World Plant Milk Day

Every year on August 22nd, World Plant Milk Day encourages people to drink plant-derived milk. It's also a day to learn more about plant milk's nutritional value.

This includes goat milk, as well as milk that comes from buffalos, camels, sheep, yaks, and horses. Did you know that milk also comes from plants? These are some of the most common plant milk products.

Some people are unable to tolerate lactose in their diet. bowel cramps, bloating, diarrhea,, and indigestion are all typical of lactose intolerance. About 65% of the world's population is lactose intolerant. Since these people can't drink animal milk, they miss out on a great source of calcium. This essential mineral helps bone growth, keeps teeth clean, and helps blood to clot.

On the other hand, plant milk does not contain lactose. It does, however, still contain calcium. In fact, some forms of plant milk are higher in calcium than animal milk! Plant milk also contains less fat, less sugar, and more Vitamin D than animal milk, as shown by the table below. Many plant milk consumers say it tastes just as good as animal milk.
