Does Adding Flavor Affect the Milk?
There's a wide variety of flavored milks, especially when it comes to nondairy substitutes like soy or hemp milk. Be careful, as flavored milks often have sugar added to them along with a host of other chemicals. If you’re thinking of buying flavored milk, check the nutrition label and buy the milk with the lowest sugar and fewest ingredients. Better yet, buy the flavoring yourself so you know how much is going in.
