Soybeans contain all three of the macro-nutrients required for good nutrition: complete protein, carbohydrate and fat, as well as vitamins and minerals, including calcium, folic acid and iron.

On average, whole soymilk contains about 100 calories and 4 gr.of fat per 8 oz. That would translate to: 38% fat (1% saturated fat).

While that may seem high, the percentage of calories from fat is directly related to the number of calories. Therefore, if the calories are very low (100) although the fat content is also low (4 gr)

For instance: 8 oz. (3%) cow's milk contains 145 calories, more than 8 grams of fat, 33 mg and cholesterol. translating to: 49 % fat, and a whopping 30% saturated fat.

It's all relative!
