Someone the other day told me that she heard a doctor who gives lectures say that people should not drink "too much" soy beverage. Has anyone ever heard this before? I haven't and can't fathom it being true. It seems like an extremely healthy thing to drink. Just wondered if there is a limit to how much of this is okay to drink? I doubt it, though.

I have heard some concerns about ingesting too much soy, but I have no idea what is legitimate concern versus scare tactics.

the problem with most soy beverages is that they are not made with the whole bean, but are a combination of ingredients with "soy protein isolate" (aka "isolated soy protein"). all of the negative press i've seen about soy has talked about the danger of eating too much soy <b>protein</b>, not the whole soybean itself.<br><br><br><br>
we purchased a soymilk maker in the autumn so that we could avoid using beverages of questionable origin.

Hhhmmm...me thinks Kreeli is correct. Everything I read was about "soy protein", which is all the rage now. I personally hold the view --> take all things in moderation (alchohol and sex being key exceptions.)

I thought about the scare tactics thing that it seems the meat industry distributes, Tame. They could be behind it.<br><br><br><br>
Oh yes, soy gas, MsRuthieB....don't you think we could use that for an alternate fuel source?! lol.<br><br><br><br>
Kreeli, I haven't heard the reasoning behind that yet. But I'm not really worried about it. I am wondering how they seperate the protien from the bean, though. I've never heard of a soybev maker. Does the soybev taste better, too?<br><br><br><br>
Tame, moderation is something I've never known but should, I guess.

i don't know the exact process they use to seperate the protein from the bean, but i bet soilman does, and i bet it uses lots of chemicals and isn't good for you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
and no, the soymilk maker beverage doesn't taste better than storebought soymilk, but you get used to it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

It sounds like fun to make your own soymilk. Pluse, who needs all the additives. Do you have a recipe, Kreeli? Maybe I could use one of two contraptions I have instead.
