2. Is So Good made from non-genetically modified soybeans?
Yes! So Good is made from non-genetically modified soy protein by Identity Preservation. What this means is that a monitoring system has been put in place which controls each step of the manufacturing process -- from seed selection to planting and harvesting, transportation and processing -- to ensure no genetically modified soybeans enter the supply stream at any time.

3. How much calcium does So Good fortified soy beverage contain per serving?
Some soy beverages have no added calcium. Each serving of So Good (250ml / 1 cup) contains 308 mg of calcium - almost 1/3 of your daily requirement (based on a 1100 mg daily requirement). The calcium is added in the form of a natural mineral salt called tricalcium phosphate.

4. Is So Good lactose free?
So Good is 100% lactose free and a perfect alternative to milk. Lactose is the natural sugar found in dairy milk and lactase is the enzyme required to break down the lactose. Some people have little or no lactase in their body which means dairy milk and dairy milk products cannot be digested. The common symptoms of lactose intolerance are stomach pains, bloating, gas, diarrhea and nausea.

8. Is So Good suitable for children?
Yes. Choose one of the fortified products for your child or teenager. These are appropriate for children aged 2 years of age and older, because they contain specific vitamins (A, D, B12, and riboflavin) and minerals (calcium and zinc) that are important for growth and vibrant good health. Fortified So Good soy beverages are a benefit for adults, too.

During the first two years of life, breast milk is your best choice, or alternatively an iron fortified infant formula. Both of these are high in healthful fats needed by growing infants. Soy beverage is not a replacement for these beverages and we don't recommend that it be given during the first year of life.

For parents wanting to give fortified So Good to your infant between one and two years of age, we recommend that you consult with a health practitioner. Generally it is considered that fortified soy beverage can be a nutritional replacement for cow's milk providing that parents provide sufficient fat in the child's diet.

10. Can I freeze So Good fortified soy beverages?
We do not recommend that you freeze So Good as the product may separate when thawed. It will be fine for cooking or baking after it has been frozen but it may have a peculiar texture for drinking.

11. Why does So Good fortified soy beverage curdle in coffee/tea?
It is believed that the tannins found in coffee and tea react with the protein in So Good which causes curdling. Always stir well when adding So Good to reduce the curdling.
