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.

    • 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.

  1. 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!

  2. 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

    • 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.

  3. 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.
