Many dieters say soy milk is perfect, but nevertheless there are many others who say that almond milk is the best. My intention is to compare soy milk (vanilla) versus almond milk (vanilla) and expose the strengths and weaknesses of both in order to have a better understanding at the time of purchase. All the nutritional data I’m going to use for this comparison has been obtained through ESHA, with a control of 8oz of each product. Calorically speaking, vanilla soy milk has about 150 calories versus 90 in the vanilla almond milk. For those people that count calories, almond milk has the advantage.

In the sugar and fat, both of them are around the same, but because the vanilla flavoring, sugar can be high in both. Usually is lower in almond milk. In carbohydrates is a big difference, Soy milk has about 24g and almond milk only 16g. At this point almond milk has the advantage. Now for vitamins is another story. Soy milk is richer in female friendly B vitamins, and has 10% of your folate RDA. Almond milk has 0. Soy milk has 9%of your daily potassium which is about 320mg, almond milk only has 180mg.
