This week, we saw more click-bait vegan bashing, this time in an article published by the Telegraph.
The piece, titled The unhealthy truth about non-dairy milk, featured all kinds of disparaging and inaccurate comments about plant milks.
For example, it claimed how nutritionally inferior they are, how they are packed with sugar, and the punch line, how they are responsible for deforestation.
The nutritionist quoted appears to be a lot more pro-plant milk than the journalist who wrote the article. A quick look at the recipes on her website reveals oat milk, soy yogurt, coconut milk, and more being used in a range of largely plant-based recipes.
She suggests choosing milks with added calcium, vitamin D and B12 – good advice.
These supply similar amounts of these nutrients as cow’s milk but without the animal protein, saturated fat and hormones – yes hormones…
