What do you mean is it legal?

Funny, I just bought some Splenda sweetened soy by mistake this week - the Cappucino flavor. My gosh, it is SO GOOD! But, I was irritated when I saw that it had Splenda! I've taken the organic route and have sworn off additives such as this, and was wondering what the heck Splenda was doing mixed with organic food??? I'll finish it, but won't buy it again.

CSM, KO means "legal" for South Beach. Looks OK to me although I'm not into soy milk.

KO, the only thing I'm not sure of is the tapioca starch in the almond milk.

KO, the soy milk looks fine and it sounds like the almond milk isn't an issue. ;)

CSM, as far as I know, it's pretty hard to find unsweetened soy milk...although maybe that's changed? Anyways, my understanding is that unsweetened soy milk can be really unpalatable. I've found it hard to find totally organic/natural foods that fit with SBD unless they're totally unsweetened. The only thing I've seen that might work is erithrytol. It's a sugar substitute but is completely natural. Stonyfield Farms, I believe, is using it in some of their flavored organic yogurts. If it's not them, there's another big organic company that is. Might be an option--to look for erithrytol-sweetened soy milk? :shrug: I applaud your sticking to natural and organic foods! :D
