Oat Milk Vs Almond Milk: What's The Difference?
By ARIANNA ENDICOTT
Oat milk and almond milk are two of the most common non-dairy milk alternatives. According to One Green Planet, non-dairy milk can be even more nutritious than cow's milk, and if you like the taste of both almond and oat milk, here's the info that can help you determine which is best for your recipes and/or dietary needs.
Exact nutritional values vary by brand, but most oat milk is an excellent source of B vitamins, and can be beneficial for your hair, skin, and nails. Meanwhile, almond milk is a great source of magnesium, which is essential for controlling blood sugar levels and metabolism, and its high calcium content helps build bone strength.
Also, almond milk may be better for a low-sodium diet, while oat milk is friendlier towards people with allergies (but always check the label). As for culinary use, creamy oat milk is perfect for cereal, coffee, and baked sweets like cakes and cookies, while nutty almond milk is best in smoothies and savory foods like soups, pot pies, or bread.
