Different Types Of Milk & Their Benefits!

CONS: The versions that aren’t fat-free are higher in saturated fats and calories. The protein in cow’s milk can be a common allergen for babies & adults. Whole milk isn’t suitable for people who are lactose intolerant or dairy sensitive.


Soy milk is made from soybeans and filtered water. Like other plant-based milk, it has thickeners to improve consistency and shelf life.One cup of unsweetened soy milk: 80-100 calories (4g of carbs, 4g of fat, 7g of protein.)

PROS: Since it comes from plants, soy milk is naturally free of cholesterol & low in saturated fat with no lactose. It has same amount of protein as cow’s milk yet lower in calories. Good source of vitamin A, vitamin B-12 & potassium.

CONS: Soy is a common allergen for both adults and children. Too much soy may be a problem for people with thyroid and other fertility conditions. Most of the soy produced in North America comes from genetically modified plants, which is a concern to some.
