Silk vs. Milk

  • We’re
    plant-powered
    and proud

    Choosing Silk is an easy way to steer clear of cholesterol, dairy and lactose—and that's just the beginning of all there is to love about plant-based foods.

Dairy milk is

getting jealous

We’re not really the competitive types, but there’s no denying that Silk® soy, almond, cashew and coconutmilk can really hold their own in the dairy aisle!

50% more calcium

50% more calcium

Some say the craving for great Silk taste is so strong you can feel it in your bones. Maybe that’s because many Silk products have 50% more calcium than dairy milk.1

Zero Cholesterol

Zero cholesterol

Zip. Nada. Zilch. Unlike dairy milk, we score a big fat zero when it comes to cholesterol. That’s one less worry in your glass!

60 calories or less

Lower calories

Our almondmilk’s really got the skinny on cow’s milk, with 6 choices at 60 calories or less per serving—that’s at least 25% fewer calories than skim milk.2

Less fat

Less fat

Looking for saturated fat? We didn’t think so. And our soymilk and almondmilk have a whole lot less of it than their dairy milk counterparts.3

Heart health

Heart-healthy

Did you know soy protein is recognized for its potential role in supporting heart health? You can get a good source of it in most flavors of Silk soymilk—but you can’t get any from a cow!4

Chocolate flavor

We love chocolate

We think of chocolate as a very important food group. And we think our chocolate soymilk, almondmilk and cashewmilk are the best ways to get it. Just saying.
