As soya milk is free from animal product and lactose, it is a suitable alternative for vegans and also for people who are either lactose intolerant or allergic to cow’s milk. However, ideally, you should choose a soya milk with no added sugar, salt and additives. Other cow’s milk alternatives include almond milk, rice milk and oat milk.
