Dairy vs plant-based drinks.

According to the Spanish Food Code (CAE), “milk” means the whole, unaltered, unadulterated and colostrum-free product of the regular, complete and uninterrupted sterile milking of healthy, well-fed female domestic mammals, while a plant-based drink is one whose source is from outside the animal kingdom (almond, soya, rice, coconut, oats, etc.).

In our diet, milk is the main source of calcium and facilitates the “real” use of it by our bodies. This is why plant-based drinks can’t be used as a substitute for dairy products, as they don’t meet the nutritional needs for calcium and vitamin D at the various stages of life. To reach the amount of absorbable calcium contained in a glass of milk (250ml), we would have to eat more than five portions of spinach (700 g), 400 g of anchovies with oil, or 400 g of almonds.
