|Vegans and people who are
lactose intolerant appreciate soy
milk as a dairy-free substitute in
milkshakes, puddings, soups, and creamy
milk contains fiber;
it's a good source of protein, low
in saturated fat and cholesterol-free.
Nowadays, it is very easy to make
at home. With 3 cups of soy beans,
we can make about 1 gallon of soy
Following is one of the simple ways
to make a very delicious and nutritious
drink for the entire family.
Soak 3 cups of dried soy beans over
night or for at least 8 hours.
and carefully rinse soybeans then
pass them through the Omega 8003 juicer.
This step takes about 5 minutes.
1 gallon of drinking, distilled or
spring water into a large stainless
steel pot. Add the mashed soy beans
into water and stir for few minutes.
the mashed soy and water through the
Omega juicer again to extract soy
milk and pour the soy milk into another
the soy milk though a cheese cloth
the final time before cooking it.
It takes about 10-15 minutes from
steps 3 to 5.
- Cook Soy Milk
an important step. The
cooking time is important, as raw
soybeans contain a factor known as
a tripsin inhibitor. Essentially,
this means that the protein contained
in the beans cannot be properly assimilated
by the body unless the beans are well
cooked. Soy milk should be cooked
for at least 25 minutes from the first
boiling time. Another challenge is
the soy milk may stick to the bottom
of the pot. A wooden spatula is very
handy for stirring the soy milk.
Put the pot of soy milk on the cooking
stove. Use high heat. Stir the soy
milk clockwise every 25-30 seconds.
Make sure there is no soy milk stuck
at the bottom. If it is stuck, use
the wooden spatula to remove it.
When it boils, adjust the
heat to medium, keeping it at a boiling
level. At this time, you only need
to stir the soy milk once in a while.
The soy milk may also rise very quickly.
If it does, take the pot off the stove
for about 30 seconds and put it back
afterwards. It may rise about 3-4
Use a timer to set the time for about
25 minutes then turn off the heat.
Soy milk is now ready to drink or
for making tofu.
