Is coffee high in uric acid?

No food/drink contains uric acid. It's produced from the metabolism of purines taken through diet in the body, purines coming from animal food products for example.

Because coffee is made from living cells it has purines which are responsible for the production of uric acid. However drinking coffee is not a serious uric acid producer.

Can you take antibiotics with soy milk?

No, you cannot take any antibiotics with soy milk. Calcium has been shown to block/interfere with the absorption of antibiotics. Do not ingest any food products containing calcium unless it is 4-6 hours before taking your antibiotic. But, if you can take your antibiotics with milk (e.g. penicillin, bactrim, etc..) you can take it with soy milk. Some antibiotics couldn't be taken with calcium, like quinolones (cipro, levaquin, avelox, ..) and you should avoid soy milk 2-3 hours apart in this situation.

What are the benefits of drinking soy milk?

1. Making soy milk does less damage to the environment than raising cows to produce cows milk. It produces less greenhouse gasses, wastes less water, causes less water pollution and less land pollution. It also uses less land.

2. Producing cows milk on factory farms is very cruel to the cows. They are kept indoors in tiny enclosures, and hooked up to milking machines that cause them to have inflamed and infected udders. The cows are made pregnant frequently and then their calves are taken away from them after they give birth. They are given hormones and antibiotics to make them produce as much as 10 times the milk that they would produce naturally. Soy milk is cruelty free.

3. Cows milk contains hormones and antibiotics that may have negative health effects on humans.

4. Soy milk doesn't contain any cholesterol. This may be better for you if you have high cholesterol or other risk factors for heart disease.

5. Soy milk contains natural hormones that mimic the effects of Estrogen. This can be helpful if you are having menopause symptoms, such as hot flashes.

6. Soy milk doesn't contain lactose. It can be easier to digest if you have lactose intolerance.

7. On the other hand, most soy milk has added sugar. Get the unsweetened kind. Stir or shake it before you pour it in your glass, because the soy settles to the bottom of the container.

8. It's cheaper than cow's milk.

9. It stays fresh longer in the refrigerator.

(That's all I can think of, but it's quite a lot.)

Is soy milk not as filling as regular formula for my 6 week old?

You should never feed your baby soy milk. It is not the same as infant formula or breastmilk. It will not supply the same nutrients and calories to your baby, and your baby could become severely malnourished if fed soy milk.

However, infant formula made from soy is perfectly acceptable as long as your baby is not allergic or sensitive to soy. It is not as healthful as breastmilk, but it will suffice.

Is guar gum formed by soy bean seeds?

Guar gum is extracted from the bean of the Indian guar plant, a different plant.

While it is true that guar gum is not derived from the seeds or any part of the soybean or soy plant, it should be noted that they are both members of the same plant family: legumes. As legumes, they can in fact cause an allergic reaction in anyone already allergic to another legume. This includes soy and peanuts, as well as beans and peas. Search for <Leguminous Plants> to find a full list of these soy "cousins".
