    its magical in that taken in sufficiently high amounts, it could turn a male into a female

    I'm not sure of the specifics, but soy 'milk' is just milk in texture... i'm sure you could turn things like potatoes into 'potato milk', but then again, i suppose you would just call it soup.

    My guess would be because Soy is so complete in that it has most of the 20 amino acids.


    Why that would have anything to do with the fact that they make it into milk...I don't know.

    Re: Soy

    You know, I really have no idea. I only drink soy or almond milks, because I'm lactose-intolerant, but I've never found out how they make it into so many things.

    I'll have to do some research...

    This is the site that I learned to make soy and nut milks from. It has quite a bit of information.
