Malnutrition rates in the Philippines remain on the rise through the years. In a report last year, UNICEF presented that 14 indicators show over 28 million cases among Filipino kids with undernutrition, showing signs of stunting and wasting.
Since then, strategies and projects have been taken and set in motion to counteract this alarming predicament. Among these is the recommended consumption of milk. One type of which, is soymilk.
Soymilk, made from soybeans and filtered water, is naturally free in cholesterol and low in saturated fat. It is an excellent source of protein and calcium.
Essentially, growing kids must have these components primarily because protein builds strong immunity, boosts growth, and maintenance of skin, tendons, membranes, muscles, and organs. It also helps in blood clotting and wound healing.
Furthermore, soy-protein contains all essential amino acids necessary for human nutrition, and has a high protein digestibility of more than 90% comparable to meats at 90-99%.
On the other hand, calcium is responsible for developing the rigid bone structure that holds the body upright and serves as attachment points for muscles, making motion possible. It regulates muscle contraction, protects against bone loss in the later years of life, prevents fractures from easily occurring, and participates in nerve impulse transmission (nerve signals).
All in all, soymilk balances and further supplements the lack of nutrients in a human body. However, this plant-based milk has mostly been marketed to adolescent and adult women, which is why there are limited options in the market suitable for a growing kid's taste. for soy milk that is appetizing or suitable for growing kids' taste.
