Unrefrigerated soy milk--still healthy?

We bought a case of organic soy milk at Costco--is super convenient just grabbing a box from our pantry ea. time we run out. It only has to be refrigerated once opened. This has me thinking that maybe it's been pasturized so much that there's not a whole lot of vits/minerals/healthy stuff left in it.
Anyone know?
DD's lactose intolerant, but doesn't use milk much at all so we end up tossing the refrigerated goat/soy milk and throwing money down the drain. This saves a lot of money, but if it's not benefitting her at all...

What does the label say? I have a thing of the refrigerated kind - the off-brand but organic. I can tell you what my label says.

Re: Unrefrigerated soy milk--still healthy?

There are just a couple of important things, and you covered one of them: It's organic. Is it fortified with calcium? Almost all non-dairy milks are nowadays. Be sure to shake it *really* well every time you use it b/c the calcium will settle on the bottom.
