All articles

Almond milk is no trendy fad, it’s an amazing milk alternative that’s here to stay. It’s perfect for vegans, those that are lactose intolerant and anyone who just wants to live a little bit healthier. There are so many health benefits, here are just a few of them!

Almond milk is good for your bones

It’s not only dairy milk that contains calcium, almond milk does too. Our Almond Breeze® can help you maintain healthy teeth and bones. And, if you want an even bigger calcium boost, you can always try our Almond Breeze® Nutri+ Calcium. It contains over half of your recommended daily intake of calcium in just one 200ml serving.

Almond milk strengthens the immune system

Almond milk contains vitamins A, D and E, so using it every day would be a great daily boost for your body’s immune system. Even better, it’s also rich in vitamin B and iron which both increase muscle strength and healing.

Almond milk can flatter your figure

Almond milk is lighter than dairy milk (except skimmed). Whether you choose plain, sweetened or flavoured almond milk, you’ll be consuming fewer calories and fat. One glass of our very own Unsweetened Almond Breeze® only contains around 13 calories and 1.1g of fat. Just to put that into context, one glass of dairy milk has 120 calories and 5 grams of fat!

Almond milk is generally low in saturated fat which helps lower the level of harmful cholesterol in the blood and reduce your overall risk of having a heart attack. It also has natural omega-3 fatty acids that help reduce the risks of high blood pressure and help you maintain a healthy heart.

How to get more almond milk in your day-to-day diet
