In my early twenties, I was a fake vegetarian. While I loved a glass of cold milk and knew of the important nutrients it contained, I wasn’t convinced that I needed all the “extras”, specifically, calories and fat.
My beverage of choice back then… So Good.
So Good is a Canadian company whose beverages are a delicious and healthy alternative to dairy milk. Fortified with 15 essential nutrients, a 250 mL serving of So Good contains as much calcium, vitamin D and vitamin B12 as a cup of dairy milk.
To this day, I’m still a fan for all the same reasons and some. The calories, fat, cholesterol, sodium and sugars are all lower (compared to the 2% milk that we purchase). Thankfully I don’t have to worry about any of these numbers (yet) but I really enjoy the taste and find that it quenches my thirst. With only 8g of sugar per serving, I don’t feel like my sugars are spiking (I’m hypoglycemic) yet it tastes like a light-weight milkshake treat.
Original is my favourite flavour, but there are choices such as; Vanilla, Chocolate, Strawberry, Original and No Sugar added. In addition, many flavours have low-fat and Omega DHA options. There really is something for everyone’s taste buds and/or requirements.
So Good Fortified Soy Beverages display the Health CheckTM logo as they meet the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada’s established nutrient criteria. Being a label reader, I searched some of the ingredients that I didn’t recognize and learned that Tricalcium Phosphate occurs naturally in cow’s milk.
So Good is not only useful as a beverage but also as a recipe substitute.
Uncle Eric had us over for a going away dinner/the kids birthday so I baked a cake. I decided to replace the milk with So Good and it came out as moist as ever.
Even Uncle Eric, the consummate sceptic couldn’t tell the difference!
