New Cocoa Edensoy is a significantly improved version of its organic, chocolate predecessor. Great taste, 8 grams protein, vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients are better than ever. Rich, dark, organic cocoa powder from the Dominican Republic milled to powder in Europe, pure water, 240 continuous quality control checks, and miso maker know-how to prepare soybeans for human assimilation, create the most pleasing satisfaction. Edensoy was introduced in 1983 and remains the only American soymilk that is properly prepared to nurture human beings. It ranks number one of sixty-two brands extensively researched in the Cornucopia Institute's Soyfoods Reportcard. Organic whole grain malt and maple syrup are the sweeteners of Cocoa Edensoy. America's first Non-GMO verified soymilk in 2009. It has been GMO free since 1983, and remains pure today.
Cocoa Edensoy is properly prepared U.S.A. family farm, Non-GMO, organic soybeans. We visit the farmers, their fields, and families regularly. Long-term organic methods have created rich, vital soil that produces food brimming with energy, superior taste and nutrition.
The dark cocoa is Eden selected pure organic cocoa from the Dominican Republic. After harvest and a much involved traditional handling that includes fermenting the bean pods, they are dried and shipped to Europe to be milled into traditional dark cocoa powder. All of this is done without harsh, character changing, alkali processing used on commercial cocoa.
Cocoa Edensoy has the new ingredients gellan and locust bean vegetable gums to hold the cocoa particles in suspension or solution. They replace the former seaweed based thickener.
Research shows that chocolate, particularly dark cocoa powder, has beneficial antioxidant flavonoids a.k.a. flavonols including procyanidins, epicatechins, and catechins. Joe Vinson, Ph.D., chemistry professor at University of Scranton states, "Think real cocoa. Pure cocoa powder (not instant hot chocolate) has the most antioxidants, followed by dark chocolate, then milk chocolate."
Cocoa Edensoy is smooth and delicious. It provides whole bean soy protein, healthy essential fatty acids, high energy slow burning complex carbohydrates, and an array of nutrients. All the soybeans are U.S.A. whole organic beans with all eighteen amino acids; never soy isolate or cheap imported, questionably organic beans. We use gentle, unrefined, naturally malted organic whole grain syrup and organic maple syrup to sweeten it.
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. It embodies a miso maker's know-how in the choice of beans and how it is prepared. Double reverse osmosis purified well water, a patented enzyme invalidator, and Swedish aseptic packaging equipment, all contribute to appropriate value and the best possible nourishment from whole soy. Edensoy is the only soymilk made in the U.S.A. properly engineered to nurture human beings.
On August 18, 2008 Eden Foods submitted Edensoy to the Non-GMO Project (The Project) for non-gmo verification. After thorough scientific study of everything from seed to aseptic carton, Edensoy became the first soymilk in America to be verified compliant with The Project's standards for avoiding GMOs (genetically modified organisms).
Soybeans today are predominantly genetically engineered. In 1993 Eden pioneered its processes to avoid genetically engineered organisms and their derivatives in food. To keep Edensoy non-GMO there is much work required, including multiple tests of all seed, of the plants while they grow, after harvest at the elevator, and upon receipt at the soymilk factory. We also avoid all pharmaceutical enzymes and we know all the farms, fields, and farmers. When the
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 soyfoods 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. It evaluated sixty-two organic soyfood brands and rated them on ten criteria including sourcing, stringency of organic certifier, and prevention of GMO and chemical contamination. Eden Foods was declared a "hero" and ranked by far the highest in the organic soy industry. Read the report at: www.cornucopia.org
73% of Edensoy's package is from certified sustainable forests that ensure biological biodiversity and protect endangered species. They require no refrigeration in transport or storage and are recyclable. 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, "... may reduce the risk of heart disease." Whole organic soyfoods, such as Edensoy, best provide the desired benefits. Whole food sources of phyotonutrients are always better than isolates and chemical imitations. Cocoa Edensoy is low sodium and a good source of potassium, protein, calcium, iron, niacin B3, vitamin B6, folate B9, magnesium, and copper. Edensoy is made with Eden selected whole food ingredients. It provides the highest quality soy protein and a whole spectrum of balanced nutrients.
As soyfoods became popular for health benefits, especially soymilk, commercial food processors rushed through every cost cutting short-cut shortcuts to exploit us. Though labeled "healthy" most soyfoods are made with cheap processes and ingredients; cheap imported soy and grain, hexane extracted soy protein commonly treated with toxic petrochemicals and unsavory additives. Undeclared chemical flavor maskers are the norm, as are refined sugars. Evaporated or dried cane juice is sugar. 'Organic Sugar' is an oxymoron. Edensoy is the best choice for great taste, nourishment, and satisfying pure food.
Use Cocoa Edensoy for hot or cold beverages and to make smoothies, smoothie bowls, freeze pops, and desserts. Use it cup-for-cup when substituting for dairy milk.
