Milk Alternatives: The Complete Guide to Plant-Based Milks

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Tue, Jun 11, 2019

With diary and lactose intolerances on the rise in recent years, as well as consumers turning to more eco-friendly diets such as veganism, it's no wonder that milk alternatives are more popular than ever before. Made from nuts, seeds and grains, there are a variety of plant-based milk options for consumers no matter their dietary needs or restrictions that provide both great flavor and great nutrition. 

Choosing the right milk alternative is especially important for those with diabetes or those looking to manage their blood sugar levels. The team over at Snap Kitchen worked with a registered dietician to break down the eight most popular plant-based milk options, giving consumers the inside scoop on nutritional information, taste and texture so that so that they can make the best decision for them. For example, those looking to keep balanced blood sugar levels need to stick with options that are low in sugar and carbs. Cashew and coconut milk are great low-carb options that can be made at home as well as bought in-store, while rice and oat milk are best avoided to prevent a blood sugar spike and crash. By following these guidelines, diabetic consumers can enjoy plant-based milks with ease.

Another important consideration (besides the carbohydrate content) is the lectin present in each variety of plant-based milk. You should choose the beverage based on what is neutral or best for your blood type and avoid the foods and beverages that are on the avoid list for your blood type.
 Check out Snap Kitchen's infographic below to learn more about these milk options as well as the taste and texture comparison chart so you can easily swap these healthy options with diary products in a variety of recipes and baked goods.
