Milk, yes or no, in the ketogenic diet

Latte, si o no, nella dieta chetogenica
[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Is milk allowed on the keto diet? What about dairy on the keto diet? What should you avoid?[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Cow's milk is not keto because it is a source of carbohydrates from its natural sugars. The sugar naturally found in all milk is difficult for some people to digest, which is another reason why many dieters may want to avoid this breakfast staple.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row ][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text="Can I choose lactose-free milk?" use_theme_fonts="yes"][vc_column_text]Lactose-free milk has the same amount of carbohydrates as regular milk because it is regular milk, except that the enzyme lactase is added.
Lactase helps break down lactose into smaller sugar molecules, and people with lactose intolerance do not secrete enough lactase enzyme to comfortably digest lactose.
Therefore, the sugar is still there, it's just easier to digest.[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text="How many carbohydrates does milk have?" use_theme_fonts="yes"][vc_column_text]There are different types of milk, whole milk, skim milk and different amounts of low fat milk.
The different types of milk vary in fat content with a slight variation in carbohydrates and proteins.
If the fat in the milk is reduced, the carbohydrates in the milk increase.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text] Less fat = more carbohydrates [/vc_column_text][vc_column_text] Carbohydrate content per 240 ml of milk (one glass):
  • whole milk = 12g carbs, 8g fat, 8g protein
  • Skimmed Milk = 13g Carbs, 0g Fat, 8g Protein
[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text="Some good substitutes for cow's milk" use_theme_fonts="yes"][vc_column_text]
There are some milk substitutes suitable for the keto diet:

  • Almond milk.
  • Soya milk.
  • Coconut milk.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text="Almond Milk" use_theme_fonts="yes"][vc_column_text]With its creamy texture, subtle nutty flavor and Exceptionally low in carbohydrates , almond milk is one of the most popular milk substitutes not only on the keto diet, but other diets as well.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]A cup of unsweetened almond milk has only 30 calories, 1 gram of net carbs and 3 grams of fat. It's also a natural source of vitamins A and E, but many brands add calcium and vitamin D to their products to bring the nutritional profile closer to milk.
  • Improve heart health
  • Almond milk lowers bad cholesterol and raises good cholesterol. This is due to the monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids it contains.
  • Helps build strong bones
  • Almond milk contains significant amounts of vitamin D and healthy fats that improve bone health and prevent osteoporosis.
  • Fights free radicals
  • The antioxidants in almond milk (especially the vitamins) fight free radicals and oxidative stress that can be caused by chemicals in foods and other things.
[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text="Soy Milk" use_theme_fonts="yes"][vc_column_text]Soy Milk contains 3 grams of net carbs per cup (240ml) and is fairly low in protein.
However, you need to pay attention to a number of important aspects.
Obviously the origin . The ideal would be to consume only certified organic products. Also remember that most of the products you find in the supermarket are sugary, so always pay attention to the label .[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text="Coconut milk" use_theme_fonts="yes"][vc_column_text]This drink is an excellent choice in the ketogenic diet, it is low in protein, but care should be taken as some brands contain up to 5 g of net carbohydrates per cup (240 mL).
Coconut milk is higher in fat, but these are the "good" fats. In it we find omega-3 , excellent and very important in Keto, and lauric acid , a medium-chain saturated fatty acid that is often sold in the form of a food supplement under the name of MCT oil .[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row ]
