19 health benefits of rice milk + recipes

  1. Rice milk has all kinds of advantages and of course you want to know more about them now. Dairy is losing popularity, but it is nice to have a good substitute for milk.

  1. The reason that dairy is less popular has to do with the two main ingredients of dairy, casein and lactose.

  1. If you look at the research data of The China Study, you will immediately understand why you should look for a milk substitute.

  1. This research shows that there is a direct link between chronic health conditions and the intake of animal proteins, especially casein.

  1. And that is exactly the advantage of rice milk, you don't actually have to make any adjustments in your diet. You can simply replace dairy with rice milk.

  2. And that is exactly the advantage of rice milk, you don't really have to make any adjustments in your diet. You can simply replace dairy with rice milk.

  1. In this article I will discuss the 19 benefits of rice milk. That way you can make a good decision whether rice milk will from now on be mixed with the oat flakes or whether you are going for another alternative such as almond milk or coconut milk.

1 You can easily make your own milk from rice.

  1. The rice should actually soak for at least an hour. Then you add three or four cups of water to it. Then you have to blend it.

  1. So if you want to feel full, for example to lose weight then I recommend coconut milk.

3 No lactose

  1. If you have a lactose intolerance, you should just leave dairy. If you don't find out until later in life, rice milk is a good substitute for everything you did with cow's milk. Only in this case you will not be bothered by the fermentation that takes place in your intestines.

  2. If you have a lactose intolerance you should just leave dairy. If you don't find out until later in life, rice milk is a good substitute for everything you did with cow's milk. Only in this case you will not be bothered by the fermentation that takes place in your intestines.

  1. Rice milk is easy to digest and contains no milk sugars, an ideal solution for lactose intolerance.

4 No casein

  1. Casein is a protein that promotes growth. That is great when you are small, but when you are an adult it works more against you than for you. Casein increases inflammation. This is bad because inflammation in your body speeds up the aging process and can cause damage.

  1. Inflammations can, for example, cause cracks or minor damage to the veins. The LDL cholesterol finds that super nice to sit in between. This causes plaque formation and higher blood pressure. By reducing the casein intake you help your body further.

  1. This has emerged in a large-scale study that took place in China, the so-called Chinaâ € “Cornellâ €“ Oxford Project. In this study, dietary habits in regions in China have been mapped.

  1. Then we looked at how often people in those regions suffered from chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease. But we also looked at how often people got cancer. The conclusion that the researchers could draw from the research data was that the consumption of animal proteins in particular played an important role in the development of diseases.

5 No cholesterol

  1. Should you lower your cholesterol and therefore change your diet? Then you can take the rice milk. There is no cholesterol in it at all. So that is already a source that you can safely take without being bothered by it like with cow's milk. In addition, your body does not need cholesterol from food at all. Your liver itself produces the cholesterol that your body needs. So anything you can delete is a bonus.

6 No packaging

  1. Making rice milk yourself also saves packaging material. This reduces your ecological footprint. In addition, rice milk that has been manufactured often comes in a cardboard package that is coated on the inside to prevent it from leaking. That coating can get into your rice milk, causing you to drink that stuff that you don't want to drink and that is of no use to your body.

  1. Today we are very much exposed to toxins that enter our food through packaging materials. It's only very small amounts, but still. During your life you will get more and more of these plasticizers in your body. The annoying thing about these toxins is that it is very difficult to get rid of them. Toxins are stored by the body in fat cells.

  1. The best way to avoid coming into contact with all those coatings is to prepare your own drinks more often. But that can only be sustained if this preparation is easy. That is the great advantage of rice milk. Rice milk is really easy to prepare, even a child can make rice milk. See for yourself:

  1. Now you may be thinking â € œNice all those benefits of what is not in there, but then I might as well drink water. ”So here is the benefits of what is there in it.

7 Vitamin B1

  1. Rice contains vitamin B1 you need for the functioning of your heart and nerves. If you have too little vitamin B1, this can cause depression because your nerves no longer function properly. In addition, you may feel that you are low on energy. Vitamin B1 is important for enzymes that obtain energy from carbohydrates and sugars.

