Soyummi – Daring to be different!

I can go on and on about these puddings named Soyummi. I’ve been a fan for quite awhile so it was an absolute pleasure to meet Joanne Hollander (founder), and her staff at the July 2012 food expo. In 2009, Joanne developed the first non-dairy, vegan rice and tapioca puddings on the market – OMG, they’re marvelously delicious and healthy. Joanne’s products are freshly produced with care as if made in your own kitchen. Only whole, minimally processed ingredients are used. Instead of refined sugar, they sweeten with non-GMO beet syrup. Look, North America has an obesity problem. We all know that – And with this awareness, Soyummi is doing its part in creating alternatives that are even better than the “not-exactly-healthy classics”. For example, if you like traditional rice pudding and you gave Soyummi’s rice pudding a try, you’d be shocked to learn it’s dairy-free. Most folks wouldn’t guess by taste alone and that says alot about the great flavors Soyummi has carefully chosen. The original Soyummi pudding recipe won the first prize in Canada in the 2003 Grand Prix (dessert/snack category). Soyummi puddings are safe for people struggling with celiac-related issues. Soyummi, for good reasons, does not use UHT sterilization (ultra high temperature sterilization) simply to extend shelf life, as so many other companies do.

The dark chocolate pudding is a must-try for any chocolate aficionado. It has a Heavenly whipped texture and in my opinion, a sophisticated taste. I once ate all four cups in one sitting – and yes, I loved every minute of it. Oh, and cocoa is healthy, as we’ve learned. What I love best is the use of non-GMO beet syrup instead of refined sugars. Beets are a low-glycemic sweetener and good for us. Soyummi is a superb food company! I wish them all the best in the world. Reach them on Facebook, Twitter or at The reason why Soyummi was created explains much of the philosophy behind this company: Joanne learned that her son was lactose-intolerant and decided to make great-tasting dairy-free foods he could eat safely.
