The Health Benefits of Milk
The lowdown: Rice milk is created from a mixture of partially milled rice and water and is available in a variety of flavors, including chocolate, vanilla, and carob. The least likely of all the milk products to trigger allergies, it’s a good option for those who can’t drink soy, nut, or cow’s milk. It has no saturated fat or cholesterol, but almost no protein.
Good to know: Rice milk often comes packaged in an aseptic container and doesn’t have to be refrigerated until it’s opened.
