NUTRITION AND HEART HEALTH
Plant-based milk can be a nutritious and healthy beverage option for the lactose intolerant as it provides a source of protein and dietary fibre, yet low in saturated fat. In particular, the protein quality from soybean is similar to protein from an animal source (e.g. egg), and it contains isoflavones, which may help to lower LDL (bad) cholesterol, thereby reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Nowadays, there are many healthier beverage options; some fortified with good fat (Omega-3). Consuming Omega-3 may also lower our risk of cardiovascular disease as it helps to reduce blood clotting in the arteries, protects arteries from hardening, and reduces the level of triglycerides in the blood.
For those considering new beverage options, soy milk fortified with calcium and Omega-3 can increase your calcium and Omega-3 intake. Embark on a healthier lifestyle today by choosing your beverage wisely!
