As part of Silk’s ongoing commitment to educate consumers about what’s in their food, the entire plant-based beverage portfolio is enrolled in or verified by the Non-GMO Project. The Non-GMO Project provides independent verification that Silk’s products are made without GMOs, earning The Non-GMO Project Verified seal.
We recently launched a new, exciting product – Silk Iced Latte. At the time of launch, this product was enrolled in the Non-GMO Project program, and we are happy to report that it’s now officially verified. The Iced Latte packaging will be updated in June with the Non-GMO Project Verified logo, giving our consumers the opportunity to make informed choices about the foods and beverages they eat and drink.
In recent years, there has been some confusion about whether or not soy is safe for breast cancer survivors. It’s to that end, that we’re happy to share a new report from the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) which found that, upon review of existing research, moderate consumption of soy is safe for breast cancer patients and survivors, and in fact is now listed in the AICR’s Food That Fight Cancer list.
Soy consumption does not lead to increased estrogen levels in humans and may even have potential benefits among women receiving certain breast cancer treatments or with certain tumor characteristics.
As many families shift toward plant-based diets to improve health and reduce costs, soy is often the protein of choice. The reasons are clear – soy is one of the top food sources of high-quality, complete protein that may help lower cholesterol, reduce the risk of heart disease and provide other important health benefits. One serving of soy is equal to 1 cup of soy milk, ½ cup tofu or tempeh, ½ cup cooked edamame, or 1 ounce of soy nuts. Such soy foods provide fiber, iron, and omega-3 fatty acids, and are low in saturated fat and cholesterol-free.
To your health. Bottoms up, Silk fans!

What’s the most challenging thing you’ve ever done? Think about it… the absolute hardest thing you’ve ever done? While rewarding and gratifying in the end, it probably wasn’t much “fun” during that actual process, right?
Well here’s a challenge that’ll bring those same feelings of reward and gratification, only without all that miserable work. Introducing our Silk brand’s newest campaign – The Least Challenging Challenge.
It’s simple. All you have to do is replace your regular milk, with Silk, whenever you eat a bowl of cereal. That’s it. Potential benefits include fewer calories, higher calcium intake and a great taste that results in a challenge that is not even remotely challenging.
And accepting the challenge doesn’t mean you have to give up milk. All you have to do is use Silk instead of milk when you eat cereal. It’s the best of both worlds, it’s easy and it’s delicious.
So if you’re up for the “challenge”, (again, it’s not going to be much of a challenge) head on over to our Facebook page for more details, and a coupon to help get you started.
