Whether you don’t like milk, or milk doesn’t like you, Like Milk is a nutritious plant alternative
What is Like Milk?
Like Milk is a nutritious plant milk, made from pea protein, which has been formulated with the same levels of calcium and protein as full cream dairy milk, but with zero fat and much lower levels of sugar. It is the first plant-based beverage in Australia to be made using pea protein, which has been selected for its robust amino acid profile.
Dr Sonja Kukuljan, Australia’s Own Dietitian and food enthusiast, says “For those of us who can’t drink dairy milk, and instead choose a plant-based alternative, getting enough of the key nutrients provided by dairy can be tricky. That’s where Like Milk can help. It has its own unique flavour, which can add an extra ‘zing’ to breakfast muesli and cereal, but more importantly, it provides similar amounts of protein, calcium, phosphorus and Vitamin B2 as cow’s milk, with added Vitamin D to help with calcium and phosphorus mineral absorption and also Vitamin B12, to help reduce tiredness and fatigue. All in all, Like Milk provides the key nutrients of cow’s milk, but without the dairy and the lactose, so you can Feel Positively Good.”
So, how does a serve of Like Milk compare to full cream dairy milk?
We use pea protein for its robust amino acid profile and add Calcium, Phosphorus, Vitamins B2 and B12 and vitamin D.
Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, which our bodies need for muscle development and wellbeing. The nine essential amino acids present in Like Milk are important to eat because our bodies can’t make them. They can all be found naturally in animal proteins and dairy but it’s good to know that they’re in Like Milk, too. Along with calcium, Like Milk is also fortified with phosphorus, vitamins B2 and B12, the same goodness found in dairy.