8 Vitamin B2

  1. Just like vitamin B1, vitamin B2 is important for the energy supply of your body. In this case, it's not just about the energy that is derived from carbohydrates. It is also about the energy that your body can get from proteins and fats. So if you go on a diet, vitamin B2 is very important to actually burn your fat.

9 Vitamin B6

  1. Vitamin B6 is a vitamin that has a versatile function. It is important for metabolism, hormones, growth, immune system and the production of blood. So you really can't get enough of this.

  1. Vitamin B6 is needed for example for the production of serotonin, dopamine, adrenaline and noradrenaline. Very important to have a happy feeling and to be able to react quickly in dangerous situations.

  1. In case of a deficiency, you also suffer from anemia because the blood production process is deregulated by the deficiency.

10 Folic acid

  1. Like vitamin B6, folic acid is important for the production of blood cells, both white and red blood cells. Folic acid is a vitamin that you do not automatically get enough of in the Netherlands, so every piece of folic acid is a nice bonus.

  1. Besides being good for your blood and immune system, folic acid is also important if you want to become or are pregnant. This is because folic acid is important for the development of the nervous system and it starts early in pregnancy.

11 Potassium

  1. Potassium is an important mineral for regulating the moisture in your body. For example, if you retain a lot of moisture, you will often be prescribed water tablets. An important component of these water tablets is potassium. If you retain too much fluid, potassium will cause your kidneys to transfer this fluid to your bladder.

  1. Due to the diuretic effect, your blood pressure can also drop because the liquid volume in the blood vessels decreases.

12 Calcium

  1. Calcium is known to be important for your bones and teeth, but it has many more functions than that. Calcium is also important for crusting if you get injured. It's important for your cell division, the birth of new cells, and that push-up really won't work without calcium.

  1. Other minerals don't get anywhere without calcium. Calcium is important for the transport of other minerals to other parts of the body

  1. Calcium is also important for fertilization. Who would have thought rice milk could be so important?

13 Phosphorus

  1. Phosphorus is one of the most important minerals we have. Phosphorus is needed, for example, to give the bones strength. Phosphorus does this in conjunction with calcium. In addition, phosphorus is important for the temporary storage of energy in the body.

14 Iron

  1. Iron is important for oxygen transport in your blood. Your body absorbs about 25% of the iron from animals and only 10% of iron from plant sources such as rice milk, but if you are a vegetarian or vegan it is important to eat as much food as possible that can extract iron from. .

15 Unsaturated fats

  1. In addition, there are unsaturated fats in rice milk. Your body needs unsaturated fats to remove LDL cholesterol. In addition, unsaturated fats also help to lower whole cholesterol levels.

  1. If you suffer from diabetes, unsaturated fat can also make you less resistant to insulin. But on the other hand, be careful with rice milk and diabetes, it contains a lot of carbohydrates, so your blood sugar can rise.

  1. Unsaturated fats are known to offer protection against all kinds of nasty conditions that we have to contend with in our current society. High blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol are the biggest obstacles to a long and healthy life.

  1. And you know that by now, the nutrition center, with a new slice of five, recommends fish twice a week because of the unsaturated fats.

  1. Now rice is not a fatty fish, but still. A cup of freshly squeezed rice milk contains about one to one and a half grams of unsaturated fats. Not bad, if you compare that a portion of tuna contains about the same amount of unsaturated fat.

16 Determine your own calories

  1. If you make your own rice milk, you can also determine how many calories it contains. After all, you decide with how much water you mix the rice milk. However, the fewer calories the more watery it becomes, but that water also has its advantages.

17 Water

  1. Your body consists of about 70% water. You sweat out a liter every day, even if you don't do anything. To function properly it is important that your moisture level is maintained. The water in the rice milk hydrates your body and lets you do your thing.

  1. For example, a lack of moisture can cause headaches. The hangover after a night out is a good example of this.

18 Lots of antioxidants

  1. Rice milk contains more selenium and manganese than other milks. These are important antioxidants that target your free radicals. In addition, they protect you against infections and diseases that can occur through damage to the DNA, for which those free radicals are usually responsible. The rice milk can therefore boost your immune system.

