To complete a well-balanced diet, you need milk. That’s what we often hear, right? And another thing we often hear is that soy milk is even better than regular dairy milk. So, let’s take a look at how these two stack up against each other:

Allergies: Soy milk is of course highly recommended for people who are lactose intolerant. But soy allergies also exist. So, while soy milk is less likely to cause problems, it’s not 100% problem-free.

Calories: The calorie count of milk, whether cow milk or soy, depends mostly on variety… especially when you consider nonfat and low-fat options. Also, flavored versions tend to have more. All in all, though, soy milk is the better option calorie-wise.

Calcium: Cow milk wins this round… so, babies and young children should definitely stick to cow’s milk, since calcium is very important for growth and development.

Fiber: Now this one is a unique advantage of soy milk compared to cow’s milk. The extra fiber can make soy milk a lot more filling, which helps suppress your appetite. That’s a nice bonus for people on a diet, right?
