Have you ever got lost in the dairy aisle at the grocery store? Having so many options might be intimidating.   

Know the nutritional distinctions between real dairy milk and plant-based milk replacements to make an informed selection for your family.  

Milk and non-dairy alternatives are not nutritionally equal.  

All Dairy milk is farm fresh, lightly processed, and contains milk, vitamin A, and vitamin D.   

Non-dairy alternatives often contain over 10 components, including sugar, salt, stabilizers, emulsifiers, and gums. Natural lactose, not sugar, provides the carbs in true dairy milk, regardless of fat content.   

Whole (3.5% fat), 2%, 1%, skim, lactose-free, flavored, or organic cow's milk has the same nutritional value.  

Calcium, high-quality necessary protein, vitamin A, and vitamin D are found in dairy milk, which contains thirteen naturally occurring vitamins and nutrients.
