soy ice cream


A nondairy frozen dessert based on soy milk. This "ice cream" comes in a variety of styles (including high-fat premium, low-fat and sugar-free) and flavors ranging from various fruits to chocolate. The fat in soy ice cream is typically partially hydrogenated (see fats and oils) soybean oil, although other oils such as palm-kernel oil are also used. Soy ice cream can be found in supermarkets as well as in natural food stores.
