Almond milk is made by mixing almonds with water, then filtering the remaining beverage to get rid of the solids. Additionally, you may prepare it by mixing water with almond butter. 

Its flavour is nice and nutty, and its texture is creamy like that of ordinary milk. For this reason, it is a popular choice for persons following a vegan diet and those who are allergic or intolerant to dairy.

Since almond milk is often used as an alternative to dairy milk, most manufacturers will add vitamins and minerals to the final product so dairy-free consumers don’t miss out on valuable nutrients.

The vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants in almond milk help provide important health benefits:

Good Source of Magnesium

Almond milk is rich in magnesium. This mineral is one of the four most-common minerals in your body. It’s a necessary part of more than three hundred important enzyme reactions. Magnesium is particularly important for controlling blood sugar levels and using energy in the body.

Unsweetened almond milk doesn’t raise blood sugar

Many almond milks on the market are loaded with added sugar.

Sugar-free almond milk, on the other hand, is a low carb beverage, made up of less than 2% carbs, or 3.43 g of carbs in 1 cup 

In comparison, low fat cow’s milk contains 5% carbs, totaling 12 g in 1 cup 

Almond milk is also high in fat and protein relative to its carb content. For this reason, it doesn’t cause a spike in blood sugar levels, making it suitable for people with diabetes, as well as those who are following a low carb diet.

However, be sure to read the ingredient lists and select products that are as pure as possible.

Helpful for Lactose Intolerance

Almond milk does not contain lactose, since it is not an animal product. As a result, it’s the perfect substitute for people with lactose Intolerance .Almond milk can be used in any recipe that calls for animal milk. 

High in Bone-Building Calcium

Most commercial brands of almond milk are fortified with calcium. Bone health is deeply tied to calcium, because the mineral makes up most hard structures in bones. Getting enough calcium keeps your bones strong and can help your body fight osteoporosis.

May Slow Progression of Cognitive Diseases

Almond milk is full of Vitamin E, which is an antioxidant known to help your brain. Studies have shown a link between getting enough vitamin E and a lower risk of cognitive diseases like Alzheimer’s Disease. It’s also been shown to slow the progression of Alzheimer’s Disease in serious cases.
