For starters the 3 great things about Soy Milk is that its a good source of protein, vitamin A, B12, vitamin D, and potassium. Hi contains nearly as much protein as Cows’s Milk, BUT it is lower in calories than whole milk and on par to skimmed milk. Soy Milk has NO no cholesterol, which is important for those with heart conditions or anyone wanting to prevent one!

They both have similar nutrients. Each type of milk gives 8 grams protein per glass and has the benefit of calcium, vitamin A, vitamin D and vitamin B-12 and phosphorous – All except skimmed milk. Cows milk contains cholesterol and saturated fat which Soy Milk does not.
Cows milk contains more calories than soy milk – BUT if you are trying to loose weight a study in 2011 shows cows milk to be more beneficial BUT another study shows that soy milk helps reduce your waist line
