  1. Organic Milk– This type of milk comes from cows. Government regulations state that these cows must be fed organic feed and no growth hormones.

 

  1. Grassfed Milk– Also comes from cows. Grassfed milk is slightly different than organic milk. Grassfed bovine graze year round in a pasture. This milk is often non-homogenized and certified organic.

 

  1. Coconut Milk– Consumers enjoy the coconut taste, low sodium, and high amounts of B12. Beware of fat content, many brands are high in saturated fat.

 

  1. Raw Milk– Think of milk straight from the cow. Raw milk is unpasteurized, making it controversial.

However, consumers should be aware that non pasteurized milk can contain harmful microorganisms that can make you sick.

 

  1. Rice Milk– This light milk substitute can be a great beverage for before and after workouts. Rice milk is high in carbs and electrolytes.

 

  1. Almond Milk– Almond milk is often chosen for it’s sweet taste, although unsweetened almond milk is lower in calories. It is high in calcium, vitamin D, and vitamin E. However, almond milk lacks protein.

 

  1. Lactose Free Milk– Lactose is the sugar found in milk. Lactose free milk has lactase (the enzyme that breaks down lactose), making the milk easier to drink for lactose intolerant individuals.

 

  1. Goat Milk– While not popular in western diets, goat’s milk is very popular world wide. It does not need to be synthetically homogenized like cow’s milk. It has lower levels of casein, which is beneficial to those who may be allergic.

 

  1. Hemp Milk– made from cannabis seed (without psychoactive ingredient, THC). Hemp milk is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, but a poor source of calcium and protein.
