comment What is 100% juice?
@Thecrocodilehunter, if you look closely at Florida's Natural OJ (even in that picture you linked), it says 100% pure Florida orange juice. You can check the ingredients if you're not sure and the only ingredient should be "orange juice". Be careful with some OJs these days though, I accidentally bought one that was 50/50 OJ/water with stevia mixed in. Read labels if you're not sure what's inside.

comment Is it possible to make soymilk without a “beany” taste?
I have used pretty much that exact method and could absolutely taste a beany taste not present in store bought soymilk. It didn't even taste remotely close.