19 vitamin E

  1. When you make rice milk from brown rice, which I highly recommend, you also get a load of vitamin E in your rice milk. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant with many benefits for the tissues in your body. Vitamin E, for example, is good for your skin and veins. Arteriosclerosis can be prevented if you get enough vitamin E. It reduces inflammation, causing less damage to the inside of your blood vessels.

  1. This in turn prevents the build-up of plaque and can therefore reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases such as high blood pressure and strokes. Vitamin E is thus a very important ally for good cardiovascular health.

Recipes:

  1. To get you started I have added three breakfasts so that you can start right away when you have the ingredients at home. Even if you don't have a filter bag yet, you can already start. You probably have brown rice or brown rice at home and some fruit. You can also filter the rice milk with a tea towel. So immediately put some rice for an hour a week and you can already make your rice milk. Rice milk can be kept in the fridge for a few days.

  1. For those who don't like to chew on good bread in the morning, I have another dish that you can eat quite a bit. Rice milk is the liquid from this dish that ensures this. Rice milk is an important source of carbohydrates and therefore perfect for a sporty day. The apple in this dish is seasonal and adds fiber to the meal. These ensure that your blood sugar does not spike enormously. The blueberries also provide extra flavor and are a source of antioxidants.

  1. Rice milk is really super easy to make. Put a cup of rice in the blender and four cups of water. Let this soak for an hour. Then turn on the blender until the rice is ground. Put the rice pudding through the filter bag and you will squeeze the rice milk straight out into a bowl.

  1. Add washed pieces of apples and blueberries and you have a very healthy breakfast without casein or lactose.

  1. Another breakfast for the people who find it difficult to eat in the morning. To get the best out of the rice milk, making rice milk yourself is the best solution. No plasticizers, no e-numbers. Then you can add blueberries and pieces of pear. The rice milk is healthy because it is a source of unsaturated fats, fiber, but also the somewhat faster carbohydrates for a real kickstart of the day.

  1. Ingredients:

  1. Why healthy?

  1. Rice milk is also very easy to make. It is best if you soak the rice the night before making this breakfast. There should be about three times as much water in the blender as the amount of rice that goes into it. The next morning turn on the blender and you get a delicious rice pudding. The rice milk is obtained by squeezing the mash through a filter bag over a large bowl. Wash the pear and cut the skin off. Cut the pear into pieces. Add the pieces of pear and blueberries to your rice milk and you have a delicious healthy breakfast.

  1. Do you also find it difficult to eat bread in the morning? Then a rice milk with oatmeal and forest fruits is a good alternative. The fresh taste activates your day in a positive way. The forest fruits give your rice milk and oatmeal dish a cheerful color. That's not the only thing that makes your morning mood disappear. The thought of how healthy this is will help too.

  1. Rice milk is full of B vitamins that are important for obtaining energy from food. The oatmeal is full of dietary fiber that improves bowel movements. In addition, oatmeal contains many complex carbohydrates so that the energy is absorbed evenly and you get a stable blood sugar level. You also get the energy from forest fruits, such as blackberries, blueberries and other fruits from the forest. They are healthy because of the large amount of vitamin C.

  1. Ingredients:

Finallyâ €!

  1. After all these advantages, the choice for an alternative milk is of course quickly made. I do have to say that rice milk has more carbohydrates compared to coconut milk and almond milk. This is not a problem for normal people, but if you suffer from diabetes you can also choose another alternative plant-based milk.

  1. What is important is that rice milk does not have many of the disadvantages of cow's milk. It contains no lactose and casein. As a result of which you have less bowel problems and inflammation. There is also no cholesterol in it, which is good if you want to lower your cholesterol. The calories are also much lower than normal cow's milk, so even losing weight should be fine if you replace the cow's milk with rice milk.

  1. In addition, it also has all kinds of benefits from a series of B vitamins that ensure that your energy balance is well regulated and that the intestines and nervous system can perform their function properly. It is even healthy for your blood circulation and reduces the risk of developing cardiovascular disease due to all kinds of factors.
