Review of Tesco’s Everyday Value UHT Unsweetened Soya Milk

Well I have managed to try and review a couple of brands of alternative dairy free milks on my blog recently. It was recommended that I try some own branded value milks to compare and contrast the brands and ascertain if price was a factor in the quality and taste of the various milks. I was in Tesco’s the other day so I thought I would grab a carton of their value soya milk. Now I personally prefer unsweetened milks so I thought I would give this a go. It comes in a simple plain pretty unappealing light tan coloured carton with a cup of tea on the front and back. A 250ml carton contains 85 calories, 4.8g of fat, 0.3g of sugar and 0.2g of salt.
On opening the milk and pouring it into the a glass it had a slightly dark rich cream colour, that was pretty identical to other own branded soya milks I have tried. It also looked slightly thicker and creamier than other milks that I have tried. There was no sweet artificial aroma noted, in fact it was pretty neutral, which I personally like. On sipping the milk I thought it had a pretty neutral taste, and defintley didn’t have an artificially sweet taste. I really liked this, the texture was slightly thick and smooth and was spot on.
I then heated the milk in the microwave for the same time as the other milks I have tried to have with my old faithful weetabix. Being low in calories made it a perfect addition to my fasting day as part of the 5:2 diet. It heated well and did not change its consistency or form a slight skin to the top. I mixed it up with my weetabix to its usual baby food consistency. The weetabix tasted as it should be, the milks flavour didn’t impact on its flavour. There was no sweeteness noted. For me personally it was the perfect way to enjoy my weetabix. Would I have this milk again defintley, it was one of the nicest alternative milks I have tried. So if you follow a dairy, lactose, gluten, wheat or nut free diet or are vegetarian or vegan this milk is defintley worth a try. So thank you Tesco’s for producing a great unsweetened soya milk.
