Cow's milk or oats? The study that will make you change your mind about you thinking you are making the right choice
Supermarkets are overflowing with plant-based milk, but a recent study isn't so optimistic.
Plant-based milk or cow's milk? This is a question that is mostly leaning towards plant-based. In the supermarket we are all bombarded and convinced that we are doing the best when we buy an almond, coconut or oat milk and do not get cow's, sheep's or goat's milk.
But what does the study by American researchers reported today by CNN say.
Tiranapost adapted it in Albanian to reiterate that no trend has value before health.
The plant-based dairy market is exploding, however, not all of these dairy options are good for you.
The study analyzed nutrition labels and ingredients for 233 plant-based milk products from 23 different manufacturers and found that only 28 of the drinks had as much or more protein, vitamin D and calcium as cow's milk.
"I'm not worried about that since it's easy to get these nutrients from other sources and cow's milk certainly isn't perfect," said lead study author Abigail Johnson. "But if a consumer thinks that plant-based milk is a special substitute for cow's milk, many are not."
