Review of Soya Soleil Soya Milk

Well I am well and truly on my mission to try and share my thoughts on alternative milks which are suitable for a dairy and or lactose free diet. For a long time I have enjoyed soya milk as part if my diet mainly with my breakfast. I had not heard of the Soya Soleil brand before and was intrigued so I had to give it a try. It is UHT and comes in a 1 litre carton. I found the carton warm and inviting with a mainly blue carton with a picture of a refreshing looking milk being poured into a glass. A 100ml serving contains 28 calories, 0.1g of sugar, and 0.03g of salt. It is marketed as being dairy and lactose free, being made from non GM soya beans and being suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
On opening the carton I noted no real aroma to the milk. It poured easily into a glass and was the typical cream colour you get with soya milk. It was nice and thick in consistency but not creamy. On sipping the milk it was nice and smooth and tasted like the other brands of soya milk I have previously tried. It tasted slightly artificially sweet, despite being unsweetened.
I warmed the milk for 90 seconds in the microwave ready to have with my weetabix for breakfast. It microwaved well and did not separate, or form a skin to the top of the milk. It was absorbed easily by the weetabix. On tasting the breakfast there was a slight subtle hint of artificial sweetness noted which lingered. I have experienced this with other unsweetened brands of milk also but to more of an extent. I personally found this a little disappointing as I don’t expect the milk to affect the flavour of my breakfast. That said it had a somewhat nice neutral flavour. It was great to find another milk to try. Would I have it again, yes I would but I have personally tried nicer soya milks. Interestingly, the labelling states made for Alpro (UK). So if like me you follow a dairy and lactose free diet or a vegetarian or vegan and want to try a different soya milk then why not give this one a try.
