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 wishing to consume a healthy diet, mixing foods to get the full complement of essential amino acids can be a key consideration. In this way, Like Milk, with its mix of essential amino acids, vitamins and minerals, but without the lactose (milk sugar) and fat of full cream dairy, can help achieve a healthy diet.”
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.
