Dear Patrick
Soy milk is a good alternative to milk from animals such as cows or goats, if you are a vegetarian or suffer from an allergy or intolerance to lactose (milk sugar) or certain proteins found in milk and dairy products. Make sure that the soy milk you purchase is fortified with calcium at the same level as is found in milk and dairy products (i.e. 1 mg per ml) to prevent calcium deficiencies.
Best regards
