Flaxseed Milk vs. Almond Milk: Which Plant-Based Milk Is Better?
If you're looking for a plant-based alternative to dairy milk, flaxseed and almond milk are two of the most popular options out there. But which is better? Let's dive into it!
Almond milk is one of the most popular plant-based milk because it has a very mild flavor that goes great with just about anything you put it in—including cereal or oatmeal. Almond milk is made from almonds but doesn't have much nutritional value—so it's best for people who want something light and not too sweet in their drinks. Did you know that it takes over 20 gallons of water to produce a single glass of almond milk? 80% of the world’s almonds are coming from California. Most of the nutrients found in almonds are strained out when making the milk. Even though almonds are a good source of protein, almond milk is not. Almond milk is also not a good source of calcium.
Flax (also called linseed) seeds have been used in Europe as a medicinal remedy for centuries. Today, they are still used in many cultures to treat various health issues, including heart disease and arthritis. Flaxseed is rich in alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid that has been shown to boost heart health and reduce inflammation. When made into milk, flaxseed can be used as a substitute for dairy milk because it has similar nutritional values and tastes similar to cow's milk. It also contains no cholesterol or lactose (which makes it suitable for people with lactose intolerance). It has more fiber than almond milk and contains less fat per serving than almond milk. If you're looking for something that's great tasting, flaxseed milk may be your best bet!
