    Cool Almond milk vs Soy milk Questions?


    Does anyone know anything about Almond Milk? I have found several studies on Soy milk and isoflavones, but I was wandering if almonds contain isoflavones.

    I tasted some vanilla almond milk at work the other day and its taste is way better than soy milk and it has less calories and what not so I am wandering if it is actually better than soy milk in terms of isoflavones.

    thanks, Colochine

    i don't believe so. isoflavones are primarily produced by the bean family.

    almond milk is delicious, i tend to make my own. most of the commercial almond milk are either blanched, pasteurized, ultra-pasteurized, homogenized, etc. not saying that's bad, but it's all a matter of personal preference.

    to make my own almond milk, i soak raw almonds in water overnight. 8-12 hours. then i blend them in a blender until smooth. place a bowl under a strainer and strain the blended almonds. i drink the almond milk and eat the almond shavings.

    phytotestosterone? i'm not 100% positive of anything with phytotestosterone, maybe fenugreek, maca root, horny goat weed, and/or tribulus? not sure. and i'm not sure phytotest would be a good idea if they work in the same way as phytoestrogens.

    I have not tried almond milk either. I think after reading this post I think I might try it.
