Expert Tips

  • Soy foods, such as soy milk, may contain soy protein and isoflavones. These two components show promise in lowering blood cholesterol and reducing risk of heart disease.
  • For Raspberry-Chocolate Cupcakes, omit the vanilla and the espresso powder. Add 2 teaspoons raspberry extract with the soymilk. Serve with a few fresh raspberries.
