Does soy milk have sugar? Detail: Aardvark hates short questions so I have to add some random junk here.

(You): Does soy milk have sugar? Detail: Aardvark hates short questions so I have to add some random junk here.

(Alan): Usually it does. Check the labelf for the individual brand.

(You): I meant the one Starbucks uses… I didn’t realize different brands had different amounts

(Alan): I know they changed their soy milk in 2009 and I also know that the silk they used before has sugar. I believe (but am not certain) that the new formulation also has sugar.

(You): black coffee is a bit too strong for me :)

(Maureen): yes, there’s a small amount of naturally occurring carbohydrates in soy milk, just like regular milk

(Rookie): 7 words/ 30 characters. :) Depends on what brand of soy milk you get. The ones that specify “unsweetened” do not. But, if you get generic “soy milk”, it does have sugar and salt.

(You): Thanks. I was thinking of Starbucks “sugarfree hazelnut lattes”, which do have sugar, even if you use soy milk :(

(Rookie): Wait, you may want to find out where they source their soy milk from. It could be different if they were a franchise vs. company owned. If they do use unsweetened, all’s good.

(You): Thanks, but it turns out they don’t… just check the sugar on one of their “sugar-free” lattes.
