Soya Milk Pudding with Silver Ear Sweet Soup
Kathleen YAU, Executive Committee of Hong Kong Nutrition Association, said "Ready-to-eat pudding is often high in sugar, resulting in excessive calorie intake. Replacing sugar by fruits can not only reduce simple sugar consumption but also increases the intake of different vitamins and minerals. The pudding is made with soya milk, which contains protein and isoflavone for preventing cardiovascular diseases."
