To table of contents


around Sojamilch manufacturing, must the dried yellow soy beans first about 8-10 hours be eingeweicht. The beans are finished for subsequent treatment, if they are about twice as large as in the dried condition and can easily in the center be divided. The beans are now sieved, rinsed off and püriert as finely as possible then. In order to remove the still existing digest-restraining poison materials from the milk, the Pürree is given to cooking water and cooked for approximately 20 minutes. The cooked mixture is filtered and cooled down afterwards as fast as possible. The ballast-material-rich Sojakuchen stays in the filter.

Sojamilch, in addition, grain milk such as rice or oats milk as well as nut milk, can be manufactured with so-called Sojamilchbereitern (also Sojamilchmaschine or Sojamilchautomat) comfortably. A Sojamilchbereiter provided from eingeweichten or uneingeweichten soy beans and water in approx. 15-20 minutes a Sojamilch. The soy beans are cut up several times during the procedure, and the milk is boiled up. So the Sojamilch even manufactured can be processed then still depending upon taste, approximately to Tofu or Sojajoghurt, or the Sojamilch is converted simply with fruits (banana, strawberry etc.) to a mixing beverage.

The prices of the Sojamilchbereiter for the Heimgebrauch lie between 100 € and 250 € (depending upon program selection, amount of filling, heating type).

Industrielle production
