hello !!!<br><br><br><br>
this has been on my mind a while and i can't seem to find the answer on the 'net.<br><br><br><br>
can anyone tell me how much water it takes to make 1 litre of soy milk?<br><br>
i know it takes roughly 1000 litres of water to make 1 litre of cows milk but i'm really interested in the soy side of it too.<br><br><br><br>
thanks if you can help!<br><br>

Do you know how soy milk is made? I think they just add soy products and other thickners etc to water so it takes one litre of water to make one litre of soy milk.

soy milk is basically a process of boiling water and soybeans then making a liquid out of it through a cheesecloth ..... (?) you can add sweeteners if desired ...

yes, we have one, and my husband says it's his favourite of all our kitchen robots! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> we saved up for it for a few months because we realized with the two kids we were paying almost $40 or $50 bucks a week for storebought milk and the machine would save us a lot of money in the long run.<br><br><br><br>
however, i thought the original question was asking, how much water does it take for farmers to plant, grow, cultivate and then turn the soybean into "milk"? how much water is used in it's agriculture?
