Generally soya foods contain less sugars than similar dairy products. Dairy foods contain the milk sugar lactose, which is not present in soya foods. Semi-skimmed milk contains 5g of lactose per 100mls. Whereas 100mls of a non-flavoured soya drink contains around 2.5g of sugars. Only the smallest amounts of sugars are used to ensure taste is not compromised. This makes soya foods a perfect fit into a healthy, balanced diet.
