Vanilla Edensoy Extra is smooth, delicious, and nourishing organic soymilk fortified with the finest bio-available vegan vitamins and minerals that can be procured:
• Beta Carotene - the precursor to vitamin A from the sea plant, Dunaliella salina.
• Calcium Carbonate - a mineral kingdom calcium that's absorbed most readily and best harmonizes with all the other Edensoy ingredients.
• Vitamin D2 - increases bone absorption of calcium. Extracted from yeast.
• Vitamin B12 - an easy to assimilate, coveted vegetable source B12. Rare and essential to cellular function.
• Vitamin E - an essential and powerful antioxidant.
Vanilla Edensoy Extra is the only fortified soymilk in U.S.A. made with 100 percent real, pure vanilla extract. Pure vanilla extract is from vanilla beans of the orchid tree, Vanilla planifolia, which contain more than 250 flavor and aromatic compounds creating its unique flavor, aroma, and psychological effect upon us. It is labor intensive to extract these compounds. Vanilla orchids are hand pollinated to produce vanilla pods called beans. The beans are hand harvested, trimmed, and allowed to age or cure; the best are aged for two years. Pure vanilla extract tastes clean and exciting, is naturally sweet and has alluring aroma. Imitation vanilla, artificial vanilla, and vanillin are petrochemical concoctions. Those labeled on packages as natural vanilla flavor and organic natural vanilla flavor are assembled using hexane gas, animal glycerin, propylene glycol, and a googol of other synthetics. They pale in comparison to the complex flavor and aroma found in 100 percent real, pure vanilla extract.
Vanilla Edensoy Extra has lovely vanilla bouquet and a clean taste that is naturally sweet. It provides whole, balanced soy protein, healthy essential fatty acids, and high energy complex carbohydrates. All its soy protein is from Midwestern whole beans with all eighteen amino acids; not from the ubiquitous soy isolate. We use gentle, unrefined, naturally malted organic wheat and barley extract as a sweetener, and Edensoy is the only soymilk made with nourishing Japanese kombu seaweed.
In January 1983 Eden discovered soymilk made using techniques pioneered at Cornell University. Engineered in Japan, Eden improved the ingredients and Edensoy was introduced in July 1983. Its phenomenal success created a new grocery category - nondairy liquid food. Soybeans require specific preparation and thorough cooking to transform them into easy-to-digest, nutritious food. Edensoy is skillfully made at our certified organic Michigan plant with over 240 continuous quality control checks. It embodies our thorough research into how best choose and prepare soybeans. From the double reverse osmosis purified water, a patented enzyme invalidator, to the Swedish aseptic packaging equipment, every step contributes to greater value and the best possible nourishment from whole soy. Edensoy is the only soymilk made in the U.S.A. that is properly prepared to nurture human beings.
Highest Score in Soy Report
Eden Foods achieved the highest score, 955 out of 1,000 and the top rating in the Organic Soy Scorecard that presents a study carried out over a year-and-half into the social, environmental, and health impacts of soy foods in North America. The Cornucopia Institute, an independent advocate working to preserve organic integrity and create economic justice for family farmers, released the report May 2009. They evaluated sixty-two organic brands. Soy foods were rated on ten criteria including sourcing, stringency of organic certifier, and prevention of GMO and chemical contamination. Eden was declared a "hero" and ranked by far the highest in the organic soy industry. Read the report at: www.cornucopia.org
Seventy-three percent of Edensoy's package is from certified sustainable forests that ensure biological biodiversity and protect endangered species. They are recyclable and use no refrigeration in transport or storage. Greenhouse gas producing refrigeration is unnecessary until the package is opened at home. The EPA reports pollution from refrigeration has increased exponentially since the 1990s. Edensoy avoids unnecessary energy use.

Whole Soy Nourishment
Soybeans have been important food for at least 5,000 years. Western science confirmed soy as very healthy food. In 1999 the FDA recognized the role of soy in reducing cholesterol saying, "25 grams of soy protein a day, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease." Whole organic soy foods, such as Edensoy, best provide the desired benefits. Whole food sources of phyotonutrients are always better than isolates and chemical imitations. The FDA further says, "Diets low in sodium may reduce the risk of high blood pressure, a disease associated with many factors." Vanilla Edensoy Extra is low sodium and rich in vitamin A, calcium, vitamin E, and vitamin B12. A good source of protein, vitamin D, folate B9, and magnesium. Edensoy is made with all natural whole food ingredients, providing the highest quality soy protein and a whole spectrum of balanced nutrients.
As soy became popular for health benefits, commercial food processors rushed through a series of shortcuts to exploit this. Though labeled "healthy" most soy foods are made with cheap processes and ingredients; cheap imported soy and grain, hexane extracted soy protein, all treated with a variety of toxic petrochemicals and unsavory additives. Most use undeclared chemical flavor maskers and refined sugars. Evaporated or dried cane juice is sugar, and organic sugar is an oxymoron. Edensoy is the best choice when seeking high quality, pure food.
