Cow Milk Alternative: Almond Milk

Cow’s milk is a daily staple for many people and has been popular for many generations. While it’s still a popular among us but there are some studies suggest cow’s milk may have harmful effects on the body. Besides, some people also can’t drink it due to allergic to milk or intolerant of it.

Due to dietary or allergy concerns, people is looking for alternatives to cow’s milk. Therefore, milk made from almond, soy, rice and coconut milk are increasingly popular globally.
La Jugos’s almond milk (Nutty White) is made from 100% raw and fresh ground almonds imported from United States and alkaline water. It is typically lower in calories than other milks, as long as it’s unsweetened. It’s also free of saturated fat and is naturally lactose-free.

Almonds are naturally high in vitamin E, providing 37% of the daily vitamin E requirement in just 28 grams. Therefore, almond milk is a natural source of vitamin E which is a powerful antioxidant that combats inflammation and stress in the body. Besides, studies also found vitamin E helps protect against heart disease and cancer as well promotes bone and eye health.

Almond milk also contains calcium but lower if compared with cow’s milk. Calcium is an important mineral for the development and health of bones. It also helps reduce the risk of fractures and osteoporosis.

People with chronic kidney disease often avoid cow’s milk due to its high levels of phosphorus and potassium. Their kidneys are not able to clear these nutrients properly and build much phosphorus in the blood which will increase the risk of heart disease, hyperparathyroidism and bone disease. Almond milk is a suitable alternative for people trying to reduce their intake of potassium and phosphorus due to kidney disease.

Almond milk is a tasty, nutritious milk alternative that has many important benefits as mentioned below. You can use almond milk in any way that you would use regular dairy milk such as:
  • in cereal, muesli or oats at breakfast;
  • in your tea, coffee or hot chocolate;
  • in smoothies;
  • in making muffins and pancakes;
  • in soups, sauces or dressings; and
  • in making ice cream

Cold-Pressed Juice, A Happy Drink From Happy Fruit

Not sure what is cold-pressed juice? Cold-pressed juice refers to juice that uses a hydraulic press to extract juice from fruit and vegetables, as opposed to other methods such as centrifugal or single auger. Cold-pressed juices are not new to us and it have been in production for several decades. It started to gain popularity lately after known international celebrity like Gwyneth Paltrow and Kim Kardashian also drink it as juice cleanses.

Before founded, we already prefer to drink cold-pressed juice because it provides more live enzymes, vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. It carry 50 times as many nutrients as regular juice due to cold-pressed eliminates heat and oxidation while producing the juice. Of course, the price of cold-pressed juice is more expensive than normal juice, easily 3 or 4 times but it worth the price if you want the nutrients, not the water.

The produce of centrifugal juice is chopped up and flung into a fast spinning screen, which forces the juice out by centrifugal force while the produce of cold-pressed juice is chopped up, then gently but firmly squeezed by a press like a nice massage. Like people says, happy juice comes from happy fruit.

I’m happy when drinking cold-pressed juice 🙂
