Non-Dairy Milk Alternatives

Many people associate milk with Calcium (Ca). Strong bones and just a healthier body overall. Most people would say milk is the best drink a child should have during their development. And its true, I have been educated that milk can prevent osteoporosis even in my nutrition classes back in undergrad. The idea of drinking two glasses of milk each day sank in even more. However, just last year I came across to a post on Facebook noting the ingredients that are in milk. Pus, blood, antibiotics, hormones, and many growth hormones all found in MILK. I was pretty horrified to know that I was not aware of these containments. And of course, I did a research on this before switching to other alternatives in the market. Soy is definitely a popular source, however almond, rice, hemp, flax are also on the rise.

I highly suggest drinking the above non-dairy alternatives. They contain as much calcium and they have even fortified some vitamins (including vitamin B12…) just so consumers could get all the nutritional benefits! How awesome!  Most non-dairy alternatives nowadays contain higher amounts of calcium, vitamin D than milk, so you don’t have to worry about not obtaining enough. For those who are lactose intolerant go give these a try! These alternatives would treat you much better!

The Hidden Truth

Pus yellowish-greenish thick fluid found in infected tissues
Blood YES, certain amounts of pus & blood are allowed in milk
recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH) injected into dairy cows to increase levels of milk production
Antibiotics are used to treat sick cows. This is very commonly used when rBGH is injected into dairy cows, this elevates the stress levels of cows which causes mastitis leading to infections.

Stay Hearty.
