 01 Dec 2010 08:52 PM If it helps, the soy milk machine I want shows the strength of the soy milk is 4.6% dissolved solids and total quantity is 783 ml. The soy milk contains about 7% suspended matter, mainly fine okara. Total yield calculated from these figures is 53%. Oh and it uses 75 g dry soybeans and 1000 ml cold water to make.

 09 Dec 2010 02:08 AM I did a search and came up with this from: bryannaclarkgrogan.comShe figured the nutrient in her recipe for homemade soymilk. I have no idea how accurate it is, but it gives me something to go on. This is what she says.What is the nutritional information for homemade soymilk?I came to these numbers by subtracting the nutrients from 3/4 cup of okara (the amount of okara or soy pulp left after making 1 batch-- 6 cups-- of homemade soymilk) from the nutrients in 100 g of raw soybeans, which is how much you use in a batch. I added calories for 1 and 1/2 Tbs. of sugar and sodium for 3/8 tsp. of salt (raw soybeans contain virtually no sodium) for the whole batch. I used nutrient info from the USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference.1 cup of all-soy homemade soymilk made from my recipe 71 calories; 5.6 g protein; 3.05 g total fat; 3.11 g total carbohydrate; 34 mg calcium; 2.41 mg iron; 42.6 mg magnesium; 130 mg sodium; .71 mg zinc; 1.36 mcg selenium; .143 mg thiamin; .142 mg riboflavin; .25 mg niacin; .045 mg vitamin B6; 62.45 mcg folateNOTE: If you add 3/4 Tbs. calcium carbonate powder to each batch of 6 cups, add 300 g of calcium per cup of soymilk to the nutrient count.

 09 Dec 2010 07:29 AM I don't recall exactly how to do it, but I recall seeing a recipe for making soymilk from soy flour. It was a recipe that I saw on the package, maybe BOBS RED MILL? You could check there for the recipe, they sometimes have recipes online. CranberrycatWe don't own the earth; we borrow it from our children.

 09 Dec 2010 10:05 PM Thanks Cranberrycat. I can make soymilk without a soymilk maker. I would just like the convenience of using one. In The cookbook 'Laurel's Kitchen" They give a breakdown of their recipe for homemade soymilk. The thing with that though, I know they didn't understand fiber like we do today. So it shows very little fiber. But that too would be good to use as a beginning. I'll look it up again and post it.

 09 Dec 2010 10:36 PM Ok, here it is. If you would like the full recipe let me know and I will post it.1 cup dry soybeans makes 6 to 7 cups soymilk. I'm going to say 6 for figuring. I suppose if you got 7, you could boil it down to 6.Per cupCalories: 155Fat: 8.3Protein: 7.6Carbs: 17Fiber: 0The macronutrients were figured in the book by adding 2 tbsp oil and 4 tbsp honey to 6 to 7 cups of liquid. So removing the honey and oil would make it (based on 6 cups and the book):Oil calories: 119 x2 = 238 fat: 14 x 2 = 28 Honey calories: 64 x4 =256 Carbs: 17 x 4 = 68Total per cup would then be: Calories: 82.3 Fat: 4.6 Protein: 7.6 Carbs: 11.3 Fiber: 0And even though I know that is helpful, at least to me, I wish I knew for sure...

 09 Dec 2010 10:42 PM Oh and I forgot to add that the book says the milk contains 65% of the total solids of the beans, more than 80% of it's protein, and most of it's oil. So that too might be a way to figure the macronutrients...

 12 Dec 2010 06:09 PM I looked on Westsoy Organic Plain Soymilk. It is made with whole soybeans and water... I think that is close as I am going to come to the actual nutrients and it is close enough!
