The price of store bought versus homemade soymilk will surprise you!
We don’t buy soymilk at the grocery store so I hadn’t given much thought to the price of commercial soymilk these days. I always knew it is less expensive to make your own soymilk rather than buy it from the store. So I went on a quest to check out the prices of unflavored refrigerated commercially processed soymilk. I was really surprised when I looked at the price of 1 half gallon of soymilk; it was $5.29 per half gallon (at this particular store). That’s $0.08 per ounce! Plus, it comes from a factory where it is processed into soymilk.
Using our 13 pound box of Laura® Soybeans I calculated how much it costs per 1/2 gallon for delicious additive free homemade soymilk; $1.16 per half gallon. That’s $4.13 less per half gallon! I never imagined there would be that much of a difference between fresh homemade soymilk and processed soymilk in a carton.
You can make your own soymilk easily at home with either a soymilk machine:
A standard home kitchen soymilk machine will cost around $100.00, they are great and easy to clean.
Or you can make homemade soymilk using a blender, saucepan and cheesecloth or nut bag.
Visit our blog to learn how to make homemade soymilk from a blender and saucepan.
Besides the cost savings of homemade soymilk, you know exactly what ingredients are used. Homemade soymilk is awesome because you only use water and Laura® Soybeans, no other additives, preservatives, processing on long production lines somewhere far away.
When you do make your homemade soymilk, give Laura® soybeans a try. Laura® Soybeans are grown on our 5th generation Chambers family farm. We have been growing NON GMO Food grade soybeans for soymilk and tofu since 1987. Visit www.laurasoybeans.com to learn more.
