Milk for the Lactose Intolerant


Whether you are Lactose Intolerant or choose not to have pasteurized milk – what milk alternatives are available to you?

The good news is, there are plenty of Lactose Free Milks available to you. The only thing that you need to figure out is which will provide nutritional value along with a delicious taste.

Lactose Free Milk

Soy Milk – Probably one of the most popular lactose free milk, and probably one of the worst for you, nutritionally speaking. Soy has it’s health benefits, but should be consumed only in limited amounts. If you have soy milk, you are probably intending to have the soy milk on a daily basis. Soy is something you shouldn’t consume on a daily basis on such large quantities. Soy is something you should have in moderation.

Rice Milk – This is a great alternative for cow’s milk. Rice milk does have a more water-like consistency, but still great for cereal or baking.

Almond Milk – This is a good alternative to cow’s milk, but typically most Almond milks available in-stores contain some amounts of soy in them. Almond milk has a sweet flavor in it, and can be used for cereal and baking.

Coconut Milk – This milk is actually the water found in the coconut. Coconut is probably one of the most calorie-dense milks out there, but still nutrient dense. This milk may not be ideal for daily consumption, but can be a great alternative for baking.

Goat Milk – This milk does contain lactose in it,  but many people who are lactose intolerant can still handle Goat’s milk. Goat’s milk is known to be more easily digested and considered a healthier alternative to Cow’s milk.

Most of the Lactose Free Milks that I mentioned are available in shelf stable containers. This means you can buy the milk in bulk, leave it in your pantry, and just add one carton at a time to the fridge as needed. Even if you don’t want to drink these Lactose Free milks on a regular basis, they would make a great addition to your food storage.
