A glass of Pearl Organic Soymilk Tropical Delight is indeed, a delight.
Pearl Organic Soymilk
Protein-Rich, Lactose-Free, Organic & Delicious
CAPSULE REPORT: Soymilk is not just for the vegan or the lactose intolerant. It is a delicious drink in its own right. The flavored soymilks from Pearl prove that if one’s palate is open to anything, one is bound to discover new delights. All of the flavors are equally fine, and at 150 calories a cup (90 calories unsweetened), makes one feel like one is having a higher-calorie smoothie or shake. Others must must love it, too: Sales of soymilk in 2006 were an estimated $575 million, according to Mintel, a market research firm.
We are not lactose intolerant, so only occasionally sip a glass of soy milk—generally as we walk through food shows tasting products. They are generally nice products, but “grocery products”—nothing to turn our heads.
All the more reason we were delighted by Pearl Organic Soymilk a product of Kikkoman, a company that certainly knows its soybeans (thanks to three centuries of experience making soy sauce, among other products). With other delicacies beckoning at other booths, we could hardly tear ourselves away from the self-serve drink dispensing machine, almost certainly making the polite booth representative wish we would leave some product for the other attendees. (We did, but we came back later for more).
It’s healthy, too. In addition to being organic, a cup of soymilk has eight grams of soy protein, is cholesterol- and lactose-free, and has fewer calories and fat than whole or 2% dairy milk (comparison per serving: whole milk 72 fat calories, 2% milk 45 fat calories, Pearl Original 30 fat calories). Pearl also ha more vitamin A, D, calcium, iron, folic acid, less sodium, the same carbohydrate, almost the same protein (7g vs. 8g) and, for the unsweetened soymilk, fewer sugars.
The line is a “pearl” of six fruit flavors. We didn’t taste the unsweetened, but enjoyed the others and thought that Chocolate and Green Tea were exceptional, with a close second for Tropical Delight.
