Is it Utterly More Healthy to be Dairy-Free?

The debate over whether it’s healthier to live a dairy-free life has been going on for quite some time now. The truth is, when it comes to maintaining optimal health, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Especially for Americans, who have access to foods from all over the world. 

We humans are all uniquely built differently. We handle different foods in different ways. The great thing about being human is that we can choose what we eat. 

Dairy remains a big topic of discussion among nutritionists because it’s rich in protein, but it can also contain a lot of fat. 

So, if you are seeking out foods for your retail or wholesale customers that contain no dairy, then have we got a snack for you: Prime Planet all-natural green plantain Tostones. They’re crunchy, delicious, better for you – and very dairy free! 

Dairy products, which include anything in the milk or cheese family, have been associated with congestion, fatigue, bloating, and stomach pain. People who regularly experience any of the above, should be aware that dairy may be the culprit. Subsequently, they might want to consider reducing and eventually eliminating their dairy intake. Cutting out dairy can seem daunting at first, but there are many dairy substitutes available to make the process easier. 

Benefits of Going Dairy Free 

Human beings are the only species that uses the lactation (milk) of other animals on a regular basis. This alone is reason enough to turn many people “off” from dairy products. 

Eliminating dairy from one’s diet can reduce and even eliminate the symptoms associated with lactose intolerance. Lactose is a sugar found in milk and milk products. Lactose intolerance happens when your small intestine does not make enough of a digestive enzyme called lactase. Lactase breaks down the lactose in food so your body can absorb it. Lactose intolerance is actually more common than many people think. While lactose is an efficient means of providing our babies with nutrition, the truth is, many of us outgrow the need for it. 

Those who have gone without dairy have reported healthier stomachs. That means they’ve had less gas and bloating, and their digestive processes are absorbing more nutrients. They also report “feeling lighter” and “having much more energy.” 

Feeling Heavy? 

Are you bloated and feeling heavy? Don’t blame Prime Planet! We don’t need cows to make delicious Tostones. They are vegetables cooked in vegetable oil, which makes them naturally dairy free. They’re just basic all-natural green plantain chips – sliced, spiced, and cooked to perfection. 

“Fried green plantains are a staple dish among many people of equatorial countries around the world, especially throughout the Caribbean and South and Central America,” says Marie Gonzalez, Prime Planet’s Business Development Manager, adding, “While our cultures do indeed rely on dairy for other food dishes, namely those that contain cheese, it’s important to know that there is no milk or cheese in Tostones. And that’s important to many of our customers.” 

Depending on the specific Tostones flavor (Original, BBQ Lime, Sweet Chili or Habanero), these crunchy snacks also carry important certifications like Vegan and Kosher, which is increasingly important to our retail and wholesale clients seeking “just the right snack” to satisfy their customers’ specific dietary needs – and their taste buds. Prime Planet Tostones are also no-sugar-added, vegan, gluten-free, kosher, and non-GMO – among other great qualities.

But at the end of the day, people who either want or need to avoid dairy products should be mooooved to know they can always enjoy Tostones snack chips without worrying about the effects of lactose.
