Many people use dairy alternatives in their everyday lives. In particular, society’s emphasis on low-fat, low-cal nutrition has created a huge desire for something other than milk in cereal, ice-cream, coffee etc., but are these alternatives actually healthier? In this project, I will examine the media portrayal of three major dairy alternatives, soy-milk, almond-milk, and rice-milk, and whether the nutritional truths, discovered through background research, back up the views and expectations of the consumer, as determined by a questionnaire. I will compare what people think is the healthiest with what the actual facts are.
