Busted: Soy beverages contain a different set of nutrients than cow’s milk. Although the protein and fat content are similar, soy beverages are naturally low in calcium, containing only about 10 mg per serving. Manufacturers often fortify with calcium, but the amount added is not regulated and can vary from 80 to 500 mg per serving. The other nutrients in milk important for bone health—including vitamin D, phosphorus, potassium and magnesium—are also not present at the same levels in soy beverages. Therefore, soy beverages should not be considered a substitute for the nutrients obtained from milk.
