Whereas soy cream is used to give soups and entrées a creamy flavor, whipped soy cream is the perfect way to top off sweet dishes and desserts. The type of oil used will alter both versions so that they have a slightly different taste as well as a different nutritional profile. For example, when canola oil is used in place of olive oil the soy cream and soy whipped cream contain higher amounts of alpha-linolenic acid and vitamin E.
Since the soy whipped cream doesn’t contain any animal products, it is an ideal cream substitute for vegans. And since it is also lactose-free, it is a good substitute for people who are lactose intolerant — even though it doesn’t whip up quite as well. In addition, it can be used in sweet dishes and baked goods or to make soups creamier.
