Cow, soy, almond, or oat: Which milk is best for you?

You can find all kinds of milk on the store shelves these days, such as cow and goat milk, or plant-based milk like soy, almond, hazelnut, coconut, rice, flax, oat, hemp, and more. Where do these different kinds of milk come from? How are they made? Which milk uses the fewest resources and produces the lowest levels of greenhouse gas emissions?

And when considering your personal health and the planet’s health, how can you decide which milk is best for you?

Compare and contrast four popular types of milk—cow, oat, almond, and soy—with some help from this TED-Ed by Jonathan J. O’Sullivan and Grace E. Cunningham, directed by Anton Bogaty.
