FAQ

Edensoy Organic Soymilk


What is the shelf life of Edensoy, before and after opening?
Before opening, one year from produced date. See package for best if used by date.

Can Edensoy be used in recipes as a substitute for dairy milk?
Yes, one to one. To replace dairy buttermilk in recipes, mix 1 Tablespoon of Eden Organic Apple Cider Vinegar or Eden Organic Brown Rice Vinegar with 1 cup of Edensoy Original, Vanilla, or Extra, and let sit for 5 to 7 minutes until it thickens. This can also be used as an egg re-placer in baking. When using Edensoy as a replacement for dairy milk in sauces and gravies, do not bring to a rolling boil. Boiling will cause it to curdle. Simply heat to almost boiling and reduce the flame.

Is Edensoy safe to drink for people who are lactose intolerant?
Yes it is, and contains no dairy products.

Does Edensoy or any Eden beverage contain any animal by-products?
We do not use any animal by-products in Edensoy or any Eden beverage.

Does Edensoy contain any isoflavones?
Yes, it contains naturally occurring isoflavones only from the whole soybean. Please check the 'Detailed Description', by product name, to obtain the amount per serving; the isoflavone content varies with each variety of Edensoy.

Are the soybeans in Edensoy genetically engineered?
No. Please see our statement on the
Eden GEO Stance.

Where does Eden get the soybeans used to make Edensoy?
All soybeans, in fact all Eden beans, are organically grown only on USA family farms.

Do you have a Gluten Free and a Wheat Free soymilk offering?
Yes, Edensoy Unsweetened is tested gluten free and wheat free.

Why does Edensoy use aseptic packaging?
In making Edensoy we strive to be environmentally responsible. Aseptic cartons deliver food to people with a minimum amount of materials and energy. The cartons are recyclable and their most valuable benefit to the Planet is that they require no refrigeration in transport or storage. To take a food that requires no refrigeration and make it into one that does just for marketing purposes is to Eden environmentally irresponsible.

Are Edensoy cartons recyclable?
Yes. The cartons are separated into their individual components and each material is recycled. For a list of cities that recycle aseptic cartons please visit
www.recyclecartons.com.

Does Edensoy ever come in contact with aluminum in the aseptic carton lining?
No. Edensoy never touches the aluminum that is covered with two layers of Eden selected food grade polyethylene as the food contact surface lining. To achieve shelf stable food without the use of preservatives or refrigeration Edensoy is packed in Tetra Pak® cartons made of over 70 percent paper and an ultra thin layer of aluminum double-coated with polyethylene. Edensoy never comes in contact with the aluminum, and no aluminum or polyethylene has ever been detected in Edensoy beverages.

Does the Edensoy carton contain bisphenol-A (BPA)?

Is the cocoa powder in Edensoy Chocolate produced according to rules of Fair Trade?
Yes. It is produced in a 'Fair Trade' socially responsible manner in the Dominican Republic. After it is harvested it is sent to Holland where it is finely milled.

Is the vanilla in Edensoy really pure vanilla extract?
Yes. Edensoy is the only soymilk in North America made with 100% 'pure' vanilla extract. We do not use cheaper imitations such as Natural Vanilla Flavor, Natural Vanilla With Other Natural Flavors (WONF), Organic Natural Vanilla Flavor, and Vanillin. See also:
Vanilla Notes.
