Coca Cola launches lactose-free milk

The lemonade company Coca Cola is not associated with healthy food by most people. But now the beverage manufacturer has launched an "improved" version of cow's milk. The product is said to be healthier and more digestible than normal milk. It is also said to cost twice as much.

Beverage manufacturer brings “improved” milk to the market Most people associate Coca Cola with sweet drinks in the first place. For example, it has been denounced for years that their products contain too much sugar or sweeteners. The high consumption of beverages with a high sugar content increases the risk of obesity, obesity or diabetes. But now the company has launched an “improved” version of cow's milk with less sugar and more protein on the US market, as reported by “Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten”.

Product costs twice as much as conventional milk According to the report, the beverage manufacturer claims that the “premium” natural product, which is said to cost twice as much as normal milk, is “raining money”. As the British "Business Insider" writes, Coca Cola claims to have made "improvements" compared to original milk. The “FairLife” drink is lactose-free, has 50 percent more protein, 30 percent more calcium and 50 percent less sugar than regular milk.

Milk as a soft drink for children As it is said, the legislature has only recently changed the conditions so that milk drinks can still be called "milk" even in changed form. So milk should be established as a soft drink for children. Dairy Today magazine reported at the end of last year that half of adults in the United States do not drink milk. In the United States, milk was once considered a healthy natural product that strengthens bones and teeth, for example, and can prevent osteoporosis. But then studies came up again and again that indicated that milk may favor diseases such as asthma or diabetes.

Milk: healthy or unhealthy food? Furthermore, lactose intolerance (lactose intolerance) is diagnosed more and more. Those who suffer from it experience symptoms such as abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea or flatulence after consuming dairy products. Affected people therefore mostly resort to lactose-free milk. However, experts remain controversial as to whether milk should be regarded as healthy or unhealthy food. And whether the new Coca Cola milk is healthier than conventional milk is likely to remain a long issue. In addition to the scientific evidence of possible disease risks, there is also plenty of evidence of the health-promoting effects of milk. Some doctors say that milk could probably even protect against colon cancer and breast cancer. (ad)
