Summary: Give one or more of these 10 healthy non-dairy milks a try today.
 
Most of America is dead-set on classic, dairy milk. And not just Americans either: the global dairy industry is expected to generate $442.32 billion USD in revenue in 2019. However, as much as we love dairy products, are they the best option for our digestive systems? While some have no problem with dairy in their systems, a growing number of people are experiencing symptoms of lactose intolerance without even realizing that’s the cause behind their symptoms.
 
One of the most common arguments against drinking dairy milk is that we are the only mammal that is drinking milk after needing it as babies and that our digestive systems are not meant to continue to drink the milk of other animals. Many also argue that dairy can lead to anything from bad skin to diabetes and heart disease, and some milk contains hormones and antibiotics. There is a great deal of controversy surrounding this issue but, putting those aside, if trying a non-dairy milk is something you’re interested in, there are many options available to you.


 
It is important to keep in mind, however, that not all non-dairy milks are created equal. Some brands include an ingredient called carrageenan that is controversial because it has been linked to health issues. In addition, many have added sugar that you probably want to avoid. There are many benefits, however, to non-dairy milk, especially those without the above additions. First, most non-dairy milks actually provide 50% more calcium than dairy milk. Non-dairy milk is also cholesterol free, better for the environment, and easier to digest.
 
While you can actually make your own non-dairy milks at home, there are many brands that are healthy alternatives to dairy milk for you to give a try. While you may balk at the price, you can often find these products on sale, so do a little digging. Leave those preconceived notions at home when you head to the store, and you will likely be pleasantly surprised by what you find.
