Soya Milk or Soy Milk?

This pot of soy beans were being fed with water and waiting to be blended, cooked and sieved the next morning…

 … into soy milk for my breakfast!

Soy milk is a common and popular drink in Singapore. Some prefer it with pastry or deep fried dough fritter as breakfast while some simply drink it on its own. There are many success stories like Yeo’s, Mr Bean and Rochor Beancurd making big bucks selling soy milk as one of their main products.

Have you ever tried homemade soy milk?



  1. to the question, soy or soya…

    its the same thing. Just that soy beans/soy milk is the American way of referring to it. Soya beans/soya milk is the British version

    So in Singapore, as a Commonwealth country, its soya

    fyi 🙂

  2. interesting!

    ah… now I know.

    Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  3. oh my you take amazing food pics! how!

  4. Soy is Heathy only if it is properly prepared but unfortunately many shops or store even the famous one in Singapore dont prepare soy milk well. Do try their unsweeten soy milk. Smell first then taste it and you may find it hard to swallow. In the Compendium of Materia Medica of China has clear describe Soy milk as flat but sweetish taste. If you dont get these type of taste, it means the soy milk is not right.
    I believe more than 70% of the freshly the made soy milk in Singapore dont cook well. Don’t be surprised if you get some kidney sickness after years of drinking soy milk.This is due to poorly prepared soy milk.

    • I see… thanks for informing…
