NUTRITIONAL
DRINKS IN THE
WORLD — BOASTING
HIGH QUALITY
PROTEIN, VITAMINS,
AND MINERALS.
BUT
WHEN YOU VISIT THE
MILK AISLE IN THE
GROCERY STORE —
THERE’S MORE THAN
JUST YOUR TYPICAL
2 PERCENT MILK TO
CHOOSE FROM.
K-S-N-T NEWS
MORNING ANCHOR
BRITTANY MOORE
TALKED WITH LOCAL
DIETICIANS TO FIND
OUT WHAT OUR
CHOICES
ARE TODAY…AND
HOW THEY ARE
DIFFERENT.
###
BRITTANY: GOT
MILK? IF THE
ANSWER IS YES —
WHAT KIND OF MILK
DO YOU PREFER?
I prefer highlands 1%
I drink Vitamin D milk
because it’s good fats
and good calcium.
BRITTANY:
TYPICALLY COW MILK
IS THE MAIN ANSWER
– BUT THE AMOUNT
OF ALTERNATIVE
OPTIONS OUT TODAY
– MAY SURPRISE
YOU! Amber
Groeling/Hy-vee
Registered Dietician:
There are a lot of
choices for regular milk
and milk alternatives.
So it really depends on
a person’s nutrition
goals.
BRITTANY
: ACCORDING TO
MEDICAL NEWS
TODAY – THE MAIN
ALTERNATIVES TO
COW MILK ARE —
SOY MILK – ALMOND
MILK – RICE MILK –
COCONUT MILK – AND
HEMP MILK.
BUT THE QUESTION
WE’RE ALL ASKING IS
– WHY DO WE NEED
ALL OF THESE
OPTIONS? Amber
Groeling/Hy-vee
Registered Dietician:
The reason these
alternative milks have
become more popular
is a…
People are avoiding
dairy and they’re
following a vegan or a
vegetarian diet.
But also some of them
have a lot less calories
and a lot less sugars.
BRITTANY: THE
ALTERNATIVES ALSO
BENEFIT ANYONE
WHO’S LACTOSE
INTOLERATE.
BUT NOW THERE’S
NEW COW MILK
OPTIONS TOO.
Amber Groeling/Hy-
vee Registered
Dietician: The Fairlife
Milk is an ultra filtered
milk and so it actually
filters 99.9 percent of
the lactose out – which
results in a lower sugar
containing milk product
and is actually higher in
protein.
BRITTANY: A MAIN
CONCERN FOR
ANYONE WITH MILK
DIETARY
RESTRICTIONS – IS
WILL YOU BE
GETTING THE SAME
NUTRIENTS THAT
YOU SEE IN COW
MILK? Amber
Groeling/Hy-vee
Registered Dietician:
The nutrition is there
naturally in the cows
milk.
Where as all of the
nutrition and added
vitamins and minerals
has been fortified in the
nut alternatives and the
soy milk.
BRITTANY: THE
DIFFERENCE IN
PROTEIN BETWEEN
MILK OPTIONS IS
ALSO SOMETHING TO
CONSIDER.
BRITTANY
: AND IF ALL OF
THOSE MILK
OPTIONS AREN’T
ENOUGH FOR YOU –
SEVERAL OTHERS
NEW TO THE
MARKET INCLUDE:
QUINOA MILK, OAT
MILK, POTATO MILK,
7-GRAIN MILK AND
SUNFLOWER MILK.
THE OPTIONS ARE
ENDLESS.
