DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE FEATURES)–March 14, 2001–By now, almost
everyone has heard of the positive benefits gained when soy is added
to an everyday diet. Sun Soy(TM) soymilk combines popular and
great-tasting flavors with healthy rewards, creating a win-win

Sun Soy recently launched Coffee Latte, which joins a line up of
flavors including Creamy Original, Vanilla, and Chocolate. These
low-fat and cholesterol free drinks made with organic ingredients are
great for tackling thirst, tempting taste buds and promoting good
health. April is National Soy Month and is the perfect time to add soy
to an everyday diet.

“As part of the nation’s largest dairy processor and distributor,
we have a strong obligation to our customers to stay current with
developments in diet and nutrition, so that we can continue to provide
the finest, healthiest products available,” said Bing Graffunder,
president and chief operating officer of Morningstar Foods Inc.

Sun Soy is made from organic ingredients and carries the American
Heart Association certification seal. The product was launched last
year, just a few months after the FDA’s statement about the benefits
of soy protein as part of a healthy diet. The FDA stated that
consuming 25 grams of soy protein daily, as part of a diet that is low
in saturated fat and cholesterol, can help reduce the risk of heart

Sun Soy is refrigerated and comes in 32- and 64-ounce cartons,
each with a resealable Flavor Fresh Pour Spout(R). Consumers will find
Sun Soy during their regular trips to national grocery chains.

Morningstar Foods Inc. is a subsidiary of Suiza Foods Corporation,
the nation’s leading dairy processor and distributor, producing a full
line of company-branded and customer-branded products. Its principal
holdings are in fluid dairy processing and refrigerated, shelf-stable
and frozen dairy products.
