What is the healthiest milk to drink?

Cow's milk, the most common type of milk found in many households, has healthy vitamins and nutrients like calcium, vitamin D, niacin and protein.

A cup of cow's milk has about 8 grams of protein per 8 ounces (240ml serving) and satisfies about one-third of your daily protein requirement.

It is also a great source of calcium as commercially-sold milk is usually fortified with vitamin D which helps with calcium absorption, making it a well-rounded food source. 

The American Heart Association recommends fat-free, 0.5% fat and 1% fat milk for consuming as they are lower in fat, saturated fat, cholesterol and calories and have slightly more nutrients. 

Soy milk is a popular plant-based milk and has a similar nutrient profile to that of cow's milk.

Soy milk is made from soaking soybeans in water and grinding them, and then, filtering the remnant mixture to form a creamy beverage.

It is high in protein, calcium, vitamin B12 and potassium and can be used as a cow milk substitute in coffee, tea, baking and more.
