How do you drink coffee – black, or do you like cappuccino and lattes? In the wake of the massive rejection of cow’s milk, the question becomes more relevant than ever; what to do with one of the most popular drinks in the world if you are used to drinking it with milk?
The most obvious option is to replace cow’s milk with vegetable milk; soy, rice, nut milk. Which one to pick is only a matter of taste. We’ll outline the most popular types of plant milk and their effects on the human body.
Like cow’s milk, it contains vitamins E and A, but it has a low fat and calorie content.
Almond milk contains very little protein. And its sweetened varieties overload the body with excess sugar.
Like almond milk, cashew milk is low in calories and fat. Some manufacturers additionally fortify it with calcium and vitamins D and B12.
This kind of milk is quite expensive.
B vitamins and magnesium are both abundant in rice milk. Due to its high carbohydrate content, it helps to energize.
Rice contains a lot of starch, so it can cause a spike in blood sugar, making rice milk unsuitable for people with diabetes. If you have diabetes, drink cow milk, soy milk, or almond milk.
Coconut milk is rich in vitamins, iron, and fiber. Despite its high-calorie content, experts say it helps speed up your metabolism.
The thick consistency of coconut milk is more suitable for cooking than drinking.
Soy milk contains almost as much protein as cow’s milk, but it has less sugar. It contains phytoestrogens, which help with better absorption of calcium.
Scientists believe that such milk leads to an imbalance in sex hormones and negatively affects fertility and the menstrual cycle. Therefore, it is worth limiting its use.
