A product made by treating soy milk with live (friendly) bacteria, just as yogurt is produced. Soy yogurt has a flavor and consistency that simulates that of dairy yogurt. It's available plain or fruit flavored and can be found in natural food stores. It must be refrigerated and should be used within a week of purchase. Use it in any way suitable for regular yogurt.
