Navigating the aisle of non-dairy beverages

If you've been in the grocery store recently, you may have noticed that the aisle of non-dairy beverages continues to grow, with soy milk, almond milk, and even pea milk and oat milk.

And that has sown consumers' confusion about the nutrition values in these drinks. A survery in 2018 showed that 73 percent of consumers thought almond milk had as much or more protein than cow's milk per serving. Judy Simon, registered dietitian and nutritionist, walks through what you should look for on product labels to determine what's the right choice for you.
