Is Almond Milk A Staple In Your Household?

Dairy milk sales have been going down for years now, as more and more people are opting for plant-based milk and other alternatives for health or dietary reasons. Among the most popular is almond milk.

This kind of milk is made by blending some almonds with water and filtering the mixt to eliminate any solids. Another way is to produce almond milk by combining almond butter and water. It has a creamy texture like milk and a lovely nutty aroma.

As a result, its common among vegans, vegetarians, and lactose-intolerant people. You can find almond milk in many supermarkets. But for health and well-being reasons, we recommend you get the unsweetened kind.

The good thing is that most brands are even reinforced with protein, minerals, and vitamins. Side Note: if you don’t consume any dairy, you should choose products that are fortified with calcium.

Almond milk manufacturers usually draw the milk from skinned almonds, and they strain the mix, eliminating most of the antioxidants and fiber. Also, almond milk gets diluted, making them a less concentrated nutrient source than whole almonds.

As long as you go for the fortified options, the nutritional value should be okay. Still not sure if almond milk is a healthy option for YOU? We’ll look at some of its side effects and benefits. Keep reading to get the details!

  1. I like almond milk in my coffee, but I cannot do unsweetened. I switched from coffee, mate to silk, almond milk, crème brûlée or vanilla. This is great and much better and lower in calories than what I was previously using. But unsweetened I tried, and cannot do in my coffee.

  2. My son was put on a Low Carb diet to help with seizure control by his neurologist he recommended Unsweetened almond milk because it was low in carbs. Just so happened that I had been having digestion problems, my gastroenterologist told me that as we age we loose the ability to breakdown milk proteins so he suggested that I try Soy milk. I tried for a year but the matter only got worse! So I switched to Almond milk along with my son, and have had no problems.
