Five Reasons Why Plant Milk is Best for Our Health

Plant-based food is now very popular nowadays. That's why recently, yours truly Runner Rocky is shifting from the real meat to the plant-based products. It's a guilt-free eating for me because you won't worry about cholesterol, fats, and other things not needed by our body. And the good thing, milk today is also plant-based!

Well, if you're on a strict diet, you will definitely love this article! And here is the full story:

Did you know that plant-based milk has grown in popularity around the world, especially in the Philippines? There are Filipinos who have started exploring non-lactose alternatives as part of their health and fitness routines.

This year, plant-based products placed fourth in global food trends as more people purchase them for their homes. For those who are looking to try out plant-based milk, here are some helpful facts to keep in mind:

#1 Plant milks are nutritious, thanks to the natural goodness from plants.

In addition to their intrinsic nutritional benefits, plant milks can be enriched with calcium and vitamin D, the key essential micronutrients present in milk. Other nutritional benefits of plants used in beverages include:

For some products, such as Vitasoy Plus (Milky Flavor, Oat Flavor, Original Flavor, Milky Vanilla Flavor, Milky Oat Flavor and Milky Almond Flavor), fortified plant milk can even provide as much as 36% more calcium than regular milk.

Plant milks are naturally lactose- and cholesterol-free, lower in calories (compared to dairy) and vegan friendly

#2 Plant milks can serve different dietary needs.

Other than being rich in calcium, fortified plant milks are naturally free of lactose and cholesterol and tend to contain less calories and saturated fat than regular milk. Hence, they are suitable for people with different dietary needs, including health-conscious individuals, those who follow a plant-based, flexitarian or vegan diet. This also includes people who are lactose intolerant.

#3 Plant milk is more planet-friendly.

According to The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World 2020, more than seventy five percent of diet-related greenhouse gas emissions come from animal-sourced foods consumed worldwide. Dairy, or more popularly known as cow’s milk, is the second contributor to global greenhouse gas emissions, with 25% share, according to reports from international health organizations. By shifting to a plant-based diet, greenhouse gas emissions can be reduced significantly.

The study by Poore & Nemecek shows the production of plant milk has a much lower environmental impact.

The production of plant milk has also been found to have lower environmental impact as it uses less water and land, and emits less carbon compared to the production of dairy milk.

#4 National dietary guidelines recommend plant milks as a part of diverse diet

Plant milks can be delicious choices for consumers who want to have a diverse diet that consists of cereals, legumes, nuts and seeds, whole grains, soybeans. A diverse diet is recommended by many national dietary guidelines, such as:

#5 Plant milks can taste “milky” and “creamy” too.

Taste is usually one of the items people consider when purchasing plant-based products. With new technologies, the taste and texture of plant milks are now milkier and creamier.

Plant milk made from soy, oat and almond, can be enriched with calcium and vitamins in addition to their intrinsic benefits.

For instance, Vitasoy has developed creamy soy milk drinks to meet the needs of those wanting the benefits of plant milk, but also looking for that milky taste and creamy mouthfeel closer to dairy. Plant-based milk options are also expanding in coffee chains, thanks to the innovations of Barista edition plant milks. They’re easy to foam, have a creamy mouthfeel, with more neutral flavors that can nicely complement coffee.

Plant milk is not just good for you, but for the planet too! Treat yourself to a tasty and nutritious animal-free milk with Vitasoy’s selection of plant-based drinks! Shop them at the nearest supermarket, and online on Lazada.
