Cow’s Milk or Almond Milk

With all the different types of diets coming out every day, you might be unsure about what you should and shouldn’t be putting into your body. Now we know how hard it can be to decide on what to eat, but have you given it much thought? Well, wait, let’s be more specific. Have you thought about what kind of milk you should drink? If your answer is yes, then you have probably noticed that there is a massive variety of milk available.

This includes cow’s milk, oat milk, almond milk, and even coconut milk to mention a few. But, we are here to talk about cow’s milk and almond milk. Let us take a look at the components that make up each milk as this will give us a better understanding of the benefits of each milk. First, let’s look at the amount of protein each milk contains per 100g. For cow’s milk on average, it is about 3.4g of protein per 100g of milk while almond milk only contains about 0.4g of protein per 100g of milk. If you are looking to cut down on calories in your diet you would probably like to know that 100g of cow’s milk is 35 calories while 100g of almond milk is less than half of that at only 13 calories.

While the amount of fat and salt contained in both types of milk are virtually the same, that will not make any difference in that regard. However, one of the most obvious differences when it comes to cow’s milk and almond milk is the fact that almond milk does not contain lactose. This is only really relevant to those who are lactose intolerant or allergic to lactose. One other thing that you should take note of when comparing the two kinds of milk is that almond milk contains vitamin D while cow’s milk does not.
