Studies say that 6,000 years ago, milk was discovered by early Europeans perhaps out of starvation after observing a little calf drinking its mother’s milk. Did you know that the human body was first unable to digest milk?
Later, humans trained their bodies to digest it. However, some people today are still lactose intolerant – milk makes them ill. Evidence shows that people in Mesopotamia in 8000 B.C. used cow’s milk to make butter and cheese! Ancient Egypt and Indian Vedic Civilisation considered the cow sacred and depended on it for dairy products. Today, the whole food industry relies on it.
However, due to the shift towards a healthier lifestyle, people have started extracting milk from plants! Plant-based milk includes almond milk, oat milk, soya milk, peanut milk, sesame milk, coconut milk, and so on.
