FAQ

Q: What is a soymilk maker? Can it only be used to make soymilk? 

A: Soymilk makers are kitchen appliances originally designed to make soymilk. They combine both heating and blending functions to create a speedy, hands-off machine. Soymilk in particular requires high heating temperatures to make it safe to drink, which prompted us to develop our sensitive cooking technology. Too much heat, and the soymilk would burn, but too little, and the enzymes would not be deactivated. This technology, combined with our Perfect Grind ™ system, allows our machines to easily make not only soymilk, but nut and seed milks, soups, and porridges.

Q: Why isn’t there a filter? Will I have to strain the milk?

A: Some soymilk makers, and the first generations of our Soyajoy and Soyapower machines contain filters inside the machine to strain the milk. We have discovered that filtering machines are often less effective and difficult to clean. After introducing our new, filter-less design, we received overwhelmingly positive feedback on how much easier the machine was to use, and have been filter-less since then.

Q: Why not make soymilk in a blender?

A: The main difficulty with making soymilk (and other nut and seed milks) in a blender are with cooking and ease of use. Soymilk requires cooking, which when coupled with blending the hot liquid in a blender, creates a time-consuming and messy process.  Powerful blenders are also several times the price of our machines, and demand constant attention while blending. Our soymilk makers streamline the process for easy, hands-free milks that the machine handles all on its own.

Q: What’s the difference between the SoyaPower and the SoyaJoy?

A: In essence, the SoyaPower is smaller and thermal plastic coated, whereas the SoyaJoy is larger, with a stainless steel outer. Both have the same high-tech features and heating/blending elements. Visit the SoyaPower and SoyaJoy product pages to view more details.

Q : I’ve heard that soy is bad for you. Is this true?

A: The nutrients in soy help prevent cancer, fight heart disease, and lower risk of osteoporosis. The natural plant estrogens in it are over 1000 times weaker than the estrogens produced by the human body. Furthermore, the carrageenan, and additives in commercial soymilks that have been purported to cause inflammation will stay out of your homemade milk.

Commercial soy products may go through processes which lower the nutritious content or isolate particular compounds. Naturally, this might lead to consuming more than a normal amount of one particular part. Furthermore, studies often use unrealistically large amounts, solely soy isolates, or animal test subjects, which can lead to misinterpreted results. When you make your own soymilk and okara at home, you are using the whole soybean. This keeps everything at a healthy and natural level. Also, several of the “anti-nutrients” in raw soy are safely destroyed by the high temperature our machines heat the milk to.

Many health sites do detailed analysis’s of all kinds of food, and it’s important to watch out for fear-mongering and inaccurate information. Soy is packed with protein, fiber, and other nutrients, and like any other food, best enjoyed as part of a healthy diet.
