Milk, unsurprisingly, has such an inherent appeal for us humans. We drink it straight out of the bottle when the kids aren’t looking and lovingly pour it over their cereals and into their smoothies to make them “strong.” Today, the life-giving liquid comes in all shapes and sizes, and we don’t just mean bottles—if you’re not very mindful of your choice of milk, you’re lucky if it’s actually milk you’re drinking. Taste, texture and especially shelf life should never be put above nutritional value, but this exactly is becoming the rule in Singapore. We decided to fight this by letting you in on these 5 incredible sources of locally or internationally, but always carefully sourced, original or favored, but always nutritious, cow’s, goat’s or almond, but always 100% natural milk delivered to your doorstep by these conscious milk(wo)men of tomorrow! Between these 5, there’s a solution for everyone’s milk problem, be they infants or lactose, glucose or acquired taste intolerant adults.
