/friend after we bought some soy cheese, soy milk, soy nog, and soy ice cream. \\<.< I've always been gassy, but I've been super gassy since I moved in with her. Boy do I have stories about it when I was at work. ^.^;;;



<.< I just realized tonight alone I had soy sour cream on beans, soy nog, and some soy milk. Yay below the aura of stench around meeeee.

No, I haven't that gassy. I don't think soy milk lead you're more gassy. There must be other reason.
