For creamy texture in desserts and sauces, dunking warm chocolate chip cookies, or a classic breakfast cereal companion, milk is a refrigerator staple. Typically sourced from herd animals such as cows, goats, and sheep, dairy milk is pasteurized with heat to kill bacteria. Most consumers are familiar with the mild taste of cow’s milk, but goat’s milk is said to be easier to digest thanks to a lower presence of lactose.
Dairy-Free Milk Alternatives
Moo-ve over cow’s milk: You’re not the only option in town anymore! Dairy-free milks such as oat milk and almond milk have become increasingly popular, while coconut milk has been used in Indian diets for millenia. Vegan milks still offer protein without any undue stress to animals or sensitive digestive tracts. For breakfast cereals, try Koya’s line of organic vegan milks, including Almond and Oat Milk. Making vegan smoothies or curries? Pour in coconut milk from brands such as Nature’s Charm and Aroy-D.
