Milk Alternatives

All “milks” are not created equal. Before you reach for a carton of almond milk, soy milk, or other dairy alternatives, it’s important to learn what you’re really pouring into your cup or bowl. Dairy alternatives tout a nutrient or two, but they don’t measure up to the nine essential nutrients in cow’s milk.
