There are a variety of reasons to go with goat milk even if you don’t suffer from cow-derived allergic reactions as well as lactose intolerance. One reason is that Goat milk soap has a higher quantity of vitamins and minerals which makes it a healthier option.

What happens if you suffer from lactose intolerance, and require a substitute for milk?

On an earlier post at the blog, we reviewed various dairy products from animals to determine if goat’s milk can be considered the most suitable alternative for those suffering from difficulty digesting lactose. (Important note: always consult your doctor prior to exploring other milk options – goat milk and other options aren’t appropriate for all people who suffers from lactose intolerance.)

Real milk product particularly if they’re not fortified separately.

Incredibly, there are a variety of alternatives to lactose-friendly beverages that are available, and call their products “milk,” but they are not derived from animals. They are made with various nuts and plants like rice, soy and almonds. That means that their nutritional profiles could differ significantly from that of a real milk product particularly if they’re not fortified separately.

Today, we’re delving into how other top-rated and readily available lactose-friendly and lactose-free drinks compare against goat milk, and why you should look at using any of these products as a complete substitute for cow’s milk in order to ensure that you’re getting the nutritional benefits you’re expecting.

Goat milk is an energy source for nutrition

The primary reason for choosing dairy products made from goats over lactose-free alternatives is related to nutrition. There is no product of plant “milk” product can match Goat milk Lotion nutritional value all over the board. Actually, even cow’s dairy can’t be compared to goat milk! With less calories per cup as well as less cholesterol and sodium and higher levels of specific B vitamins, copper, vitamin C, manganese and more, goat milk is an energy source for nutrition. (We believe that goat milk tastes better as well, but that’s the personal taste of each individual.)

Take a look at this chart of comparison of cow’s and goat’s milk, as well as a few of the most well-known dairy-free, plant-based beverages.

How Goat Milk Compares to Plant-Based Milks

We looked over the nutritional content of some of the most popular names (Silk, Blue Diamond, Rice Dream, etc.) made from plants-based “milk” beverages in comparison to our New Zealand Natural Full Cream Powdered Goat milk products. We found that there were different nutrition information for certain brands in comparison to other brands. It is important to keep in mind that supplementing with vitamins and minerals can boost a particular product’s nutritional quality, so examining labels when you shop for alternatives to milk is vital.

These comparisons are generalizations, and your preferred product may be different.

Almond Milk

With a calcium content at 45% of the recommended. Daily requirement (based on a 2,000 calories food plan in the USA) approximately 444 mg per serving if properly supplemented. Almond milk looks great when compared with both goat and cow milk. However, this isn’t the only way to look at it. A cup of plain almond milk contains just one grams of protein. It is also devoid of vitamin C (putting it in the same category. As cow milk but far in comparison to goat milk). It does have the higher sodium content when as compared to goat and cow milk, 178 mg and. 120 mg or 115 mg per serving in both cases. Remember, if are allergic to nuts the almond milk may not be suitable for you.

Cashew Milk Like you’d think, cashew milk as well as almond milk are nutritionally alike. If you’re deciding between one or one, it’s generally the flavor. Cashews have a more earthy flavor as compared to almonds. And it is evident in the final drink, particularly when it’s not sweetened. Cashew milk is a smaller in calories as well as fats than almond milk. However, it’s also lower in protein similar to almond milk. It’s just one gram, unless it the milk has been specifically enhanced, which but not any brands have. Also, if you have an allergy to nuts then you’ll likely have to stay clear of cashew milk.
