This is the same soybean as the free sample soybean shipped with the SoyaJoy and SoyaPower soy milk makers. The Laura soy bean is specifically selected for making fresh soy milk. The Non-GMO soybean is Vegan-endorsed, new crop directly from Iowa family farm. The #1 secret for making great tasting soy milk at your own kitchen is to use new crop soybean. Imported organic soybeans or beans through long distribution channels can be years old and lost significant nutrition and taste. Soybeans can store for up to 10 years, which are still OK for use as feed or making oil, but not good for soy milk! You will find that new crop soybean makes a huge difference in taste and nutrition for homemade soy milk.

My main complaint is that I ordered and paid for 5 lbs and received 3 lbs in a bag marked 5 lbs. I contacted Amazon customer service and was promptly refunded the difference. I hope that no one else had this problem without noticing it.
I was making blender versions before, and using local soybeans. Which I had no idea what I was getting and having to be paranoid about cleaning. Much milder flavor and blend up well. These are worth the money. IF you did buy a soymilk maker, this particular item is Prime so you can get more quickly. They aren't very dirty or dusty, fairly clear of foreign material, and not many bad beans, period. (still rinse them and pick them over) Quality crop material.
Edit: bought another bag because I'm using 8-10# a month. 24 hour soak, gives a smoother milk. I use 2/3 cup dry, then presoak in covered bowl in fridge. When I make a pot I put the next batch on (2/3 c soybeans in a 1 quart glass bowl, fill about 1/2 full of filtered water). If you need a thicker milk with more body and can do so, add 1/4 cup rinsed rice (do not soak) in with the batch. Do not do this to make tofu or yogurt.
I discussed brown (darker) beans and some purplish marked ones with the farm/company. They said that is a natural variation, and normal. They harvest through October and sometime during that month they switch over to shipping the fresh crop. Their product keeps well over a year so don't worry during that month. They also check their bean size at a per-pound-average and said 2015 were very uniform but are running about 2080/lb for 2015. They also sell to Japan where the beans are used to make soymilk and tofu.
I have figured out how to make tofu and this is a good mild flavored version. These beans are excellent for producing tofu. My efforts at yogurt are still ongoing, the results are of a good consistency at least, the issues are mine.
The 5# bags I have been getting are a dark green sort of shiny outside and white inside plastic with a seal tab like oreo cookies and a built in twistie to fold over to hold the top shut as well. I did go to buying 50# lots, which Amazon doesn't carry (that box is HEAVY and not many are going to be using that much). Those come in bigger versions of a clear bag like the picture shows, double bagged, twistie sealed. A 5# bag easily fits into a gallon jar. The attached pictures are the front and back labels on the green bags I've been getting.
A little more research needs to be done on my part in order to see if this price is actually worth it for me. I enjoyed the beans greatly, they made great milk and great tofu, but the price didn't make it that much easier for me to purchase. Organic Tofu can be purchased locally here in Houston for less than $2 a box, so it might just be a location issue too.
I'll shop around, but I might be back!
