Unhappy Curdling Soy Milk

Does anyone know why warmed soy milk would curdle when added to any hot liquid?

I used it twice before in soup and it curdled but now it is doing it in coffee and tea and hot cereal etc

I've used it for years. Hasn't done this before.

It looks horrid but tastes the same.

Different brand? Different ingredients?

Soymilk curdles when exposed to certain salts, acids, and enzymes. This is how tofu is made: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tofu#Production

Acid ingredients in drinks can cause this curdling. Mineral-fortified hot cereals might also cause the curdling

Not sure why this wasn't happening before. Are you using a different type of coffee, tea, hot cereal, or soymilk?

Hi, thanks for the answers.

Same coffee, same tea, same brand of cereal (oats). Only difference is we used to buy it in plastic bottles but now we get it in cardboard cartons. Some of them do the curdling thing some don't.

I wonder if it could be the addition of carrageenan in the one that didn't curdle, and just beans and water in the cardboard containers?
Carrageenan is added for creaminess, it may also be an emulsifier? Just thinking..

I've heard people say they need to add soy milk (or other non dairy?) to the cup first and slowly add the hot liquid to prevent curdling. Like when you "temper" hot and cold ingredients, like in egg custards.

Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good
