Does almond milk make your boobs grow bigger? It’s a question that has been trending on google for the last few weeks and websites certainly exist that tout the benefit of almond milk for breast enlargement. We aren’t doctors but if the ingredient list is anything to go by we’d have to say no. Have you ever picked up a bottle of almond milk and had a look at what’s inside a typical glass of your nutty water?
What’s in nut milk:
Would you be surprised if we told you that almond milk often contains less than 2% almonds? The rest is water, sugar, some sort of oil for that creamy mouth feel, and then the addition of things like Calcium Carbonate (calcium supplement), Potassium Citrate (potassium citric acid), Gellan Gum and vitamins. On a side note did you know it takes over 4L of water to grow a single almond?
But really there’s a new milk alternative in town and that’s oat mylk. Oatly is a Swedish brand of oat milk and is seriously popular right now. 10% of Oatly mylk is oats, the rest is water and then they add Canola (rapeseed) oil, again for that creamy mouth feel. That doesn’t sound very healthy to us!
Added Calcium in nut milk:
There is a lot of hype around nut mylk as the healthy alternative to cows milk and often times people use it as a complete dairy replacement. Companies fortify their mylk with calcium, vitamins and protein so as to provide the necessary vitamins and minerals needed to grow healthy bodies. Unsurprisingly the added calcium and nutrients is not bioavailable and so dieticians really recommend including some dairy in your diet.
