Review of Lidl Unsweetened Soya Milk

Well my mission to try some new dairy free milks has not been that successful. One of my favourite milks is soya only mainly because I personally find it easier to cook with. So when I saw that Lidl had their own unsweetened soya milk with their regular fresh milk I just had to give it a try.

I personally liked the packaging design with the red colouring to the top with the picture of milk being poured into a glass. The ingredients list is on the back of the carton with water, hulled soya beans, calcium phosphates, maltodextrin, stabilizer, gellan gum, natural flavouring noted. I’m intrigued to know what the natural flavouring is. The soya is clearly highlighted in bold as an allergen. There is no may contain warning. The milk is labelled as being dairy free and suitable for vegans.

On opening the carton I noted a slight nuttiness aroma to the milk. It poured easily into a glass and was the typical cream colour you get with soya milk. It was slightly thick in consistency but not creamy. On sipping the milk it was smooth in texture and tasted a little nutty very similar to other brands of soya milk I have previously tried. I warmed the milk for 90 seconds in the microwave ready for my famous Weetabix test. 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 Weetabix it tasted just as a Weetabix should the milk did not impact on its flavour. For me personally this is a big plus because a couple of milks that I have previously tried have made my Weetabix have a slight artificial sweet flavour.

So would I recommend this soya milk? Yes I would. The slightly nutty aroma and flavour was spot on. It wasn’t artificially sweet in flavour and had a nice consistency. So if you follow a dairy free or a vegan diet why not give this soya milk a try. So thank you Lidl for producing a soya milk that I can enjoy.

    I always used to drink soya milk when I was a kid as my parents drank it. I wasn’t fussed at first, but I soon got used to it! Great review. Thanks for linking up to #ThatFridayLinky

    Oh that sounds good. I bet it was cheaper than Alpro too! Thanks for joining in with #FreeFromFridays.

      Hi, it’s a lot cheaper I think it was 55p but I could be wrong. A bargain 😊.

    I will have to go to Lidl today- unsweetened soya milk is hard to find thanks for sharing

    • July 15, 2017 / 5:53 am

      Hi, I am finding it much easier to get these days. i hope that you find this to try.

      • July 15, 2017 / 6:00 am

        Where are you from? Here in Germany you find most things are sweetened- found it at a supermarket 15 km away – Lidl is in my town that would be so cool

        • July 15, 2017 / 6:07 am

          Hi, I’m from the UK. Most of our dairy free milks have an unsweetened version. I’m surprised that most of yours are sweetened.

    Soya milk! Interesting! What is the difference between milk and soya milk?

    • July 15, 2017 / 5:52 am

      Gosh I’m afraid you are asking me the wrong question as I can’t have regular milk. I’m sorry. Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to comment Chloe.

    Great article. As someone who doesn’t have dairy, I am always on the look out for alternatives. I personally love coconut milk – have you tried that? xxx

    • July 16, 2017 / 4:09 pm

      Thank you for your kind comments I have tried coconut milk almond and soya are my favourites.

    Sadly Lidl here in greece do not carry soy milk! But I havent been to a store for a very long time maybe they brought that in! I would be so happy!

    • July 17, 2017 / 6:36 pm

      Hi, I hope that they have. Enjoy if you can find some.

  19. July 17, 2017 / 7:47 pm

    Love that alternatives to ordinary milk are now so readily available to us

    • July 17, 2017 / 7:54 pm

          They sure are filling and a healthy breakfast.

  21. July 18, 2017 / 6:45 pm

    #dreamteam i personally prefer rice milk or almond milk… i always imagine little grains of rice with udders 😉

    • July 18, 2017 / 6:47 pm

      This made me smile. I love almond milk but not sure about rice milk.

      • July 19, 2017 / 5:22 am

        Haha worth a try, its sweet

  22. July 22, 2017 / 2:12 am

    I saw this recently and thought it was great that Lidl do a dairy free alternative. My son is dairy intolerant, but unfortunately we were told to steer clear of soya until he’s over 18 months because apparently it’s quite high in oestrogen…! Who would thought?! #bigpinklink

    • July 22, 2017 / 7:07 am

      Hi, thanks for taking the time to read and comment on my review. I had heard of this before about soya relating to the menopause. I hope that you have found some nice alternative milks to try the instead.

  23. July 23, 2017 / 7:50 am

    This sounds really good, it can often be hard to find nice alternatives to milk. I had that issue with my son being lactose intolerant but I heard there is too much hormone in soya for boys so we tried other options. That may be wrong though. Thanks for linking up with the #bigpinklink this week.

    • July 23, 2017 / 6:10 pm

      Hi, I have heard of this as well, always best to stay clear if you are not sure. At least there other readily available choices now.

  24. July 24, 2017 / 6:51 pm

    I am going to have to give this a try. In general as a family we keep meaning to try soya milk, but out of habit we reach for the normal cows milk. I wonder if it would make a good milkshake. #DreamTeam x

    Hi. Are you able to compare it to Aldi’s; Acti Leaf soya milk brand own version?

    Thanks for your review.

    • January 14, 2018 / 6:31 pm

      Hi, I am sorry I not able to do this as I have yet to try Aldi’s version. I do not have a local store, sorry.
