‘Plant-based milk’ refers to non-dairy milks which are made from plants, such as almond milk, soy milk, rice milk and oat milk. Plant-based milks vary widely in their macro-nutrient (protein, carbohydrates and fat) composition, but also in terms of the micro-nutrients (vitamins and minerals) they contain.
In terms of micro-nutrients, some are a little higher in certain vitamins than others (e.g. almond and hazelnut milk will contain significant quantities of vitamin E, whereas others won’t), and some contain unique health-promoting components (such as beta-glycan in oat milk).
Other plant-based milks include nut milks other than almond (cashew, hazelnut, macadamia) and grain-based milks (quinoa, spelt) e.t.c.
Why plant-based milk?
Lactose intolerance causes the body not to easily digest lactose, a type of natural sugar found in milk and dairy products. (This is not the same thing as a food allergy to milk.)
What are the symptoms?
Symptoms of lactose intolerance can be mild to severe, depending on how much lactase your body makes. If you have lactose intolerance, your symptoms may include: Bloating, Pain or cramps. Gurgling or rumbling sounds in your belly, abdominal discomfort e.t.c.
If you feel sick every time you have milk or any another dairy product, you may have lactose intolerance. Sometimes people who have never had problems with milk or dairy products suddenly have lactose intolerance. This is more common as you get older.
If you think you might have lactose intolerance, talk with your doctor. He or she can make sure that your symptoms are caused by lactose intolerance and not by another problem.
How is it treated?
There is no cure for lactose intolerance. But you can treat your symptoms by limiting or avoiding milk products. Some people use milk with reduced lactose, or they substitute plant-based milk and plant-based milk products for milk and milk products.
