Pros of Almond Milk, Cons of Cow's Milk

Growing up we had one option for what we put in our cereal. Whole milk. We didn’t have the options we have today such as skim milk, 2% reduced fat, Almond milk, goat’s milk, rice milk, coconut milk and so on. It can be overwhelming to consumers when they are walking through the grocery store. They don’t know where to even begin!

Suddenly people that grew up with dietary restrictions or were lactose intolerant finally have alternative options that were never available to them before. So what do they get? 

One of the best alternatives to cow’s milk is Almond milk. Almond milk is made from ground almonds and filtered water. It may also contain starches and thickeners to improve its consistency and shelf life. So it last longer! 

Here are the pros of Almond Milk and Cons of Cow's Milk.
