With roughly 75% of the world finding it difficult to digest lactose, it is no wonder the plant-based milk industry is booming.
Whether you are vegan, lactose-intolerant or choose to follow a dairy-free diet, we have created a quick guide to drinking plant based milk to suit everyone's preference.
Soya: As the original milk alternative, soya milk is thought to be the most nutritious plant milk. With 7-12g of protein per glass, it is a great addition to the human diet.
Almond: Perfect to use on cereals and porridge to create a nutty taste. It contains high amounts of heart-healthy fats and vitamin A and E. Also, almond milk is one of the highest calcium containing milks-perfect for promoting strong bones.
Oat: Oats are best known for their high protein and fibre content alongside cholesterol reducing ability. It is thought oat milk could benefit weight loss. Oat milk is also high in vitamin A and calcium.
Try it in your flat white coffee for a creamy texture.
Rice: Rice milk is one of the sweetest non-dairy milks available. It is full of fibre, low in fat and has almost no saturated fat. It is a great source of vitamins, iron and manganese- perfect for a healthy diet.
Coconut: Coconut milk can be used in many different ways- from a Thai green curry to the milk in porridge. It is so versatile, which is one of the best things about it.
