BNI™ 048.17f: Standard soymilk (average)

dietBNI™ 48.17f: Standard soymilk (average), AUS / NZ, 2011.

This is the nutritional value of standard soymilk (ie, with a fat content of about 3g per 100ml) in New Zealand. Below is an analysis of the average aggregated nutritional value of a sample of 10 brands and sub-brands of low-fat soymilk, mostly imported from 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 can be summarised as being, mainly, biased towards excess of fat, adequate in protein, low in saturated fat, low in carbohydrate but high in sugar, low in fiber and high in sodium. It also provides about 124mg of calcium per 100ml.

This nutritional value may be more representative of those who change brands often, as well as 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 value may be more relevant (see foodBNI).
