BNI™ 027.08s: Low-fat soymilk (average) - 2008

dietBNI™ 27.08s: Low-fat soymilk (average), AUS / NZ, 2008.

This is the nutritional value of low-fat soymilk in New Zealand in 2008. It represents the average aggregated nutritional value of a sample of 7 brands and sub-brands of low-fat soymilk available in New Zealand and Australia in 2007 and 2008, mostly produced in Australia. The sample was collated as part of a research on the nutritional composition of milk and milk alternatives in New Zealand. This nutritional profile (see figure below) can be summarised as being, mainly, biased towards excess of sugar, high in protein and sodium, adequate in carbohydrate, adequate in fat and low in saturated fat, and low in fiber.

This nutritional profile may be more representative of those who change brands often, as well as of the population, in general. However, it is less representative of the universe of brands on offer and of those consumers who prefer a particular brand of low-fat soymilk, for which a prototypical nutritional profile may be more relevant (see foodBNI).
