Animal Milk Vs Plant Milk, Which Is A Healthier Choice?

Written by GeePee

Plants milk

Some people avoid cow’s milk because of expected lactose intolerance or protein allergies or just dislike of the taste.
we have various type of plant milk
Almond Milk
rice milk

Almond Milk
is obtained from almond nuts. This plant-based milk has a creamy texture and nutty flavor. It also has zero lactose and cholesterol present in it.

Rice milk
is a dairy-free type of milk that is prepared with boiled rice, and brown rice starch and syrup. This popular milk alternative has a wide range of impressive nutrients, including roughly 140 calories per cup, and only about 3 grams of fat which is much less than 10 grams of fat in a cup of whole cow’s milk.

is a fat-free milk substitute extracted from the soybean, which is a legume (also known as a member of the pea family). Soymilk can help improve cardiovascular health and reduce the risk of many postmenopausal problems

Coconut milk
this comes from the fruit’s white flesh. You may hear mixed messages about coconut milk because of its high saturated fat content. However, the type of saturated fat in coconut milk is probably more neutral than harmful.

Animal milk 
People sometimes argue about which is the best milk choice. Some say animal’s milk is not good because too much animal protein is not healthy.

The legacy of the traditional dairy industry however, still lives on – with many believing that calcium, protein and vitamin D are only available in animal milk and its products. Let’s see how much of that is true.
There are two main types of protein found in milk — casein and whey protein. These both are considered high-quality proteins.

Cow’s milk contains 8 g of protein— more than a hard-boiled egg. It also has 300 mg of bone-building calcium and 400 mg of potassium.
Cow’s milk is rich in certain nutrients such as calcium, phosphorus, riboflavin and vitamin B12. (Plant-based alternatives are often fortified with nutrients they do not naturally contain.)
Cow’s milk is a source of potassium, which can enhance vasodilation and reduce blood pressure.
Grass-fed cows tend to have a high content of omega-3 fats in their milk.
Omega-3 fatty acids are the “good” form of cholesterol in the body, which can actually help improve heart health and prevent the onset of cardiovascular conditions such as heart attacks or strokes.

Just one cup (244 grams) of whole cow’s milk contains:

Protein:8 grams
Fat:8 grams
Calcium:28% of the RDA
Vitamin D:24% of the RDA
Riboflavin (B2):26% of the RDA
Vitamin B12:18% of the RDA
Potassium:10% of the RDA
Phosphorus:22% of the RDA
Selenium:13% of the RDA
