Whether you have been diagnosed as lactose intolerant or think you are based on the symptoms you experience from consuming dairy products, you’ll want to know what Dairy Alternatives will be safe for you.
Many people believe that just switching to grass-fed dairy animals is sufficient to control lactose intolerance symptoms, however, it is a common misconception that organic grass-fed milk and dairy products are not harmful, but the truth is, it is the pasteurization of the products that are harmful.
Grass-fed dairy products that have been scientifically altered through the heating process known as pasteurization is what changed your bodies ability to digest the lactose.
The important thing is, no matter if it’s organic, grass-fed or laden with gold, dairy is unbelievably harmful for you if it’s pasteurized simply because your body won’t be able to process the lactose and it will place a metabolic burden on your body. (1)
Raw Milk which is milk directly from the cow or goat that has not been pasteurized is one dairy alternative that works for me and countless others who are lactose intolerant.
Almond milk and coconut milk also have many health benefits, and many people find that they like the taste better than regular milk. When I can’t get my hands on raw milk, some of my favorite dairy substitutes are coconut milk and almond milk.
Almond and coconut milk are high in vitamins and minerals and filled with good nutrients such as calcium making them a great choice for dairy alternatives. That is what I use as a dairy substitute when a recipe I am making calls for milk if I don’t have raw milk available.
