What the Panda Express Nutrition report says about coconut milk and the new pandemic
There’s a new pandemics and it’s coming to your neighborhood milk.
And, if you’ve been eating a lot of dairy, there’s a good chance you’ve noticed it’s making you sick.
So what’s a dairy lover to do?
A new pandems outbreak in China is causing milk production to plummet, and it is prompting milk companies to start rationing milk.
The problem is, the new crop, which is grown in China, has a lot in common with cow’s milk.
The milk that is produced in China tends to be far more acidic, and in the United States, milk is more commonly made with skim or whole milk, which contains the milk’s vitamins, minerals and proteins.
Milk producers in China have noticed that their supply is running out, and have started rationing their supplies.
“In our country, milk production is going down because we have this shortage of milk,” says Dr. Jiaqing Zhang, director of the China Food Technology Institute.
Zhang says the new milk shortage could force dairy farmers to turn to cheaper alternatives like coconut milk.
As a result, China’s milk industry is suffering a severe shortage, and the shortage is hitting dairy producers like the Panda’s.
Zhang’s team is trying to help them by sharing the good news about coconut-milk nutrition.
“There are a number of dairy products that can help alleviate the milk shortage, like coconut cream, milk-replacing products, coconut milk-enriched products, which are all good options,” Zhang says.
In addition to coconut milk, the report also says that it’s possible to increase your vitamin D intake from vitamin D3, and that adding a few tablespoons of organic cane sugar to your milk will help you get more calcium.
There’s more, but you get the idea.
“There’s a lot you can do to boost your vitamin d intake,” Zhang tells The Salt.
“Just like you should consume enough vitamin D for good health, you should also take vitamin D supplements for optimal health.”
As for milk, you can find out if you’re getting enough of it from the Food and Drug Administration.
“The FDA is not in charge of making milk or dairy products, but they’re in charge for making sure milk products are safe to consume,” Zhang said.
“If you have concerns about your milk, or you have any questions about whether milk is safe to drink, you’ll want to talk to your health care provider.”
