yes, I understand that. we buy Westsoy's unsweetened soy milk made
whole, organic soy beans (actually I think it's fairly easy to make
yourself. My acupuncturist told me how once). And my husband drinks a
smoothie made from this every morning. I worry about his consuming so
soy milk every day (about a quart) but he says he's found something
works for him and attributes it to the protein.
