It contains omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids -- which are essential fats that help keep your blood pressure and cholesterol in check. It has no saturated fat or trans fat -- which are the unhealthy fats. Soy milk contains soy protein, which is good for your heart, and it is cholesterol free. I am a soy milk nut -- I drink the chocolate stuff a lot. I put the vanilla soy milk in my cereal -- it tastes great with vanilla frosted mini wheats. I also love the soy chai. Yum!
