Soy actually contains all three of the precious nutrients above. In fact, soy is uniquely rich in all of them. For example, 41.3% of soy is protein, which is much higher than other types of beans.
Where is the dextrose used in your Soyogurts derived from?
The dextrose in our Soyogurts, both Unsweetened Plain, and Vanilla is derived from tapioca.
How can a product be "unsweetened" when it contains dextrose?
The dextrose is used as a fermentation starter for the bacteria in the yogurt. The dextrose is completely consumed before the product is put into cups. The 3 grams of sugar are the naturally occurring sugars in the soybeans.
