Why is Soy Latte the Miracle Coffee Drink?

Updated on December 2, 2011

Coffee Beans


The Soy Latte

Recent research indicates that using soy milk in your latte beverage will supercharge your metabolism.

The Research:

A study conducted by the University of Illinois found that soy has a special protein; it is this protein that works with caffeine to increase the rate in which your body burns fat. It also boosts muscle mass and helps reduce overall fat storage.

How it Works:

The amino acid in soy increases the level of the hormone known as leptin. Leptin tells your brain when you feel satisfied.

Other Benefits From the Study:

The same research study found that soy also stops hunger by making the brain receptors think you are full.

Coffee is Coffee is Coffee...

Unfortunately, the supermarket brand of packaged ground coffee can be described, at best, as 'inferior' robusta. The only benefit may be a jolt of caffeine. To enjoy the known benefits of coffee it is important to have a freshly ground cup of coffee.

The beans should be arabica, the roast should be your choice depending on how much caffeine you like - and other personal preferences. If you stop at a coffee house where they grind the beans, most likely the beans will be arabica. (See links below about types of coffee beans and different roasts).

If purchasing your own coffee beans, it is best to go with organic beans which should be shade grown - this has always been the natural way to grow coffee. For mass produced commercial grade coffee - it is grown in the sun, and with the use of pesticides.

The French Press/Coffee Grinder:

I like the French press for making a cup of coffee as it cuts out using those coffee filters that are bleached. I always grind my own beans as well. This is pretty close to a really great cup of coffee - minus me growing and roasting the beans myself. Then a splash of soy milk. I also find doing coffee like this avoids the caffeine jitters and I feel no addiction.

For Boosting Metabolism:

The research study found results to occur with three soy lattes per week.
