Who is Suitable for Drinking Plant Protein Drink?

Plant protein drinks are milky drinks made of nuts and soybeans (such as peanuts, almonds, walnuts, coconut, etc.). After they are processed and blended, they are made by autoclaving or aseptic packaging.

For people who are lactose intolerant, as long as lactose is not included, it can be used as a beverage choice, including plant protein drinks, but generally we recommend low-sugar or sugar-free drinks, such as soy plant drinks, coconut plant drinks, almond plant drinks, etc.

What is lactose intolerance?

As a nutrient-rich food, milk contains carbohydrates, protein, fat, calcium, vitamin B2 and many other nutrients. The carbohydrates in milk are mainly lactose.

Lactose is a disaccharide, which is broken down by human lactase into a molecule of glucose and a molecule of galactose in our gastrointestinal tract and absorbed by the body in the small intestine. When ingesting lactose-containing foods, some people have insufficient or low amounts of lactase in the body, which will lead to lactose being unable to be digested and absorbed in the small intestine. And undigested lactose provides a large amount of products for the fermentation of the intestinal flora of the large intestine, resulting in a syndrome of diarrhea, abdominal pain and flatulence, which is what we call lactose intolerance. According to current surveys, lactose intolerance is not a small-scale issue, and more than half of people worldwide have lactase deficiency. Therefore, if you have a little milk or dairy products containing lactose and then have bloating, abdominal pain, or even diarrhea, it can basically be determined that you are “lactose intolerant”.

Are plant protein drinks suitable for people who are lactose intolerant?

For people who are lactose intolerant, various plant protein drinks are indeed a good alternative. Especially vegans or people who are naturally resistant to dairy products, their dietary structure lacks dairy products for a long time, and they are very prone to nutrient deficiencies. Nutritionists emphasize that these people need to pay attention to the extra intake of protein, calcium, potassium, vitamin D, and vitamin A in their diet. Milk is not only an important source of healthy food, but also an important drink. For vegans or those who have rejected dairy products for a long time, although plant protein drinks (such as soybean protein drinks and coconut protein drinks) cannot completely replace milk, they can at least play a supplementary role. In recent years, with the accelerated pace of life and work, beverages based on plant ingredients are becoming more and more popular among people, especially young people.
