Quoted from Milton
Organic EdenSoy Extra (Vanilla) Soymilk Fortified with Vitamins & Calcium contains:  Purified Water, Organic Soybeans, Naturally Malted Organic Wheat and Barley Extract, Vanilla Extract, Calcium Carbonate, Kombu Seeweed, Sea Salt, Vitamin E, Beta Carotene, Vitamin D2, Vitamin B-12.  I hope this info is helpful.


I don't think we O's can have some of these ingredients... so i was hoping for a soy milk offered at starbucks that was just soy milk and water.  

but that is a big dream from what i've read on this thread!

West Soy has only soy and water.  That's it.

This has nothing to do with Starbuck's coffee, but the last time I was there I got a green tea and they use this incredibly hot water and we were in the car and I was holding the cup and the top popped off and burned both my hands pretty bad.  So, I've decided no more tea for me at Starbucks either - especially since the water they use is way too hot for green tea brewing anyway.  I do best if I just don't even go in Starbucks.  Even though I love all the coffee drinks - they do not love me at all.  


You mean you didn't sue like the McDonalds lady??  J/K!  

I agree, it's just better not to go.  I didn't know green tea has certain brewing temperatures....how hot is too hot?

Quoted from Edna
Starbucks is fairly evil.  Even if they did just produce a McCartney album and even if they do sport some of the trappings of coolness and hipness in their ownership and culture.  The fact remains that their practices are just plain yukky:

http://www.organicconsumers.org/Starbucks/index.cfm

I have never purchased anything at a Starbucks.  I've set foot in the place twice--once, looking for a nice Thermos, and once because a friend I was on a long walk across the city with wanted to stop in there to use the facilities.  Both times the place (two different Starbucks) creeped me out.  Why on earth spend all that money for a huge vat of caffeine, sugar, calories and transfat?  I guess I've just been po' for long enough now that I literally can't wrap my head around shelling out such a huge profit margin for them, only to receive empty, blood-sugar-havoc-wreaking calories.


Plus the place is too crowded, the music is WAY too loud (I love music and I love loud music but this was just overpoweringly loud--WHY?--I hate that in restaurant-type settings when you might wish to TALK/LISTEN to someone), all the chairs/tables look uncomfortable and, to top it off, they've got the Organic Consumer's Association p*ssed off at 'em, which is an organization I highly respect.

No...they can keep their Mocha Choca Ya Ya Da Da Lattes.  Not feeling it.

...(Although I have zero doubt that the thing would taste FABULOUS and be totally addictive *lol*...yet another reason to avoid the place like the plague.)

There is some hope (until my espresso machine purchase).  Checked with a different Starbucks about steaming my own soymilk and the Barista said "Sure."  She has another customer that brings in her own Rice Milk for her drink.  Her container holds enough for a Venti (largest) size drink.  EdenSoy sells individual serving size containers (about 8 oz.) in packages of three.  The Barista indicated they use discretion in situations like this without getting in trouble.  I know enough Baristas at my main location that should take care of my request.  I will give it a try.

Read some labels while in Publix (here in Florida) under West Soy, EdenSoy, and Almond Breeze.  Each company had at least one or more milks that contain Carrageenan.  Obviously, it is always important to read the ingredients.  Surprisingly, Eden has one that contains both Kombu Seaweed and Carrageenan.

"For Green teas, water temperature should be 190 f and brewing time 3 minutes."

No question, the latte at Starbucks is better and Blood Type A-compliant with Vanilla EdenSoy Extra Fortified Soymilk.  Not every location is cooperative, but one Barista noted to make sure they understand why I am making the request.  After all, I am providing a new (unopened) container of milk each time.  Sooooooo good!!!

well here's what I did....we were at the very coffee mega-outlet of which you speak, and I asked for an espresso with a splash of cream, and it had to be real cream. To my surprise, they had it, they showed me, and splashed just  bit in and it was good. I'm thinking cream is a neutral .......could be better than soy milk, I don't know....now this is something I do once a month as a treat.......remember the thread that said soymilk in those boxes is processed at a really high temp (bad)?

The Japanese green tea I get says to pour hot water at 176 degrees F over the tea bag, & wait 30 seconds before removing the tea bag from the cup.  I think 30 seconds is all the time that the water stays at 176!  I'm forever getting it too hot, letting it overcool, and then reheating it which I recently read is not exactly the best choice because "freshly boiled water has higher oxygen levels which affect flavor".

Nevertheless, it is really nice to see these discussions about the antioxidant rich/healthy cups of green tea...it reminds me to enjoy them later in the day after my morning cup is long gone.

I've always thought it would be nice to have a soymilk that was fortified with the Calcium and Vitamin D, but realize that whichever company that might manufacture it would probably add a bunch of avoids in with them, too.

Jayney, I think that you made a great choice and that choices like that are what seperate those who are able to sustain any kind of "diet" for a lifetime and those who are doomed to go careening off at some point because it is too restrictive.  You chose to treat yourself to something, to allow imperfection, yet you also went a route that was a pure, whole food route.  I think pure cream beats out overly-processed commercial "soy milk" any day.  I know it is an avoid, but if you just have a little cream in there as a treat, then so be it, especially if you are having EXPRESSO* anyway ~lol~.

I think you chose wisely, young Luke Skywalker.
