Milk Options

Posted Feb 15th, 2017

When it comes to milk we don’t just have to choose between 2%, skim or whole milk anymore. Options abound we can go with soy, coconut, cashew, rice, almond or traditional cows milk. This might leave you wondering what kind of milk is best for you and your family? The answer will likely be different for everyone based on your taste preferences, allergies and food sensitivities.

¬†Cows milk alternatives became popular due to the growing number of people desiring a diary free milk choice. Almond milk, soy, coconut and rice milk (plus several others) are dairy free. They are also great if you’re vegetarian, vegan or lactose intolerant. However, some cows milk alternatives are lower in protein and higher in sugar, so like any food you purchase that has a label take a look and see what the product is offering. Some of the main things to consider when looking at a milk label are calories, protein and sugar content. Weigh your options and find what works best for you.

    WOULD like to know if the Best Choice Almond Milk is gluten free? Use it daily and have had a rash we are trying to figure out what causes it? Thanks for your reply.

    I’m wondering if the Best Choice Ranch dip mix is a vegan friendly option (the product alone, before being mixed).

    The milk product is okay but the container it came in is horrible it is poorly made and punctures very easily causing Mayhem in the refrigerator. I came home to a mess inside the refrigerator and on the kitchen floor because of a puncture in the container. And I can assure you that I did not miss handle that jug of milk.

    Are your dairy products treated with hormones and steroids? And are you making sure your company is practicing sustainable, cruelty-free farming?
